DmC Definitive Edition PS4

Not had enough next-gen re-releases yet? Good, because Capcom has announced that it’s bringing the definitive edition of last year’s DmC: Devil May Cry to the PlayStation 4 from 17th March in Europe and North America. The port will be followed sometime in the summer by Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition – an upgraded version of the series’ famous PlayStation 3 sequel.

Much like Dante in the divisive game, it sounds like Ninja Theory’s really going to town with its next-gen upgrade. DmC: Definitive Edition will run in 1080p at 60 frames-per-second – apparently, the “feel” of 60FPS wasn’t enough – and will include enhanced textures, character models, and cinematics. It will also ship with all of the original’s downloadable content.

That’s not all, though, as the studio is tossing in a couple of extra skins, as well as a Turbo Mode – which will enhance the speed of the title by 20 per cent – and a Hardcore Mode, designed to rebalance the gameplay for seasoned pros. On top of that, it’s also retuning the whole affair, adding in a few new difficulties – and even integrating an extra cut-scene.

The title will retail for $39.99/€39.99 when it deploys next year, which seems reasonable to us considering the sheer amount of work that’s going into this. There’s no word on a price for the aforementioned Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition just yet. Are you interested in playing through these critically acclaimed character action games again?
