All Articles: DMC: Devil May Cry
Three new games have been added to the Xbox Games Store today including a hand-painted new “Metroidvania,” an enhanced re-release of a decisive Xbox 360 favorite, and the third episode of Capcom’s first episodic project (I think it’s their first, please correct me if I’m wrong).
Ori and the Blind Forest, “a visually stunning action-platformer,” is the debut title from Moon Studios. The game tells the story of a creature that has been tasked with saving the very forest itself by the missing Spirit Tree. The game is completely hand-painted and is now available on the Xbox One.
Less serene are this week’s offerings from Capcom. The publisher has added two new games to the Xbox Games Store including DMC: Devil May Cry Definitive Edition, an Xbox One remake of the Ninja Theory-developed reimagining of the franchise; and Resident Evil Revelations 2: Judgment (Xbox 360, Xbox One), the third episode of the second entry in the Resident Evil Revelations sub-series.
More details about all three games can be found after the break. (more…)
The devil is in the details in this week’s PlayStation Store update. First up, the devil you know is DMC: Devil May Cry Definitive Edition, which has been prettied up and remade for the PS4 by Capcom and Ninja Theory. Capcom got a lot of flak for giving DMC to an outside development team, but this re-release shows the publisher thinks the gaming community might have turned around on it in the last few years.
This week’s devil you don’t know is Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, Dennaton’s sequel to their 2012 top-down shooter. Everything in Hotline Miami 2 is bigger than its predecessor and it will mark the end of the Hotline Miami “Saga.” Hotline Miami 2 is part of Song’s Spring Fever promotion and it’s a Cross-Buy game on the PS3, PS4, and PS Vita. A slightly less distressing top-down game, the cute and cuddly Scram Kitty DX, is also available as a Cross-Buy game on the PS4 and PS Vita.
Finally this week, the third episode of Capcom’s Resident Evil Revelations 2 project, Judgment, is available to download on the PS3 and PS4. This time, “Claire and Moira search for a way into the Overseer’s tower.”
The second week of March steps up the number of new releases considerably from last week’s solitary new game. Here’s what gamers will be able to discover on store shelves this week:
- Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea (PS3), the latest Atelier RPG from Koei Tecmo and Gust.
- Code Name: STEAM (3DS), Nintendo’s portable strategy game that features a team of superheroes assembled by Abe Lincoln himself.
- DMC: Devil May Cry – Definitive Edition (PS4, Xbox One), an enhanced re-release of the rather ignored most recent entry in the Devil May Cry series.
- Sniper Elite III: Ultimate Edition (PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360), an enhanced re-release of Rebellion’s sniper sequel.
A few additional new releases from this week can be found after the break. (more…)
Capcom is jumping back on the remaster bandwagon with the announcement that DMC: Devil May Cry and Devil May Cry 4 will be released for the PS4 and Xbox One in 2014.
A “Definitive Edition” of Ninja Theory’s DMC: Devil May Cry will arrive first, on March 17 to be exact, with a variety of new features. First and foremost, the game will include all of DMC’s DLC (including the “Vergil’s Downfall” expansion) as well as new content exclusive to the new-gen re-release. A variety of new gameplay modes will also be included such as the brand new wave-based Vergil’s Bloody Palace Mode, and a trio of new difficulty levels (Hardcore Mode, Must Style Mode, and Gods Must Die Mode). Finally, every piece of DMC: Devil May Cry content will run at 60 frames per second with 1080p visuals.
As for the PS4/Xbox One “Special Edition” of Devil May Cry 4, it’ll be available sometime in the Summer and Capcom has promised to reveal more details about its pending release soon.
Call of Duty: Black Ops II is the bestselling game of the month for a third month in a row, according to the NPD Group’s January 2013 report of retail game sales.
Capcom’s Devil May Cry reboot, DMC: Devil May Cry, was the only new release to crack the top ten. The game, the first created by UK developer Ninja Theory, clawed its way to sixth place.
Here’s the complete top ten for the month:

Sony has added five games to the PlayStation Store and… you’ll never believe it… one of them is a PSP game!
Corpse Party: Book of Shadows comes to Sony’s other handheld and “expands and elaborates” on the 2011 horror game. If you like adventure games and you haven’t upgraded to a Vita yet (or even if you have), it might be one to check out. Also available this week is two very different PS3 games focused on total destruction.
DMC: Devil May Cry is a fast-paced prequel to Dante’s battle against the demonic hordes. There’s gunplay and swordplay and other playful methods of giving a boot to the face of the denizens of Hell. On the other hand, Angry Birds Trilogy is all about flinging fat birds at even fatter pigs and destroying their houses. And you don’t even have to huff or puff.
Finally this week is a pair of PS2 classics. The underrated (but loved by many) Siren and the underrated (but loved by many) Disgaea: Hour of Darkness.
2013’s slim release schedule continues this week as only two new titles will make their way into stores. And only one of them can technically be called “new.”
Also available this week is BioShock: Ultimate Rapture Edition, which includes the original BioShock, BioShock 2, and every piece of downloadable content. It too will be released for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
That’s it! See you next week.
Capcom added a DMC: Devil May Cry demo to the PlayStation Store and Xbox Live Marketplace on Tuesday. Have you had a chance to check it out yet? If not, maybe the trailer above will sway you.
DMC: Devil May Cry will be available for the PS3 and Xbox 360 on January 15, 2013 with a PC version scheduled for release later in 2013.
