DmC: Definitive Edition Is Nice, But What About A Sequel?
I've got no problem with Definitive Editions or remasters. I really don't.
If you can spruce up an existing game and get people to buy it, more power to you. Even so, at what point do we ask, "How's about a sequel?"
The DmC: Devil May Cry Definitive Edition sounds like a nicely appointed, enticing package. I really like a lot of the new additions and improvements and I'm sure it'll be a fantastic option for anyone who either loved the original or didn't play it. But with a franchise like this, I really just want another installment. As much as I appreciate what Ninja Theory did with the series, I'd like a return to the older, silver-haired Dante and the darker, more Gothic style.
I suppose the big question is this: Do these re-releases get in the way of possible sequels and follow-up efforts? I mean, are the developers using valuable time and resources that would be best utilized in an all-new game? Or, do such re-releases take very little in the way of time and money, so they don't get in the way at all...? I think it would depend on the remaster/definitive edition we're talking about but even so, I'd rather hear about a sequel than an upgrade of an existing title.
