Capcom Teases Secret Project

We all know Ninja Theory is currently working on the Devil May Cry reboot (dubbed "DMC"), but Capcom seems to have something else up their sleeves.

A reader has pointed us in the direction of the Capcom-Unity blog, where they've detailed a fan-art contest in commemoration of Devil May Cry's 10th anniversary. The winning entries will be featured in a new, unannounced title. We have no hints but here's part of the contest announcement:

"Think about all the iconic characters from Dante, Nero, Vergil, Trish, and Lady and all the fantastic weapons they have wielded. Think of the bosses and many battles Dante has had to cleave his way through. And most of all, think of the style that all this has been done in, from Dante’s cockiness to Sparda’s impeccable honor! The winners of the competition will receive a place in history when their artwork is featured in a new, to be announced Capcom game! (plus a copy of said secret game when upon its release!)"

One might wonder what the project is; after all, if they're not referring to the new DMC title, what might it be? Characters from the series have popped up elsewhere, though, such as Marvel vs. Capcom 3, but we're thinking about something special...like a blend of Onimusha and Devil May Cry. Sweeeeeet.

By the way, if you fancy yourself an artist, you should enter. Submissions are due by July 29.

Has the DMC collection been officially announced? If so, could it just be for that?

Not officially. But it makes sense, particularly as they're looking back here, rather than forward.

Maybe it's a Devil May Cry spinoff game huh? That seems likely since Dragon's Dogma will be their all new IP focus for now. Perhaps with Ninja Theory bringing us Dante's origin story, Capcom will focus on Vergil's story.

Yeah I would like to see what the New Vergil would look like with an actual origin story as we have not go a detail on how Vergil was raised or lived while being separated from Dante

If its not the HD collection, which everyone already knows about, it better not be some crappy DMC fighter, or something for the 3DS.

Hopefully we are all wrong and its a new Onimusha or something.

Normally this kind of thing would come post-announcement, so it seem to me as though production is already almost complete, and what else could it really be unless DMC Classics HD?

Then again, maybe it'll be DMC Dance of Sparda is a launch title for the Vita. *drools* Or maybe Capcom have taken up Platinum's offer and gone to them for a spin-off to launch alongside DmC?

I get the feeling we'll get DMC Collection, probably a bit of time before DmC comes out which will be very very VERY weird when the new Dante is completely different from the ones in the collection.

How about Devil May cry characters guesting in Soul Calibur 5? Or Soul Calibur vs DMC?

Ugh not another 'VS' game its bad enough Tekken has degraded itself and gone into that comic book gimmick.

I would certainly welcome an Onimusha though :)

Indeed. I do not like the gimmicky VS games, and the inclusion of obviously out-of-place guest characters is annoying as well.
