From what I gathered from playing the game.... stopped at "Level 16" I still don't see this Dante contending with any of the previous cast besides Lady.

Going with Nero

Haven't beaten the new DMC completely but I'm inclined to say Nero could handle what I've seen of Dante so far.

Isn't Dante still really young in the new one?

#7 Posted by MorganFreeman (446 posts) - - Show Bio

@GunGunW: He seems to be around the age he was in DMC3, possibly a bit younger.

Nero wins and then begins to pound on New Dante`s face.

I don't know why people keep saying Dante is emo. He is a punk who does whatever he wants, not emo.

He was younger. When you hit the Devil Trigger, he transforms into DMC3 Dante. However, if you played DMC3 and beat the 1st stage, Dante sees Vergil and says something like, "Haven't seen you in years." Or something like that. In DMC you are introduced to Vergil as the twin brother. So it's probably 10 years or more.

You make it sound like the original series and DmC are on the same timeline which they are not. DmC is in an alternate reality.

I know that but I would have said, DMC1, which Dante is much older.

DMC1 Dante >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> DMC Dante

Dante is pretty fast and strong. He also easily shook off being slammed out of a building 100s of stories below so he's quite durable as well. I think it's closer than everyone makes it seem. From the comments, it just sounds like DmC haters.

#18 Posted by UltimateHero0406 (2171 posts) - - Show Bio

@GunGunW: No. It's an alternate timeline. Even if you didn't hear that announcement from Capcom, you can tell because in this one, Dante's mother is an angel instead of human and his weapons looks different. And here he gets to fight Mundus early on unlike him meeting Mundus for the first time much later on in DMC1.

@Magethor: Of course. But any version of original Dante beats Nero pretty easily which is why I used this one.

#23 Posted by gettogaara (164 posts) - - Show Bio

Well I'm pretty biased considering any interest I had in DmC disappeared after playing the demo but I'd still say Nero takes it. I mean, he was able to contest with the original Dante who is both more experienced and more powerful on multiple fronts than new Dante.

#24 Posted by GunGunW (1006 posts) - - Show Bio

@UltimateHero0406: I just kind of assumed since the last main series DMC was five years ago and they started over.

I agree but for the record he wasn't much against DMC4 Dante. In the beginning, he was going very easy and admitted that he underestimated Nero. In round 2, Dante dropped Nero pretty easily.

Dante is too badass.

@GunGunW: Well they could continue this one. But nobody ever said that the original was done, especially since it's leagues more popular. And with the fanbase rioting like it is, there's a good chance of Capcom scrapping this one.

Well, Dante was playing around afterall. But still, even if it were DMC3 Dante, he could still take out Nero while goofing off.

@UltimateHero0406: I don't know. I wouldn't put it past Capcom. this was one was really well received I honestly blame Sonic Colors for the reason why no modern Sonic game is any good at all anymore.

#30 Posted by UltimateHero0406 (2171 posts) - - Show Bio

@GunGunW: Huh? Sonic Colors was the break in the clouds. It was the start of the good games like Generations.

#31 Posted by GunGunW (1006 posts) - - Show Bio

@UltimateHero0406: Ehhhhh not really. Generations was vastly superior to Colors imo, but Colors was hard to sit through. Even the Colors level in Generations made me cringe having to sit through it. I can't stand the whole going back to 2D thing. The only 2D games I enjoy are New Super Mario Bros, and the newer ones are better anyway

Well Generation was vastly Superior because it was based on the old Sonic games.

I know Dante wasn't going all out in his fights with Nero guys lol. I'm just saying, Nero was able to keep up with him and take all of his hits. He actually impressed Dante. I'm not so sure New Dante would be able to.

Dude as much as I wish they would act like this never happened and come out with Devil May Cry 5, I don't see it happening. I'm pretty sure that if this one doesn't sell well then they'll just decide to retire the entire series since this was their attempt at a more realistic approach. And by the fan division, negative publicity and all of the better games coming down the line I doubt it will.

It's more than just holding back though. When Dante had his sword to Nero's neck and pinned to the floor, Nero said Dante looked as though he was playing with him from the beginning. And Dante was. Just watch the bit where Dante holds Nero's arm and Nero tries to yank it free only for Dante to let go and have Nero stumble across the room. It's quite funny with the Benny Hill theme playing.

But DMC4 Dante really isn't fair to talk about. Neither Nero or DmC Dante are anywhere near DMC4 Dante.

As for DmC, I'm currently partway through the mission where Dante has to kill a succubus. The fact that Dante seemed uncertain about jumping down the hole towards the bottom makes me very skeptical about Dante. Even DMC3 Dante, the weakest of the DMC1-4 Dantes, jumped off a building as tall as a skyscraper and made it seem like a fun time while he fought enemies on the way down.

The cutscene is about 2 and a half minutes.

I rather like that first comment. Dante decides to jump off a skyscraper after a vicious fight with his brother which ended with Dante having a sword planted in his chest.
