For those of you who didn’t receive enough hackey-slashey fun from Bayonetta, be prepared for DmC: Devil May Cry – Definitive Edition and Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition. Very recently announced over on Capcom Unity, Gregman dropped the news that both games will be coming to the PS4 and XB1 next year. In his post, here are the details he provided for DmC:
DmC Definitive Edition comes to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 17th, for $39.99. It will feature the following:
-60fps framerate, 1080p resolution on both SKUs.
-Rebalanced, repolished gameplay – Ninja Theory has thoroughly examined the entire game and nearly two years of user feedback, and has made it tighter than ever. This includes bug fixes, rebalanced combat elements, enemy behavior, the Style system, and even new settings like an optional manual lock-on.
-All DLC from the last-gen version of DmC, including costumes, weapon skins, the pre-order bonus items (Item Finder, Orb Harvester), and of course, the “Vergil’s Downfall” campaign—hours of new gameplay starring Dante’s badass brother, Vergil.
-New “Bloody Palace” mode for Vergil – By popular demand, Vergil will now have his own Bloody Palace mode, featuring sixty waves of stylish madness. As an added bonus, the timer in Bloody Palace mode (for both characters) is now a toggle-able setting.
-Turbo Mode – A perennial favorite of the Devil May Cry franchise, this mode gives a 20% speed boost to all gameplay, upgrading the game’s tempo from Adagio to—wait for it—Andante. Pretty proud of that one.
-Hardcore Mode – Designed for those looking for a classic, hardcore challenge, this setting can be toggled on and off between stages, and will affect various aspects of the game, such as Devil Trigger, AI, and the Style system.
-Gods Must Die difficulty level – Unlocked after beating Dante Must Die, this mode is insanely hard, with all enemies spawning in Devil Trigger and dealing 2.5x the normal damage. Plus: no items allowed!
-Must Style mode – For the masochistic, this mode requires that players achieve an S style rank or higher in order to deal damage to enemies.
-New costumes for Dante and Vergil celebrating the Devil May Cry legacy.
-Updated trophies/achievements to account for the new modes.
-New leaderboards for Hardcore Mode and Vergil’s Bloody Palace.
-Next-gen standard sharing functionality – This may be a given, but consider the potential! Every single person who owns the game and has an internet connection will be able to upload combo videos or stream the game live.
Along with this announcement, he also provided a trailer and multiple screenshots.
And, to end this whole set of announcements, Greg stated that DMC4: Special Edition will arrive in Summer 2015 and ended it all with a teaser image.
