Wot I Think: Devil May Cry 4 – Special Edition

As the mighty PC strides into the future, a choice faces the great console developers. Support the biggest and most powerful platform on the planet or miss out on sales: seems like an easy decision, but the results can be questionable. When considering Capcom’s Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition [official site], for example, exhibit A would be DMC4’s original PC port in 2008, a straight-from-console affair that could only be controlled with a pad. Great game plus great hardware doesn’t always equal great experience. So, with the Special Edition now launched, does this devil finally get his due?

Slash-o! Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition Released

What would make The Devil cry? I’ve always thought him more the sort to shout and rage and punch a hole in the kitchen wall, but after he storms out the house to the pub I can see him returning at 2am weeping and sobbing. “I can’t help myself,” he says. “I’ve got a problem,” his cracked voice lets out. “I don’t mean to hurt you. I’m sorry. I just… why those filthy apes? I can’t… what was wrong with me?” And god, you’re tired, you are so tired of hearing this, always the same.

But I bet he’d be well cheered by the action of Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition [official site], which launched last night. Next time he’s slumped in front of Songs of Praise, his claws digging deeper and deeper into the armrest, turn the telly over to that and watch his crooked smile lift.

From Zero To Nero: Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition

KLONK

We might have missed out on the Definitive Edition of DMC: Devil May Cry on PC but the Special Edition of 2008’s Devil May Cry 4 is coming our way. It’ll arrive on June 24th, a few days after the console release, but will include all of the same goodies. Those goodies include a new “Vergil game mode”, allowing players to control Dante’s devilish brother, as well as a mode that replaces the original game’s controllable characters (Nero and Dante) with Lady and Trish.

Uh-Oh It’s The P Word

Possibly a bittorrent metaphor

Right: I’m going to mention piracy. That isn’t an open invitation to go absolutely barking, spitting crazy, okay?

So, lately it’s looked as though Capcom – traditionally very much a console publisher – have really been cosying up to the PC. The Devil May Cry 4 port was pretty slick as these things go, and soon we’re getting Street Fighter IV. The dark times are over!

But there’s a problem.

Devil May Cry: PC Gamers May Download Demo

Fucking dogs
Because – much like big girls – PC Gamers don’t cry. Anyway – due to being confused and drunk a lot – in fact, I’m drunk right now – we didn’t post it earlier this week. We make our amends by posting this RIGHT NOW. Martin Lee was the first to mention that there’s a demo available for Devil May Cry 4. There’s two versions there, one just under 500Mb and one just under 900Mb. But I have no idea what each one does, due to the site being written in exciting foreign. Well – I do now, as Gamershell makes it clear that the smaller one is a benchmark and the other is the actual demo. Hell, with 300Mb difference, download the bloody demo already. Devil May Cry is a videogame and Leigh Alexander likes it and not just because it features bosoms.

Apparently.

Devil May Cry 4 Enhanced For PC


Capcom’s demon-taunting sword-‘n’-shooter isn’t traditionally a game that we desktop-box types to get particularly excited about, but Devil May Cry 4 really did have some of the most ludicrous scenes in any videogame, and hey, the sword action isn’t so bad either. The good news is that it’s going to be enormously scalable on PC, allowing folks with higher end 3D cards and multi-core CPUs to run amped-up game modes, as illustrated by the cramped fight going on that screenshot.

Turbo mode will turn up the action to insane speeds, while Legendary Dark Knight Mode will harness advanced PC processing power and fill the screen with an unbelievable number of enemies for extra difficulty. Moreover, familiar enemies from the console versions will show-up in new locations in the PC version.

Devil May Cry 4

Last year I had quite a bit of fun playing Capcom’s hack ‘n’ quip demon-slaying game, Devil May Cry 3, on the PC. Needless to say there were guffaws from DMC console fans about its conversion to PC (and to the Old Man’s Method of mouse and keyboard) but it worked. It must have sold a few copies too, because Devil May Cry 4 has been confirmed for PC, albeit confirmed for an indistinct time after the 360 and PS3 versions.

More on foppish demon slaying after the jump.
