New DmC Details on Emo Dante and His Weapons

New DmC Details on Emo Dante and His WeaponsWhat better way to start off your Saturday morning, than by looking at pictures of the upcoming DmC: Devil May Cry. Capcom have given us some new details on the reveamped emo Dante and a little bit of information on the weapons he wields. Dante is like any good emo kid, he feels “like an outcast”. Dante’s hatred toward demons comes from growing up in various foster homes and such that were ran by demons. When he stepped out of line, those demons would turn to, “torture and violence”. So, new emo Dante has a bit of a chip on his shoulder from previous experiences with demons. Surely the clue is in the name though, demons.

We’ve also received some information on Dante’s sword, Rebellion, and his guns, Ebony & Ivory. Rebellion was given to him by his father Sparda, to protect him against “demons that hunt him”. How Dante got Ebony & Ivory is a mystery…although, there are some rumours that he acquired these from *Paul McCartney & Stevie Wonder.

Capcom gave us some insight as to the actual design process for the weapons too. Ebony & Ivory have “ornate embossing to give the guns a feeling of mystique and uniqueness”. Rebellion is designed so that it looks like it has “historical significance coupled with a demonic heritage”.
