Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez
has made available a video today on the re-imaging of Dante in the new Devil May Cry for PS3.
To quote: "I remember calling it Developers May Cry, it looked that good." God of War III's game director Stig Asmussen
confesses in the upcoming God of War Directors Live event, when asked about his art direction days on the original God of War.
Devil May Cry; its headliner, Dante; and the entire DMC mythology have sprung installments on multiple consoles, comic books and an anime series. Dante is an iconic figure in the video game world, so imagine the reaction when Lead Producer Alex Jones
and Chief Creative Director Tameem Antoniades
were tapped to change everything we know about Devil May Cry and start from scratch. The result? DmC.
Clearly, http://www.ninjatheory.com/ and http://www.capcom-unity.com/ were anticipating a strong reaction and fan skepticism, but after my conversation with the new DmC team, I grew more confident that Dante and the cast of DmC are in good hands.
It's daring, crazy and extremely challenging to change an 11-year-old franchise. But, if Christopher Nolan can do it with Batman Begins, maybe Ninja Theory can do the same for Devil May Cry.
I'm sure you'll agree when I say that I feverishly await more details behind the new DmC. Expect both Jones and Antoniades to visit the PlayStation.Blog in the future. I like the new hair. There, I said it.
