A-The first one isn't even an actual character design for DMC. Its just side fanart.

B-That's the old design. Didn't you notice that his face has DRASTICALLY changed since the initial sparks?

"I dont think new dante is emo....never said that
I just hate his personality.
I dont mind the change of his looks but he just isnt as funny or even close to "funny" as old dante.
1st of all: dante never curses he may say once hell or something like that but he always finds a way to input a funny yet very rude joke. new dante just says in every freaking trailer to everyone "**bleep** you , **bleep** you , **bleep** yoooo" he isnt funny just stupid ><"

 

Actually in the anime, which is canon, Dante does curse quite frequently. Also we have only heard DmC Dante say **bleep** you

once... not "every freaking trailer" as you suggest. So unfortunately, that part of your reason for not liking his personality is an exaggeration.

I don't like how immature he seems, the design isn't the problem its his personality. me and my friends are assuming it is just younger dante which would explain his immaturiy. also the thing that really annoys me is that now he smokes, I don't get the point in that

Twice. There was once during that one bit with the giant bug, and another when he wrote it on a clipboard. That's pretty much it though. Fanboys will always, always, ALWAYS find some stupid stuff nobody cares about to complain about.

 

To explain on smoking and mild personality changes; Ninja Theory was ordered to make a similar character who acted out differently. While Capcoms Dante acted out by wisecracking to cover up his emotional baggage, Ninja Theory's Dante acted out by doing what most Western rebellious kids do; smoke, and curse, to hide his emotional baggage. The change is merely in the tone set by the majority and the stereotypes given to us, but in no way reflects anything that detrimental to change.

 

Japan has always had an abundance of sarcastic, snarky wisecrackers who cover up emotional baggage. If you look at most current-day Western video game characters they have a tendency to smoke a lot, and curse like a drunken sailor. Don't believe me? Bionic Commando.

Im pretty sure they took his smoking out because of fan backlash...but im not 100% on this.

Doesn't change the fact that Old Dante looks like he could be a rock star, while New Dante looks like Robert Pattinson after a battle with crack addiction.

That's still the OLD design. Have you seen the newer design where his facial texture has drastically changed?

Here's the old one.

Here's the new one.

 

It looks a lot less like the developer now. And now it looks like half of us on these forums. Except not me, I look like Johnny Depp from A Secret Window.

We don't know that yet.

 

Personally I think the whole 'lol hes emo' people are just jumping on a bandwagon without putting rational thought into something. They probably haven't seen most of the new trailers and go on what other people say.

 

Also, LIIIIIIIGHT


New Dante isn't as lighthearted and fun-loving as Old Dante, that's pretty much a fact.

Dante's in an opera house, so he knows to ham up his acting. It's goofy and he knows it. What would New Dante do? Probably what he always does.


isnt new dante just starting out? Hes probably not as strong as old dante so he cant take things as a joke, as he gets older im sure he will
