Ninja Theory’s Devil May Cry may be set in an alternate universe
Two different canons for the Devil May Cry series
Looks like Capcom is spending too much time with Marvel and has taken a page from Marvel’s Ultimate Universe. Devil May Cry’s upcoming reboot, which is being developed by Ninja Theory, may not be a proper reboot after all, but an alternate universe incarnation of Dante, according to report from Siliconera.
This means that we might still see the games featuring the original incarnations of Dante and that take place in original canon. This might actually be good news for many, as the Dante’s new design has been met with negative reactions from many fans of the series.
The new Devil May Cry, officially title DmC: Devil May Cry, will feature a young Dante with shorter black hair who possesses both angelic and demonic powers. It is expected to be released in 2012 on PS3 and Xbox360
