Capcom's TGS conference seems to be littered with great announcements, one of the most notable being the latest iteration of the Devil May Cry franchise, simply named DmC.
The game is being co-developed as a collaboration between Capcom and UK-based Ninja Theory (Heavenly Sword
) and designed to reboot the series.
They've said that the game will retain the "Devil May Cry DNA" - stylish action, rewarding combat and a brash, smart-talking protagonist - but infused with dark, brutal gameplay, a psychological slant and a contemporary backdrop, as well as a younger Dante.
DmC will depict a duplicitous world where nothing is ever as it seems and the line between good and evil is constantly blurred. Spurred into action by the promises of a trusted relation, Dante bursts into this world intent on revenge at any cost. DmC will retain the series’ signature mix of sword and gunplay but add additional weapons, all new powers and a revitalised gameplay system as players encounter the game’s devilish mix of enemies and navigate the rich, interactive environment.
Rest assured, despite the use of the word "reboot," this won't ruin the franchise. With both developers working on the game together, it's looking to blend the best Western and Eastern influences, while remaining a definite classic DMC title. The whole project is being overseen by Hedeaki Itsuno, who has worked on all the other DMC games so far, and was the lead director of both DMC2 and http://www.trueachievements.com/Devil-May-Cry-4-xbox-360.htm
No release date was announced for the game.
