Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster director speaks out on Dante’s relevance

Undoubtedly one of the highlights of Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster is the presence of Dante from Devil May Cry. Today we get some interesting statements about this DLC character.

The information was shared by the remaster’s director, Kazuyuki Yamai, in a recent meeting with Destructoid. In the interview, he said that they had planned to include Dante from the very beginning and that they never doubted that they wanted to bring him back this time around.

“We approached Capcom as soon as development for the remaster started,” he says. He shares that, fortunately, “Capcom accepted the idea very quickly”.

“Aside from his role in the story, Dante’s major impact in Nocturne probably made Atlus reflect on how stylish a hero he was and consider introducing a similar protagonist in the future, being key in setting the tone for Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha,” he added.
