So, I was talking with a friend of mine about video games, particularly the action horror genre. She had said something about not being able to find many new ones, so I of course pointed out the new Resident Evils, Silent Hill 8, and DMC4. Then I went to see if there were any newer ones. What did I find? DMC 5! I was excited, as a fan of the series. However, what I saw was... this. I couldn't help but ask myself: "What the hell?"
As I continued to find videos and a some articles on the game I kept getting mixed stories. Some were saying "Don't worry! It's an alternate universe." Whereas others say that it really IS Dante, and it's right after DMC4. Then I was hearing that this is some kind of origin thing, like a DMC Zero or something. So, my question is simple. Is this an origin, alternate universe, or a sequel? Also, should the creative director for DMC 5 be FIRED for making Dante look like him.

On the left you see Tameem Antoniades (creative director), on the right is the "new Dante". >.>

I'm not really one to closely follow gaming news, but to my knowledge this is going to be a prequel gig.

...does this new Dante even actually look like the old one though, face-wise? Because that shouldn't change at all.

I think he should be fired. I hate it when people who take someone else's creation and inject their ideas into it to a point that it looks like some fan's fantasy or something.

If he had to look like anyone from Capcom, it should have been Hideki Kamiya.

*Sigh* Well, the fact that it's a prequel makes me feel slightly better about this whole ordeal. Even so, they shouldn't have changed his appearance so drastically.

No. Nothing like the old Dante.

Observe! This is how he looked in DMC 4:

DMC 1:

"New" Dante:

See? Nothing alike.

On a side note: HAHAHAH!!! THD, that was an awesome image.
:D
Breakman...you make me so happy. :)

You know, he is part demon. Maybe he can change his appearance to whoever he wants?

...No, no, no! It still doesn't make any sense! ^^;

That sounds like a cop out as big as "Mega Man doesn't fit in the game, he doesn't have enough possible attacks". :P

I heard so many people are enraged by this... New Dante, that Capcom might change it back to the rightful Dante. XD
Kind of like how SO MANY PEOPLE are pissed about the New Cole in inFamous 2. I AM ENRAGED too. XD
I am a DMC Fan, and I do love the DMC1-4 Dantes the most, but who knows, maybe people will warm up to an... Emo....Goth...Dante...?
..Screw it. I WANT THE OLD DANTE! NAOW!
