Forums - Gaming Discussion - Original Devil May Cry Creator Sticks Up For the New DmC

Kotaku

Game developer Hideki Kamiya of Platinum Games and recent Bayonetta fame will field just about any question on Twitter, whether he's well-versed on a topic or not. Something he knows a ton about? Devil May Cry games. Kamiya was the director on the original Devil May Cry back in 2001 and a very good authority on what makes a Devil May Cry game great.

Not surprisingly, fans and foes of the newest game in the Devil May Cry series, the newly-released DmC, want to know his thoughts on it.

It would be so easy for him to ignore these questions or to knock the new game. The man has no love lost for Capcom, the company that has put out all the DMC games. And he's not averse to trash-talking on Twitter. The new DmC isn't even made by a Capcom studio and instead has been crafted by the Heavenly Sword people at Ninja Theory.

But, no way is Kamiya taking the bait. He's not bashing DmC. Instead, he just said this:

And a little later:

Can this story get any happier?

Yes!

I cant wait to get my copy of the DmC game - I'm a huge fan of the series and cant wait to try out the re-boot - been hearing good things about it :).

I'm so sick and disgusted with fans of the series crying because of Dante's hair that I, a person who never played a game from the DmC series, am strongly considering going out and buying this game just to give moral support to the developers who were bold enough to stick with their direction of change and not bowing to these whiny fans.

Steam sales for the win. 60 FPS with that 7850!



I'll be purchasing it when it's cheaper. I personally don't care about the new dantes look.

Indeed. NT got balls and they deserve respect for this.

I'm sure Capcom tried to make them change things too.
