Dante's weapons are getting stupider and stupider...
I think this is that super expensive item they were talking about. An extra, not a main weapon. For the sounds of it it's made for halo farming, or, in this case, orb farming. You put some in, the better you do the more your return. Anyway, until someone releases that full conference we won't know what exactly the deal is, but, either way, you don't have to use anything you don't want to. You don't even have to cycle passed it if you don't want.

Cerberus was cool but i rather Agni and Rudra or Nevan popped up as they have more interesting dynamics with Dante. But Cerberus having elemental forms seems cool.

I like the hat and scarf thing but i wish he threw the hat at someone and it comes back ( like mario's hat from oddysey).

Oh, was it? I thought they said that was a super fancy taunt. Granted, I didn't pay much attention to that discussion because it was mostly conjecture about the orbs and "economy." I suppose that sure as hell looks like taunts, either way.

Hey
Literally? No. I saw this **** on twitter, and it's moronic that people have completely lost all semblance of context of that entire presentation. The whole thing was about the art direction of the game, and talking about how the highly stylized Dante didn't fit with real world, western aesthetics. So there's a slide depicting Dante, wearing his stupid chaps-wearing bullshit, in an award-winning film about actual, contemporary, salt-of-the-earth cowboys. Could they have chosen any other movie? Sure! And they did, there was slides of him in Fight Club and such, and hey, this is what they went with.

The irony of it all is now DMC5 is giving us heavily realistic character designs, where Dante himself is literally just wearing a red leather coat, a sweatshirt, and jeans and boots, like a normal dude. No red vests and red leather pants; no straps, no buckles, and no dumb leather chaps.

It is unfathomably stupid that people think Ninja Theory was somehow insinuating that Dante was...what? Gay? Like, everyone who is ****ed about this is sort of insinuating that being gay is bad, because "how dare they put Dante in the gay cowboy movie," right? It's a lot of leaps in logic, and it shows how utterly shameful the fanbase could get.

And also - how does a fedora and Michael Jackson-inspired moves equate to Dante's render in a shot from a movie about cowboys falling in love? Thinking that the devs have any kind of ill-will towards NT is some true, conspiracy theorist hate-on stroking.

I don't know. I'm guessing. It's still too early in the game to say so but it seems to me like it.

Oh, It's just a joke. Not an actual assault on the presentation back then or a critique on the new weapon.

So Nero killed Nico's dad? :eek: I guess the rumor of her being Agnus's kid could be true after all.

Or perhaps it's like having Rebellion and Beowulf equipped at the same time, or how if you have Artemis equipped, that thing is on your arm the whole time.

I'll tell yah what, though. It looked real funky that the nunchucks were on his back, instead of his waist, like before.

Apologies man. I saw someone on twitter barfing about it before, got my hackles up. It's still one of the dumbest complaints to come out of DmC's like, existence.

We don't the specifics of what that was. We never saw the list of purchasable items and its just some journalist or one saying it was a bonus like a taunt...I mean Faust does have its own unique taunts. We don't know the exact details of Faust it might not even be a weapon or a gun.

If it is well it really embodies the statement that "You gotta spend money to make money" but if its not and its something you can earn easily in the game then Itsuno even further invalidates the reason for microtransanctions

It could be a gun weapon that he was using at the moment. It did seem to be range and he wasn't using any other firearms.

So basically it kinda kills that "spoilers" we got. We already know that dante has at least 5 melee weapons and so far 2 projectile weapons.

So, Cerberus is back, but can also be a fire staff and a lightning whip? Interesting? I guess? Except for the fact that it'll probably use the janky mode switch system that Balrog does, and that's just...disappointing.


You know if you paid attention rather than just jump to conclusions you'd notice that Cerberus instantly reverts back to its nunchuck form right after finishing attacks in its other forms and if pay close attention at 0:09 after he does the ground strike with the fire staff it was reverting right back to its nunchuck form but he cancel that animation into a different fire bo staff attack and back to its nunchuck form after finishing the attack.

So its probably just input and move based unless that guy is quickly changing forms (unlikely)

Who says Faust is a melee weapon?

Also Kalina Ann 2 was confirmed at NYCC but never shown for some reason

I'm not counting Faust. But we already saw Rebellion, Sparda, Cerberus, gloves and Cavalier. Also Scythe may or not be Sparda another form.

We haven't seen the full moveset for Sparda and Rebellion but so far Sparda is looking like a Rebellion skin. So would it make sense to count those as 2 separate weapons right now Cavaliere and Cavaliere R are more unique compared to Sparda and Rebellion?

What was the rumor?

That he has 3 melee and 3 projectile weapon. While it may be true about projectile, we definitely see more melee weapon
