DMC: Dante Haters Have Nothing To Fear – Ninja Theory
DMC: Devil May Cry developer Ninja Theory as renewed its claim that fans have nothing to worry about when it comes to the changes it is making.
Speaking at E3, Ninja Theory’s creative director Tameem Antoniades, detailing how it was important to see the game and its story as a whole.
“I think what was important for me was that we should get the game right,” said Tameem, “nail the gameplay and have a world that feels consistent and real when you’re playing it.
“So when we announced it,” he continued, “we didn’t really show any gameplay, we didn’t show the world and we didn’t show the reason why he was different.”
Now that development has been underway for a while, Tameem mentions how playtesters aren’t noticing any problems with Dante.
“We’ve actually had people have hands-on and start playing through from the beginning and getting into the story,” he said, “they haven’t really had that reaction or, if they have, it’s kind of been alleviated.
So will fans fears be allayed the more of this new Dante they see?
“So I’m hoping the more we show, the more it’ll feel like ‘actually, this is a worthy – but different – kind of entry into the DMC world’.
“And you don’t need to know anything about DMC to get into it,” he added, before confirming there will be “plenty there to draw you back in” if you’re an existing series fan.
