Whilst it was once debatable with sequence lovers from the instant it was once introduced, DmC: Satan Might Cry was once in large part well-received via critics. Sure evaluate ratings are not the one beacon of fine fortune for the divisive access within the hack ‘n’ slash franchise, on the other hand, as Hideaki Itsuno, the director of a couple of Satan Might Cry titles, would really like a sequel.
In keeping with a file from USGamer, Itsuno–who’s labored additionally labored on a couple of different Capcom video games together with Energy Stone, Capcom Vs. SNK 2, and Dragon’s Dogma–would don’t have any drawback with a DmC 2. However there is a catch: for Itsuno, British developer Ninja Idea must be at the undertaking once more. In a different way, as Capcom manufacturer Matt Walker added, “It would not be DmC with out Ninja Idea.”
“At the dev aspect we definitely sought after to and concept we might paintings with Ninja Idea once more to create a sequel to DmC, however that sadly did not get off the bottom,” stated Itsuno, who expressed passion in a sequel.
Walker agreed with the sentiment, announcing, “We might nonetheless love to peer a sequel, however we predict it completely must be made via Ninja Idea–so a lot of the fantastic taste and substance in that sport was once best imaginable as a result of they’ve this sort of knack for what is cool.”
Excluding DmC, Ninja Idea is maximum identified for creating motion video games comparable to Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, Heavenly Sword, and the critically-acclaimed Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice (which not too long ago made the leap to Nintendo Transfer). Ninja Idea was once obtained via Microsoft and folded into the corporate’s Xbox Recreation Studios in 2018, which means if a DmC sequel had been to occur, it might require Microsoft’s blessing to be multiplatform or finally end up an Xbox and PC unique.
In our DmC: Definitive Version evaluate, we stated that the “a lot of tweaks and upgrades of DmC: Satan Might Cry Definitive Version have made a sport that is not only a higher model of DmC, however a bonafide hack ‘n’ slash vintage.”
Whilst a DmC 2 is probably not within the works any time quickly, lovers of the motion franchise not too long ago were given Satan Might Cry five to tide them over, which we awarded a nine/10.
