So... a trailer for this has been screened at E3, and
let me share with you my live reaction now, straight
message board where somebody posted it:
Dante in another game??
adrenaline rush... ARGH LOOK WHAT YOU'VE DONE!!!
Can't... think straight... now... >.<"
WOW that just hit me out of NOWHERE!!
Jeez, just when I think I have my
Dante obsession under control, something like this
comes up and triggers an orgasmic chain reaction that
makes my brain go haywire and my heart feel like it's
about to explode... Must breathe...
*deeeeeep breeeaaath* Oh. My. God. Dante's finally
going to be in a one on one fighting game!! I've been
waiting on this for YEARS!! Starting 2nd quarter of
2011, Deadpool is about to get deader. =D
seeing some people saying that Dante can't really
carry the Devil May Cry series anymore because he's
"getting old." And not getting old as in
getting boring, but getting old as in old age. Perhaps
this is simply a disagreement on the nature of aging,
but I really don't understand this line of reasoning.
If you're half demon-lord, chances are you will not
age like a human. I'm betting you'd live to be several
hundred years, and probably not show it for a long
time. Dante has centuries of peak
physical condition yet to go. That is all.

Reuben Langdon is Dante's voice actor in Devil May
Cry 3, and here's him doing gravity-defying live
action moves for motion capture:
here's a live action Devil May Cry 3 commercial he
I am... sooo... turned
on... right now.....
than a month ago, nobody knew anything about this
mystery boy. I thought he was pretty. Not as pretty as
Dante, but still very pretty. Now that I've seen the
Devil May Cry 4 trailer, I feel I could share my
opinion about this newcomer to the series. But no
essay I write could possibly convey the feelings
foremost in my mind, so instead I shall copy paste an
actual conversation I had on this subject:
NERO MUST DIE! CaT: lol, when I'm done with my site, you can
vote for that. I'm gonna make a new poll. But...
that'll be a few days from now. Me: ahh... what are the options? I need a
choice of creative, slow deaths. CaT: well, the options are straightforward, and
the question is this: "your impression of Nero:
1) positive, 2) negative, 3) in between, 4) dunno." Me: I missed the "KILL HIM!!!"
option. Can there be a "KILL HIM!!!" option?
pretty pleeeeze? CaT: lol, that's negative. That's a surprise
coming from you. I thought you'd like him, lol. Me:no,
negative is "hm, I don't like Nero"...
doesn't quite capture the "I don't like Nero...
AND I WANT TO RIP OUT HIS EYEBALLS, BREAK HIS LEGS,
AND STAB HIM THROUGH THE HEART WITH HIS OWN
BONES!!!" CaT: why? Cause he kicked Dante in the face?
lol. Me: THAT'S WHY HE SHOULD BE FORCE FED HIS OWN
INTESTINES!! CaT: lol, that's the only reason? Me: yes. CaT: hahahaha, that's very like you. You should
blame Dante too, you know, for being so clumsy, lol. Me: Dante is not clumsy ever! CaT: sure... that scene is priceless, lol Me: priceless? It will cost him HIS LIFE!! CaT: lol relax, hon. Me: *hyperventilates*
summation, I do not like Nero. I hate him very much.
He is a mere human with none of Dante's epic past,
style, or attitude. He has no precedent in the games
(unlike, say, Vergil/Nelo-Angelo) to justify being
cast as the main character. And yes, he kicked Dante
in the face.
May Cry 4...
where to begin... This is more of a retrospect of my
impressions of information that has been released
about Devil May Cry 4 in the past year.
first thing we were given were a vague teaser
featuring scenes from Devil May Cry, Devil May Cry 2,
and Devil May Cry 3, ending with Dante standing in a
filed of snow overlooking a castle. From here there
circulated screencaps of Dante in the
snow, his face
looking awfully stretched out. It was a little
worrying, but I told myself it was just a test render.
came an even more vague teaser that had Dante do a few
stylish moves against the backdrop of a city street.
Dante looked hideous, but I stayed calm, telling
myself it was yet another test render and its sole
purpose was to show the capabilities of the
could have prepared me for the ultimate revelation:
Dante was not the main character. Also, he had a
beard. I was not sure which was worse.
it wasn't exactly a beard, more like dark stubble. You
could barely see it in the grainy screencaps that were
available at the time. Nevertheless, my mind was
swirling with shock and denial. Dante with a beard?
This can not be happening. Dante does NOT have a
beard. Absolute blasphemy! I was ready to cry as
my hopes for enjoying Dante's divine likeness through
PS3 graphics were crushed beyond repair.Does
that make me superficial? Maybe, maybe not. Honestly,
I would love Dante no matter what he looked like. But
now there was question as to whether you would be able
to play as Dante at all.
was expressedly not the main character of Devil May
Cry 4. That role was assigned to Nero, a human youth
with a festering demonic arm. He moves like Dante,
uses guns and swords like Dante, fights demons like
Dante, has a trenchcoat like Dante, and has white hair
like Dante... but he's not Dante.What
gives? Who the hell is this guy? Why bother switching
Dante's longstanding title role for somebody who is
essentially his clone? If Capcom released a game
centered around Vergil or Sparda, that would be
understandable (and very welcome), but Nero has no
links to any of the previous three Devil May Cry
watching the official
trailer, I got a better idea of
what was going on. Nero and Dante don't like each
other. Dante seems to be after the demonic influence
controlling Nero's arm and Nero isn't being
cooperative. Nero and Dante even fight. I've heard
from unofficial sources that Nero is involved in a
Sparda-worshipping cult that is trying to bring about
his resurrection, but don't quote me on that. Despite
his limited appearance in the trailer, Dante dominates
it with his presence. He makes his entrance by
crashing through the roof of a church, beard stubble
really enjoyed the trailer and Dante's style in it. He
amazing with blood splashed on his face! My
mind learned to block out his beard. As far as I'm
concerned it's shadows, demonic ashes, fairy dust,
what have you, but not a beard! Given time, I'm sure
it'll be wiped from my vision entirely.The
gameplay and graphics look absolutely breathtaking,
and I'm looking forward to playing it... as long as I
can play Dante.
