Ninja Theory Removes A Sexually Charged Line In New DmC
Well, yeah, the line didn't really work.
If you've played DmC: Devil May Cry, you're familiar with the sexually suggestive themes and language. But when you play the Definitive Edition (launching this week), you might notice a missing line in an early cut-scene.
Eurogamer first noticed it: Mundus is telling his mistress Lilith about his evil plan for the world. At one point, Lilith says, "The world is at last your bitch. As am I. Nothing left but to grab it by the hair, bend it over, and f..." Well, in the updated version, she just says, "The world is at last your bitch."
Developer Ninja Theory clarified the reasons behind this small change to GameSpot:
"We did make an edit to the opening cut scene. It wasn't a case of censorship as there are far more suggestive scenes in the game.
We felt that scene in particular drags on a little bit for the opening sequence and frankly, we didn't like the line. Those few seconds were irrelevant to the scene and is covered effectively in a later scene where Mundus is metaphorically shafting world leaders."
But there's also a "brand new cut-scene" to look forward to, and don't forget that the developers worked hard to make this new iteration of the game better than ever. Even if you already played it back in 2013, the Definitive Edition might still be well worth your time.
