If you’re violently resistant to change, you may want to tell all puntable creatures to leave the room. According to Siliconera, Dante’s now half-demon and half-angel. Unfortunately, according to our villainous arch-rival Math, that leaves very little room for the human half that so characterized the white-haired embodiment of mid-life crisis in previous games. On the upside, the back-and-forth between Dante’s eclectic backgrounds will manifest in changes to his weapon, creating either a holy scythe or evil axe. Fingers crossed, though, that the weaponized guitar’s also making a comeback. Because truly, what’s more righteous than the power of rock?
