Devil May Cry 5 Dante

Capcom is hard at work on Devil May Cry 5, with the game currently slated for release early next year. While there’s still a lot of information to be revealed on the game, we’ve just received some more thanks to the latest Capcom Confidential podcast.

A member of ResetEra translated the podcast and offered the gist of it for everyone to check out out. There are some great nuggets of information here, such as information on character design, Nero’s van and hyping up the game’s next trailer. The following is all the information:

  • Wilson made all base models for monsters and bosses
  • Then they outsourced high-poly 3D models
  • When they got high-poly models back they did a test scene. Put all the high-poly models next to each other.
  • Matt mentions Goliath being one of them (the big horn dude in the trailer).
  • All of the bosses (and characters) were in that scene as well and Matt makes a remark about how bosses got bigger and bigger size wise. They say the scale is incredible.
  • Alex works under Daigo Ikeno. He says it’s great because Ikeno doesn’t give him too much feedback on his work so he has a lot of freedom.
  • One word Ikeno uses a lot apparently is “slick”. Alex says early on Ikeno looked at his works and told him to make it more slick and Alex was wondering what the hell that means (lol). Tho he says he understands now.
  • Alex worked on Nero’s van for a whole year.
  • They describe van as a character not a vehicle. As in it was made by people that made the character models cause the environment modelers said it was a character so the character designers had to work on it not them lol
  • They stress that there are a lot of details in the van.
  • Alex says the game was so visually impressive that he often asked Nagaki (Yumei Nagaki?) “are we gonna tone this down?” and he would say “no, that’s in the game”
  • They are very strict on designs looking realistic. If a design didn’t seem realistic enough they would go back to it until it was realistic enough.
  • Wilson’s favorite Capcom game is Dragon’s Dogma. He has never played a DMC game before.
  • Alex has played DMC4 and Berial fight is his favorite moment in the game.
  • Yuichiro Hiraki from DMC1 and DMC4 is back and works on DMC5 animations.
  • Alex was talking about how impressive Berial was in DMC4 with the fires and destroying houses which is when Matt says how Alex and the team have made the Goliath such an impressive boss in the DMC5 and how Goliath (as we saw in the trailer) will destroy a giant cathedral.
  • Matt also says Goliath should be considered an equivalent to Berial. Not from the point of when will you fight it in the story, but the actual design and the fight having great environment interactivity.
  • Matt mentions how the different animal faces on Goliath look great and give it a unique design.
  • They hyping up the next trailer. Saying it’s gonna be amazing.
  • Nero’s accessories (like his bracelet) are hand designed and not scanned. Wilson was the person who designed those.
  • The Devil May Cry blue neon sign is actually Alex’ handwriting. He was surprised to see it in the trailer. Matt and Pete didn’t even know it was his handwriting so they were surprised in the podcast lol
  • The neon sign was at first pink but then for some reason they decided to make it blue. (even Alex wasn’t sure why lol)
  • Alex wrote 40 different versions of Devil May Cry and made 40 different versions of neon signs (he called them mini-trailers) for the trailer (holy shit!)
  • Alex added a lot of details to the van such a bunch of references to Osaka.
  • Also there stickers on the van like the name of famous racers on the windows. Those belong to Nico.
  • Alex also designed Nico’s tattoos.

Devil May Cry 5 is in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. While an official release date hasn’t been revealed yet, it is expected to launch in the Spring of 2019.

Google engineers successfully hacked the PS Portal to run emulated PSP games

After about a month of work, a couple of Google employees have successfully hacked the PS Portal, PlayStation’s handheld streaming solution. Their project is not set for public release anytime soon, but the hack is purely software-based, eliminating the need for hardware exploitation.

Andy Nguyen, a cloud vulnerability researcher, and Calle Svensson, a security engineer, shared their latest project on Twitter. They successfully ran the PSP emulator PPSSPP on the PS Portal. They presented the 2005 PSP classic Grand Theft Auto: Liberty Stories.

As a wireless streaming device, the idea of playing games on the PS Portal without a PS5 providing the power was considered impossible. It’s quite surprising how quickly Nguyen and Svensson have overcome this initial hurdle. It remains to be seen where their efforts will take them, but we will definitely keep an eye on their progress. Nguyen expressed that there is still a lot of work left to do.

Lady Gaga, also known as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, has teased an upcoming collaboration with Fortnite Festival set to be unveiled soon. More pertinent to our specific attention to detail, Gaga has also admitted to a mistake made around four years ago, indicating her keen awareness of the franchise’s significant value.

Gaga shared a mesmerizing picture of her character in Fortnite and also retweeted a post from 2019 where she asked her fans, “What’s fortnight?”. She finally got the chance to correctly spell the title of the game, allowing us to breathe a sigh of relief after waiting anxiously.

Lady Gaga will be teaming up with other top celebrities to maximize their presence on the Fortnite platform. Travis Scott once hosted a live concert in Battle Royale a couple of years ago, while the Weeknd just premiered the music video for the song “Popular” at the Fortnite Festival.

Reflecting on Street Fighter 5’s tumultuous launch, Capcom looks back eight years later

For those who may not recall, nearly eight years ago today, Street Fighter 5 was released in 2016 in a rather incomplete state. The content available was impressive initially, but the limited number of characters and lack of single-player game modes stood out. Capcom expresses regret for the entire situation, offering apologies years later for having “betrayed” players’ expectations.

On SF5’s eighth anniversary, the developers must be feeling nostalgic. They recently posted a Japanese-language tweet looking back on the mistakes made and the challenges that were eventually overcome. The number of playable characters has grown to 45, and the game has seen various enhancements, including the introduction of new abilities such as V Skills/Trigger II and V Shift. Even now, hundreds of thousands of players still choose to play this game instead of the newer Street Fighter 6.
Have you had the chance to try out Street Fighter 5 since it was first released? What do you recall about the game’s reception? Take a trip down memory lane in the comments section below.
