DmC: Devil May Cry video shows a world that wants to kill Dante

Though it was announced over a year ago and we’ve yet to see a playable build of the game, we’re still excited for DmC, the Devil May Cry reimagining. Partially it’s because we have high hopes based on it being developed by Ninja Theory, but also because we keep seeing promising new footage of the title. This most recent trailer highlights the scary world hiding under what we perceive, a realm only special people like Dante can see…

After checking out the combat last week, this new footage shows us that not all the challenges will involve juggling demons with bullets. We expected some platforming elements, but this intense, trippy take on it looks remarkable. Unlike games such as Uncharted, things aren’t falling apart accidentally into obvious platforming challenges; some unseen force is trying to kill you by reshaping reality around you.

Classic Devil May Cry fans might still object to Dante’s new look, we hope they at least can appreciate the creativity on display here. We have no more specific a date than 2012 for DmC, but they have to publically show the game at some point, right? Videos like these at least prove the game exists.

    I am loving this so far. I feel like I'm the only one who is embracing some change to the series, but I am absolutely excited for it.

    You're not the only one. I can't wait for this game to come out. I seriously had a dream last night that it got a release date for January.

    Man, this isn't Devil May Cry. This isn't even Dante. It's Harry Friggen Potter! Just look at him! I'm not very pleased, personally. I'd rather play the PS2 games again.

    It's looking impressive. But I'll wait to pass judgement until it releases

    looks cool.

    That looked AWESOME! My one issue is that it doesn't seem like whatever is trying to kill you is effective at laying traps though... I mean, if I could bend reality like that, I feel like Dante wouldn't stand as much of a chance. All the same, this has very much a dreamlike quality to it that makes it bewilderingly cool. Looking forward to how this will turn out.

    Definitely looks original, to say the least. i think, anyway. Still, I can't understand why, if they can reshape all of reality around him, they don't just, like, implode his skull or something. And WHO the FECK is that creepy see-trough part-bald chick?

    From what I've gathered, she is a companion that you come to know throughout the game. I've seen her in most of the previews, so she's an ally.
