The new Dante is ‘all about cool’

Posted By | On 22nd, Sep. 2010

People have been talking about how the new Dante in the recently unveiled DmC looked like an emo teen and… gay (he does, but he’s smoking cigars). Creative director Tameem Antoniades, however, think’s Dante’d overhaul has made him cooler.

“It’s about Dante being cool and making you feel cool when you’re playing it, and so the combat and the style system and everything is integral to that,” he said.

“But, you know, what was cool 12 years ago, I think that was when the first game came out, isn’t cool anymore,” he continued. “If Dante, dressed as he was, walked into any bar outside of Tokyo, he’d get laughed out.”

“What Devil May Cry did when it launched was it brought everything that was great about action cinema like the fashion, music — it was like a cultural melting pot — and I feel like now, for Devil May Cry to have that same impact, it needs to draw on new things. New music, new ways of cinematography, new fashion.”

I don’t care, he looks gay, that’s all I know. Pfft, emo kids.
