how do they justify so few weapons?

Aren't sequels supposed to expand upon their predecessors? The DMC series is known for their large, unique weapon selection.

This is a reboot. It's not fair to compare it to the old games.

The DMC series is also four games of built up weapons. What they have is fine.

They also have a different set of weapons every game, aside from the pistols, shotgun, and Rebellion.

2 Angel Weapons.
2 Devil Weapons
1 Human Weapons
3 Guns.

6 Weapons isnt that bad.
Compared to 3's four and 4 had about the same amount.
(Lucifer, Gilgamesh, Rebellion, E&I, Shotgun, Pandora's. That was all of em right? Well I guess you could add Yamato.)

The weapons are decent, both quality and quantity. However, they seriously lack style and individuality. E&I turned into generic, tribal-inspired handguns. Osiris is just a blue death scythe. The axe is just, a red axe. The fist weapon is a pair of cartoony, hulk hands. The shuriken-esque weapon has nothing unique aside it's awesome AOE moveset. I could go on but you get the meaning.

For a game that sets visual style as one of its main objectives, it's failing pretty hard at the weapon section.
