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 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.
And maybe kickstarter debacles, like the Yogcast thing, have taught people the legitimacy of risk. (0 minute ago)
And the article is from 2010, long before KickStarter and the indie movement really became a thing. I believe today is much better to self-publish if you're a small/medium size developer. (3 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: I thought the same thing about other industries, it's the same everywhere. But I didn't know about the developer/publisher royalties ratio being so out of balance. (5 minutes ago)
The indie scene may not lead to success for all participants, but it's also more viable than ever.. so.. there's that. (18 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: I haven't read it yet.. but the quote seems like common sense at this point. Vidya games is a big business. You could say the same thing about many large industries, especially entertainment. (18 minutes ago)
@Jin187: Yes.. assuming an imaginary release schedule is definitely logic. (23 minutes ago)
The article is long, but I really recommend everyone at least reads the "In retrospect do you believe that Outerlight should have self-published the game?" section, sheds light in the business side. (24 minutes ago)
