Ninja Theory: Devil May Cry Wasn't Cool Any More

For those who missed the news, the new Devil May Cry (dubbed DmC) is being developed by Ninja Theory, and they've been keen to stamp their own mark on the franchise.

When the new look Dante was revealed, some were left disappointed - he doesn't really look much like the old Dante, featured in Devil May Cry 1-4.

However, Ninja Theory justified this by saying Dante is all about cool. Speaking to 1Up, creative design lead Tameem Antoniades said "But, you know, what was cool 12 years ago "“ I think that was when the first game came out "“ isn't cool any more.

"If Dante, dressed as he was, walked into any bar outside of Tokyo, he'd get laughed out," he added.

So, if you were thinking about cosplaying old Dante in Tokyo, you should probably think again.
