New DmC Screens, Art Work, and Info: Dante, Weapons, and Design

Capcom has released some new info and insight on the upcoming Ninja Theory Devil May Cry remake/reboot – DmC. Capcom reveals a little bit on Dante’s personality and background, plus some interesting info on his weapons the Rebellion and Ebony & Ivory. In addition, we get a little bit of info on the designs of those.


The Dante of DMC Devil May Cry is a young man with no respect for authority or society in general. Dante knows that he is not human, but also that he is not like the demons that have tormented him throughout his life. Caught between worlds, he feels like an outcast.

Dante grew up in various institutions, orphanages, youth correction facilities and foster homes but these were mostly operated by demons and often resulted in torture and violence. Dante has therefore developed a deep hatred of demons and authority in general but tries to stay incognito. He sides with the little guy, the victims of what he sees as an unfair society.

Rebellion and Ebony & Ivory

The Rebellion sword was given to Dante by his father Sparda as a weapon with which he could protect him from the demons that hunt him. How Dante came into possession of Ebony and Ivory or where they come from is unknown.

Design Ethos

The design philosophy behind both Rebellion and Ebony & Ivory is to create the impression that they were crafted a long, long time ago and since their creation they have sent innumerable demons to their doom.

Ebony & Ivory have straight, clean looking barrels that make them look like contemporary firearms, while the addition of ornate embossing is used to give the guns a feeling of mystique and uniqueness. As you move into the grip you can see that the guns have a more fluid, liquid like look that adds further mystery and a demonic flavor to their design.

Rebellion is designed to look like a powerful sword, with the detailing on the handle giving it a feeling of historical significance coupled with a demonic heritage. The same design ethos what was used for the Ebony & Ivory grips is also true for Rebellion’s hilt, making the weapons match stylistically.
