DmC Devil May Cry developer issues Twitter tease.

Heavenly Sword, Enslaved, and DmC Devil May Cry developer Ninja Theory is teasing “something new” for tomorrow.

“Tomorrow,” said the UK developer on Twitter. “Something new to show.”

Stay tuned.

Update, Next Day: The new game is a free-to-play brawler called Fightback for iOS and Android. Read more about it at PocketGamer.

    Yay! I guess I am a minority in this, but I loved every game they have made so far! Can’t wait.

    • disqus_rIjnBIKvqC

      only game I enjoyed really good was HS. DmC to some extent when I realized its basically no depth at all.

  • Namekaze_Minato

    new DMC!….. with non-emo looks this time around please.

    • Locksus

      And with actual skill required, please.

      • SuperLuigi

        Did you try it on dante must die? Or hell and hell where enemies kill you in one hit, but they don’t die in one hit?

        • Locksus

          I mean with, for example, the combo system. Getting SSS ranks was very, very easy.

          • SuperLuigi

            I do agree on the combo system. The blades(forgot the name) where you make a tornado gave you instant SSS if you didn’t get hit.

          • Namekaze_Minato

            Even still the gameplay was amazing; gotta give credit where its due; but the campaign story sucked and so did the story of Vergil’s Downfall. Killing off Mundus on the first game leaves little room for new enemies; and I hate how they villianised Vergil (in DLC story); in DMC3 he was portrayed as a power hungry dark hero who didn’t give a damn about humanity; but never a heartless duche.

  • Prodigy-X

    New Ip or Heavenly Sword 2

    • CosmicNova

      HS2 is out of the question. Sony owns that IP, and the last time I check these two companies didn’t part ways under good circumstances.

      • Prodigy-X

        And how do you know they could have just made up or Sony gave them money to do it.

  • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

    Probably the HS movie.

    • SuperLuigi

      Maybe a HS tv show to combat the halo tv show haha…ya

  • Derpazu

    If this is actually DmC2, Capcom should just go bankrupt.

    • Claude

      They just may when DmC2 bombs too!

  • Potionzmaster

    I’m pretty excited!

  • Cry_Zero

    PLEASE let it be DMC2 for PS4. Or heavenly Sword. I hope its not a new IP

    • disqus_rIjnBIKvqC

      first off nab,DMC2 would be a remake,and remaster hd has already been realeased of DMC better not talk about a sequel to the shitty DmC,you really have no clue what a good H&s game is when you hope for DmC2.
      I doubt its HS2,since it states showing something new,other wise it would have said like sequel on a Lp or something.

      and when you write dmc2,you shouldnt be that lazy to not or make capital letters,its either DMC series or the shitt DmC.

      • Cry_Zero

        thats your opinion……I think DMC was AWESOME wether you likde dantes look or not. And im tired of all these suckers who are hating on dmc….It was obviously better than dmc2 and 4. The only dmc which may be as good as dmc was dmc3.

        • Bobby Jennings

          Word. DmC was really good. I enjoyed it. Though the bosses were too easy, the level design and the combat was amazing.

  • kenshee

    This is very good news indeed!

    I have been very impressed by their story-telling and facial animations along with inventive good looking environment art. (no real complaints on gameplay either, always solid)

    If you add those two elements together I’ll pretty much always bite ^^

    I’d be happy with both a new IP or a sequel to any of the 3 games mentioned to be totally honest, so yeah. Nothing but hyped for this :)

    • disqus_rIjnBIKvqC

      Moderator – I’ve edited this post some. Please remember. Respect other members of the community. If you have a differing opinion, discuss it kindly.

      what? I could care less how good facial animations are.its the gameplay thats important,I rather play a pure hack n slash game that doesnt concenentrate on facial stuff that gives crap gameplay. im talking about DmC.Dmc was fun in the start when i learned all the combos an chaining it together,but it became old very fast.And enslaved got even crappier gameplay,you got max 10combos.
      Ninja theory better pull something out of their arses tomorrow then.

      • kenshee

        I did also note the gameplay was solid, didn’t I? I thought DmC was fun enough, for me anyways. (Note, I played dmc 3 and 4, never will I say DmC did anything combat related better than those games. But I just play through these type of games once on normal difficulty. So as a filthy casual I don’t get around to the part that annoys the hardcore people, heh.)

        I never implied (or my writing did and I failed somewhere ‘^^) that gameplay isn’t most important, I just chose to highlight what they did well in my experience with their games. I said I’d bite if those elements were there, that’s mainly because I can’t judge gameplay until I’ve already bitten and started the game.

        In my experience, a well told story can keep me interested at points where the gameplay isn’t at its best. And the opposite is also true.
        I pointed out the facial animations because I feel they’ve come to a point where they’re really helping the story telling in the nuances of conversations, something which current hardware enables, so it’s one way a game’s experience can grow. Do I need my games to have realistic faces? Most of my gaming time is spent on my 3ds lately, so guess for yourself, haha. But I do very much appreciate that type of thing when it works well.

        So all things considered, I see games differently than you do, why is that a bad thing? :/

        As a side-note, I think we’re just very different people.
        I like complementing a game’s strong points if I didn’t find anything horribly wrong with the rest of it, because that’s what I remember from a game.

        I could also list all my problems with every game I play.
        But why point out things everyone already knows?
        Why not summarize a game’s good points so someone that happens to read your comment and likes those aspects might look into it a bit more?

        Eh, I guess I think (and ramble) too much about silly things.
        Sorry for the wall o’ text there, lol.

      • kenshee

        Welp anders, seems you were right on where the game they ended up making came from :p

  • Gilgamesh2025

    Hmm … I’m excited!

  • DarthBrian

    A DmC thumbnail was used for article instead of Heavenly Sword. /am cry

  • donte

    This Unannounced Gme seems to drag on 4ever, churches

  • John Johnson

    Ninja Theory’s new… and a DmC picture? OH GOD NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

  • bloodiOS

    Please be a new IP to begin a fresh start.
    Please ditch the current consoles and focus on the upcoming ones.
    Please concentrate on exploiting the new systems’ powerful specs.
    Please don’t produce ****port anymore.

    • Mar Mar

      Enslaved 2!

      • bloodiOS

        Only if it’s involved an entirely different cast of characters. Direct sequels simply have too many limitations.

  • Nice Boat

    It could probably be a sequel to Enslaved or a new IP. I doubt a DmC2 is possible considering how they needed assistance from Capcom to develop the first one and it was far from being a success.

    • Elvick

      Enslaved sold so terribly I can’t image that.

      I’d believe Heavenly Sword 2, before I’d believe Enslaved 2.

  • Karl Josef

    I wish for the sequel of Devil May Cry 3 where vergil will return on the surface.

  • Bobby Jennings

    Why do I feel like I was trolled.

  • Pace

    Its..its…a mobile game? On Ninja Theory’s twitter the tease for 500 retweets the announcement got almost 30. Sad.

  • Amaterasu

    I feel like I was trolled. Got my hopes up for nothing.

  • Adol Christin

    At least its free :P

  • Paul Rodriguez

    Glad it’s not another franchise ruining game. Also, I hate his hair (kidding about the hair crack by the way).

    • Nice Boat

      I’m still afraid of MmX: Mega Man X.

  • Elvick

    lol, how the mighty have fallen. (and I view HS/Enslaved as ‘mighty’, don’t care to play DmC)

  • GhostNomad

    I wonder if the gameplay’s gonna be as boring as their take on DMC’s HnS. Then again, games on my phone never hold my attention for more than 30 minutes to an hour so I suppose it’s fair to say that chances are it’ll be boring one way or another.
