Stig Asmussen hopes Dante’s Inferno is a threat to God of War III

God of War III’s Stig Asmussen has told CVG that he hopes EA’s upcoming actioner Dante’s Inferno gives God of War III a bit of competition.

“Some of the guys who used to work on GOW are working on Dante’s,” he said. “Really good guys. I hope they make a fantastic game that serves as good competition for us. I think using Dante’s Inferno as a theme could really cook into something special – it is a very rich world to draw from.

“As far as a threat to Kratos goes, I hope so. We need more great games in this genre.”

Other than a few trailers and screens, he had not seen much of the game, but is aware that preliminary thoughts on the title are positive.

Good stuff.

    The 1st Devil May Cry, not DMC4.

    yeah, it was ultimate awesomness.

    no DMC – no further games in the genre, like GoW.

    I’m cautiously optimistic for the game and love the use of Dante as a backdrop, regardless of how much they’ve toyed with the actual story.
    But this game seems to have come from nowhere and looks to have been almost thrown together because they’ve sat on the coat tails of GoW. I agree it would be great to see more games use more ideas, biblical epics, Greco/Roman mythology, etc. but we still seem to scraping the barrel for bald space marine games and FPS. The other side of the statement is…you can have all the GoW inspired games in the world, but if they suck, then they suck.
