139w ago - 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, Ninja Theory and Capcom 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,...
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 Ninja Theory 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 City...
210w ago - Another rumor to spark up your interest for the already much-ado'd E3: Capcom is presenting Devil May Cry 5 at the said event.
Remember that full E3 line-up plus two mystery games released a couple of weeks ago? Well, rumor has it that the other mystery title is DMC5.
According to Curious Gamer, this iteration of the DMC franchise will not only head to the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3, but will also be showing up on the Nintendo Wii.
Also, their source says that attendees of E3 may look forward to a 1:32-minute long teaser trailer - quite short for eager fans, but it ought to be informative nonetheless as the release date will be shown in it too.
Again, this stands as rumor for now, though. We expect to hear something official from Capcom now that the buzz is out.
The first revealed mystery title turned out to be Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.
247w ago - The September issue of EGM brought our editors face-to-face with some of Japan's most celebrated game developers, including PlatinumGames' Hideki Kamiya. Previously responsible for Devil May Cry, Viewtiful Joe, and Okami, the former Capcom designer talked at length about his upcoming action game Bayonetta -- as well as his feelings about his competition. You can check out the full, extended interview in all its sexy glory right here.
You might recall our other big interview with former Team Ninja head Tomonobu Itagaki, where the Ninja Gaiden creator unceremoniously rocked a Ninpo on Okami. In case you were wondering, here's why:
"I've never played Ninja Gaiden, and to be honest, I'm not that interested.
"The quality that gets you interested in something is that you feel something for them. Like on TV, or a movie, or a song, or whatever. You just feel something, and you get pulled into it, and then that's how you pick something up. But Ninja Gaiden just didn't have that power, so that's why I wasn't interested in it.
Kamiya also explained his opinion that the industry has failed to exceed the groundwork he laid with original Devil May Cry, complaining, "I don't know why the baton was dropped, but it is very true that I don't feel...
255w ago - A poster on Capcom Unity's Forums has received an answer to the question of whether Devil May Cry 4 and Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix will be getting the trophy treatment and it is no. Capcom feels that DMC4 already has "its own little trophylike system" and the Puzzle Fighter team has moved on to other projects.
There is a tiny bit of good news though, Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix may have trophies implemented, but it will depend on "what schedules look like and what Sony's requirements are."
The only real good news is future games from Capcom will all have trophies, as it has "been worked into CEI's developer contracts as a required deliverable." Have other publishers signed such a contract?
This is rather disappointing, but after a string of such reports, we are not surprised. We are just really hoping SSF2T HD Remix will have support.
