Videogame fans are some of the winiest fans out there. Rivaled maybe only by Trekkers and Anime junkies. Any time a discrepency comes along, the fans are there to whine and moan about it until the developers are forced to crush any semblance of creativity to appease their buyers. We saw this example with Infamous 2, where the fans rallied up petitions and whine-campaigns for the devs to change Cole back to his original form, Sucker Punch had little choice but to settle even. Thus far there seems to be even more rage surrounding the DmC trailer, spawning hateful death threat YouTube comments towards Capcom.

I, personally, think this is refreshing. Ninja Theory's lead designer stated that what "was cool 9 years ago is not cool now." Venturing into past fashions, bootcut jeans and velour tracksuits, there is a weight of truth in his statement. The re-boot has definitely made Dante's image more "current", but of course, ultimately we'll have to see how the game is in terms of gameplay. Characters are only so relevant.
