Capcom have unveiled the musical talent behind the score for DmC (Devil May Cry) who worked in close collaboration with Capcom and Ninja Theory.
Both Noisia and Combichrist composed music that will be heard during cinematics and gameplay, including combat, while Combichrist catalogue tracks were also licensed to add to the game’s “adrenaline-pumping” soundtrack.
“It’s been an awesome experience working with Ninja Theory on the game. We had great freedom but were also bound by certain criteria typical in the game world. These are challenging boundaries (for example; consistency in sonics over 180 minutes of music) but also lots of space in terms of dynamics & progression and instrumentation being able to create soundscapes without having to worry about holding the attention of a dancefloor. Their music director was great to work with, good vibes. It’s great when you get to play to your strengths. Also, the game kicks ass!” – Noisia, June 2012.
“As an avid gamer myself I was honored to be asked to work on this project. I had a lot of fun digging myself into Dante’s psyche in order to create music to match the battle scenes and am equally as excited to license existing Combichrist music. I’m looking forward playing the finished game when it comes out.” – Andy LaPlegua, Lead Singer Combichrist, June 2012.

DmC will hit PS3 and Xbox 360 on 15 January 2013 in both North America and Europe, and as usual, we presume South Africa falls under the European release date. Capcom also confirmed that a PC version is under development and will be out sometime in 2013.
