E3 News - Dante is still angelic and devilish in prequel DmC

When gamers found out a third party was developing DmC, there were worries it would lose its original goodness. But never fear - DmC isn't straying away from its roots.

There's still the over-the-top combat with the intense and iconic sword and gun play of the original. You can still upgrade your weapons and there's additional weapons for you to choose from to dispatch the demonic spawn back to hell with panache. And when you find yourself in Limbo you'll have a medium as your guide.

Set before the action of Devil May Cry, DmC sees Dante return at an earlier stage in a gripping story that features familiar faces and scenes alongside new characters. The first thing you'll notice is that he hasn't got his look yet - in fact he's looking a little like a young Sean Bean.

At E3, we got our hands on the game for five minutes and already noticed some nice additions. Press R2 and the attack button and you can use your devil pull whip to wrench things out of the scenery. Now press Alt 2 to Angel Lift those wrenched items and attach to them. You can utilise Dante's Angel and Demon powers to chain together ground-based and aerial combos to achieve the best style ranking.

Developed by Ninja Theory, DmC is currently scheduled for release in January 2013 and will be available on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
