  • News Capcom Cuts DmC: Devil May Cry's Forecasts Down to Size

    Fallen angel

    You can’t blame Capcom for having high expectations – it’s just a shame that the publisher can’t seem to achieve them. After shipping one million copies of DmC: Devil May Cry across multiple platforms in January, the company has decided to slash its overall sales estimates for the reboot. It now expects the release to shift 1.2...

  • News UK Sales Charts: Devil May Cry Ascends to the Heavens

    God of war

    Dante’s new haircut didn’t prove a hindrance on DmC: Devil May Cry’s ability to conquer the UK sales charts, as the controversial (but excellent) demon slayer shot straight to the summit of the region’s best sellers list, knocking FIFA 13 off the championship spot. Perhaps potential buyers were swayed by the patriotic Union Jack...

    In a lather

    It was inevitable, wasn’t it? Capcom has revealed DmC: Devil May Cry’s first costume pack on its Japanese website, and it includes a skin that brings back protagonist Dante’s less controversial looks. For the grand sum of ¥400, you’ll be able to reunite the potty-mouthed hero with his signature red jacket and silky silver locks...

  • News Hideki Kamiya Doesn't Hate Ninja Theory's Devil May Cry Reboot

    He's a fan

    Considering former Capcom employee Hideki Kamiya’s, er, outspoken nature, we expected the original Devil May Cry director to have a few choice words for Ninja Theory’s reboot – but he’s actually rather fond of it. "I've been getting a lot of DmC: Devil May Cry tweets lately,” the Bayonetta creator revealed on

  • News Bloody Palace Turns DmC a Colourful Shade of Crimson

    Sacrifices not necessary

    Capcom heard your complaints about premium DLC. The publisher has announced that the first major add-on for Ninja Theory’s controversial Devil May Cry reboot won’t cost a penny. Dubbed ‘Bloody Palace’, the expansion will boast an additional mini-game in which Dante is forced to fight his way through 100 floors of...

  • News Cinematic Devil May Cry Trailer Makes Our Hearts Race

    Hey, good lookin'

    Ninja Theory’s stamped its mark on the Devil May Cry franchise with an epic new trailer. The slick short – which is currently showing in cinemas across North America – shows protagonist Dante picking off demons and pouting as much as humanly possible. In all honesty, we suspect we're developing a bit of crush on the hunky...

  • News Devil May Cry DLC Depicts Vergil's Downfall

    Family affairs

  • News Ninja Theory's Devil May Cry Is Not 60 FPS, It Just Feels Like It Is

    Black magic

    Ninja Theory reckons it has mastered the art of illusion. Its upcoming Devil May Cry reboot will not run at 60 frames per second – but according to director Hideaki Itsuno it will still feel like it does. "60 FPS is a speed the brain and the eye can catch up with and understand," he told Eurogamer.net. "But at 30 FPS there's a...

  • News DmC's Innovative Difficulty Levels Will Make You Cry

    Tears of blood

    For a game that’s prompted outrage over its protagonist, we suppose it makes sense for Ninja Theory’s upcoming Devil May Cry reboot to feature a difficulty tier entitled ‘Dante Must Die’. The upcoming third-person action adventure will host a slew of special modes, alongside its standard Human, Devil Hunter and Nephilim...

  • News Capcom Confirms Killer Line-Up for Eurogamer Expo

    Drop dead

    Fans of zombies, controversy and The Thing will probably want to snatch up the few remaining tickets to September’s Eurogamer Expo.

    Gatecrasher

    Most people wouldn’t even dare try to enter a club if they weren’t on the guest list, but Dante is no ordinary person. In this brand new E3 trailer, the Devil May Cry protagonist finds an interesting way to get on the dance floor – where he spends a good amount of time grooving with a gigantic demon. It’s not our idea of the...

  • News Devil May Cry Reboot Sobs into 2013

    Can you see what you’ve done to poor Dante, you nasty lot? You should probably apologise for all those nasty things you’ve said.
