Fans fix DmC's Dante, make him look worse

Surprise, surprise. The backlash over DmC's "new" Dante has reached its inevitable conclusion, with fans taking it upon themselves to play designer and give the protagonist's controversial appearance a brand new makeover. The only trouble is ... I can't see what this "new new" Dante has done to look any better.

The best part of this professional design document is the bit that says, "Black/skunk hair OK to keep," as if the fanbase sat down to have hard think about things, and decided it would allow Ninja Theory to use one of its ideas. That's very big of you, guys! 

We also have, "No red coat? No Dante!" But wait, wasn't his coat red in the trailer? No, apparently it was burgundy, which is ENTIRELY THE WRONG COLOR YOU IDIOT! Fortunately, these important blueprints have fixed the problem and we can now confirm that what you're looking at is, indeed, Dante. 

Otherwise, aside from a few thoroughly pointless things like a patch and a pendant, they haven't really don't anything to improve the character. Instead, he kind of looks worse, like a rejected Final Fantasy character. If that's what the fans want, I think it's best we leave it to the experts.

Seriously, the arrogance of some fanbases ...

[Update: I have been contacted by the artist of this picture, who calls herself Krazy Kitsune, to be informed that this was her attempt at a "middle ground" blending of old and new Dante. I was misinterpreted some of the intent of the drawing, which was more a reconciliatory effort than an attempt to tell Ninja Theory what to do. So, sorry to Kitsune for getting the intent wrong, although the whole "fan redesign" thing still gets my goat.]

Even more characters in that classic Bubble Bobble style

Well, my Monday is off to a good start. Yours will be too, if you liked Paul Robertson's Taito-style pixel art series. It continues with another hundred characters, viewable below. Without a doubt, my favorite this time around is the Cacodemon from Doom. It looks so friendly! Who's yours? 100 Taito style sprites part 3 [Paul Robertson]more

All characters should be redone in the style of Bubble Bobble for maximum cuteness

Hamza and I are huge fans of Paul Robertson's pixel art and animation, though the same could be said of everyone here at Destructoid, I suspect. He's one of the best. Trips to Robertson's blog are always a treat, albeit for d...more
