Step inside Dante’s inferno with this Devil May Cry figure from NECA

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. And is also hard evidence that this game was indeed made in 2001.

Resident Evil : Jill Valentine

Jill Valentine is all legs as a 13-inch statue from Hollywood collectibles.

A Resident Evil favorite, Jill was recruited into S.T.A.R.S. (Special Tactics And Rescue Service) for her already well-developed fighting skills. She is one of the few surviving S.T.A.R.S. members of the infamous Mansion incident, and long time partner and close friend of Chris Redfield.

This awesome 1:6 statue is a polystone masterpiece painted with some amazing detail. Standing on a Raccoon City base, it’s limited to a paltry 500 pieces so get on it!.

Chris Redfield Statue

CHRIS REDFIELD, perhaps the most enduring protagonist of the Resident Evil series, is here immortalized as a 13-inch statue, clad in full military gear and brandishing his pistol.

One of the Raccoon City S.T.A.R.S. police officers, he’s taken down more zombies and abominations than almost any other video game character out there– and the competition is stiff. Now, this figure is a pre-order shipping in November, but you’ll definitely want to act fast because the statue is limited to a mere 500 pieces world-wide.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City CONFIRMED!

Good news for Resident Evil fans from Capcom Unity! Read on:

Capcom® a leading worldwide developer and publisher of videogames, today announced Resident Evil®: Operation Raccoon City, is in development for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft® and PC. In addition it was also confirmed that the forthcoming Nintendo 3DS™ title, Resident Evil®: The Mercenaries 3D, will ship with a playable demo of Resident Evil® Revelations.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is collaboration between Capcom and Vancouver based studio Slant 6 Games and is scheduled for release this Winter. Since the launch of the first title 15 years ago the Resident Evil® series has enjoyed phenomenal success, selling over 45 million units worldwide to date. This latest offering will take the series in a completely new direction and offer a style of gameplay yet to be seen from the franchise.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City delivers a true third person team based shooter experience set within the dark and sinister Resident Evil universe and a reinterpretation of the events depicted in Resident Evil® 2 and Resident Evil® 3. The setting of the Resident Evil universe not only provides a rich backdrop to the action but delivers a unique and thrilling triple threat battle. Zombies and Bio-Organic Weapons (B.O.W’s) add to the mix as players not only compete against an opposing squad but also tackle this third unpredictable element, creating a brand new style of gameplay and breaking the conventions of traditional team based shooters.

It is September 1998 and the action centres once more on the ill-fated Raccoon City and the horrific consequences of the deadly T-virus outbreak from the Umbrella facility. With a cover up required, Umbrella orders an elite team into Raccoon City to destroy all evidence of the outbreak and eliminate any survivors. Hearing of this plan, the US Government dispatches its own special forces to uncover any evidence that exposes the cause of the viral infection and Umbrella’s actions. Players take on the role of an Umbrella Security Services soldier (U.S.S.), competing alone or in four player co-op in a battle against all the competing forces at play in Raccoon City.

Expect the return of original Resident Evil enemies, iconic landmarks such as the Raccoon City Police Department and fan favourite characters, including Leon S. Kennedy, who as a rookie police officer in Raccoon City is on your hit list to eliminate. Players will experience a retelling of classic moments from past titles Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 and watch the events unfolding from the menacing perspective of the Umbrella Security Service, giving fans the chance to rewrite the history of the Raccoon City outbreak.

In addition, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City will deliver a number of competitive online multiplayer modes. Each one of these will provide a unique gaming experience thanks to the three way combat between the Umbrella Security Service, US Special Ops and threat of zombies and B.O.W’s that could only exist in the deadly and twisted Resident Evil Universe.

Purchasers of Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, scheduled for release in the coming months, will get an extra taste of horror thanks to the addition of a playable demo of Resident Evil Revelations. Set on board an ocean liner, the demo lets players take control of one of the full game’s characters, Jill Valentine, as she explores the ship’s dark interior, killing any mysterious creatures that emerge from the shadows. A brand new title built from the ground up for the Nintendo 3DS, further details on Resident Evil Revelations will be revealed at this year’s E3.
