Capcom released some new information about the upcoming DMC Devil May Cry (still nothing about what's up with the redundant title), but honestly, what more do you need to know besides the fact that the new Dante is younger and hotter?
Okay, fine. He's not human, but he's also not like the demons that tortured him throughout his life. Seems he grew up in a variety of orphanages and institutions, but they were mostly operated by demons. So that's gotta suck. This is why he hates demons and wants to kill them, I suppose.
He has two weapons: the Rebellion sword and his guns, Ebony and Ivory. The game's designers tried to make them look both modern and ancient, and used the same elements on the sword's hilt and the guns' grips to link them together. However, the origins of the weapons are a mystery. The sword was given to Dante by his father to protect him from the demon hunters, but the guns? Who knows?
You can take a look at Dante and his weapons in the artwork and the screenshots below! DMC Devil May Cry is due out in 2012 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
