The trailer shows off new, younger looking, Dante, running through Limbo City, attempting to set things straight using his trusted pistols, Ebony and Ivory, as well as his other iconic weaponry. Through the trailer we see various demons and monstrosities that players will no doubt be facing, and plenty of carnage to boot. Devil May Cry comes with a well-deserved Mature rating, with ESRB citing the game for mature audiences for "Blood and gore, drug reference, intense violence, nudity, sexual content, and strong language." The trailer, of course, should only be viewed by mature audiences.
This reboot of the popular Capcom franchise has found some strong criticisms from long-time fans. Many fans feel that the new, younger Dante breaks too much away from the traditional games. Some of the more extreme fans have even issued death-threats to the game's developers, Ninja Theory.
Capcom chose Ninja Theory to develop the reboot, after seeing their work on 2007's Heavenly Sword, which received positive reviews across the board, and was praised for the game's combat system. Capcom felt that Ninja Theory was capable of developing the type of game they wanted the Devil May Cry reboot to be.
Look for Devil May Cry on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, January 15th. PC gamers must wait a bit longer, as the PC release is ten days later, on January 25th.
