It’s been rumoured, although now it’s official that Heavenly Sword and Enslaved developer Ninja Theory are working on the next game in Capcom’s Devil May Cry series. DmC is said to redefine the franchise and is set to have dark and brutal gameplay. The story is one of revenge.

Dante himself has also seen a redesign, now with shorter and darkened hair – it’s a design that will likely better appeal to us western lot.

The game itself still combines guns and swords, and typically there will be new powers and weapons, but the gameplay will be somehow revitalised.

Ninja Theory’s Tameem Antoniades is taking care of the creative direction, but the game has also been overseen by Capcom’s Hedeaki Itsuno, who is very familiar with Devil May Cry, having had involvement with all prior games in the series.

DmC is to be released for Xbox 360 and PS3. No announcements have been in regards to a release window.
