When Capcom first announced that it was rebooting the Devil May Cry franchise with a new interpretation of Dante, I was annoyed, to say the least. Especially because the new Dante looks like an emo douchebag that I’d really enjoy punching in the face. However, Capcom has gone a long way to assuage my fears about this game with the first gameplay video, which it released for Gamescom.
Video and more after the jump.
The video shows the new douchebag Dante slicing, dicing and shooting — just like the old Dante that I love. Apparently, in the new game (which is titled “DMC”), Dante is half angel/half devil — a departure from the half human/half demon Dante of the previous games.
Either way, it looks like he can at least still kick ass. What do you think? Do you like the new Dante, or do you prefer the old one? Sound off in the comments!
