How would 2D-version of Devil May Cry play?

#1Orange00Posted 7/11/2014 4:10:38 AM
I used to think DMC would have been similar to castlevania or older ninja gaiden if it came back in the days of 2 dimensionality.

but stylistic combat is the thing DMC is known for, hell, it pretty much invented the genre. So castlevania's platforming or ninja gaiden's speedrunning wouldn't do justice. I think the game should resemble 2D fighting games as far as movesets go, otherwise it could follow old castlevania formula. As long as the emphasis is in the fighting enemies.

megaman zero series and ZX fill that void for me.

I actually brainstormed a game that mixes both Devil May Cry and Mega Man X's gameplay and worked together with a programmer for a few months to build it.

We canceled it because it was too much work for two people (failed to get a background artist interested...).
Maybe next time.

Megaman zero works yea. Maybe if you could chain few more hits and do some actual aerial combat..

goldsickle, if you decide to resume some day, i might be able to do some graphical stuff, depending on artstyle of course ;)

years ago, I was actually gonna make a DMC fangame on NES standards. I was thinking something very simple ninja gaiden style gameplay.. But I'm no programmer and my interests are in graphics design.

I plan on redoing all the sprites from scratch.

Maybe with the same complexity as Chronicles of Mystara or that one AvP sidescroller game.

A 2-D DMC could be pretty cool, but one needs to think of what systems you would want to add.
