I'm trying to expect an E3 reveal but at this point with the frenzy in the fanbase and the leaks we've already gotten, they may as well move the reveal to TGA if it isn't already scheduled. I don't think people could handle another seven month wait.
We can handle it, but it won't be the same. If they reveal it this month, they can get away with a short trailer that shows nothing and only says "DMC V IS BEING MADE!!!!", but waiting until E3 when we already have close to 100 pages of discussion on it to reveal it as if it was a huge surprise won't cut it. If they want to save it for E3 anyway, they should probably get a gameplay segment to show us after the reveal trailer.

After beating DmC, I played some Vergil in DMC3 and 4 to see how he compares gameplay-wise. But the thing which stuck out to me wasn't the gameplay, it was this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXJkge7JAGg

Am I the only one who thinks Capcom might as well hire the actor from The Room to voice Vergil? I can understand Dan is the iconic voice for Vergil, but by god, this is giving Altered Beast and Resident Evil 1 really good competition for worst acting in a video game ever.
Uh, Dan IS Vergil at this point. The voice acting for him fits the character to a T. Flawlessly.

Not sure what the hell that insecure gun-using abomination in DmC was but it was most definitely not Vergil.

Assuming Early 2019 release, announcing this in TGA would give it roughly 1 years of waiting time between now and launch.

I can wait one more year, but what would kill me is if we have to wait till E3 to see some gameplay.

2min trailer, 30 sec gameplay minimum.

This is only tangentially related, but does anyone have the fan-made image of the "Bayonetta is not _____, Bayonetta is ______" that was spoofing the DmC pre-release slides?

If Nolan North is really involved, I think they're probably taking the acting a little more seriously.

I definitely wouldn't replace the original voices, though. They're way too iconic at this point, more than the story, without a doubt. If they can't deliver too well on very emotional scenes, than give up on having emotional scenes at all in the series going forward, that's how important I think the voices are. I wouldn't refuse to play the game if they changed, but I really really hope they don't. At least for V, this is pretty much an IP revival, not just another sequel. This game must sell the idea that everything you loved about DMC is back, they can take more risks with 6 if they want.

Because I believe that a big factor in this game's sales will be nostalgia. People who played DMC way back then and are like "oh, shit, it's back, that's so cool! It looks and sounds like I remember it!", and that hype will also bring more people on board, hearing those cherished memories from old time fans. The last thing Capcom wants for this game's promotion is the people who care the most about the franchise saying "I'm not so sure about that".
Honestly it probably comes down to voice direction more than the actors. Voice acting in general has come a long way since the 90s.

I really, REALLY hope we get this by PSX. I'm so tired of waiting, dammit
I'd say the leaks make it more likely we'll see it early. Often times, companies will show things earlier than intended if they were leaked. So let's hope that's the case.

DMC is my favorite series, and we're in dire need of a sweet character action game this gen. So it needs to happen.

Old Sparda didn't looked like that he was a recolored Vergil with a monocle.
But yeah DmC designs (most of them) are yuck
Gimp Sparda is hilarious. I love that he's still alive too in that world and nobody bothers to try and rescue him.
Point is, the whole reason Dante and Vergil were special is because they're the sons of the legendary dark knight who kicked all kinds of demon ass from hell and back.

What's so special about the son of a gimp in a basement =_=

Finally sitting to play DMC1 this week. Some of those platforms are pissing me off. Dante seems to randomly decide which exact direction he will curve his jump/how far he will reach, holy crap.

So happy to see all the excitement for arguably one of the best gaming franchises of all time.

hey that's my tweet conversation

He also liked a tweet where I mentioned DMCV. I want to believe.

Haha ^^ I tried to search Geoff timeline since last Sunday to find something that might be related to DMCV, and that's all I found. Didn't see he liked a tweet of you mentioning DMCV though, but that's good to know.
Like I said, I don't put much stock into it since Geoff is a hype man, but I still want to believe too.
