I guess this is a good a place as any to mention Ni-Oh, the long, long, loooooooooong-delayed Team Ninja game, has finally been re-revealed and will be out next year, exclusively for PS4. Remember, this game was supposed to be a PS3 launch title.

EDIT: oh yeah, Devil's Third is out in most of the world. It's... an Itagaki game.

Well that looks really cool and I'm glad Geralt is still finding work after Witcher III.

For example, did you guy's know that Kamiya-san was initially adamant against Dante having a jump in DMC1, to the point where other team members had to convince him that the combat was getting too complicated without a jump?

Or, that if DMC3 didn't turn out well, Itsuno was basically determined to quit his job? This was coming after he was forced to develop DMC2, after all.

Or how while the half-Angel/half-Demon concept came from Ninja Theory and had those concepts they wanted to integrate, Itsuno said they had very little in the way of a vision for gameplay.

Or how Iwata is a giant perv that spent most of his time working on DMC4 Lady's short shorts. These interviews are hilarious. Itsuno also mentions how all Ninja Theory women look the same, lol.

Kamiya is a believer of the Mortal Kombat principle.

Imagining this in my head, it meant that DMC would've been a Souls-like game instead of stylish action...

Well that explains the song from DMC1's OST titled "Karnival": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=irfjUv95aE4 I always thought that was a strange name.

Yeah, there's a lot of cool stuff on the book. Aside of the tidbits posted before, there's some that stood out to me:

- The series is supposed to be set on a fictional europe in the eighties. They didn't wanted to worry about having cellphones or computers but they wanted to have TVs

- Dante's design was always meant to be that of a foreigner

- DMC3 was developed originally under that assumption it was a parallel universe, it was later that they worked it into a prequel story for DMC

- Not a real susprise but the team's original direction for Dante it was of this nihilistic anti-hero that reluctantly used his demon inheritance to fight evil. Kamiya was the one who came and said "gently caress that noise, he must be having FUN"

- For DMC2 they tried for an action packed B-movie feel while for DMC3 they were said to go nuts and just fill the game with over the top craziness not present neither in DMC2 nor DMC

- Lady's original look was inspired by Julia Volkova from t.A.T.u. The scenario writer wanted her to be an older smoking badass to serve as mentor for Dante but Itsuno pushed the schoolgirl look since "it was the only way for her to be popular with the japanese

- Jester was originally meant to be a different character from Arkham but after realizing that would conflict with the gameplay they were combined into one character.

- Nero was written first as Dante and then spun into his own character

- DMC4's scenario writer literally refers to Kyrie as "cookie-cuter admirable big sister type"

- Sanctus was originally named Benedict, but then Pope Benedict was elected and they changed his name

- Itsuno says that NT is great to build visuals but they aren't used to link that to gameplay.

Would anyone like a new thread so I can write a big OP about the Debiru Mei Kurai series and sort of make it a bit of a stylish action game general?

Considering this one still mentions the upcoming reboot in the title that is probably not a bad idea.

Since this thread's kind of come back, does anybody have any links to good tips/etc pages? I'm playing on PS4 so I don't really have access to a practice mode and my performance in BP is wildly inconsistent (basically depending on how much I cheese using JFJC). I watched the advanced Vergil tutorial (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UF16RaBq9V4) which was good but I'm looking for more in-depth stuff.

I'm having a lot of fun doing weapon switches and trying out new combos, etc. I have either massive success or I get completely destroyed. It's more fun than just using Yamato though.
