Devil May Cry (New Romantic Dante not My Chemical Romance Dante) remastered on PC

dmc-hd

Three of Capcom’s Devil May Cries are getting a treatment from Nurse Definition, in fact – 2001’s first game, 2003’s somewhat disliked Devil May Cry 2, and 2006’s special edition of Devil May Cry 3. I.e., the first of four hacky-slashy games to star the original, silver-haired, which way to to the Final Fantasy VII cosplay contest Dante, as opposed to the shorter- and darker-haired finger-flipping version from Hellblade studio Team Ninja’s 2013 DmC. They’re getting high-def and sixty frames treatment in a $30 triple-pack next May.

Wot I Think: Devil May Cry 4 – Special Edition

As the mighty PC strides into the future, a choice faces the great console developers.

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.

Have You Played… DmC: Devil May Cry?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

It’s a mark of how much I enjoyed ridiculously named reboot DmC: Devil May Cry that I’m absolutely gutted because there’s no sign of a sequel. It was the daftest game I played in 2013 and one of the deftest as well. Having alienated many fans of the series before release, by featuring a different brand of posturing pretty man than they were used to, Ninja Theory’s gloriously over the top romp seemed doomed to fail, but it’s a beautifully barmy concoction.
