Dante's Always looked femine... imo, now he just has black hair and a short haircut. which I guess = twilight...
keep in mind, theonly devil may cry I loved was the first one. Not the biggest fan of the series.
now to be off topic... I hate the character designs of Ninja Gaiden more, but I like those games much more than the DMC series. Or GoW for that matter. Style doesn't matter that much in these type of games for me :P
This is exactly what i wanted to touch on with this thread. DMC1 was the most successful in the series and imo the most fun. i think that the sales figures suggest that this is the case.
the problem i think was that the system is too complex - hear me out. do western gamers like having to remember many different combinations on the fly and then having to mix up many different combinations to get a high score, while at the same time not getting hit at all, and not using any healing items. personally i felt DMC4 required far too much patience to enjoy.
imo this is part of why DMC is a niche series, western gamers find it too time consuming and difficult to enjoy the gameplay, compared to something like Prince of Persia, God of War or even now Batman Arkham Asylum or Assassin's Creed, which are a lot more 'accessible' to the general gamer.
so this is why i think NT could do great things for the series, they will create something innovative that captures the essense of previous games action, but allows itself to be 'accessible' to western gamers. this is why i'm looking foward to see what they come up with.
