E3 2012 - Update - DmC: Devil May Cry
Dante is back with a new look and the trailer looks great. The teaser shows a futuristic city in a world run by the demons. They contol our food, our media and watch our every move. We open on Dante crashing a club where, after the demons realize who he is, the very building takes the form of a demon, warping and shifting as Dante is dragged into Limbo. The animations in the trailer look spectacular and the fluidty of motion sparks some curiosity about how the actual in-game combat may appear.
Well, we get an answer for that in a second gameplay trailer that shows Dante taking on a mob in Limbo. The combat shifts between weapons almost seamlessly as Dante uses a sword, his guns, a scythe and some sort of grappling attack to continuously chain enemies with rapidity, a staple of the series. The combat appears to be more fluid than ever and the animations look superb, obviously taking a few notes from another Capcom title, Street Fighter IV. I love, love, LOVE the way the streets and buildings warp and shift, revealing an evil that is all around you. Everything looks superb and I am looking forward to kicking some Hellspawn ass in January of 2013.
