**Special notice :: Nero is not Vergil, and thereby, Nelo is not related to Dante -- you can tell by the faces they look differently. Dante has larger features (more prominant jaw, big nose, eye-ridge) while Nero is a textbook Japanese-Nomura inspired pretty boy.

Update: (September 8th) _ New Interview with Hiroyuki Kobayashi and Hideaki Itsuno


http://www.famitsu.com/fwtv/asx/inte...60908_dmc4.asx

The game takes place after DMC1, in a city called Fortuna -- this appears to be a view (in part) of Fortuna.














The game is stated to run at 60 frames per second, according to the 2ch guy who posted the original details of DMC4 (which all turned out to be true).




Dante -- is no longer the main character, nor is he a focus of the story, rather Nero is. Please note, Nero is not Vergil from DMC3 or DMC1.





Nero will have many new combat abilities that differ from Dante's, one of which -- is that he doesn't have a 'devil trigger' persay, but a 'devil bringer' ability. The ability is brought through to his arm. Which is all glowing and shit. The director, said that one thing he felt was that as great as DMC3 combat-chaining system was, the combo's ended when the enemies died, so the arm (in part to many other things) can act as a grapple to continually rearrange enemies so that you can continually build up your combo's with no end to site (if you're good enough it seems):







The story details thus far is that Nero is the leader of a group that wants to resseruct Sparda. However, Dante (in this game is seen as an enemy) intrudes upon your 'base' and starts killing your generals off. As the main character -- Nero -- you gotta stop him. It is also said that you do not recognize Dante, why -- as said earlier, Nero is not Vergil. Confused? Yeah I am too. But that's why DMC4 has a story, it supposed to explain shit like that.

Itsuno also mentioned DMC4 will have a greater focus on story than the previous games.

The art director and designer is that of the Breath of Fire games (as you can tell from the art above) and the cheorographer is Yuji Shimomura, action cheorographer for the Japanese film entiled VERSUS:




Camera-Picture Scans *** will be updated when better quality (actual scans come)





Hardcore gamers am thrill, weaksauce gamers am cry.


Gameinformer 10 page feature on DMC4 to come soon to subscribers:



Producer: Hiroyuki Kobayashi (RE series, DC, DMC1, DMC4, VJ)
Director: Hideaki Itsuno (DMC series, Alpha series, Powerstone series, CvsSNK, Marvel vs. Capcom series)

Credits and works taken form mobygames.

***special thanks***

Amirox for constantly updating the threads title to match the updates.
Jett for realizing the game's gorgeous, took him awhile though.
Take out Bandit for existing.
Duckroll for the scans.
MickeyNox for cropping them.

--Please no Silent Hill pic guy either, it won't be until PS9 before that shit is beaten--

So is this just a wank thread or can we say we are underwhelmed with what we are seeing?

I don't have a problem with the character designs but overall it leaves me cold.

It'll be nice if we can explore that entire background seamlesslessly, and only load when we enter buildings/dungeons or whatever.

I dunno, that artwork of his has what seems to be his DT form, and there is space for a DT bar under his life bar in one of the screenshots posted in the other thread.

Just one little nitpick with your original post, MGS4 has a yellow tint, not green.

Dante is back to looking 200% less masculine again.

Also, it's easy to get spiffy looking visuals when you use the crutch of fixed camera angles. :lol

Why? The whole point of the game is to fight. Exploration only comes from secret missions and blue orbs, but imo there is no need for big open areas just for that.

there's one zipper on his waistcoat, he's wearing one belt, and the thing on his shoulder seems to be a holster. if there was a nomura influence here, counting the zippers and belts would be a game of its own, which game we could get to after we'd finished playing 'what gender is this person.'

...though i really like the ff13 girl's design, so maybe nomura's turned a corner or something.

Looks fine. Can't wait for more details, and to see it in motion.

One thing, though: C-, your post was really, really bad. Desperate, almost. C'mon. I'm sorry but dude...

Anyways, the team's solid, they should know what they are doing, and I'm fighting off any tinges of DMC2 I fear or feel until I see some more solid info.
