The new Devil May Cry (shortened to 'DmC' to be precise) has gone and got itself a brand new trailer, featuring Dante's trademark combo-based combat. I appreciate Bayonetta is itself a pseudo-follow-up to Devil May Cry, but the scenery in this new dmc bears more than a passing resemblance to the city of Vigrid (before it gets all lava-filled) in Platinum Games' masterpiece. Is it bad to emulate the game that stole from you? Have a look and see what you think:
There doesn't seem to be much love for the DMC franchise at the moment, perhaps down to Dante's new Westernised look. Or maybe it's the fact that Bayonetta perfected this genre over a year ago, making everything else feel like an also-ran. Still, we definitely want Dante to wow us like he used to, so we're keen to see more.
