I don’t think words can express just how much I adore Devil May Cry. The Xbox 360 and PS3 generation gave us two superb outings in the franchise, with Devil May Cry 4 giving players control of a new demon hunter and DmC Devil May Cry rebooting the series under the guidance of developer Ninja Theory. Two fantastic, incredible games. And now they’re headed to the latest generation of consoles.
DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition will include the original game from the Heavenly Blade developer, as well as all the previously released downloadable content such as Vergil’s Downfall and new challenge modes such as Gods Must Die, Hardcore mode and Must Style mode. As is the norm for remasters, it’ll run at that buttery smooth 60 frames per second and in 1080p.
The only catch however, is the remaster borders on a full price re-release, as it’ll set you back $39.99 / EUR 39.99 / GBP 29.99 when it arrives on March 17. Ouch. The Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition remaster, will be out much later in the year of our Sparda, 2015.
I loved DmC Devil May Cry way too much when it was first released. It was magnificently jam-packed with action, a great balance between light and dark, stylish and a reboot done right. It was also unbelievably faithful to the original games, even with the American tuning. I remember being properly afraid of what the end product would be when this game was announced. I was thankfully, massively wrong in my assumptions, as Ninja Theory blew me away with their debut effort.
Hopefully, (the pricy) sales are enough to justify a Devil May Cry 5.
