Capcom Unity shot a video interview with the producers of DmC Devil May Cry behind closed doors at E3, last week. The 19 minute discussion talks up the new trailer, which producer Alex Jones says was meant to highlight the gameplay that the Devil May Cry fan base has come to know and love.

The goal of DmC Devil May Cry was to create something that is Devil May Cry, but to also create something abolutely updated and new at the same time. It is a retelling of Dante’s story from the start, according to the producers, and shouldn’t use other Devil May Cry games as a template.

In the new trailer, there’s a small segment where the world goes black and white and Dante’s hair turns white. Jones wouldn’t reveal specifics about the ability, but said that it is a key power for Dante.

Though in development at Enslaved and Heavenly Sword studio Ninja Theory, DmC Devil May Cry has the same director as past entries in the franchise: Hideaki Itsuno.

Check out the interview in full below.

    I actually really liked the E3 trailer. Loved how the environments changed, and the art style. Not completely sold on the character design but at least he seems to look a lot better than when they first revealed him.

    everything but the character design is looking good.

  • Revorse

    It seems silly for them to say not to compare a Devil May Cry to another Devil May Cry.

    I really don’t see why DMC needed a reboot, it’s not like every single game on the market has to reinvent the wheel. Some games don’t need to change.
    I’m not sure why, but all the developers now feel the need to change everything that made a game what it was for whatever reason (probably money).
    And don’t get me started on the whole Japanese games being westernized crap.

    They had a hard time with the combos… THOSE COMBOS ?! Man, these people are absolutely useless.

    Not to be the one who points out a mistake but Hideki Kamiya invented the franchise and directed DMC 1 and 3. Inafune directed 2. Hideaki Itsuno only directed DMC 4. just thought id let you know.

    • Sal Romano

      Hideaki Itsuno directed 2-4, actually. There’s no mistake there.

    Bullshit.

    I watched this when it was live. I’m not going to rant here (I did that on the DmC Trailer post on this very site) but this just goes to show you that they have no intent on bringing the Dante we all know and love, back.

    Sad Day :(
