Gamescom 2012: DmC: Devil May Cry to get a sequel?

DmC: Devil May Cry could be the start of a new adventure for Dante and his sibling

The dust has barely settled since Capcom released a new trailer for DmC: Devil May Cry - now the game's producer as hinted at the possibility of a new franchise

Speaking at Gamescom earlier today, the game's producer, Alex Jones, said: “Yeah, the story is Dante kind of finding his purpose. He’s on the margins of society at the start and he’s just kind of surviving, and then Vergil finds him.

“At first, just by offering him an opportunity for revenge, Dante then at least has some sort of a goal. As he moves deeper into the story he becomes more connected with the larger struggle it’s about him finding his place in the world.”

“Yeah, hopefully ‘balletic awesome shit’ will be one of their few takeaways from the game,” he continued.

“For the story, I hope it’s a satisfying story that resolves itself and potentially leaves people wanting to find out more about this world and what could come next.

“But yeah awesome balletic ass-kicking was one of the main objectives.”

Earlier this week, Capcom released a new trailer for DmC: Devil May Cry, below, at Gamescom, which confirmed that Dante’s twin brother Virgil will make a comeback to the popular series.

Virgil, who previously appeared in Devil May Cry and Dante’s Awakening, enlists the help of his brother to aid him in his quest to vanquish an evil demon lord.

They’ll be joined by a new character named Kat, a powerful medium who has the ability to see into the demon realm, Limbo.

The title, developed by Ninja Theory, will be available for the PS3 and Xbox 360 from January next year, although
