“DmC” caps at 30 fps
DmC director Hideaki Itsuno justified the video game’s lower frame rate in a recent statement. Currently, the game caps at 30 frames per second, half that of its predecessor, Devil May Cry 4. According to Itsuno, the game’s design fills in the blanks where you would perceive the lowered frame rate, making it appear smoother than it is.
This game has caused drama since its announcement, splitting the fanbase in half over issues ranging from character design to gameplay. This setback is nothing more than icing on the disappointment cake. If there is anyone still excited for DmC, they won’t be turned off now if they haven’t been already.
