Fans can be a fickle bunch. The idea for a reboot to the Devil May Cry series seemed inappropriate to a lot of those fans, which is understandable. It's got a hardcore fan base well established among the gaming community with the kick ass rock hard Devil himself Dante leading the charge.
When the previous game in the series, Devil May Cry 4 entered the scene in 2008 - it was a risky attempt to draw a new fan base with a new leading protagonist Nero, a younger demon hunter that resembled very similar features as Dante.
Fast forward five years later to now and we have a new Devil May Cry game, simply titled DMC or DMC: Devil May Cry. Yes, perhaps the title could have been better not to confuse people with the original game; it seems to be the trend when reboots happen nowadays. This time around we have a younger Dante, set in his own origin and personal vendetta, with a new developer - Ninja Theory (Ninja Gaiden series) taking the reins from Capcom.
Now to firstly get this off my chest, there has been a lot of speculation whether DMC is a reboot or a prequel. I wouldn't really say DMC is a reboot, since the origin itself hasn't really been told from this point of view when Dante was still in his teen-like years - I see it as a prequel to Devil May Cry 3 personally.
When the first footage and screens for DMC came out a few years ago revealing a young, punk Dante - gamers were up in arms with the character design and a huge backlash tainted the game which is still happening to this day. However if you check out the video and screens today the fully polished design of the young Dante is very different and a huge improvement from first shown. Whether the backlash from the community changed the result or the design was merely a work in progress is unknown.
