Capcom says they knew the risks they took when they decided to go in a very different direction with the Devil May Cry reboot, which is currently under development.
“There is always going to be a core fanbase that will question our intentions,” Capcom’s European marketing boss Michael Pattison said while speaking with MCV. “Whenever you try and change an established franchise, you are always going to upset a few people that are going to be a little bit concerned about what you’re doing with the brand. That’s understandable. We feel there is more confidence amongst people that have gone hands-on.”
Well, it’s a good thing they were prepared, then, because DmC got a lot of stick for the changes it seems like it’s going to make to the franchise’s formula. Dante’s “emo” look isn’t especially popular among the fans, for one.
