Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition picked the wrong date to be released on

I-NEED-MORE-POWER

Deep breath. Get ready, and shout it out loud with me: I NEED MORE POWER! POOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWER!

It’s official: Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition has picked the very worst possible date to launch this year. Because some genius at Capcom thought it’d be a great idea to release the game on June 23, the same day as Batman: Arkham Knight. OY VEY! Here’s a new trailer for the game, running at the rather sweet spot of 1080p at 60 of those glistening frames per second, making the 2008 game look up to scratch on current hardware:

If you haven’t been keeping up, Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition is the entire game, plus extras. Players get the chance to play as either Vergil, Lady, Trish, Nero or Dante, plus there’s a ton of new modes on offer. According to my top secret sources, this could also be the last time we see a Devil May Cry game from Capcom, for quite a while. Apparently, the series will be getting overhauled, with a western studio stepping in to breathe some new life into the franchise. According to these sources, a younger Dante will feature, with more attitude and less white hair as his story is retold. Sounds like a blast.

My sources have also informed me of a new Nintendo home console that is certain to take the world by storm and will sell millions upon millions of units and will in no way be a massive flop whatsoever, but that’s a scoop for later today. Stay tuned to Lazygamer, for the latest in breaking news from 2009.

    Heading should read. “Batman: Arkham Knight picked a date too close to the Witcher 3 release, Sales drop”

    Hmm … future heading maybe?

        But at least the Witcher have reviews in from almost everywhere. This new trend that reviews only happen after the game hits the store shelves, those are the ones I will miss.

      Everybody will. 40 minutes to ride from point to point has a tendancy to kill time. At least people will be able to read a good book in between.

      Bats are animals. Their blood is cold only when they’re inactive. So then, it stands to reason, that Batman is cool when he is lounging around doing nothing and “meh” when he is doing Batman things.

    Maybe not the best date, but who cares? Those interested in it (i’m among them) will get it anyways, but to attract new player will be hard no matter when it’s released.

    HAHAHAhahah oh gosh. Capcom learned the hard way when they outsourced DmC to a western developer. Im pretty sure they would seriously think twice about doing so again; especially saying how outsourcing to western devs didn’t work out so well as they hoped.

    Naw – rather to let it die than to smear it’s reputation through that turd-fest again.
