Devil May Cry gets a release date

Devil May Cry gets a release date

Initially set for a Fall release (as many games), Devil May Cry from Ninja Theory is now definitely set to release on January 15th in Europe and North America. Good news for PC gamers as the title is also in development for that platform and will be out later the same year. Capcom also shares news screens of the game that introduce the character Kat.


Kat

Kat is a former runaway that joined The Order very early in her life. She is a medium and a gifted psychic who can see into Limbo, the demon realm, but not directly interact with it in the way that Dante does. She is the right hand girl to the Leader of The Order and devotes her life to him, often putting herself in grave danger to gather intelligence from Limbo.

There is a sweet innocence about Kat’s world view and logic, but when it comes to her specialist subject, the demon realm, she is an undoubted expert. Kat is The Order’s ‘eyes and ears’ and is tasked with guiding Dante on his mission through Limbo.

Can't wait. Want to know how to innovate the hack and slash genre, you learn to spin a good yarn. Ninja theory are known for telling immersive cinematc stories and almost to a fault, which is why this collaborative relationship with Capcom leaves me frothing at the mouth at the possibilities.

I love the DMC series too much to not give this a go, but, I've still got a heavy chip on my shoulder. Dante is arguably my favourite video game character of all time, so, naturally changing him irritates me, but, we'll see.

Haha I love the subversion in the first pic, instead of a girl showing her legs, it's Dante, probably that naked pizza scene in the beginning I've heard about.

with these screens ill reconsider DMC :D Nice !

Very boring unattractive character. Bring back Trish at least... Or... No nvm, THIS Dante doesn't deserves to even look at Trish.

I thought you were going to end that with "This Dante wouldn't be interested in Trish"

It's a prequel...lol

Won't be getting this. Crapcom will screw up all hype for this game when its announced that you pay extra for something ridiculous. I don't know what it is yet but I am sure it will blow the internet away yet again. Also they will piss off 360 owners when they release an exclusive PS3 Prologue and Epilogue for the game because that is the format that all the other game were on. Oh wait no they won't because they are in bed with Microsoft this 6 years now. Also Unreal engine 3.

I keep hearing it's a reboot. So what is it?
Commented on 2012-05-22 11:10:49
It's a reebot. I don't care what anyone says, this is NOT the same universe as the original DMC games.

The shite character design just keeps on coming. I mean really, that'sa cool female lead? Whatever happened to Lady? She was awesome :P
Commented on 2012-05-22 11:42:32
that's a realistic design I suppose, cuz I keep seeing underaged ugly chicks like this on a street every day in incredible numbers. I hope this game fails big time and they'll be forced to go back to DMC 4-like Dante and Trish (but plz avoid Nero or alike this time..).
Commented on 2012-05-22 12:41:19
nice to see they cast Avril Lavigne in there
Commented on 2012-05-22 13:09:49
I like the girl character. No over-titted-super-sexy-video-game chick. I dont think she is ugly, like TheVice is saying.
Commented on 2012-05-22 13:24:34
Mainly ugly costume design, and that fugly tattoo thing on her face and hands.

Thi game looks like a goddamn hipster designed it. Then again, maybe i shoudn't be too suprised by that ince the head honco at Ninja Theory looks like a hipster douche too;

Looks like they designed Dante after him :P

been like this for years now, xmas is fucking lame for gamers now :(

Ever since I heard about this game I just can't understand the logic behind it. They are giving DMC, a game that helped define 3d combat action, to a western developer. There's tons of great games made in the west, but combat action games were never among them. Devil May Cry, Bayonetta, Ninja Gaiden, God Hand, Viewtiful Joe, ZOE 2nd runner, Onimusha are all japanese. They are just good at making combat action games, why give one of the best (if not THE best) franchise to a western developer? Imagine Germans suddenly deciding that Australians are gonna make a better Mercedes than them. Makes no freakin' sense.

The only thing that could've saved this game somewhat was a hot female sidekick... NT fails at this again :/
Commented on 2012-05-22 19:13:49
She doesn't look bad at all, in fact she's hot. Her full lips and all. I also like that Dante has a better look design than when he was first revealed but of course those of you who don't really care for this reboot won't care for any tweaks in graphics since it's not the Dante we all know and love.

No matter, to each their own right? Yep...right! So with that being said, I'll be scooping this up and hope E3 shows more of this game so we can possibly get more people to come around to giving this a go...this is the Dante we have for now, so by me loving the Series so much and knowing this is a Reboot and younger Dante...I'm willing to accept that...
Commented on 2012-05-22 19:21:35
She looks like some random emo style chick from facebook or any random social community whatsoever site...
She doesn't look that bad but... I don't know. She has that certain "generic" look.

No...there are different forms to every type of human...and that Photo comparison was just ways off. Ugly as hell female, and for you to even compare shows your lack of ability to distinguish to completely different Models...damn, I would hate to know how you think of the new Lora Croft...lol

But hey...to each their own...
