Calling it

I'm sure we've all seen the desperate fanboy's who still to this day insist that Dante is younger and will grow into his white hair and suddenly stop being half angel and remember his mother.....but one thing really sticks to me

I read a thread a long while back (right after that first "WHAT IS YOUR NAME?" trailer was released) where someone theorized that this isn't actually Dante but some kid who was brainwashed into thinking he is Dante. (hence the WHAT IS YOUR NAME line over and over again coupled with the fact that his mind seemed to be in turmoil while fighting)

It really makes more sense to me so if this is going to be hastily tied into the original story to please fans it will probably be

A. This is some random half angel/devil kid that they named Dante and taught to fight in order to conjure of the legend of the original in peoples minds. Original Dante may have a last second Cameo to save the new kid but never officially say he is Dante.

B. This might be Dante's unofficial son since by DMC1 he was already getting mistaken for Sparda by people who knew Spared (Phantom) and he could have knocked up that angel Lucien Chick before disappearing forever in the demon world.

C. It is just an alternate Dimension and has zero to do with the original series. Get over it since it is different and not a change to the old character.

D. This is gonna be some M Night Shyamalan **** and it's all a head trip of a drugged up punk rocker. The game will have dramatic sequences where the demons your fighting flicker to being orderlies trying to pin you down and put a shot in your butt. The nasty witch boss fight that was pumping drugs into the drinks in the demo will be you murdering the nurse who gives you meds, and the bald guy is just the head of the institution.

So seriously stop desperately attempting to say this is a younger Dante and stop complaining about the smaller things like him not knowing his mom or being part angel because it has already been established that he is a different Dante

Other complaints could be valid like the changes to the combat system, the sudden departure from the previous style, or the over abundance of F-bombs.

But just accept that this is a different Dante....not a replacement....just something different. Makes his a little more likable.

If they never make another game with the original Dante, then yes, this is a replacement.

But at this point do we want them to go back?

Look at star wars...we all wanted more and now no matter how hard we scrub we can't get the prequels off our skin.

If they do never revisit the original then just look at it as complete and this as something different.

Yeah, because the prequels are the worst part of the series.

Yeah, thing is, this is the prequel trilogy; it's got the name, it's got some a few references that link it, but doesn't really have what made the original so good and everything it's tried to do better thus far as ended up looking worse.

You know I heard in an interview somewhere that anakin being a child was his kids idea and he was bouncing ideas off them to see what appealed to a younger demographic when writing the prequels. (might have been the daily show.)

Difference is this isn't part of the main story, it can get away with doing things different without tarnishing the classic

Prequels ruined the force (lol midochlorians), jedi (wait their psychic police generals and not an order of monks?), classic characters (how the **** was yoda and obi won so stupid?)

Even if this series is abysmally bad....it has nothing to do with classic Dante...and fans can find solace in that.

When were the Jedi ever monks? In the first movie they were supposed to be a group of warriors that Akain and Obi-Wan joined on the fly together as teens to fight in the clone wars.
