Capcom’s revealed the first media and details of DmC Devil May Cry this afternoon after announcing it earlier at their Tokyo Game Show press conference. The game, in development at Enslaved studio Ninja Theory, is a reboot of the critically-acclaimed franchise.
Players will enter world where nothing is ever as it seems and the distinction between good and evil is often hard to determine. A new, younger Dante takes the place of protagonist, with players performing the same mix sword and gunplay that the franchise is well known for. Additional weapons, new powers, and revitalized gameplay will encounter the player throughout the game’s rich environment, as well.
Ninja Theory’s Tameem Antoniades and Capcom’s Hedeaki Itsuno are heading the project, making it a true collaboration between east and west. Itsuno has worked on all previous iterations of Devil May Cry in the past, so fans should rest assured it’s being overseen by someone who knows the franchise.
It’s in development for PS3 and Xbox 360. Check out the screenshots at the gallery. The debut trailer can be found below.
