Many fans were unconvinced when Capcom announced that Ninja Theory was handling development of the new DmC: Devil May Cry, but the publisher says the development team was very dedicated and keen to listen to the wisdom of the original series’ creators.
Alex Jones, a producer working at Capcom, tells VG247
that, “These guys have been amazing, like most developers would had three or four random guys from Japan show up at some point and start lecturing them about how to do stuff, and it might not have gone as well.”
Both sides were willing to listen to each other’s ideas and modify the DmC experience to best fit the common ground that they found.
The new Devil May Cry will be launched on January 15 on the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 and on January 25 on the PC.
