I'm looking forward to playing this origin story.

Dear TC,

I'm glad you've finally decided to get around to playing DMC3. It's an awesome game. Not sure what your talking about with damage control or PR, though...
Oh, well. Happy gaming!

Sincerely,
Fifi

^ This.


That!

Actually, he's never used the word reboot or prequel. He said it was an origin story and now is saying it's a rebirth of Dante. Link me to an article if I'm wrong.


You are right. Now people interviewing have used the word reboot and while he did not correct them he used the word rebirth. Capcom has used the term reboot. I am wondering if they are using it interchangeably.

Nah, Ithink their just using whatever name will gain them the most sales. They'll just dance around the issue all day and keep changing it whenever the situation calls for a different name.

But he has used the words that this does not adhere to the existing canon and is an alternate universe.

But we already saw the origin story in 3, and it was called Dante's Awakening. Until they come out with a straight answer I'd say this really is a reboot.

True, but again, he's very careful in not using the term "alternate universe" either. It's like he's afraid of labeling it as "reboot" or "alternate timeline". He says that it will not adhere to the existing canon, but draw heavily from it. It's like he's doing mental jiujitsu with the selective terms he's using. Sort of like a politician.

Ejshin, so true. I think they are afraid to tell it like it is. We have to guess.

"A parallel universe or alternative reality... In dark fantasy or horror the parallel world is often..."

"there’s an explanation inside Dengeki PlayStation. The magazine explains Ninja Theory’s game takes place in parallel world."

Though yeah, it could very well be NOT Tameem who said that :D:D

True. It's a bit ridiculous at times.



>Not an origin story.
Depends how you approach it. It is an origin story of how Dante opened up his office and it is an origin story of how Dante awakened his demonic powers(DT). I understand what you mean, but it is an origin story depending on the point of view.
