Devil May Cry Director Hideaki Itsuno Says New Game is “Progressing Smoothly”

We still don’t really know anything regarding Devil May Cry director Hideaki Itsuno’s new game, but that isn’t stopping the Japanese creator from endlessly teasing us with vague updates for its progress.

The director apologized for the game not being shown at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo, but also had to let out a subtle tease for the current status of his new game.

“Sorry to not announce anything at E3. Please wait as my project is progressing smoothly,” Itsuno said. Damn you sir, you’re such a tease!

We’ll keep you guys posted with Hideaki Itsuno and everything Devil May Cry related – watch our feed and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel as well as our big E3 2017 megathread for all our upcoming videos and previews!

    Dragon’s Dogma 2 should be good.

    Devil May Cry (accent on the capital M here) is the only thing from Capcom that interests me and even then I have a worry in the back of my head that they’ll mess it up.

    Whether it’s DMC, Dragon’s Dogma or something new, I’ll be looking forward to it. Hopefully we can get an announcement at PSX or something.

    Watch it be a open world game where Dante has to climb a bunch of towers.

    DMC fans are just as pathetic as Metroid fans. “We need a new game, or we’ll RIOT!”

    Here’s an idea: Play something else. Unlike Metroid, there are tons of better action titles out there, including Ninja Gaiden Black, Bayonetta, The Wonderful 101, and others.

    That’s Ubisoft’s thing. Capcom will cut a bunch of content, put in a couple of season passes and censor Lady’s boobs. Also microtransactions.

    Capcom’s been sitting on a pile of gold for nine years now. It’s called DMC4 and it starred the most fleshed-out combat DMC has ever had with Dante.

    I’m personally not looking forward to a Dragon’s Dogma 2 announcement though I know in the back of my head that it will be exactly that. DMC can still make Capcom a fortune but they keep using Dante as if he’s way past his prime. In actuality, a new feature-length DMC with DMC4’s combat in it would make Capcom millions.

    Maybe it’s not just the action bits people like? Maybe people, I dunno, like Dante the character and want to see him in a new game? No one hated the DMC reboot because of the gameplay, which was frequently praised, they hated it because it shat all over the characters and the established story.

    Eh, the gameplay in the reboot was shit as well – no lock-on, 30FPS, colour coded enemies etc.

    Also don’t bother with Travis – he’s trolling as usual.

    The combat in DMC4 is the peak of hack and slash gameplay. Not only that, but DMC is Capcom’s third most profitable franchise after Resident Evil and Monster Hunter. DMC4 was the best selling hack and slash behind only the God of War games. My guess is that they lost a lot of money on DmC (as they should have) and got burned, which is why they are not bringing it back.

    Yeah, forgot about that one. Looking at the wiki (link) DMC is actually Capcom’s 5th most profitable franchise. Ironically Mega Man is number 4.

    Pretty much all their recent stuff has been shit. RE7 split the fanbase again and Monster Hunter still won’t allowed to release its console versions; those are its best launches. How was the most recent Ace Attorney?

    -Ability to be a loli taken out
    -Preset Pawns
    -Regeared to be a Dark Souls ripoff
    -No over the top attacks and magic
    -Barely anything in the customizer with you needing to pay microtransactions for them
    -Barely any armor/clothing in the game with you needing to buy DLC packs that have infinity+ weaponry
    -No climbing monsters
    -No relationships
    -Gameplay will likely be replaced by watered down Monster Hunter
    -Forced VR
    -Used as an advertisement for whatever they put out around that time

    RE7 split the fanbase because as with literally every fanbase with million of entries on its list over decades they have absolutely no idea what they want.

    >we hate the Action RES games
    >we want another RES6
    >we love RE4 despise being the start of the shitstorm
    >we love the original
    >we hate the new back to its roots one

    Also, Capcom is bringing Monster Hunter back to Consoles and even PC, so I’ve no idea what you are on about.

    The DMC reboot happened because DMC4 is trash. People can praise Dante’s gameplay all they want, doesn’t mean shit when there are no levels or bosses designed for him to fight in. If Capcom wants DMC5 to happen, they need to stop with the filler and the dated pacing.

    If it’s not Dragon’s Dogma 2 then I honestly don’t give two sh!ts really. Capcom has been pissing me off over the past decade and I’m seriously tired of their bullsh!t.
    These morons actually thought that SF2 bullsh!t was a good idea, that’s how retarded Capcom’s upper management are.

    They seemed to have fixed a lot of the gameplay issues with the PS4 version, though the story is still trash and the PC version didn’t get the updates (unless I’m mistaken).

    Also interacting with Travis is fun, he’s too entertaining to ignore.

    I’ve heard that they did some tweaks with the remastered version, but I didn’t care at this point – I already decided to boycott it for multiple reasons.

    Interacting with trolls is giving them exactly what they want – attention. Starving them is the way to go.

    How much of a retard can you be m80?
    Metroid and Devil May Cry fans ain’t mad about their favorite franchises laying dormant for years
    we Get mad because publishers take big steaming dumps on our beloved IPs then blame the fans when said turds flop
    It happened with Other M and it happened with DmC and want to make sure to get our anger across so that it may never happen again
    I sure as fuck enjoyed Ninja Gaiden, Bayoneta, Ori and the Blind Forest Hollow Knight etc
    but just because i have more games of the same genere does not mean i aint gonna roast publishers for shittin on my favoirite franchises

    I’ve been at least hoping for remasters of their PS2 library for PC (and consoles for those who care) for a long fucking time, given how obsessed Capcom is with re-releasing their games. It’s a sad and ironic twist of fate that there’s nothing of the sort in sight.

    No, RE7 split the fanbase because they went Silent Hill with it and had kept showing a ton of gameplay video with just walking and jump scares with the announcement that they were making it for VR; things that would split the classic RE fanbase. RE4 still had its connection to the old ways but the later action games suffered from constantly ramping the action up with each subsequent entry while turning the story into shit along with it, fucking up the tone with lighting with the hordes of enemies, forced Co-Op, and big weapons with tons of ammo.

    The reason for the original split isn’t because people don’t know what they want; it’s that there are people who legitimately enjoy one type of gameplay over the other.

    They always had it on Consoles, just not outside of Japan which will apparently continue with XX which should make people wary of World since it’s drastically different from Capcoms usual Digital and handheld only stance with their Nintendo games so something has to have had changed with this Monster Hunter game to have allowed it to leave its handheld prison in the West.
