I think nico was confirmed to be agnus's daughter in one of the videos i watched. That feels like overkill.

Is that for real?! It is just me or this DMC's story will edgier than edgy.Not only they will smash together DMC incompatible canon as they will make it up to eleven.
That black haired boy/girl is Dante's son for sure too.

What video though? Cause out there it's full of people so convinced of their speculations about this game to pass them off as facts.

Ok, he literally pulled that "daughter of Agnus" stuff out of his backside there. That interview he's referring to doesn't mention Agnus in the slightest. I should know, I linked it somewhere in this very thread and went through it to write down every single new point they made to make a TL;DW about it.

Unless it's stated somewhere else I don't know of, that is pure invention. She's only been confirmed to be Nell's granddaughter.

I'm starting to feel this game is somewhat of a "soft reboot": they will rewrite some parts, using novels and other media as sources and bring back Mundus for the Grand Finale.
Maybe we will know more about Sparda, Eva and probably Dante will have Vergil on his side or (at least) join forces to take Mundus down and for all, just like Sparda did.

Elaborating on my point from earlier, I feel that DMC has always suffered from creative sterility by re-treading a lot of the same ground over and over. And so fighting Mundus yet again would feel redundant when Dante already overcame him at the end of the first game and if handled poorly bringing him back in 5 could undermine all the drama and pathos of 1.

In essence I'd much rather have a brand new villain, unconnected to Sparda. You could so easily write someone new in since DMC's expanded universe remains a well of untapped potential.

In an interview with Gamespark, producer Okabe confirmed that battle music will change depending on your Style rank. For example, when your Style rank increases, the chorus of the song will start playing.
Reminds me of Sonic Unleashed where if your Rank goes low the music goes really bad and out of tune/sync. :D

I was watching one of the videos they used for the trailer and I noticed that the red orbs are way smaller this time around. Not sure how I feel about it.

At least they kept red orbs though, right? They could’ve completely got rid of them.

That doesn't mean much though. Orbs can vary in size depending on the Style meter or what move you use as a finisher. Maybe in those gameplay segments the Style meter simply wasn't high enough, we can't tell because the HUD was hidden.

This is actually pretty old and maybe it belongs in the DMC4 section but screw it, here it goes.

I haven't actually finished watching it, but let's see how it goes.
