Fans of the Devil May Cry
series were thrown a huge curve ball when the announcement trailer
for DmC: Devil May Cry
was revealed. The main qualm, was that the saga's main protagonist, Dante, had a drastic new look
. News article comments and internet forums had fans stunned and largely up in arms.
The young Dante looks to have filled out just a bit
--whether intentional or not--. With this slightly updated look, and some time, some have warmed up to DmC somewhat. What would really soothe the pain, would be if the game played well. Series newcomers Ninja Theory (Heavenly Sword
) look to give a fresh take on Devil May Cry
. However, the gameplay footage features many of the common staples of the of previous titles, such as the gun-play, combos, and aerials.
As a bonus we have ten screenshots, and three bits of concept art to pass along.DmC: Devil May Cry
's release date is still TBA. You can tide yourself over with the Devil May Cry HD Collection
, which itself has no release date, but is rumored to be released early February of 2012.
