Tokyo Game Show, the event where them crazy japanese show of their upcoming video games has been and gone and I'd like to share my thoughs and opinions on the newly announced Devil May Cry.
Devil May Cry. Easily my favourite hack 'n' slash series ever is getting a reboot by developer Ninja Theory (known for Heavenly Sword and the soon to be released Enslaved) and Dante (I really hope it isn't him) looks like this.
I don't hate the new look entirely. I would've really liked it have they not shoved Dante's name in there. A lot of speculation has been going on and one person's theory suggests this is Sparda taking on Dante's name. Notice how the Dante in the trailer has red eyes whereas both Dante and Virgil have blue eyes. Another is that this kid is an imposter and the real Dante will show up soon enough to take his name back. Grasping at straws much?
Another thing I find worrying is "Dante's" new weapon. Some kind of scythe which looks like it can morph into other weapons.
This could mean a new streamlined battle system and possibly the removal of additional weapons. Or after each boss fight their power fuses with this scythe to grant it more power. I don't know, this just doesn't seem like Devil May Cry. What do you think?
And to finish up a couple of related images which I found hilarious.
