How would YOU redesign Dante to appeal to western audiences?

I would not redesign him to appeal to people with weird taste.

I would redesign him now but I don't know how to upload pics to the internet.

Surprised no one mention any bald space marines. Though if there is one thing that is considered more "western," it's apparently a more "realistic, gritty" look. This is probably more from a marketing executive standpoint and we all know how completely right they can be.

Pretty sure "western" is short hand for "westerners won't call each other weaboos for liking it".

Basically, yeah.

That's literally the only reason why terms like WRPG and JRPG exist and why there is such a dispute over them.


I feel those often come down to the fundamentals. Fallout 3 and Oblivion have little in common with Final Fantasy XIII and Shin Megami Tensei (Persona). JRPG's and WRPG's actually have identifiable gameplay differences.

This is more a question of design.


The problem with that is WRPG and JRPG really only denotes which region they are made from, which in the end doesn't really mean much because SMT plays much differently from Final Fantasy which plays very differently from Pokemon, just as Fallout 3 plays differently from Oblivion which plays differently from Mass Effect.

The W/J distinction has really done nothing but to cause the genre, which was already fragmented as it is due to its very nature, to become even moreso over the years, resulting in arguments that are the very example of narcissism over small differences.

Then your in luck, the real full retail version has him in a white wig. Remember that scene?

**** the western audience.

This will appeal to hardcore punk rock crowd. Dante should have looked like this:

I thought the DMC4 Dante looked pretty "western" in design (whatever that means) besides his hair being white and the chaps.
