DmC Definitive Edition & Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition Confirmed For PS4 & Xbox One

Capcom has just announced not one but two Devil May Cry games for PS4 & Xbox One, though they’re not entries but remasters. First up DmC: Devil May Cry, the one with redesigned Dante, will be releasing on March 17th for both consoles and will feature additional content over last gen’s offering. In fact Capcom has made a handy list of all the features so you can skim through it below. There are new modes and confirmation the game will run at 60FPS in 1080p on both machines.

  • Rebalanced, re-polished 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. 

Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition doesn’t have a release date yet, but is expected in the summer of 2015.

  1. Devil May Cry 4 and DMC are two totally different games! The most random bundle ever :/ Devil May Cry 1-4 would have been better. Was never a fan emo Dante.

    • …Except it’s not a bundle? Seeing as it’s like a three month difference between the release dates?

      • Yeah I mis read that but still, pointless to remaster them both.

        What’s with all the question marks though? You seem unsure about what you’re saying.

  2. The new DMC was very welcoming & made the game loveable, the best in the series for me, the much needed change to the series.

    Didn’t get to finish it on PS3 so will deffo buy it
