Ninja Theory's reboot of the Devil May Cry series has faced its share of criticism from when it was first announced. But was does the original game's director Hideki  think about the recently released DmC: Devil may Cry?

Eurogamer reports that the director recently tweeted the answer to that question after being asked it by numerous followers on his Twitter account. Kamiya tweeted, "I've been getting a lot of DmC tweets lately. DmC is a very unique title, and I honestly hope that people enjoy it."

Kamiya said that he is happy that there is still such a great interest in the series and that he is happy that fans continue to love the Devil May Cry Series.

"I am also happy to see all of your messages, even though the first Devil May Cry came out 12 years ago," he added. "That being said, DMC has been on its own path for a long time now and asking my opinion of things is pointless... My only opinion is that people continue to love the Devil May Cry series, both fans and its creators alike. It's yours now."

According to Eurogamer, he then retweeted the following tweet from one of his followers: "Glad you feel that way. Ninja Theory is a really talented UK studio and they've treated your game with respect." He added an "Indeed" to the end of the tweet.

Ninja Theory took notices of Kamiya's tweets and tweeted, "Thank you for your kind words. We are of course huge fans of your work and can't wait to play Metal Gear Rising."

DmC: Devil May Cry arrived on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on Tuesday Jan. 15, 2013 across North America and Europe with a PC version launching shortly after. The game will be available for digital download for Windows PC on Jan. 25, 2013.
