Capcom’s hugely successful video-game franchise has let gamers avenge a death by taking out demons since 2001. Who could resist an epic mission like that? And now, after the release of latest installment Definitive Edition just a couple of months ago, it’s more than fitting to celebrate with a special seven-inch version of the series protagonist.
Here we say hello to Dante, the un-daunted warrior with his trusty pistols Ebony and Ivory. Set with 35 points of articulation, he’s ready to bring the on-screen battles to life with you. He also comes with his sword Alastor, a shotgun and interchangeable hands to enable him to wield all of his weapons. Dante will come in a flapped window box similar to NECA’s NES-style figure. A necessity for the ultimate DMC enthusiast, this version of Dante is not to be missed.
Devil May Cry me a river.
If you know your Japanese video games as well as you know your favorite freckle constellation, then you’ll also probably know that a collaboration between Capcom’s Mega Man, S.H. Figuarts and Tamashii Nations is something to get excited about! First released for NES in 1987, Mega Man and all of its permutations have been delighting collectors as nostalgic icons for almost 30 years.
And here, the famed protagonist Zero leaps and bounds in from the Mega Man Zero series, originally released for Game Boy Advance in the early 2000s. First appearing in Mega Man X, Zero is outfitted with a complete collection of epic weapon accessories that come right from the series itself. Recreate favorite sequences with the ever-ready Z-Saber, the laser pistol Buster Shot or the lance-like Triple Rod. And he comes with even more true-to-aesthetic accessories, like a defense shield, as well as one interchangeable expression part and three additional hand parts. Wow! You can’t miss out.
Zero is all hero.
The word “Dante” may bring to mind the Italian poet and his storied description of medieval Hell, but the name itself means “enduring”. We think it’s a more-than-fitting mononym for the rage-and-justice-fueled protagonist of Capcom’s Devil May Cry. Considered so deviant from the Resident Evil franchise that it merited its own series, the “Platinum Title” sees Dante avenging the murder of his mother through intense combat and the radical wiping-out of any and all foes in the form of demons. This gaming experience’s fiery darkness has spawned a devoted following, inspiring this seven-inch NECA figurine.
Boasting over 35 points of articulation and his two trusty firearms, Ebony and Ivory, he also brings with him the sword Alastor, a shotgun and interchangeable hands to carry it all. Although this isn’t pictured below, NECA has states that in March 2015, Dante will come in a flapped window box similar to their NES-style figures, which will hearken back to the look of the original video-game packaging. It’s clear that a lot of intention has gone into the careful crafting of this figurine. Preorder now so you don’t look back and regret missing out!
Dante’s hair is the stuff of legend. It’s also hard evidence that this game was indeed made in 2001.
So what do these three things have in common? Recall cherished memories of third- and fourth-generation gaming consoles like the NES with this brand-new wave of figurines inspired by the Super Mario and Donkey Kong franchises! From Jakks Pacific comes the World of Nintendo series, and they’ve stocked their lineup with a bevy of adored characters. From Mario to Yoshi to Kong, these figures range in size from 2 to 6 inches. Wave one will be available for shipping as soon as November, so preorder now!
Still beaming that same smile after all these years. Mario, you’re a gem.
