How would YOU redesign Dante to appeal to western audiences?

Ok, sooooo devil trigger time?

I'm at a bit of a loss over how to tackle it, so i went and looked up some art related to the divine comedy and...uh, yikes?

Anyway yeah, Devil Trigger. I don't even know where to begin with this, so i figured i should just get something on paper, so to speak and just go from there.

i think dmc3-style devil trigger would suit your style. So go look some shin megami designs :)

some sparda resemblance is important, you know the kind of insect devil look.

That's where the digitech feet and finger-sword comes from actually.

Kazuma Kaneko is one of my greatest muses.

You wanna appeal to the "western audience", the look won't matter, just take all his melee weapons, replace them with guns, make it a FPS, add multiplayer and done.

Oh and replace demons with zombies.
Call it: "DmC: Duty may Call."

Boom insta-hit, 13 yr olds everywhere will be screaming high-pitch profanities at everyone online before you know it.

If I recall correctly the reason this whole reboot thing was because the game wasn't selling as much as shooters anyways, right?

So much cynicism in this thread... :(

Not that I'm not right there with you, but I like concept art more than calling out corporations on their BS.

Just curious, should I do Vergil and Mundus in the vein of my Dante designs as well?
