Capcom is impressed with Ninja Theory’s work.
Everyone was in rage when Capcom announced that Ninja Theory have been working on the next Devil May Cry installment, however, that fan rage has been calmed a bit after reports that DmC: Devil May Cry is actually turning out to be a fantastic game.
How do we know that? Well, the initial reviews by print magazines have been pretty good with Swedish magazine LEVEL scoring the game a 9/10, including Gamesmaster which has scored 89% as well.
“These guys have been amazing,” Capcom US producer Alex Jones told VG247. “Like most developers would had three or four random guys from Japan show up at some point and start lecturing them about how to do stuff, and it might not have gone as well.
“But the Japanese guys are super-open about knowing what Ninja Theory did well and leaving them alone to do that, and the Ninja Theory guys were really good about knowing that there is almost 30 years of fighting game experience at this table and thinking, ‘We should probably listen to them.’”
Capcom has been outsourcing a lot and haven’t been shy to give them their big franchises. However, they have also been targeting less successful studios like Ninja Theory and Slant Six. Maybe, after this game, Ninja Theory will actually get the respect it deserves, because I thought Enslaved was pretty awesome.
