    ok i read a article about the new weapon/tentacle a while back it said something about rebellion not having a solid form or something and if u look at the swords between the games they change except in dmc3 and 4 they r the same. this new weapon is supposed to be rebellion before it became the sword. im not too keen on the black hair but im sure they'll explain it and it wont stay. there was a vid that showed a devil trigger looking action in the gameplay trailer. his hair turned white. so maybe his hair becomes more white as his demonic power become stronger. im not gonna hate this game or the fact he black hair or he smokes. hell i smoke imma continue supporting capcom cuz dmc series is in my oppinion the best series out there idc wat ppl say

    I really hope this game does not Bomb, I am a huge fan of the Devil May Cry series and I have a feeling that if too many people dislike this one It may vanish into nothingness. Capcom hasn't really let me down yet though so I won't give up on the guys! Ninja Theory keep it going guys and release some more info to keep us excited on!

    What would have made people screaming in the trailer is if suddenly it shows a leg and near the camera and a katana is being held in someones hand and dante looks at him then the screen goes black for the DmC logo XD would have been awesome but hey, gotta keep wishing right? lol

    I don t think Capcom would just abuse one of their characters like that. I think there probably redoing the whole series. Starting off as Dante being in his mid teen s maybe. Gives us more in depth of who he is, how he got the white hair. I think Capcom is taking all of us for a crazy spontaneous ride. Capcom is not stupid enough to make their fans hate them. I m sure they knew what was expected when they decided to make a reboot and choose that appearance for Dante.

    Okay honestly now. I personally think that DMC needed a reboot.
    Think about it. DMC in one of Capcom s highest earning franchises and honestly it has been battened to death. I m not saying that I didn t like the old Dante, Devil May Cry was the first game I ever got on my ps2, but if you think about it has been done to death. The original was an amazing game but sadly it didn t really NEED a sequel it was a great stand-alone game. I did play the 2nd one and it was okay I enjoyed it for the most part but it didn t leave the game with the option for a sequel, Dante was in hell he was kinda trapped so let s not move forward, let s have a prequel. I hated DMC3 .it was pointless and I just gave up, and it takes A LOT for me to just quit a game even if it is bad. So when 4 came out I regrettably rented it once again I hated it. The story had basically been destroyed all you had to do was fight crap it had no substance and it hurt my girly-feelings. I do have to give it the game that it was graphically stunning and it had one of my favorite voice actors but that s basically it, the game was easy and I began to hate myself for being ticked in to trying it just because it have Devil May Cry on the cover. I think that a reboot was necessary for franchise to keep making money. I m not saying that I m gonna run out and buy it when it s releases hell I m not so sure that I ll even play it at all. You just have to accept that things get a reboot ALL THE TIME, and people WILL complain it s impossible to please everyone and it s a gamer s/fan s nature to hate change and we sometimes forget that change is a good thing. We have to look at this with fresh eyes instead of focusing on the past and imagining that our beloved game characters are just being phased out because they re not, well not exactly think of this game as a homage not just a reboot. And Ninja Theory is a good company they do have athing going for them where that make awesome games. We just have to trust that everything will turn out for the best.
    Also you guys probably didn t even read this, it s so long hell I can say whatever I want and no one will notice ..boobies hehee

    I don't mind the black hair, they just should have made it longer like in devil may cry 3; but they at least should've kept rebellion (dante's sword - for those who don't know) in the game...hopefully dante will get his sword and original hair color back...this is just wishful thinking...maybe this dante is just undercover or maybe he's being accused of something terrible which causes him to change his appearance...but like i said "this is just wishful thinking"!

    no porblem with the fact of reboot so but his hair was white when he was a kid

    First of off, those guys are full of it!! They rather have bad feedback then no feedback?! This argument only works for general products. We are in the game industry and we are the fans!!!! if we tell you that we dont like the new appearance of the new Dante you should take us seriously!!! Look, at the very least, you shoud include the old Dante in the game as an unlockable costume, a reward for finishing the game. That is the very least you can do for the fans.

    Why does Emo Dante look like their Creative Director?

    i am a big fan of the Devil May Cry series and i understand the premise behind it to tell about Dante childhood but i dont see why they would overhaul a iconic character design. It may juust be me i but from what ive seen i think the old Dante looked much cooler that this one, to me he just looks like some generic emo kid.

    i think they just have to get rid of that prototype looking sword because with that it will just be like dmc4 where you just unlock new powers for the mystical abilitys so what they need to do is make it so he has a solid weapon like the rebellion and he unlocks new weapons along the way like the first 3 dmc
