Wait, how do you pronounce Dante? i thought it WAS with the "O" sound. Like "Octagon".

The proper pronunciation is DAHN-tay

I used it before I saw anyone use it a year ago, but it's NOT a stretch at all.

"My name is Dante" line in the first trailer pissed a lot of people off. No, you are not Dante, you flipping drug addled ****bag.

Like Dan from street fighter? Danny?

But they pronounce it as DAWN-tay in 3 and 4.
