So, as you probably have (or haven’t) heard, DMC, or as some like to call it, Devil May Cry 5, has announced its arrival (yet, no release date…). Fans have made it clear that they, A, like the changes, or B, want to murder the entire production crew. Go figure. You think Capcom would have seen this coming, ehh?
In the previous DMC series, Dante has always been our silver-haired protagonist in his familiar red trench coat. And that was cool. He was a pretty kick-ass guy. Now, Capcom/ Ninja Theory turned a complete 180.

At the end of the DMC 4 era, don’t remember when…, DMC 5 was announced to be more “Westernized to better suit American and British style games”. Apparently, we all took that the wrong way.
We thought: fighting style!
They thought: game design!
