January is right around the corner and DmC fans are starting to get excited, now I know most of you are still upset about the way Dante looks, He’s been called a Justin Bieber look-alike to one of the members of the Back Street Boys (can’t stand either one). I’m not going to lie when they first showed Dante’s new look I wasn’t to happy, we get accustomed to the characters look and a lot of us hate change. Capcom is trying to change the minds of those who wont come close to the new installment because of his look.
The story takes place in Limbo City, a contemporary town secretly controlled from the shadows by powerful demons, manipulating humanity through the comforts of life. Living on the fringes of the brainwashed society is Dante, a disenfranchised youth at odds with the demons who constantly hunt him, and have made his life a living hell for as long as he could remember.
Over the course of his battles through the twisted streets of Limbo, Dante is contacted by The Order, a rogue group led by his long-lost brother Vergil, hell-bent on exposing the demons to the world and releasing Limbo City from their clutches. However, as The Order’s principal reason for recruiting Dante is because he alone possesses a particular gene that can be used to combat the demons, he remains wary of Vergil and questions his intentions. While Dante fights alongside The Order, he will learn of his past and the family he never knew, while coming to grips with the incredible powers that come with being a Son of Sparda
Capcom has revealed Four new difficulty modes for Ninja Theory’s upcoming Devil May Cry reboot.
Son of Sparda – Remixed enemy layouts, tougher enemies and enemy behavior throughout.
Dante Must Die – As above, but contains the strongest enemies and insane attack waves.
Heaven or Hell – Another remixed mode, but everyone and everything, including Dante, dies after one hit. Supremely satisfying!
Hell and Hell – The same as above, but only Dante dies after one hit. For serious contenders.
A true collaboration, DmC sees the team at Ninja Theory joined by key staff from Capcom’s R&D division. Creative direction for the title will be undertaken by Ninja Theory’s Tameen Antoniades and overseen by Hedeaki Itsuno, who has worked on all previous titles in the series. DmC is being co-produced by Capcom’s Japanese and North American development operations.
