More and more news is coming in from Tokyo Game Show, and this time we’re throwing it over to Capcom for an update on the new Devil May Cry game, simply titled DMC. Though with today’s naming conventions, it should have been titled The Devil May Cry. Alas, one cannot get everything.
DMC is being developed by Ninja Theory, the creators of Heavenly Sword and the upcoming Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. They certainly know their way around acrobatic combat if the released teaser trailer is to be believed, which you can find after the cut.
The trailer features what appears to be a younger version of Dante seemingly trapped in an asylum and fighting some demons at the same time. The CG trailer basically looks like a cross between Bayonetta and a SAW movie, being all gritty and realistic while at the same time being batshit insane.
The press release confirms that the game will be released on the PS3 and Xbox 360, and Capcom claims the game will “redefine the franchise”.
“Set against a contemporary backdrop, 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.”
My thoughts? I honestly don’t like Dante’s new look. He looks like a goth punker gone wrong.
