How about bringing back Mega Man instead of remixing an unsuccessful franchise?
Bit harsh there, whilst I'm skeptical of how this one will turn out and 4 wasn't as good as it could and should have been, I'm pretty sure the series of games as a whole could be deemed fairly successful. I'm sure I remember reading that the financial return on the DMC games has risen with every game and overall has been solid if unspectacular. Add to this a central character whose popularity has surpassed the actual franchise he's from and lets be honest surpassed the popularity of Megaman outside of a select group of gamers.

Put all this together and your terming of the DMC franchise as unsuccessful seems a little ludicrous in all honesty.

On one hand I do like Dante's new style. It really has a sort of allure to it, but on the other hand it's really just not Dante. This game is going to be really hit-or-miss.

I'd love to hear your explanation on how DMC has been "unsuccessful" as a franchise, maybe you've found some hidden figures nobody else has access too.

Excluding co-op for "narrative" reasons is completely ridiculous. That was a similar reason as to why the campaign mode in Dynasty Warriors 7 was one player only and it was a very poor decision as playing with a friend is one way of livening up a huge hack and slash game. Wanting to hoard all enemies to yourself is a better reason to exclude co-op, but this is the sort of game where two people trying to style on a bunch of enemies at the same time would work incredibly well. They could employ a Doom II style approach and introduce more enemies compared to the single player version.
