It wasn't a troll at all... It's apparent this Dante is still in his youth and tries to reject the thought of ever having white hair/being a demon. He later comes to terms with it when he unlocks his full potential.
Sadly it was spoiled to me on this board before release.
Yeah NT is definitly showing the middle finger to detractors (no biggie, those extremists could never be won over in 'a million years') and I didn't believe it was real at first but they did put a fat neckbeard loser with a 5 shirt to troll even more.
I didn't pick sides until late... but now I just hope the NT gambit sticks and those QQing fanboys get karma back at them.
