DMC: Devil May Cry trailer out; Capcom promises more hack and slash!

 

If you are one of the gamers who love a good sword battle and all the paraphernalia that comes along, then Capcom has got the perfect package for you with its latest offering, ‘DMC: Devil May Cry’….

Dante is back again and in a more vengeful form. The lead character of the ‘Devil May Cry’ series comes back again in the latest outing by Capcom titled ‘DMC: Devil May Cry’. With a gap spanning over five years, the game’s last edition ‘Devil May Cry 4’ was released in 2008.

The trailer shows a lot of different and new features with the lead Dante sporting a new teenage look, which is understandable considering the game’s wide appeal among the younger generation. Dante’s sword Rebellion has been shortened to suit his more youthful look but the game retains its hack and slashes which is its USP. Swords are used alongside guns and with the new weapon which can hook on to the enemy and be drag it to pieces, the game play has got gorier. The game released by Capcom is being developed by Ninja Theory for the fifth installment and involves a collaboration between the two which ensures that one would have more visual effects with a style that has been perfected with the Resident Evil series. One cannot forget that Capcom has just released Resident Evil 6 and is putting upfront one of its lead bankable games which is prepping up for launch on January 15, 2013. The game offers its first glimpse to its fans, coming in after a good two years of its announcement. If you are a fan of the series, you would be well accepting of the fact that the game’s essence has been captured in the trailer through the visual effects which move on effortlessly without referring to the story. The game has evolved over the years and Capcom has ensured the gamer of some new innovations and modifications with each game. The new edition also brings in a round of expectations which are expected to be announced in the coming days. The latest edition would be available in Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC versions as well. One can avail pre-order benefits including weapons pack and character perks.

Mercy was not a quality associated with Dante and the trailer aptly reflects the hero’s killing streak and explosive abilities which truly render the game with its original symphony. The latest edition looks at Dante in a parallel universe, well apart from the series originals which showed a sequence or progression of the single story. The overall intent of the game remains the same with Dante avenging the death of his mother by slaying various demons that are pitted against him.

The hit series has been a record-breaking one recording sales of over 10 million with each of the editions registering a Platinum title. And with the looks of the new trailer, one can surely sum up that the game will achieve its fifth hit as well. The ‘Devil May Cry’ but the gamer may smile! Only time will tell!
