DmC: Devil may Cry developer Ninja Theory has released a video showing off the new, controversial lock-on mode.

The new manual lock-on is causing quite a stir, although its reception is probably better than the white-wigged Dante who makes fans even more upset than the original makeover.

“The primary purpose of this video is to quickly showcase some of the techniques made possible or more practical thanks to the advent of the optional manual lock-on system in ‘Definitive Edition,'” the video’s description noted.

“We encourage players to play around with the settings and discover which control setup best suits their own combat style.”
