It’s not uncommon to see remastered games launching on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One as of late. With DMC Devil May Cry having flown off quite a few store shelves and onto consoles, Capcom aims to do this once more, and this time in the digital market with Devil May Cry 4 Special EDition. Coming this summer, DMC 4 SE looks to offer players a remastered version of the 2008 release with three new playable characters, the Legendary Dark Mode and even new gameplay improvements for fans to enjoy. Did we also mention that Dante’s twin brother Vergil will once more be joining him and attempting to turn all spotlights on himself? Much like before, Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition will feature Virgil as a playable character, which means he has gotten new upgrades such as new moves, graphics, and well even a flashy upgraded appearance.
But what about ladies such as Trish or Lady? For a first ever occurrence in the series, Capcom will allow players to take on the roles of these beautiful ladies.Trish will take on the role as she fights on through the role of Dante’s story while second lead lady named, well, Lady will be taking on the role of Nero in order to bring the playable character roster to five total characters in this amazing remaster. Was it also mentioned that this is the largest Devil May Cry roster to date? Oh and this is thanks to the ladies that have joined in to the console scene. This also means that players will get their hands on the Legendary Dark Knight Mode that premiered on the PC release of the title is set to land on the consoles for the first time ever when it launches, which will force players to take on the challenges of fighting enemy hordes and putting their stylish combat antics to the test.
This new reboot is looking to show off its improved graphics on both the next gen consoles and PC while running at 1080p with 60 fps. So what else does this mean besides running buttery smooth? New high-res textures while also showing off a ton of new character costumes and skins that have been made completely compatible with the in-game cutscenes. Will this be enough to pull you in? We hope so or Angels May Laugh.
