    If this is what is "cool now" I think I like what was cool before better. Kudos to revamping the series but man that main character looks really weak and ill IMO.There is no style to this character and I miss that.

    Tameen, you're fired. You made Dante look like you. He doesn't look cool, he looks gay.

    Okay...so Dante has the same hair as the creative director...I know artists make things in their own image a lot but god, could you at least make it less obvious.

    On a side note, I don't like the hair. Like everything else about the new model, just not the hair.

    Got to admit I'm usually the one that dislikes gamers afraid of change. But in this case I'll make an exception.

    It would be one thing if they changed Danate's look and still kept it cool, but he looks like a total idiot now. Seriously, what were they thinking with his hair? I don't mind the black at all, but it looks like he paid a lawn mower to cut his hair.

    And what is the deal with him smoking cigarettes? If they wanted him to look emo they couldn't have hit the nail on the head any harder. On top of that, they wanted to -update- his look; by smoking cigarettes!? I'm sorry but smoking was only cool in the 70's and 80's. Not the late 90's and 2000's when we discovered they destroy your lungs. If nothing else, I hope they take at least that portion out of the final cut. Smoking just isn't culturally acceptable anymore, especially since we all know health-related consequences.

    I still think the game will probably be a good game. But considering DMC4 and this new reincarnation I'll definitely be waiting for the review on this one. Aspects of his new appearance are certainly not cool or "updated".

    Don't fix what ain't broke. Dante was looking all kinds of awsome. Now he looks like a heroine addicted male prostitute.

    and all you people that are saying "who cares about what they look like the only thing that matters is the game play" you obviously don't like the game you are playing because if you did you'd like the character you played for 200 hours and you wouldn't want to see him as an anorexic

    and p(full name) hilton is profanity wow

    Ok "stuff thats cool back then isn't cool anymore" yeah right... so Ok are you saying that now we want to see an emo kid that is to busy crying about how daddy never loved, him is cool now. just because p.hilton looks like this kid doesn't mean he's relevant to "nowadays"

    I dunno but does a series thats barley 10 yrs old justify a reboot?This looks to me to be quick cash grab instead of an idea that can work.Plus the stupid emo influence garbage and chain smoking pictorial is more insulting if their trying so desperately to aim this at a western audience.I don't care what some hypester morons would say to old Dante if walked in a bar in 2010.Do people really care if their video game character are not following the latest fasion gimicks?That still does'nt justify a much too soon reboot.All they need to do was improve on the existing game engine and keep Dante a wisecracking white haired one liner badass with a sword.

    So they want to portray a younger and less experienced version of Dante? Hmm, didn't DMC 3 already do that? You know, only two games ago?

    It's not the change in developers that bugs me. It's not the redesign of Dante that bugs me all that much. It's the fact that DMC didn't need to be rebooted. DMC 3 already acted as a rebirth of the series and that was fine. DMC 4 was fine too because it mixed things up with a new character who had his own unique abilities. I say that Capcom should keep this reboot series seperate from the main series and continue the main series simultaneously, like they did with Megaman and Megaman X. This way I can get the DMC I (and other hardcore fans) want and choose to ignore this emo/hipster bastardization.

    Point of note Abbie you look great, Dante still look like Tameen Antonidas ( the guy on the right) and i still don't think he knows what cool is. And until i see gameplay i don't believe a word they say.

    Characters dont just change, does anyone remember the uproar that was caused when the Main character of Infamous was changed for the sequel until they finally were forced to change him back?

    Belive me, it makes a difference.

    Characters change...get over it.

    To me Dante now kinda looks like that Tameem Antoniades guy.


    I don't know what going on with her hair in this interview but normally I would agree.

    Abbie! is that you! You look interesting, like an 80s punk girl. Nice though.

    I thought nobody invited the cool kids to parties anymore. Their annoying, and you end up picking up after them as if you're their personal maid.

    lmao... I believe the two devs in this preview video based Dante off themselves. No wonder Dante looks gay! *looks at the flamboyant devs* xD

    Well gotta hand it to these guys, instead of changing what he looks like to appease fans (Infamous)... They are keeping him they way he looks, bravo for standing your ground unlike (infamous)
