The newest trailer for the Devil May Cry reboot by Heavenly Sword creator Ninja Theory is full of quite a bit of unexpected platforming. There are some great moments for fans of the action series though, as parallel universe young-Dante (opens in new tab) does battle with a giant boss.
Platforming may have gone out of style circa 2005 after Kameo: Elements of Power (totally underrated game (opens in new tab)) was released as an Xbox 360 launch title. Even Ratchet and Clank has sort of started to fall off the map. But it's hard to care too much when DMC does it with so much style.
DMC was delayed (opens in new tab) out of 2012 back in May. It will instead be launching on January 15, 2013.
