Another one bites the 2012 dust. Capcom has announced that DMC: Devil May Cry, the long-awaited reboot of Dante’s early demon days, will be released for the PS3 and Xbox 360 on January 15, 2013. A PC version was also announced, which will be released later in 2013.
In addition to announcing the release date, Capcom confirmed that DMC: Devil May Cry will make a big splash at this year’s E3 Expo. The publisher also revealed a new character, Kat:
Kat is a former runaway that joined The Order very early in her life. She is a medium and a gifted psychic who can see into Limbo, the demon realm, but not directly interact with it in the way that Dante does. She is the right hand girl to the Leader of The Order and devotes her life to him, often putting herself in grave danger to gather intelligence from Limbo.
There is a sweet innocence about Kat’s world view and logic, but when it comes to her specialist subject, the demon realm, she is an undoubted expert. Kat is The Order’s “eyes and ears” and is tasked with guiding Dante on his mission through Limbo.
See just how “sweet” and “innocent” Kat is after the break (I swear, someone needs to buy Capcom a dictionary).
