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.
The Devil May Cry series has made quite the tradition of its white-haired demon-slaying lead talking back to demons and then flailing about with sword and pistols to dispatch them, so we're not expecting much to change with DMC4. In fact, even though the lead is now a different person, Nero, he does seem to be almost identical to Dante, the previous "Order of the Sword" chap. The crucial different between this and the previous game will be that Nero powers up by gaining additional powers for his demonic arm, rather than collecting weapons from bosses, as per his predecessor. And he's pretty, oh so pretty. Ladies love cool Nero, etc...
Top Capcom game boffin Hiroyuki Kobayashi has also claimed that the game characters will be a little easier to control this time. It seems that demon slaying needs to be more accessible, which might speak somewhat of the series softening to be released on 360 and PC.
Anyway, here's a video of
