Ninja Theory is adding their own edge to the Devil May Cry series with DmC Devil May Cry. This game will explore Dante's early years as he comes to terms with being the child of an angel and a demon. One of the most significant features in DmC Devil May Cry is Dante's fighting style. It was important to Ninja Theory to combine Dante's Angel and Demon powers, which results in ground and aerial attacks.
A new fighting style is meaningless without rad weapons to back it up. Dante will of course have his sword and guns but he'll also have a few new weapons. You'll now wield Osiris, an angel weapon scythe, and the Arbiter, a demonic axe.
We had the oppurtunity to get our hands on DmC for ourselves to see what the fuss was about. Here's a snippet from our preview:
"Dante has two separate weapons, symbolizing his angel and devil sides, that he can summon for strong and area attacks. One is Osiris, an “angel weapon” scythe that charges up over time and is good for crowd control. The other is the Arbiter, an enormous demonic axe that is good for dealing out powerful damage. Combine those with the ability to grapple enemies in the air and pull yourself towards them, as well as launching your opponents into the air, and there’s a whole new combat game going on."
