Why? This isn't a sequel to Enslaved or Heavenly Sword! This is DMC it has nothing to do with previous titles the developer has created. In the same way that Dead Rising 2 wasn't similar to baseball game 'the bigs' that Blue Castle developed prior to the Multimillion selling DR2, and the same way that SFIV co developed by Dimps had nothing to do with Sonic The Hedgehog 4!

Working with a developer is a lot more than looking at their previous games. But the skills that they have and what they can bring to the table and how our skills at Capcom can benefit them in our marriage.

I understand we don't know everything yet - but gathering the few bits we do know, I just have a hard time picturing this ending well.

So we haven’t had a good DMC for 8 years? DMC4 had lost it's mojo in your and many other fans eyes? If anything then we need to explore how to get back to the fun, excitement and enjoyment of the first three games while reatining the core DNA that make the games so unique?

Would you agree that was the most important thing?

I must have spent more time playing DMC3 and DMC3:SE than any other game on the PS2, I never got bored.

Can totally understand this, i'd probably be the same.

But 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.

We just care about the direction of the series and hope it doesn't go horribly wrong.

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).

I promise that the game is in very good hands of extremely talented developers both at Capcom and Ninja Theory

But the loading stages, the old school linear level design, were a hassle?!

Lets be honest they were great games (averageing in the low 80's on metacritic) but not perfect. We’re now aiming to make the perfect DMC game that gets 90's
Imagine this to be a Capcom Achievement for working for Capcom Europe
