This Dante is just smoking because it looks cool or something like that.

Have to admit, that last scene seemed a LOT cooler til I realized he was smoking.

He smokes now? Westerners giving him dirty habits, terrible.

A lot of Japanese people smoke.


Honestly... I'd just want to say this did not get a good impression amongst a number of people.

I am aware, but my statement still stands. Japanese people may love their smokes, but it is Westerners who made the character smoke. I'm not pushed either way really, it's not like i'm going to catch passive cyber cancer. More just an observation.

Who's to say it wasn't Capcom that made the decision? I have no idea how much involvement they had with the development of the game. Do you? I'm not going to start pointing fingers. There's something to be said for the fact that the first two games that come to my mind when I think about smoking in videogames (Vanquish and whichever Metal Gear Solid game I played last) are Japanese.

I haven't played Heavenly Sword, so I have no idea what to make of this. The initial shock of them putting a deep voiced lesbian punk rocker as the lead character took me back a few steps, but I'll still play it if it's fun. I thought the new character they made for DMC4 was kind of dull, so I was hoping they'd go in the opposite direction and make Dante even crazier and goofier (basically DMC3 x2). Instead it seems like they're upping the angst to unforeseen levels. I just hope that it's fun to play, because it looks like I'll be skipping through the cutscenes.

I don't mind change.. it's THAT particular change. I don't like this new design, how hard is that to grasp? They could have redesigned him in a way that would still be different from DMC1-4 but looks less retarded.

But you're not going to buy it, so I'm not sure why you care.

Game could be good. I don't think I like the way it's headed though.

It's like a father missing his child that changed after years of drug abuse and alcohol :(

Did you notice in one of "Dante's" new pics he has a UK flag in his left arm?

I love me some Devil May Cry. Heck, I even had a lot fun with 4. His new design I do not like, but it really does come down to gameplay. If it's a blast to play, I'll get over it.

I dunno, im kinda torn as well. Its a reboot though, he could be a fucking monkey riding a unicycle shooting laser beams and it would be okay. It kinda seems like they are putting more emphasis on the story this time around, which we all have to admit, was one of the weakest parts to DMC. So I dunno, I like Ninja Theory's cast they employ and as long as they make the combat fast and controller throwing difficult enemies, ill love this game.

In the trailer he's in a psych ward. It'd be cool if the game had the protagonist be a schizophrenic who only thinks he's Dante. Playing as a schizo is always a huge mindfuck (see: Killer7, Eternal Darkness). As an added bonus, have him meet the REAL Dante later in the game.

Ok, now that would honestly sound great. Let us hope they are cool enough to do something like that or something cool enough to make us think little of the radical design change.

I was mentioning elsewhere yesterday that I'd been trying to subscribe to the theory that he's some mental patient who just THINKS he's Dante. I was thinking he was just in a questioning room at a police station though.

That would actually be pretty awesome. It would put a pretty cool twist. It would also keep yourself asking "who am I playing as?".

wouldn't it be obvious because of character design and especially hair color?
