I translate the lyrics from the original Japanese and the lyrics are very different from the official when translated.

I hope we see DMC 4 SE and DmC tomorrow
DMC4SE would be great - I've only ever played the original DMC4, so I'd like to try playing as Vergil, Trish, and Lady. (who knows - maybe that could inspire me to write yet another Devil May Cry moveset!)

Nothing that I've seen of DmC appeals to me - I've heard the gameplay's good (or at least okay), but the story and characters are off-putting to me.

For reference, a Nintendo Direct's been announced for 2 pm PST/5 pm EST tomorrow. It's 50 minutes long and the first full-sized general Direct in over a year, and Smash Bros. news has been confirmed, so expectations are high.

Yeah DmC isnt my favorite but having most of the dmc games on switch sounds nice even if they arent to the highest quality.

How likely do you guys think it is that Dante gets revealed for Smash tomorrow? Personally, I don’t think a very high amount but who knows!

outside of DMC4SE possbly being sneak announced in one of those upcoming games compilations, I'm not particularly expecting him or anyone in particular as a potential announcement for Smash.

I'm not expecting Dante to be revealed in the Direct but I'm fast-tracking my updated moveset to be released before it just so that work I did isn't put to waste if he is.

Hey y'all. Coming by to wish you luck in your favorite pizza and sundae-loving half-demon demon slayer and video game persona in possibility getting in tonight!

Much would prefer Amaterasu or Phoenix Wright but definitely wouldn't mind Dante as he'd be fun coming with a fun and creative moveset.

not even DMC4SE in one of those reels, not like that means anything for Dantes chances but there's certainly been better days to be a supporter.

Because we have two slots left, I'm curious to hear which two characters would any of you go with. I know this is a Dante thread so you'd obviously choose Dante, but again I want to hear your thoughts on who do you choose for the final 2.

Dante and Kiryu are among my most wanted so it's pretty easy for me, although I wouldn't say no to Eggman.

I'd go Dante and Demi-fiend.

For old times' sake...

Sora as my #2 pick with Kiryu as a runner up
Prior to Pyra/Mythra I once speculated that either two Namco characters would made it in, Jin from TEKKEN and Yuri from Tales (Because we have Heihachi as a Mii and the Lloyd costume possibly returning). However it's also possible that if a character from TEKKEN made it in as part of the Fighters Pass, they would've released it along the Heihachi costume.

NGL I'm really worried about that upcoming Presents. The Mii's especially if Monster Hunter is there.

Being my most wanted character, I decided to do my own take on what Dante’s move set would look like. I didn’t include Style Switching or Devil Trigger as he would already be complex enough without them and I’ve already seen people do better move sets with those gimmicks. Instead, I focused on giving him a unique play style and tons of potential combos. I plan to add more to it like Spirits and Classic Mode eventually as well as updating it based on feedback. And that being said, please check out my moveset and give feedback if you have the time! It is my first moveset so it would be appreciated!

I personally think even just two bars feels like too much, tbh. Trying to stack style switch on top of that is like, overload. DMC pulls it off because it has more buttons to use, but Smash's controls are too simple for Style Switching to be done elegantly. Hats off to anyone who tries, though.

Jade- that moveset is pretty cool! I like it. Not many takes on the set that use Style Rankings, which would be a really wild concept in Smash and definitely unlike anything else in the game.

Stillndude we need him in smash! Dante must make it otherwise we would never know if another smash is coming unless Fighters pass 3 is announced

I wish she sang "Bury the Light" instead of "Ruriiro No Chikyuu" by Seiko Matsuda though
