I'm also only reading the trades. So I'm still missing... two volumes that are currently only available as hardcovers? Three?

@  Trpodeca : (17 January 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Astro City is great. Since I only read the trades, there probably won't be a big change for me.

@  ZakuConvoy : (17 January 2019 - 05:34 PM)

I have. Great series. Hopefully the transition to OGNs will be a smooth one.

That said, the old "Nester" character from Nintendo Power IS owned by Nintendo, and I could see a homage in there

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2019 - 10:46 AM)

Because technically DiC created the character, Nintendo does not own him.

@  Paladin : (16 January 2019 - 10:28 AM)

sidebar- why is "Captain N" not in Smash yet? that seems like such an easy option.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2019 - 09:18 AM)

The 90's mario cartoons had exactly three character aspects to work with: fat, italian and plumber. He wasn't exactly wrenching pipes in every episode, so they had to do something...

There's always the three Mario cartoons DiC made back in the 80s.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 09:48 PM)

So they could make a show that everyone would scream was an adventure time knockoff? I get what you're saying, but I can't see it being well received.

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 January 2019 - 08:47 PM)

The fact that Adventure Time was on the air for 8 years and at no point did Nintendo hand the creators a large sack of money and say, "Please make a Mario thing for us" will forever anger me.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 07:03 PM)

There was so much awesome put into design and conception of the super mario bros. movie, and it didn't even need the branding: but it wouldn't have made it to the screen without the branding.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:56 PM)

Many aspects of it have stuck in my memory, though. The boots, the devolution ray, the aesthetic of the dinosaur city

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:55 PM)

I had no idea there was another Mario Bros. movie coming out, though. Doubt it'll top the first one, it was just so bizarre

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:55 PM)

They already act a bit like minions; they just aren't stupid

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 05:35 PM)

The trouble is: I honestly can't decide if making them minions would be better or worse than the continuously shrill voices they've used for the last 20 years.

@  Paladin : (15 January 2019 - 05:27 PM)

hope everyone's ready for Toads to look, act & sound like the Minions forever...

@  Lancer : (15 January 2019 - 04:54 PM)

I mean, considering Illumination is making the new Mario movie, Super Mario Bros. 1993 won't be the worst Mario movie anymore

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 04:36 PM)

"Sir, your pizza's here." "Not now!"

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 04:28 PM)

Actually, yeah. I think I need to watch it again. Great movie.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 03:44 PM)

It's a fun movie with amazing sets. As long as you don't try to connect it to anything else Mario, it's fine.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 03:38 PM)

Damn, I haven't thought about the Super Mario Bros. feature film in forever. Need to watch it again, soon; I can only imagine it gets better with time.

Re:Zero is a fantastic series.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 January 2019 - 03:10 PM)

Yeah it's not a bad concept, it's just that lately the term is associated with "I, a Loser Everyman, Woke Up In a Generic Fantasy Setting Where I'm Super Special So Now Girls Orbit Me"

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 12:59 PM)

So too is the old Super Mario Bros movie

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 12:28 PM)

I went and looked up the term "isekai"... that's not actually as bad as I thought it was going to be.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 January 2019 - 12:19 PM)

I'm not sure, but the cartoon segments of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show are.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 12:12 PM)

@  Waspinator : (14 January 2019 - 09:50 PM)

The Last Starfighter is also one of those

@  Sabrblade : (14 January 2019 - 09:03 PM)

The Thor movies and Enchanted, as well.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 January 2019 - 08:45 PM)

@xellos We get to many of those in Hollywood movies.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 January 2019 - 08:13 PM)

Re:Creators!

@  Xellos : (14 January 2019 - 07:47 PM)

There is also Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero, where people regularly get summoned to a fantasy world, then eventually sent back with their accumulated powers (and the main character smuggles the demon lord's daugher by his request, which is a no-no)

@  Waspinator : (14 January 2019 - 07:23 PM)

We need more inverse isekais, like The Devil is a Part-Timer

@  ▲ndrusi : (14 January 2019 - 04:11 PM)

I feel like Tron is pushing it but I can't actually come up with an argument to that effect

@  Pennpenn : (14 January 2019 - 03:21 PM)

To Arazyr- I don't see why it wouldn't be.

They'd previously talked about how the Devil Breakers can be destroyed by enemies, but I am slightly surprised how many ways you have to deliberately break them for effects.

Looks like Nero has a total of eight (two sets of four) to start with, and there's probably going to be more types and capacity upgrades.

 

Still, this is the first combat resource that can really be depleted that I can recall in the series.  Sure, some attacks deplete meters, but those could be refilled just by fighting.  Breaker drops look to be generous, but they still depend on item drops.  It's an interesting change, although I'm not sure how fun it'll be.  If nothing else, it'll encourage players to run through all the types rather than relying on just one.


Unfortunately, fools are often planproof.

We can apparently buy more from Nico's shop mid-mission (that's what calling her on the phone is for), but it's not in the demo. Not that I'm disagreeing; how exactly they balance the Devil Breaker's "resource management" aspect will be very important.

The Breaker drops in the gameplay demo seemed pretty placeholder-y, liberally sprinkled throughout the level so you wouldn't have to worry about managing them too much.  I don't think they'll just be lying on the ground randomly in the final game.

 

Dante's new bike looks cool.  At least, now he doesn't have to borrow (and destroy) Lady's bike.  Twin buzzsaw swords!

Actually they will be lying on the ground randomly in the final game, I just imagine not as frequently as we saw in the demo. The director talked about it in an interview not long after e3.

 

Can you tell us about Nero's new prosthetic arm?

 

Okabe: The "Devil Breaker", the prosthetic arm created by Nico, will change the game drastically. Devil Breaker has some slots for cartridges, and you can carry them when the mission begins. They are very powerful, but fragile. You have to dodge enemy attacks or they will break very easily, so you need to put a new cartridge when one breaks. There are some cartridges placed in each level, and you can also buy them from Nico who will arrive in a van. The arm is one of Nero's core mechanics in this game.

I meant more like they wouldn't just be there for no reason, but placed like most DMC powerups, in breakables and such.

 

From what I can tell, though, even if you're a bit careless with your Breaker usage, you won't be left completely in the deep end.  It looks like the Whip Arm is the back-up weapon, its reel serving as the attachment point for all the other Breakers.

The official site's descriptions are so bombastic I felt they needed to be shared.

 

 

Devil Breaker

New power for a broken hunter

 

A weaponized prosthetic arm made by Nico to replace Nero's missing limb.
High output performance makes them break easily, so Nero usually carries multiple Devil Breakers into battle, swapping out broken arms for new ones.
The base of the Devil Breaker contains the Wire Snatch ability, which pulls smaller foes to him or sends him rocketing towards larger targets, living or otherwise.

 

---

Overture

Iconic demon shocker

 

The first Devil Breaker built by Nico.
An orthodox weapon compared to the other arms, damaging enemies with electric bursts. Its name is derived from this straightforward functionality.
The first Devil Breaker available in the game, this arm is easy for starting players to use.

 

---

Gerbera

Obliterating recoil laser

 

A Devil Breaker that launches shockwaves from its petal-shaped complex reverberatory furnace. The recoil can be used for instantaneous movement, and converging the shockwaves makes it fire a high-output energy beam. Beautiful design belies tremendous firepower.

 

---

Ragtime

Versatile time stopper

 

This arm was crafted from special materials obtained from a powerful foe.
Creates special force fields that warp and slow the flow of time for all within them.
Convenient for taking on multiple foes at once, the utility of this Devil Breaker varies based on your play style.

 

---

Punch Line

Flying haymaker

 

Rare demonic minerals give this Devil Breaker jet propulsion power, packing incredible destructive force behind each blow. The arm can detach to fly around autonomously, during which Nero can ride it. Slam into demons in this mode for even more damage.

 

---

Buster Arm

Replicated Devil Bringer

 

Nico tried to recreate Nero's lost demonic arm, resulting in a powerhouse capable of throwing enemies with devastating force. This brute strength comes at the price of reduced durability, but the chance to toss around massive demons is well worth it.

So Neros lost his Devil Arm? I'm guessing that means he's lost Yamato too.

This is an interesting dynamic. I hope the story is crazy enough to live up to this.

Yeah, if you go back to the e3 trailer there's a sequence near the end where we see a "mysterious" figure tear the Devil Bringer off.

 

Nero can wear his hood, and the classic revving taunt now fills an Exceed bar:

I'm not sure how I feel about Nero losing the 'easy and fun' gameplay to Dante's 'difficult but ultimately satisfying'. Maybe V will take up Nero's old role?

I mean, it's more that Nero gets torn off the Devil Bringer, mysterious-hooded-stranger-who's-totally-Vergil holds onto the arm and pushes Nero away.

I'm a little TORN (sorry) about Nero losing his devil arm. I do like what I see with the Devil Breakers, but not really a fan of them being limited use. I kinda feel I'd want to find a way to just have one permanently and be done with it. I'm sure when I actually get to play the game though, I'll likely come around.

 

I'm really curious as to what's happened to Kyrie.

 

And look, I'm sorry but from what little I've seen of her, I really do NOT like this Nico girl. >_>


It's a secret to everybody

We've had confirmation that this comes after DMC2, which continues the trend of no two games in the series being next to each other in the timeline. Hopefully this also means that we'll see Lucia at some point too, she's the only playable character that was left out of 4SE.

Of note they show off most of the functions of the Tomboy ("Exceed Arm" in pic before), Helter Skelter ("Drill Arm"), and the Rawhide ("Whip Arm") Devil Breakers. Punch Line and Ragtime also get some proper gameplay showing, so we get a better idea of exactly how they work.

Someone who has most certainly violated an NDA of some sort has been sharing pics and footage from a playtest copy of the game. If you're the sort that wants to avoid spoilers I'd tread very carefully, as they're popping up all over.
