Still a selling feature though.

>>520841045Naughty.

>>520840928It’s not “removing” anything, the remaster is the maniax chronicles edition that was only released in Japan for PS2, an update to the version we got (already the 2nd version), which has raidou from the Devil Summoner series in place of Dante.

>>520840928>OF THE ORIGINAL GAMEnopedante was included in the maniax version, and replaced by raidou in the chronicle versionthe remaster is a remaster of the chronicle edition, and the maniax content is the dlc

>>520840928Blame Capcom for wanting more money now that DMC is one of their most popular IPs

That sticker was on the PAL cover. Going in blind it was just a really pleasant surprise to see his inclusion

>>520841163Are there and substantial differences between the two, or is it just a model swap and different dialogue?

>>520841163So is the Amala labyrinth dlc too?

>>520841359Raidou has pierce but the remaster gives it to Dante.

>>520841359Dante takes 0 damage from jumping off the mantra building. His cutscenes are also a lot more badass. Moveset-wise they're pretty similar, though Raidou used to have an edge because he could learn a skill that gave him Pierce. Dante now also gets pierce as part of Son's Oath. That + Rebellion making him a crit machine means he's a beast even against Lucifer.

>>520841359largely model and dialog swap, but raidou got pierce and dante didntthat really only matters for the lucifer fight, which is on ONE ending, but people are going to bitchfit so whateverdante gets pierce here too so eh

>>520841432No, it was in chronicle too

>>520841570> which is on ONE endingYou mean the only ending that fucking matters

What are we talking about here?

>>520842936you retards act like true demon end is literally the only ending in the gameit's not, faggot

>>520843054The SMT: Nocturne remaster won't have Dante in it initially similarly to the original japanese release

So will Raidou not be in this at all?

>>520843662Raidou is in the base game, you can switch him with Dante if you shell out ten bucks

>>520843662Raidou is in the base remaster.

>>520843525Somebody should edit this to say "No Longer Featuring Dante from the Devil May Cry Series".

I can't believe snoys are defending this decision. Get the fuck off my board you tourists.

>>520843543you're not locked out of the kalpas if you don't do TDE.

>>520843805?????? No it should be for $9.99

>>520843969Whats the point of doing the kalpas if you aren't going for TDE? Why would anyone not want to go for TDE?

>>520844051>Why would anyone not want to go for TDE?In case they want to actually revive their friends instead of act like an edgy wannabe demon?Like it's been said before, TDE is NOT the only ending in the game.

>>520844124Most other companies will include something extra in their remasters too. Even if it is the bare fucking minimum of "new content"Atlus literally removes old content and charges you for it

>>520844051I prefer TDE myself, but the only new content you get that way is the Lucifer fight and Pierce. Saying that Kalpas are locked behind TDE is not true.

>>520841162>>520841163It's reselling old content, there's no excuse.>>520844124Didn't Activision double-dip for the DLC for one of the CoD remasters?Not defending Atlus, if anything it makes them look worse to be compared to fucking Activision.

>>520844240this is a remaster of the chronicle edition, nothing from that has been removedthe maniax content is dlc when it wasn't before and you just had to buy the game if you wanted to play as dantehe even gets pierce to keep up with tde faggots so everyone can shut the fuck up

>>520844270I know they aren't literally locked behind TDE, but they directly contribute to it. Aren't you doing Lucifer's bidding by going and hunting down fiends and then exploring the labyrinth? Don't you fight Metatron because he's trying to stop you and Lucifer?

>>520844365Why are you defending shitty business practices? There is no excuse for locking something that was in the original western release behind a paywall. A TEN DOLLAR paywall just to get Dante. Hell, it was originally a fucking selling point for the game and it was on the GOD DAMN BOX

>>520844375You could just do it to grow your own power. Beating the Fiends and Metatron doesn't help Lucifer much - it just proves you're as strong as he needs you to be. But you don't need to go along with his plans either. It's just another means of increasing the power of the Demifiend.

>>520844321>It's reselling old content, there's no excuse.So is the rest of the remaster, your point?

>>520844365They are separating old content so they can nickel and dime you. Practically every remaster ever made bundles all of a game's content together, only particularly jewish companies like Atlus think it's okay to double dip and charge an extra fee for content that required no extra work.You are engaging in mental gymnastics to defend your Brand™.>>520844764Shut the fuck up drone.Why in the hell do you think it's okay for Atlus to charge $10 for an NPC swap, in a remaster? Why not have them both out of the box? There's no justification except greed. They think they can get away with it because they've already had insane levels of DLC for IV, IV:A, Persona 5, etc. They're devaluing the whole purpose of a remaster, especially given how lacking it is on features. Might as well just emulate.

So how are they gonna accomplish having both in the story? Is the Dante stuff just going to take place in a DLC dimension cut off from the real story? Imagine fighting both at once

>>520840928>HE WAS LITERALLY A SELLING FEATURE ON THE GOD DAMN BOX OF THE ORIGINAL GAMEDante is so non-important that they put the blurb about him on the back of the box and in a corner. In fact, he mattered so little in Nocturne that he was easily replaced by a completely different character. Either you're complaining about a game you've never played or you're a Europoor who got the shitty box art with the "Featuring Dante" meme stamp on the front.

>>520840928Blame JEWcom for wanting royalties.

>>520845397>Might as well just emulateThen do it faggot. Dante was never meant to be included in the first place.

It's very likely that Atlus West will make it free. They know what American and European fans expect from Nocturne Remastered. They've done similar DLC-mitigation before for Etrian Odyssey. We never get jewed as hard as the Japanese fans do.

>>520845182That IS the point, dingus. They're already charging for the remaster. You are paying Atlus for some small visual improvements and the ability to play the game on modern platforms. That is the value you're getting from their labor. What extra labor are they putting in for Dante that justifies the extra $10 charge? None. The content is no different from the rest of the game. They are deliberately treating it differently, because they think they can get away with charging for it. They're not charging extra for the kalpas, or the fiends, TDE, etc.>>520845715Very sad to see the SMT fanbase reduced to droning for Atlus's transparent greed. Then again you're probably new.

Y'all DMC niggas were begging capcom to sell you back Vergil for $20 for the third game in a row without any changes, yet $10 is too much? BAKA

>>520846049Nocturne is a much worse game without the maniax content, the vanilla version got a mixed reception. Maniax saved the game.

>>520846087Not droning, just mocking. Clearly nobody has ever played Nocturne.

>>520845397Remasters have always been pointless when remakes became a thing. "Oh boy now I have the PRIVILEGE to run this 15 year old game in 1080p to see all the flat textures and shitty animations in 60fps" Only corporate cucks buy remasters (the epitome of laziness) instead of making companies actually work for their money.

>>520845890I'm american and my box had the (frankly based) Dante sticker on it

>>520840928But he's playable now

>>520846316but the game being remastered isn't maniax, it's chronicledante wasn't in chronicleyou are asking for content that was not in the game that is being remastered

You get the exact same experience, there is nothing cut from the game, that DLC is to exchange Raidou for Dante, and it makes sense that you have to pay for it because DANTE IS NOT AN ATLUS CHARACTER.Fucking hell you people don't know anything

>>520846167oh my fucking god you retard. If you had two brain cells to rub together you could have maybe figured out I meant the original western release, which is the version literally all of us played.

>Selling DLC>For an HD remasterWhy? Even the Tales series that usually jew you out on DLC costumes included all the costumes for free in Vesperia remaster. I thought repackages of old games ere supposed to be '""definitive""

>>520846385What you are talking about is a port, not a remaster.

>>520846470Uh, except for maybe the fact that he was part of the ps2 version that we all already played

>>520846572Because in that PS2 version Atlus was doing some stuff with capcom, they added Dante to the game and Kaneko, the artist made the Devil Trigger designs for DMC 3.What do you think is going to happen now, in 2020 if you want to use that same character that belongs to Capcom? use your fucking brain.

My favorite part about all of this is that people were fine with not having Dante at all.

>>520846793The internet, especially this shithole, finds anything to complain about.And no matter what side you're on you're wrong. Always.There's no right answer or end with these people. The point is to bitch and moan just because.

>>520845142>17 year old gamePerfectly justified in pirating that shit at that point. The point of a remaster is to incentivize customers to spend money on old games rather than pirate.>>520846659You act like renewing a license is some fucking exorbitant expense. Should Square Enix have charged $10 for the fucking Tarzan world in KH1.5 HD because they had to renegotiate the license from the Edgar Rice Burroughs estate?

>>520846175see >>520846087You're confusing the initial game development labor Atlus initially put into Nocturne with the labor Atlus is putting into the remaster. They hope you can't tell the difference, and are double dipping. Dante is not a new addition to the game, he is no different from the rest of the content. Other remasters understand this and bundle all the content together without trying to nickle and dime you. And when remasters do have DLC it's brand-new content.>>520846186>anyone who criticizes my precious brand must not be a fan!>>520846219Baseless speculation meant to damage control for Atlus.Shameless DLC is not new for Atlus.>>520846385With remasters you pay for convenience, which Atlus fucked up.

>>520846959>anyone who criticizes my precious brand must not be a fan!

>>520840928>HE WAS LITERALLY A SELLING FEATURE ON THE GOD DAMN BOX OF THE ORIGINAL GAMETechnically Atlus had nothing to do with that, Ghostlight did that on their own.

>>520846959>Baseless speculationYeah I'm sure they just hit Capcom up and they said "sure dude use it for free we don't give a shit"You're the dumbest fucker alive, I wouldn't trust you running a bath.

is there a scummier dev/publisher in current year than fatlus"being stuck in the PS2 days" was supposed to be a compliment for their game design not how they sell stuff

>>520847071There's nothing stopping Atlus from paying the licensing costs themselves and not shifting the costs onto the consumer.

>>520846436And is that so outlandish? It's as if the DMC HD collection included vanilla DMC3 and you had to purchase the costumes and Vergil mode to get the Special Edition

feels good to not be retarded

>>520847237You have to be fucking kidding me, you can't be this dense.

>>520847237Atlus is a company, not your friend.

>>520847237In most license renewals, they pay an upfront fee and maybe a little percetage of overall profits. The DLC move probably nets both companies more money, and Atlus was perfectly fine with t=it because they knew their reputation wouldn't be tarnished and people would still buy it because Dante is a popular character and a hot selling point for this game most normies never played. Capcom knows if they publicly did this shit they would face massive backlash like SFxT on disc DLC.

I was always under the impression that Rad guy was in the original nip version of the game as just an enemy, and Dante replaced him while also being recruitable. Seems im wrong but isnt it kind of weird to recruit a full human? Arent your party members SUPPOSED to be demons?

>>5208477051. Raidou replaced Dante in the third version of Nocturne. The original has nobody, and no Labyrinth of Amala.2. Megami Tensei traditionally had at least one second human party member, the Heroine, who would join your party. This is the case in basically every game before Nocturne.

>>520847005Oh, did you fuck up your NO U greentext? Wanna try again?>>520847071You legitimately have no evidence for what you're saying. You are, again, engaging in damage control, because you're a brand warrior.There's plenty of ways Atlus could have handled the licensing costs without charging a $10 fee. Either you don't know or you don't remember that the original deal was a collaboration, Dante appeared in Nocturne and Kaneko made the devil trigger designs for DMC3. We don't even know the nature of the contract beyond that. Was Capcom getting a cut of every digital sale on PS3? We don't know, because, again, it's baseless speculation meant purely to defend Atlus with the power of wishful thinking.As >>520847237, even in the worst case scenario, they could have just burdened the fee. A remaster is already almost pure profit.>>520847545The irony of saying that while trying to defend their greed. So close yet so far.>>520847782This is just pure drone logic, why even reply to that guy? You're arguing just as much as he is. Stop your holier-than-thou garbage.

>>520847643Right, Atlus could've negotiated a contract that would include Dante in the base game but that would've eaten into their potential profits.

>>520847071Surely Atlus could give Capcom's royalties from the money they get from the base game that they're definitely charging $60 for?

>>520840928It's funny. DMC DLC is making all the faggots come out of the woodworks and show show dumb they are.

>>520848080>Oh, did you fuck up your NO U greentext? Wanna try again?

>>520848064>2. Megami Tensei traditionally had at least one second human party member, the Heroine, who would join your party. This is the case in basically every game before Nocturne.You also had multiple human recruits in SMT II, who were functionally the same as demons but didn't cost MAG.

Reminder that Raidou has pierce and Dante doesn't. OP is actually upset about Nocturne having MORE content and he wants the inferior guest character.

>>520848135No it's showing how many mindless drones have infested the SMT fanbase. It was only a matter of time I guess, Persona's popularity acted as a gateway and IV was already full of DLC so people became conditioned to it.

>>520848242Doesn't he have pierce in the remaster now?

>>520848250they're giving donte pierce in the remaster

>>520848064Alright, thanks

>>520848250>so people became conditioned to itThey're not interested in the Dante DLC tho

>>520848091Unfortunately yes, Atlus has no shame. It is what it is.Is there any other examples of a remaster getting paid DLC (Not a remake or a reboot, a straight up HD port with DLC)? I don't know if there a precedent for this. If not, its a very interesting choice.

I didn't know Nocturne was guaranteed to sell millions of copies to justify covering all the license costs to have Dante in the base game.Just enjoy the game bro, it's all on us.

who /drone/ here

>>520848198And you could fuse humans with demons for unexpected results.SMT1&2 are kind of fucked up.

Hope all the drones ITT will be happy when SMT V is a carved up monstrosity of monetization. IV was bad enough.Atlus will only get worse, not better, on this.

>>520848412Literally Call of Duty.Atlus and Activision are the only companies shameless enough to pull this, says a lot.

In the last Atlus (((West))) user survey I actually encouraged as much DLC as I could.I would like to think I was a small part of a larger voice. DLChads rise up on the poorfags.

>>520848518I'd agree with you if it was something like base Nocturne and the DLC contained all the Maniax/Chronicles content. I'd be fucking livid.As it stands it's just petty complaining about a side DLC that has to cover for Licensing costs.In a game that's niche to begin with.

>>520848518Nobody bought IV's DLC

>>520848412The 3DS version of Radiant Historia (another Atlus property) had DLC. Amongst other things, they sold the old portraits as a DLC pack.

>>520848135Suppose somebody doesn't give a shit about Raidou, but just wants Dante, because that's what they played back in 2005. They now have to pay $10 extra.

>>520840928Day 1 buy, day 1 dlc

>>520846667Kamiya missed his chance.He had an opportunity with Project X Zone 2 featuring Dante and got asked for Bayonetta in, but refused because he wanted more control over a crossover.He said it was the wrong move, in restrospect.

>>520848756They're not getting what they played back in 2005.

>>520840928It’s better to pay for Dante as a DLC than buy the game twice like how it was originally.

>>520848756Then emulate the original

>>520841119I doubt he will get any voice lines and probably re use voice clips from DMC1 before Reuben was Dante.

>>520840928why do people still buy games when devs treat you like thisstart pirating games, its more ethical

>>520848756Play the PS2 game.This is a remaster of the version he didn't play, so it would be dumb to expect it to be the same as his.

It’s likely to cover the cost of licensing Dante again. Though this IS Atlus so I can’t be too sure.

>>520846107literal false equivalency, this is like if capcom sold vergil as DLC in the HD remaster even though he was unlockable on ps2

>>520849726Nonsense, Square still owns those characters whereas Atlus needs to license Dante for this. They had this exact problem before, which is why Chronicles I think it was called has Raidou instead. If anything I'd say blame capcom, they likely want a slice of the pie if their IP is involved in any way.

>>520849498From what ive seen, the SMT4 games sort of have human party members but they're some sort of partner seperate form your 4 man party that you cant control, usually implied to be running a demon party of their own.

>>520849824This isn't Maniax or Chronicles. There isn't anything preventing them from including him aside from costs.>>520849825I mean the HD version without DLC.

>>520849940>its OK when nintendo does it

>>520850090>it's okay when my shitty analogy doesn't work

It's common as fuck to ports or rereleases remove licensed characters.But in this case you are literally losing fuck all besides a different skin.

>>520849726It's more like reskinning Sephirtoh into a Xemnas fight in KH1FM, then selling DLC that turns it back into Sephiroth.

>>520850030>just give it to me for free broPirate it then

>>520849940>yeah, it's almost like that...But they didn't do that. What they did was lock the ability to trade other gen 2 and 3 mons to FRLG behind completing the game. Like they ALWAYS do. You can still trade gen 1 mons between FRLG games before you beat it.

>>520849983KH has been reiterating the same game since the original PS2 game

>>520840928>smart>buy game>enjoy game for 15 years>autistic>game comes out at higher resolution>buy game again>pay more for content that was already in the original

>>520849952This has already been addressed. Atlus could have taken the brunt of the licensing expenses and negotiated for his inclusion without having the player pay extra.

>>520846337>I'M POORthe argument that is only made by people with poor economic skills, people who don't want to be jewed aren't poor they just don't want to be jewed, the opinion that you are poor for not buying something is the reason most people will remain poor their entire life, woman I know (single mother also) when she got her stimulus check she went on vacation with her kids and bought them new tablets and a phone for the oldest, she also still owes over 100$ to my sisters for babysitting her kids, having things doesn't make you rich, having money set aside so you don't go broke at the first sign of an issue is being rich.

>>520840928lol at all the retards crying about dante.-atlus doesn't own dante-atlus gets temporary timed rights to sell the game with content they don't own-once that time period is over, they lose the rights and have to de-list the content-by making dante dlc only, they don't have to delist nocturne on every platform 5 years from now, just the dante dlc unless they renew the license ($)this is best case scenario. first thing that comes to mind is soul calibur 4. by default the game shipped with starwars characters and now they can't even resell the game digitally anymore. its just gone forever.

>>520850483The design was a commission piece specifically for DMC. Dante by contrast is the face of the DMC franchise and one of Capcom's most recognizable icons.You might have had a point if Jack Frost had been in DMC3 and got reused, not so much here.

>>520850860I recall still being able to buy PS2 Nocturne with Dante on ps3's PSN a few years back. I think its pretty safe to say Atlust wasnt constantly paying a license for that or it would have gotten delisted way earlier (assuming its even delisted now).

>>520848518>Adds ONE DLC character>People throw out this slippery slop bullshit Retards

>>520850860Atlus could've negotiated so that the contract did not include an expiration clause.

>>520851404DLC slippery slope is literal proven history though

>>520840928So what does the DLC actually include? Just Dante? 10 dollars for a single character?

>>520851728How well does DMC sell compared to SMT?That's your answer.

>>520851348the big deal here is that with ps2 classics they're not allowed to make changesits why sega can re-release sonic 3 in pure rom format but 100% can't make a widescreen or hd version

Lots of games have free dlc and would solve the issue you named.

>>520852269>what's stopping one company from selling a piece of content that contains another companies property for free?Gee I wonder.

>>520852359Oh, but the problem recently was that they would have to delist it 5 years from now, and now the problem is back at cost. Nice movable goals there. Free DLC also has development costs. Nothing is free for a company. If they releasing an upscaled ps2 title for 60 bucks they could just absorbed the licensing cost of Dante easily and made it free dlc.

>>520852269No, it wouldn't. Atlus would not be able to distribute Dante, free or otherwise, if their license expires. Of course, there's nothing stopping them from pushing a contract that would allow them unlimited use of the license for this particular game, but that would likely cost them more depending on how willing Capcom is to play ball.

I'd pay 5 bucks for Dante but I'd pay ten for Vergil

Honestly the people complaining about this and the ones defending it are equally retarded, why would you want to play as Some faggot from a different franchise, the only thing Dante does here is ruining the immersion

If you follow the conversation the other user said that if it was packed inside the game the license would expire the whole game, hence suggesting a paid dlc would be a better option. Now the question is obvious. Why a PAID dlc? Why cant Atlus absorb the cost of the license if they are charging full price for a port?

>>520852729Maybe paint his coat red or something

>>520852537>Oh, but the problem recently was that they would have to delist it 5 years from now, and now the problem is back at cost. Nice movable goals there.You fucking wot m8? Both are the exact reason why Dante is a paid DLC and not in the base game for free. Capcom gets a cut of the DLC sales AND when the license expires they just have to delist only the DLC, not the entire game.

>>520850146But it's not common for HD remasters to remove licensed characters to sell you back as a part of the game that they arbitrarily removed. It shows that they we're fine workng on it, making it playable in the new version, then gating it off by a paywall. I don't care if it was from a different release, it was still content from a version of SMT3 and should be in the definitive version.

>>520855073>>520855235I am fully aware of this being why Dante is priced as such, and if I had it my way it wouldn't be but to actually expect a company, fucking Atlus and Capcom especially to not try to nickle and dime the customer is unrealistic. To continue to keep arguing about this is silly because basically anyone would want this shit to be free, but the reality of the situation is that he was never going to be a free DLC and there's no way in hell Capcom would license out Dante to Atlus indefinitely.

Capcom probably wants royalty fees and instead of giving them a cut of the main game they can contain it to DLC. It's the same reason smash ultimate has the 3rd party characters as paid DLC. Legal reasons and minimizing how much they have to pay.

>licensing costsCan always expect Sega shills to shit up a thread.This game is going to cost $60 at launch, which is $10 more than the original game. Are we getting more content for the higher price point? No; it’s an equivalent amount of content. Not just that, but Atlus 17 years ago charged $50 for a game they needed to create from scratch; that was their first PS2 megaten. Plus it came with a soundtrack disc for free.Now, the only effort going into this game is upscaled resolution (takes no effort; emulators upscale literally every game) and increased frame rate (irrelevant in a menu-driven game). Maybe voice acting too but it’s complete amateur hour from what we’ve heard. That’s it. How is this bare minimum amount of effort worth $60? On top of that, there’s day one dlc to add existing content. They pulled the same stunt with Radiant Historia by locking the original art behind day one paid dlc.The profit margins on rereleases is insane, which is why publishers adore the lack of backwards compatibility in consoles. These games are pure profit. There’s no “licensing fee” to eat up the budget; that $60 price tag could very easily absorb the cost, if any exists at all. That’s free marketing for the DMC series. But shills - literal Sega employees - will spout this nonsense to justify their insane greed. And look how it works. How many idiots will purchase this dlc in this thread alone? “It’s only 10 bucks, user. That’s one cheeseburger. You can’t afford one cheeseburger?”Yeah, I can, but when I pay for a combo meal I expect to get the fucking cheeseburger with my meal and not pay extra for it.

If it was just a design comission why even bother credit him in the fucking title screen, sounds more like they had to pay Kaneko again to use themThe old sites are dead but it doesn't matter because the designs were never copyrighted to anyone other than Capcom and Kaneko himself, so any cost would be on an indivudal use basis at most.

You make it seem as if the designs in DMC doesn't help SMT in any way, which is obviously wrong.>This actually sounds like pretty typical third-party involvement in nip development, if Kaneko was working for Atlus at the time then it would cite both in crediting the work since Japanese corporate law is nothing if not very bureaucratic. t. works in nip third-party development.Woudn't it mean then, that Atlus has a hand on the designs and Capcom had to reach Atlus in order to use them again?>One thing is obviously more expensive to use than the other, some designs will never be as major of an issue when it comes to copyright as the face of an entire franchise.So you agree that Capcom had to pay for the design again, and honestly, i doubt Capcom would charge much for the design included and specifically known for the worst selling game of the franchise

The designs are distinct and that has a positive effect, but that doesn't mean it has any copyright or commercial value beyond that.>Woudn't it mean then, that Atlus has a hand on the designs and Capcom had to reach Atlus in order to use them again?Permission? Probably. A specific licensing fee that would actually add significant overhead to the game's budget? Unlikely.>i doubt Capcom would charge much for the design included and specifically known for the worst selling game of the franchiseThey released DMC2 for the same price as DMC1 and 3 for the Switch release, you can be damn sure they don't care about which version they use, they just want to cover their brand recognition because the bureaucracy needs to be upheld.

>>520866778>Legally is what matters, though.No, it doesn't matter because like you said>The designs are distinct and that has a positive effectThey have a postive effect for SMT even if it's not legally, or directly>Permission? Probably. A specific licensing fee that would actually add significant overhead to the game's budget? Unlikely.This Atlus we're speaking about though, wouldn't put it past them>They released DMC2 for the same price as DMC1 and 3 for the Switch release, you can be damn sure they don't care about which version they use, they just want to cover their brand recognition because the bureaucracy needs to be upheld.You've got a point there, but im sure the would care about which version they use, otherwise we'd see DMC2 Dante more often

Is SMT Dante canon to DMC?

>>520868152>They have a postive effect for SMT even if it's not legally, or directlyWe're discussing the business implications of the content which means the concerns begin and end with Japanese corporate and contract law and obligation. As such it does not have the same weight as the main character of a franchise.>This Atlus we're speaking about though, wouldn't put it past themIt probably amounts to a renewal fee at most and when it's just a few designs that won't compare to using Dante.>You've got a point there, but im sure the would care about which version they use, otherwise we'd see DMC2 Dante more oftenWe don't see DMC2 Dante anymore because it isn't en vogue. Do you remember when they put fucking Donte in Playstation All Stars over the actually recognisable version that people loved and cared about? It's literally just because it was the latest iteration and they wanted to promote it, exactly the same reason they used DMC2 Dante in Nocturne over DMC1 Dante, there's no good rationale behind the Capcom (or indeed any publisher) marketing mindset.

>>520868779You know, i don't have to greentext you anymore because i agree with pretty much what you said there, using a Kaneko desing probably doesn't cost to Capcom as much it costs Atlus to use Dante. Still, i feel i doesnt excuse what they're doing with the DLC
