Okay guys, I was reading up on Kotaku just now when I saw a topic that said there was a new Devil May Cry game. It felt like Christmas morning, I was so excited! Then I clicked on the link.
And within, I find, much to my terror, confusion, rage, and devastation that this is supposed to be some sort of reboot of the series being worked on by Heavenly Sword developer Ninja Theory and that Dante is now some psychotic douche. The debut trailer is taking itself WAY too seriously to be Devil May Cry, one of my most beloved game series.
I know that Capcom is trying to learn from the West to make their games more gritty, and thus, more successful in the West, but it looks like putting in Ninja Theory's hands was the WRONG F**KING PLAN. I am beside myself with anger right now, it's like if they rebooted Final Fantasy to have the burly, gruff character style as Gears of War. YOU DON'T DO THIS!!! And I thought I was upset when they changed up Cole in inFAMOUS, and he only had one game behind him.
I just need to vent this and share this with others that will share my outrage.
