I think that some of the remaining potential characters appeal to everyone around the world, especially Cloud and Crash.

1-stop being an **bleep** on the forums everytime i see a post from you its some negative troll **bleep**

2-yes japanese gamers are not happy about new dante, a character that was theres that they now feel is destroyed because he had to be americanized.

3-get the **bleep** off

Says the person that quotes an article from two years ago as being wrong because it doesn't factor in the newest form of a popular character?

Still waiting on your proof that Japanese gamers hate what has happened to "their" character. And Americanized? lolz What was the first Dante? It's not like he had special costumes in which he modeled himself in Diesel jeans or anything.

are you serious japanese gamers still hate new dante its all over websites and forums, and the whole diesel thing isnt nothing because DMC2 isnt really looked at as a DMC game (for how slow the gameplay was, and because of dantes personality,HMM SOUNDS FAMILIAR) , besides do you have proof that they do like new dante, ill say it again all you do is troll on these forums and are a big reason for why many people left here in the first place, get off my level troll and go get a life.

When did I say they liked the new Dante? If anything fan reactions are kinda split equally. There was a lot of hate at first but since being redesigned, the huge improvement on story and characters and gameplay looking incredibly solid... Most of the reception on the new DMC has become quite more positive.

DMC2 was also disliked because it was easy and the combat was bad. Dante's change in personality didn't help too much either. DMC has none of those issues, the only change is how he looks and that he is half angel. Quite a big difference actually.

Also Trolling is a bit of a stretch but I guess if I posted stupid points based on no real facts and people pointed them out all the time I'd be annoyed as well.

 

ANNNND considering the Devil May Cry series has only once sold more than half a million copies in Japan, I really don't think a lot of people (AND I MEAN A LOT) really care much about the DMC reboot. Then again I'm sure there are a lot of people who just bad-mouth the game and have never played any of the previous games because, let's face it, it's the internet. Everyone wants to talk trash on something they know nothing about.

I think you guys are missing the point of this thread. We can't let such shoddy science go unchecked.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Omar - "what are you guys doing? Why did you get rid of crash!"
Game devs - "we wanted to put in evil Cole so we had to get rid of everyone else the fans wanted"
Omar- "Oh nice, good idea. I didn't think of that"

The real science has already been done though, hasn't it? It was already posted with the cast separated based on locational creation and sales is kinda a tricky thing to work with. You'd have to factor in population, the titles availability, and what not... So I'm not doing all of that. Ha-ha. I think Locational Creation is a fine way to show which character represents what because, for the most part, the character gets the most fans based on where it was made.
