The newest DMC trailer entitled “Don’t mess with a God” shows off Dante gallivanting around the DMC world whooping demon ass and but also seeing the world through an all too familiar lens. I don’t know about you, but this game definitely has some They Live flavor to it. The opening quote and the first few images are very reminiscent of the 1988 Roddy Piper classic and if you are not getting the humor or reference, IMDB the movie immediately for a trailer. If you are brave and have some time to kill I believe it is on Netflix instant streaming as well for your viewing pleasure. That was a fun tangent, but back to business now.
A lot of people are worried about this new DMC title even including one of our own, Justin (his handle on here is Shalashaska86 or something to that degree), but this title seems to be your standard DMC affair. Ninja Theory has a pretty good track record of making quality games (Enslaved, Heavenly Sword). They haven’t pumped out any crap yet and I don’t think they are going to start with this. I didn’t see anything in this trailer that made me worried about it being true to the DMC lineage. The combat looks solid and some of the platforming elements look really well done. From what I have seen thus far in this trailer and others is that this game has the potential to be a big contender in the action game genre.
Reboots need more TLC than most other games because you have to make sure you protect the game’s already established reputation (hopefully it’s a good one, worthy of protection) while also creating a new identity for the franchise. Ninja Theory’s DMC might look and play the same as Capcom’s original franchise, but I am pretty confident that they will introduce and implement new components that will keeps long-time fans of the franchise happy as well as bring in a whole new crowd. So I am excited to see what other developments this game makes in the coming months and if you stay tuned we will be sure to update you as well.
