Yes, we will keep all these things in mind when it comes to permanetly banning someone for a leak. We are aware of development changes and such. Really the intent of the threat of permanent ban is to prevent intentionally false leaks, hence the word "hoax" in our statement.
Why wouldn't it be unveiled at E3 then? What's so major in between PSX and E3 that it warrants not being on either of them? Doesn't make a whole lot of sense.
Either this game gets unveiled in 2017 or it misses it and is unveiled at E3 2018 instead. Then again it's Capcom so you never really know. That's the type of stuff I wouldn't personally bet my account on.
Honestly something has to give either it’s announced before the end of this year or at E3 next year. Can’t see where and why they would announce it inbetween as Capcom has revealed all their major games at big events.
DMC2 is way, waaaay worse. I'll take ten dice games over the tank, chopper, giant fish or giant moth bosses, or most of the puzzles in that game.
And yes, there is. That comment was as silly as every "DmC is worse than DMC2 and worse than cancer" comment I've read. A good game with flaws isn't on the same level or worse than a complete mess of a game that couldn't even get basic stuff like Stingers or Hightime right, that almost tanked the franchise's trajectory, cost us Kamiya, and put the canon into this weird quantum state.
Like I said, my memory of it isn't as fresh as it was. The dice stuff stuck out for me more than anything DMC2 ever did, but I do admit I'd have to replay it to see if it feels as bad as or worse than DMC4. As far as what you mention from the moves in DMC2, I remember the gameplay being really close to DMC1 than DMC3, so maybe you just feel sour on it because you played 3 first?
DMC2, the entire game, is complete trash from beginning to end. Story, gameplay, level design, art (apart from Dante), everything is trash. It's the worst game I've ever played (and I played it enough to get all the achievements) and it does not belong in the same universe as any of the other games in the series.
I respect your opinion, but I honestly do not remember the game being "complete trash", so I'll just agree to disagree. And that doesn't mean it can't be better than DMC4. One of the things I do recall from DMC2 is the characters sharing levels for the most part, but unlike DMC4, playing the game to its end with one character felt like playing a whole game, whereas DMC4 felt like it was stretching its world to the absolute limit just to feature 20 or so levels.
The OP approached us asking to post this information on ResetEra and we found enough reason to allow it. We'd like to make it clear that this is not an endorsement. The staff cannot verify that all the contents of this leak are accurate. The OP has accepted full responsibility for posting this material and if it turns out to be a hoax they have agreed to take a permanent ban.
Sorry but Frameworks MT is still a last-gen engine even if they heavily modify it. It doesn't have any of the next-gen features Panta Rhei engine has. If they want the return of DMC engine in full glory, it has to be with a splendid presentation.
