New DMC is actualy a prequel and not a Remake

52 replies 3503 views Edited Feb 14, 2013

This one kind of slipped by us while we were all arugueing about them putting new Dante in the game but technically sense its a prequel New Dante should be called young Dante....Oh yea just incase you guys need proof its a prequel....

A new post about the Ninja Theory-developed DmC on the PlayStation blog tells us two important things:



1. The game does indeed take place within the current Devil May Cry timeline and it is most certainly a prequel to the originals.

The reaction to Dante's new look for the Devil May Cry reboot had Capcom asking, "Why so serious?" The publisher's VP of Strategic Planning and Biz Dev. Christian Svensson told IGN that the company knew Dante's new look would bring a "knee-jerk reaction from fans." He said, "To be fair, I think some of the strategy here was to create that discussion and dialogue, and I think it drastically raises the visibility of the title versus if we had just done another Dante."

He explained the original concepts that came back for the new Dante were too close to the flamboyant source material. Capcom's Keiji Inafune and Hideaki Itsuno weren't having any of that and told the team to, according to Svensson, be "much more creative." Svensson explains that,"This is meant to be an origin story, so this is Dante before you knew who Dante was." Wait, you mean he was more than that guy with the white hair, wearing a red leather trench coat? Surprising, 'cause that's all we can seem to remember about him.

Just to throw my opinion in here... I've never played any of the games from the devil may cry series. And I didn't know about Dante until I played psabr. Then I found out about people either loving or hating him. And I've come to the conclusion.... that.....

except it can't be since they changed him being half human/half demon to being demon/angel.

it was a reboot and it failed hard, so they are making excuses.

Except the story doesn't make sense at all as a prequel

And also it was never called a reboot it was called a "Re-imagining"

Its confirmed to take place in a parallel universe. So its a complete reboot with no connection to the rest.

The story in an ironic, "style-fighter" doesn't make sense? Hold on...
*walks outside to grab some oxygen and feel the wind in his hair*
*returns*

Plot-holes don't necessarily ruin a story. And especially not if it's a work of satire, a comedy playing for laughs.
Can an inconsistency wound a film like Inception? Yes. Austin Powers? Probably not.
*Closes "Storytelling 101" book then throws it out of the window*

You don't JUST change everything about something and then call it the same thing  

 

BUT THIS REMINDS ME OF SOMETHING

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ship_of_Theseus Just replace the ship with Dante 

 

and are you seriously comparing DMC with Austin Powers?
