I NEED MORE BONUS CHARACTERS! Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition is going to be a hard sell for Capcom. As good as the game is, it’s also a bit long in the tooth. It’s one of the very first big games to have hit the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 era when it was in its infancy, and its visuals have long since been overclocked to hell and back by the PC crowd.

Trish is designed to be a beginner-friendly character in Devil May Cr 4: Special Edition. Unlike the others, her arsenal of weapons don’t need to be switched out, as her combos incorporate a variety of attacks and moves.

Vergil is described as a combination of his Devil May 3 Special Edition and DmC: Devil May Cry forms.

Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition is coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One later this year, in time for a USA summer.
