E3: DmC Devil May Cry, Sly Cooper and Nintendo Use Non-WiiU Footage

As E3 wakes up, here’s your second round of news information!

DmC Devil May Cry: 360, PS3 – No Confirmed Release Date

Capcom have released a gameplay trailer for the contreversy-coated origin story of Dante. Fans of the series have been up in arms over the game, upset over the changes to Dante’s look. While the gameplay does look similar to prior itirations, it probably is unfair to judge it purely on a younger version of the arguably iconic Dante. Judge for yourselves if the game could be good, or if the look threatens to ruin what could be a fantastic game.

Sly Cooper: Theives in Time: Ps3 Exclusive – Due Out 2012

Sony have confirmed the rumours that Sucker Punch Productions are not in charge of Sly Cooper 4 due to their commitments to the inFamous series. Instead, Sanzaru Games have been gifted with overseeing Sly’s first outing since 2005. While fans are understandably anxious, it should be noted Sanzaru were behind the HD ports of the original trilogy onto the PS3, so have experience with how to treat the series with respect. The trailer shows promise, you can check it out below.

WiiU – Due 2012

Nintendo’s press conference blew everyone away, and for those lucky enough to be watching it were amazed at the WiiU and what the graphics were capable of. However, hindsight is 20:20, especially with the reveal that President of Nintendo America Reggie Fils-Aime admitted that the video wasn’t showing Wii U footage — it was showing footage from PS3 and 360 versions of the games in question. While Nintendo haven’t done anything wrong – the hardware is nowhere near ready yet, and E3 participants have been toying with tech demos at the booth. However, they used the footage to give people an idea of what to expect.

While this is disheartening, it is not the end of the world, and Nintendo cannot be scalded until we see the WiiU ((Or Wii Universe as I will now call it, WiiU is too silly)) in it’s finished form. I don’t have  a video for this, so here’s the Super Mario 3DS trailer again.

  1. I don’t really think Nintendo’s Conference really blew anyone away….and DmC is going to be one of the biggest sh*tfests of all time.

    Sly 4 looks good though.

  2. Nintendo did impress me this year again. Even without a trailer or anything the announcement of not one but TWO new Smash Bros. games is just amazing. Plus other great games such as Luigi’s Mansion 2 and more info about Super Mario 3D. I better start saving every penny i find!

    1. Origin Tales are always perilous, but Capcom aren’t stupid, they’ll treat this title with respect.

      If I’m wrong, feel free to mock me openly

      1. Well, they did manage to lose the guy who created Dante in the first place, soooo…

        The thing about DMC (and Viewtiful Joe, and MadWorld, and Bayonetta, and Kamiya’s style in general) is that it’s so tongue-in-cheek that the tongue’s basically pushed through it and into the skull of the person next to it. If Capcom doesn’t understand that, then the new game will be quite embarrassing. There’s nothing sadder than a goofy story premise being taken 100% seriously. We’ll see, I guess.

        1. Yeah, the gameplay will probably be fine, but the tone of the game in general is looking to be mega bad so far. Is it confirmed an origin story, because I was assuming it was a reboot?

          1. From what the makers have said, I’ve understood it to be exploring what made Dante Dante, so I assume it’s an Origins until confirmed otherwise
