It’s been quite a while since we last heard from Capcom and Ninja Theory about their Devil May Cry relaunch, DmC. But that silence has ended today, thanks in part to Gamescom in Germany kicking off. Ninja Theory has compiled a new trailer that shows off a lot of brutal combos and Dante doing what he does best: kicking the holy hell out of demons.
A lot of people have been up in arms about the Devil May Cry franchise getting a reboot, especially the fact that Dante now sports a look that’s more emo than badass. But from what I gather from the below trailer, this looks like the same addictive Devil May Cry gameplay we've come to love. Nothing seems different, outside Dante’s look, which will, in theory, serve a story purpose, as the game is setting out to tell the early adventures of our lead protagonist.
In my quasi-professional opinion, rabid Dante fans need to relax. Give the game a chance before you condemn it. And that first step begins by watching the below trailer without letting a white hot, blinding rage overcome you.
DmC is scheduled to launch in 2012 on PS3 and Xbox 360.
