Capcom has just unveiled very exciting news for fans of the Devil May Cry franchise. Not only have the company announced DmC: Definitive Edition for next-gen consoles, they have also teased what could potentially be a complete refresh of the 2008 game Devil May Cry 4 with a special edition treatment.
As the name suggests, DmC: Definitive Edition is the definitive version of the original 2013 game. It will run in 1080p at 60fps, much like how the PC version is capable of. However, the refreshed game won’t simply feature only a few graphical changes. Watch the video in 720p or 1080p to enjoy 60fps playback:
The definitive edition will feature all previously released DLC, including the Vergil’s Downfall campaign, three Dante and Dante weapon skins, and the item finder. More interestingly, it will also feature a new cutscene that never made it to the original game. Capcom didn’t reveal how long or significant the new cutscene is though.
Also unveiled is Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition, which seems to feature Vergil instead of Nero, the original protagonist of the game. It’s possible that Nero is just donning on a Vergil skin, but that would be a terrible marketing move by Capcom. It’ll be disappointing if Vergil is not featured extensively in the special edition of the game; I know I’ll be.
DmC: Definitive Edition will release on 17th March 2015 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition will launch in Summer 2015 with no word on what platform it will be on.
