Capcom and Ninja Theory (Enslaved, Heavenly Sword) have released some new screenshots are artwork from their up-coming Devil May Cry reboot – DmC. We also got some more details about the game’s protagonist, and his demonic weapons.

Dante, our anti-hero, is a young man who has no respect for authority and society in general (so hardcore), who was subjected to violence and torture by demons throughout his life. Needless yo say, all those years of suffering made Dante develop a burning hatred of demons, and now he uses his ancient and cool weapons to dispose of them.

These weapons – a sword called Rebellion, passed down to Dante by his father, and two pistols named Ebony & Ivory – are Dante’s only means of protection against the demonic forces that torment him. You can see them in action in the gallery below.

DmC is set for a 2012 release on the Xbox 360 and PS3.
