    Recently the company behind the making of the new DMC game, Ninja Theory, have been sent death threats for their involvement in the making of the game. Christian Stevenson, the Corporate Officer and Senior Vice-President of Capcom, recently posted a short comment regarding the situation.

    "Death threats have no place in civilized society. Period."

    Well, I don't like the new "Dante" either, but death threats are a little over the top. Just don't play or buy the game if you hate the developers that much :/

    ya i agree, nero was good but they should have stuck to the original theme and chars like RE or MGS. besides i feel the taste no more remains in the game like it did during DMC3.
    capcom have to act like sony did after their PSN attack

    Oh boo hoo Dante looks bad oh come on, grow up, if you don't like it don't play it. There are better things worth threatening folks over.

    *Death threats* over a *video game*. Some people really have no life. I'm happy to hear a short and snappy response a'la "Deal wit'it", that's how it should been dealt with.

    The new Dante is rather shit but not shit enough for a death threat. Maybe for a nice boycott or robbery. And by robbery I mean "Break into their studios and destroy all game data".

    Unfortunately, I can't share their hate, because I've yet to actually play the game. If I actually had a reason to hate him (other than he looks "different"), it would be because I wasted my time playing a crap game with a crap story.

    I vote we form a team and follow through with this.

    He doesn't look "different"
    He looks like an emo Twilight dipshit teenager, instead of Dante. I could handle a teenage Dante, that's completely cool, but how the fuck did they get some scrawny emo kid who probably starred in Twilight, out of Dante in his teenage years?
    The artist who decided that is a complete retard.

    I hate the new Dante as much as anybody else, but death threats?

    Crazy fans, you aren't making the rest of us look any better.

    I don't think the new Dante design is terrible. I mean, he looks like a Dante/Vergil cross in this trailer.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    not really, do something that will win some fans back which can be by giving away games but they are capable of doing so since sony had/have psn. they could ACTUALLY follow people's requests and give free DLCs or announce fan-loved games etc

    I did not play any of the other DMC games, but looking at the "young" Dante compared to the regular Dante... I really think they missed some key facial features for a proper age regression. Which is most of why the character seems "off" to everyone. Really need a good side by side face to be sure, overall it could use some work.

    More On Topic, I think they should have made the death threats toward the character. Like "If you don't fix him we will make sure this franchise dies and takes the character with it."
