It was small concession for fans who really cared what he looked like, but now we're getting three more costumes that should placate a few more fans.
They'll be available for purchase (lol) on January 30th, and you can view them all in our lovely gallery. It kind of ruins the joke they played about his old style, but hey, it works for me.
As I said in my 100% Retrospective, I enjoyed the new DmC, despite the fact that it had a number of shortcomings that held it back from greatness.
All I know is that I'm playing the game wholly as the costume in the header from now on (the other two costumes I outright don't like), and I'm pretty damn excited.
