On 14th March, YouTube channel Toy Bounty Hunters uploaded a two-hour long interview session with well-reputed actor Reuben Langdon who has been the voice of Dante since Devil May Cry 3. In the interview, the actor revealed how Series Director Hideaki Itsuno almost resigned from Capcom following the release of DmC: Devil May Cry.
“He was ready to leave Capcom”, Reuben said. “He was not happy. And I think he put in his resignation and then they said wait-wait, you’re a valuable guy (and) we don’t want you to leave. What can make you stay?”
In the words of Reuben, Itsuno demanded a Devil May Cry game. Itsuno had a wishlist and Devil May Cry was on the top of his wishlist. He said he’ll stay if Capcom let him do a Devil May Cry game the way he wanted to do it. Reuben further commented, “Hats off to him(Itsuno) and hats off to Capcom for going all out and they literally gave him everything he requested and wanted for this game. And it’s paying off.”
The series’ 2019 iteration, Devil May Cry 5, is doing exceptionally well both in terms of sales and critical acclaim. The game is currently at number one position in the UK and Japan sales charts, with over 75.75% of its retail shipment being sold in Japan alone.
