New DmC trailer takes extended look at demonic Devil May Cry reboot

Though we haven’t seen much of the Devil May Cry reboot DmC in person, each new video of the somewhat controversial project renews our hope that Capcom and Ninja Theory are making something worthwhile. And now that old school fans of the series can rest easy knowing it takes place in an alternate timeline, everyone can just watch and enjoy this big chunk of new footage from the game.

Ninja Theory looks to adding its own unique flare to the series like possibly intentional nod the cult classic film They Live’s the subliminal posters. We will admit though we aren’t in love with Dante’s voice in this trailer. In case you didn’t know Ninja Theory also developed Heavenly Sword and the underrated Enslaved (now on 360's Games on Demand). DmC is scheduled for release some time next year.

    "he has bad hair" "he's too skinny" "he looks like he's on meth" How about shut up about the looks of ONE thing and worry about the game perhaps?

    Well, I don't like his voice, but it's the soundtrack that lets me down. It's going more Indie emo stuff, when the originals had that awesome blaring metal vibe. Still, the addition of the Devil Bringer-like abilities to the sword look pretty cool, and some of the weapons seem awesome, like the ice-looking scythe. Maybe we'll get the chance to do some customisation to some of the weapons, like we did to the Devil trigger in #2? All in All, I'm feeling less apprehensive about it, but I'm remaining Skeptical

    THE DREAM IS COLLAPSING!!! Ahem... anyway, I'm actually getting pretty excited about this, which is cool considering I was one of the original fanboys who knee jerked at the original reveal. I'm pretty convinced that New Dante can pull it off, and might even give us a fresh new spin on Big D. The gameplay looks fine and dandy so far, so I now I just wait to see if Ninja Theory can bring in some fantastic plot and characters (like with Enslaved). Oh, and BRING BACK VERGIL!

    This looks great. I like that last line, and I didn't mind his voice. I'm glad we're getting to see a bit more of this game. every glimpse gets me really excited. I can't wait for this.

    This looks amazing i dont care what anyone says, especially since i dint care for any of the previous devil may cry games, and its being made by ninja theory; hell yea
  • StoneDreadnaught - November 2, 2011 11:06 p.m.

    Y'know, I LIKE the voice for new Dante. It's not GruffDude McAction, who eats a steady diet of gravel and chewing glass, it's not 'emo sounding' like he was first supposedly shown in the announcement trailer; It's just a voice. And Dante himself, doesn't look anything special either (certainly not even partially demonic), so I think it works. The other thing, that I'm surprised that hasn't been mentioned: THERE'S F**KING COLOR! Color is making a comeback in a big way! GOD I am so tired of the last few years of big-budget games being just dull, grey and lifeless! Ninja Theory is right up there on my 'Loved Developers' list, right next to Platinum Games, Bioware, and People Can Fly/Flying Wild Hog.

    Hey, you got your Silent Hill in my Devil May Cry!

    I really like how the aesthetic design is shaping up. the detail of shifting landscapes looks pretty cool as well, and really, the combat seems to be as fast and slick as any good DMC game before it, which has been the main complaint and concern from most people as the combat in both previous Ninja Theory games was the weak link. But so long they get that part right, i think will be a pretty darn good game. Specially since I trust Ninja Theory will deliver the best story for the franchise yet. (Let's face it, as cool as the other DMC's are, the story is always crap and a mess.) Honestly, the only think that doesn't quite sit right with me is the enemy design we've seen so far. We've mostly seen just one kind of enemy grunt, and a few bigger enemies/Bosses. And while kinda creepy, they don't look particularly memorable or stylish. I just hope there is more enemy variety, and that not all of them will have that samey color hue and feel.

    I'd agree with you on most points but it bugged me you had to complain about the stories of the previous games. I mean its entirely subjective and if that's what you believe then that's fine but there are times when generalizations like that come up and they tend to be untrue. I thought the previous games stories were fairly simple but not particularly all over the place and badly done. Again though if you do believe the stories are actually sh*t then that's fine. I don't want to sound like some silly fan boy I just felt I had to write out my opinion. I agree with your concern about the enemy design though. Nothing that stands out or looks cool in terms of design. I'm willing to give this game a try if it gets a good reception by reviewers but so far I'm not blown away by anything being shown here.
  • BladedFalcon - November 3, 2011 6:39 a.m.

    Well, the thing is, All DMCs (1 trough 4, and yes, i have played all four.) do have a concrete goal for their story, and it's alright that it's simple. But well,a t least for me, sometimes the game is too busy trying to be stylish and crazy that it never really bothers to make any sense of the whole journey that happens mid game. The one game that had the better story was DMC3, and that game still suffered from a lot of pointless stuff like pretty much anything that had to do with Arkham. And again, my opinion IS subjetive, and it's fine if you liked the stories. But I mean, when compared to Enslaved or Heavenly Sword, who both also had rather simple premises, but the whole story made sense and it fleshed out the characters through their journey. I do believe this is what this DMC is gonna benefit the most from compared to previous entries.
  • rapmasterRH - November 3, 2011 3:55 p.m.

    Nope that is completely fine. Like you said its your opinion. No complaints from me on that. I personally like that the story can seem just outright crazy at times. I've always thought as The Devil May Cry series is like bringing an anime to life in a way. Lots of crazy things do happen which at times which make you want to ask wtf? But in the end its the charismatic character and the gameplay which are the most important things in Devil May Cry. That's why it seems a little odd that people want his character to seem more grounded and realistic and are very happy with this change. Don't get me wrong I like more thought out stories and characters that have more layers to them and seem some what real such as Uncharted's Drake and even Batman (I realize that may sound stupid and some people may have to stretch their imagination quite a bit but I hope you can understand what I mean by these comparisons). However, the Devil may Cry series has always been fun purely because of those two factors for me. That's why this digging deeper for a more realistic Dante was a turn off initially. Still I'm willing to give this game a try all the same. Like you said Ninja Theory seem to have a good track record for creating interesting stories and characters. We'll just have to see I suppose.

    I am immediately okay with any game featuring a grappling hook mechanic. Rock on, Ninja Theory.
  • yoshiking - November 2, 2011 5:47 p.m.

    Wow... I don't care what anyone says, this looks real promising. Everything about this trailer screams DMC... no really, it does.
  • CancerMan - November 2, 2011 5:30 p.m.

    Looking smooth.
  • MyCoolWhiteLies - November 2, 2011 5:24 p.m.

    I don't care what people say, I dig the look of all the new DMC stuff. Ninja Theory has always been great at character, presentation, and story. Here's hoping they bring their A-Game when creating the combat system. Heavenly Sword and Enslaved were fun, but never quite up to the standard set by DMC3.
  • hester2 - November 2, 2011 5:22 p.m.

    The action looks very DMC, and it's nice to see they are including what looks to be the grapple arm from DMC4. I had a lot of complaints about that game, but that was a pretty cool addition.
