Capcom: “We Were Surprised At The Reaction DmC Received”
It’s been nearly six months since Capcom revealed the next entry to the Devil May Cry franchise. Even though DmC has left some fans of the series ( including this one ) with a bad taste in their mouths, Capcom remains confident that “a few sheepish people” will sing a different tune once more information about the game is shared.
Responding to the concerns of several members of the Capcom Europe official message boards, a company representative recently reassured fans that DmC will be “one of the greatest Devil May Cry titles ever created.”
As for concerns over NT development skills please don’t worry. Capcom are heavily involved in the development of all it’s IP being worked upon by outside parties. The exact same concerns were raised over Dead Rising 2 being made by Blue Castle games, which were totally ill founded, on what was an excellent game that ‘got’ everything that made the first game so amazing.
…..we haven’t handed over the family silver to some strangers we are working with Ninja Theory on this together. We believe that by going down this route we can breath new life into the franchise and make a game that sits above DMC3 for this generation.
In response to someone who stated that Capcom expected the negative backlash….
We were surprised at the reaction its received, we’d hope that some fans might have gone to more depth to look a bit closer at things in the trailer (a few have done).
And regarding whether or not DmC will be as good as previous entries…
Lets be honest they were great games (averaging in the low 80′s on metacritic) but not perfect. We’re now aiming to make the perfect DMC game that gets 90′s.
The Capcom rep declined to say when gamers will get a chance to see more of DmC but did reiterate that they “ultimately aim to work with Ninja Theory to create the greatest DMC that’s ever been made.”
