Devil May Cry has been reborn as DmC in a soup-to-nuts re-imagining of the classic PS2 and PS3 action series. The results are undeniably striking, and are bound to trigger debate and discussion among series diehards for months to come. Judge for yourself - take a look at the debut video for DmC below.
In an international twist, British-based Heavenly Sword developer http://www.ninjatheory.com/ is co-developing DmC with Capcom's Japanese and US studios.
The game is still shrouded in mystery, with few details relating to the setting (a strange urban environment with http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Locations_of_Half-Life#City_17 overtones a la Half Life 2), the combat mechanics (Dante's sword appears to change shape at whim), the demonic enemies (marionette-like creatures not unlike those from the first game), or a release date.
That said, DmC brought a rousing round of applause from the crowd when it was unveiled at Capcom's Tokyo Game Show event alongside Capcom's other major announcement: http://www.capcom-unity.com/snow_infernus/blog/2010/09/15/tgs_2010:_asuras_wrath_announcement. What do you think?
