Devil May Cry 5 trailer – What have they done to Dante?
The teaser trailer for Devil May Cry 5 was launched at the Tokyo Games Show last month and well…. it’s not what you’d expect. At all.
Firstly the visuals are hugely different from the style we’ve seen before. This is a more subdued colour palette, and graphically nowhere near as glossy or crisp as the previous games. It suggests a clear move away from what has gone before, which is accented by that young chap who smokes and has dark hair. His name is … Dante…sorry WHAT?
Now I’m not going to get all all fanboy about this, I think it’s time the franchise had a reboot, and if you’re going to shake things up, REALLY shake them up. Whether or not this new dark tone will also affect the gameplay is yet to be seen. Personally, I rather like it…
The game is being developed by Ninja Theory of Heavenly Sword fame.
So, thoughts? Bring in the new or stick with the old?
Kudos to Live For Films for bringing this to my attention.
