The Dante in Ninja Theory’s DmC Devil May Cry is not the same Dante from Capcom’s Devil May Cry. Ninja Theory’s game, explains the latest Dengeki PlayStation, is set in a parallel world.
Ninja Theory suggested the game take place in an alternate setting, according to the magazine. That way white-haired Dante could still exist in his own world (and in Marvel vs. Capcom 3).
DmC Devil May Cry is due for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
