30w ago - Ninja Theory Communications Manager Dominic Matthews has detailed DmC: Devil May Cry demo PlayStation 3 DLC complete with a video trailer below!
To quote: Hello, Dominic Matthews here from Ninja Theory bringing you an update on DmC: Devil May Cry.
First off, I want to tell you about some DmC add-on content that we just announced. Called Vergil's Downfall, it features six brand new missions, in new environments where you play as Dante's twin brother Vergil.
Vergil has his own unique combat system (if you know Vergil from the previous games you'll recognize some of his signature moves) and the story, which is intertwined with the events of the main game, takes place in Vergil's very own personal hell. Lovely!
You'll also get to take on new enemies and upgrade Vergil's combat as you play. Once you've completed all the new missions you'll have four new difficulty modes to unlock including Son of Sparda and Vergil Must Die, both of which feature unique enemy waves and enemy behaviours that are different from those in the three default difficulty settings.
The reason that we're telling you about this add-on content before the main game is even out is not because it's finished (because it's not,...
95w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez has shared some video footage from this year's Gamescom today showcasing Dante's vertical slice in Devil May Cry on the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: Last year, Capcom and Ninja Theory revealed their re-imagining of Devil May Cry (now known as "DmC" at the 2010 Tokyo Game Show.
The response to Dante's makeover and new look to the universe was split between adoration and outright confusion, with fans questioning the new look and fighting style of protagonist Dante.
Heading into Gamescom, I received word that Creative Director Tameem Antoniades wanted to discuss DmC's progress and indulge me in Dante's new found love for aerial combat. After being reunited with Tameem and Dante, I'm left crying for more.
143w 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...
167w ago - Today Associate Producer William Weissbaum has shared an exclusive God of War III music video interview dubbed 'Even Gods Cry' on the PlayStation Blog.
To quote: With the recent release of the God of War III Ultimate Edition, many of you, when not busy swinging those double deadly Blades of Chaos, have been rocking nonstop to the sounds of the God of War: Blood & Metal album.
One of the tracks in particular has been gaining rapidly in popularity, "Even Gods Cry" by The Turtlenecks. With its haunting melody and thoughtful lyrics, it's no wonder that it has many fans tapping their feet and scratching their heads.
After much pleading and begging Matthew Cappiello and Noah Belson, the illusive Turtlenecks themselves, agreed to allow the PS.Blog to have the world exclusive premiere of the "Even Gods Cry" music video.
Better yet they were kind enough to sit down with me and answer a few questions providing some true insight to the men behind the music.
What Inspired you to write "Even Gods Cry"?
