DMC: Devil May Cry - Gamescom Trailer

Thank goodness they are working together against that whole demon thing.

Watch Video

oh NT, they try so hard but never come off as anything more than insecure dullards.

Looks fun. I will wait for reviews for this game though.

Well this game continues to look fucking awesome. I never cared much about Devil May Cry before, it always looked pretty stupid (Plus I didn't have a PS2), but if they can pull this off then count me as a fan. At the very least Ninja Theory are better developers than Capcom have proven themselves to be lately.

Plus, they could really use a win. Heavenly Sword and Enslaved are both very good games and I don't think either sold well.

Nice trailer. Colour me interested.

Dante looks like he comes from Jersey Shore with a Union Jack sewn on his jacket. Does this mean he comes from Geordie Shore?

The Virgil clone caved in way too easily. This looks totally wrong.

Well it is a trailer. They only have 3 minutes to get to the point. It will most likely be a longer scene in game.

All the vergil butthurt fans... DANCE, PUPPETS , DANCE, Muahahah!

I'm so looking forward to this game now with some vergil swept back hair yamato pwnage.

Seems like I just saw most of the substantial plot-lines for this game in chronological order, in this trailer. Why even play the game?

I've had my fill of bad voice acting and writing from the trailer alone. I'll wait for reviews, but I don't see this drawing me into DMC.

I cannot describe in words how pissed off I am now.

Captcha - dueling banjos. If only. If only.

Well it is supposed to be a prequel, but wasn't Vergil suppose to despise humanity and embrace his demonic heritage to the point that he didn't give one hot steamy shit about people dying around him as long as his goals were met?

I think I'd pick this up when it hits the bargain bin, even if it takes a while.

Actually it's an alternate universe which is why they're doing stupid crap like this in the first place

I'm not that into the Devil May Cry franchise (or anything Capcom related really) I've only played 1 and 2, but isn't Dante supposed to be...fun? What's with this weird so serious Twilight angle they've gone for?

reckon they should have kept quite about virgil, would have been a nicer surprise if you only found out when playing, also i hope that women isn't taken out to early in the game, the whole world bendy powers of hers seems fun, still so pumped for this game!

I cannot get over how awesome this game looks.

Having said that, I can't help but feel that Vergil was a plot twist...

Speaking of which, coop? Please?

Excuse me,did you just judge a !Gameplay!-focused game by ''looking at it''?
Not to mention that a video game is a medium that REQUIRES input form a player.
It wouldn't be such a bad idea to play the source material for this game before labeling it as crap and the other one as gold.
All 4 games are on Ps3 and 360, the first 3 as a HD collection and the 4th as it's own game

Also you're comparing Capcom,a big company that works as a publisher and consists of multiple development teams,to a dev-only studio.

I don't had the feeling that i just watched something that was worth being named Devil May cry.
For a moment i just thought that i had watched one of those chick flicks about superhuman-''HAWT GUYZ'' savin the world and being angsty at the same time.

DmC fails to step into the original's shoes.
The originals were cheesy,whacky and never tried too hard to be serious or emotional and they embraced these elements,they weren't afraid to go over-the-top. Sure there were serious moments but these were shortlived and never lasted longer than one cutscene as dante continued to be the cocky badass he is.

This...it tries too hard to be taken seriously,it looks stupid and moronic.This looks like it can easily drag on for the entire second half of the game.
Sorry for those who love this kind of bullshit,it's just how i see it

Also what's with vergil?
What have they done to him?
Sure,they try to keep Dante they same as he was before(they still fail to do it completely)(and aside from the looks,which are still UGLY as hell),but they completely redo vergil?
Where is his rivalry towards his brother?
Where is his hate and despising for humanity and embrace for his demonic(or angelic,whoever thought of THAT stupid BS)origin
Where is his ever growing thirst for might and power?
I see it nowhere,not a single trace of it.

and lemme guess? ''vergil'' will sacrifice himself to save dante from some hazard caused by the final boss for some ''SUPAH-EMOSHUNAL'' moment?

Sorry NT, DMC1 and DMC3 did it the better way.

All of my rage. ALL OF IT.

How DARE they collectively shit on Vergil? I can see why, if you're going to shit on the canon already why not go the whole hog amiright?

Ninja Theory, you have earned my disappointment.

I am asking anybody even remotely interested in this game, NOT to buy it. If you have to at least see or play it, buy it preowned or rent it. That way they won't get a damn cent.

People, let's be serious, this game is the very end of the DMC franchise.
We're talking about Capcom here.
If DmC sells well,Capcom will shit on the original series and milk the heck out of this ''Parallel Universe''crap with seuquels and prequels and everything there is.
If the game sells like shit, Capcom will assume that people lost interest in DMC,possibly giving up the franchise(reboot or not) altogether.
The only phoenix down DMC has left is the HD collection,if it outsells DmC it might give capcom the CPT.OBVIOUS hint that we want the old series back

I played the demo of the fourth game, and felt it was very repetitive. Also I don't need to play something to think it "looked" stupid. Poorly translated dialogue and that one scene where he makes a giant heart out of rock make it a little hard to take it seriously. For the record I never said "crap" I said stupid. No More Heroes and Mortal Kombat are both pretty stupid but still remain a blast and a half to play. Devil May Cry's stupid just wasn't my thing.

Still, I'm only judging the first three games based on the same criteria other people are judging this new one.

Why wouldn't I? It looks really good. And Ninja Theory deserve the support. Soooo I think I'll just buy it new anyway.

This is why I've bought it twice from different places. It's also why I've secretly been practising both voodoo and hypnotism to get others to buy it.

Why would you want the old series back? This is just like, my opinion, man, but the franchise only had one good game. After the first one it quickly stagnated both in gameplay and other aspects. The masturbatory cutscenes of DMC 4 were so tiresome they made the Matrix sequels look interesting by comparison.

Vergil doesn't even have the same type of sword, shows how much research ninja theory does on the real series.

Also the story seems to come down to YOU ARE THE DEMONS DONTE ANON IS LEGUN, what the fuck

Maybe I'm being prejudice due to his dastardly slicked-back hair, but is anyone else expecting Virgil to betray us? Maybe?

The fanboyism in this thread......it burns

Why does Virgil look more like Dante than Dante?

Well at least ONE of those floating towers has a giant circular arena at the top.
And of course he's always holding his scabbard (containing a completely RATIONALLY sized blade instead of wearing it on his back like any sensible Japanese character, so yeah he's probably possessed from the start.

Amen to That

Seriously okay so they've gone for something different but for Christs sake the story in the previous games were not goddamn Shakespeare and yes I would prefer that they went a little more on the crazy awesome instead of melodrama but it's the gameplay that's important. Let's just wait for what it actually plays like.

But didn't Virgil always do that with his sword, seriously a sword belt is not that hard to buy

I'm a huge Devil May Cry fan and am glad the are rebooting the crap out of it since I hated the direction they where taking it with DMC4.

The only character that I will actually miss is Lady. The rest are pretty forgettable.

that was awful
