Devil May Cry – Gamescom 2011 Trailer, Screens and Artwork
When the reboot of Devil May Cry was announced, Capcom gave themselves a mountain to climb with their fans. Most people decried the new “emo” looking Dante, and were extremely worried about the game. But let’s not forget, the combat is all important in DMC, and finally we have some footage to see how the title is coming along, straight from Gamescom 2011.
Aside from that, we’ve also got some new screenshots and artwork. So, are we still worried about the game? Not so much!
Detailing Dante’s early years and set against a contemporary backdrop, DmC Devil May Cry will retain the stylish action, fluid combat and self assured protagonist that have defi ned the iconic series but inject a more brutal and visceral edge.
The Dante of DmC is a young man discovering and coming to terms with what it means to be the child of a demon and an angel. This split personality has a major impact on gameplay with Dante being able to call upon angel and demon abilities at will, transforming his Rebellion sword on the fly to dramatically affect both combat and movement.
For DmC Capcom has teamed up with UK development studio, Ninja Theory, renown for delivering action titles with compelling characters and narrative coupled with high production values. The combination of Ninja Theory’s expertise and Capcom’s unrivalled heritage in producing combat focused action titles will ensure that this latest addition to the multi-million selling series will remain true to the Devil May Cry DNA so cherished bythe fans, while bringing a new level of cinematic quality to the title.
Devil May Cry is due out in 2012, for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
