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? Kick ass in the comments section below.

DmC and DMC4 HD, guess they are trying to see which one sells better before they decide which series they will carry on with
I feel like I'm one of the only ones, but I loved this game. Will actually buy it again...
Oh!! I'm gonna get both!! It was a sleeper hit!! (DMC) that is. I really enjoyed my playthrough. Another go would be good. I don't mind buying a better version of games I enjoyed. Ratchet and clank, tear away, and DMC/4 are all on my nastalgia list! Lol. Can't wait!!
@get2sammyb oh I liked it too and will be getting it again but you know someone will complain about it soon
Hopefully DMC comes with a whole new story and dialogue as well...
Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition will be day 1 for me tho
@SuperSilverback to be honest of you're looking for a strong story and dialogue and you pick up any Devil May Cry game you're probably looking in the wrong place.
I'm suprised they are actually doing this as I'd assumed the series had died out, but I am really interested in how this turns out. I had a great time with DmC personally so I can only hope it rekindles some interest in the franchise and we see some new titles down the line. We can only hope.
@RawShark loved the story in 1 2 & 4. Far fetched & ridiculous as hell yeah, but real fun. DmC just took pieces of 1&2's story, pounded them together and made them less enjoyable. Combat was great tho i will give it that. Dante was a complete douche as well. Not his appearance, just his overall attitude in that game.
@RawShark oh christ i meant 1 3 & 4. And took pieces of 1 & 3 for DmC. Lets never speak of 2.....
@get2sammyb I'm with you on that one, never really liked the original Dante (He looked a bit too ridiculous for me) plus I think DmC balanced the difficulty well after 3 became too unforgiven. Ninja Theory did a great job, can't wait for Hellblade.
@SuperSilverback lol - yes let's.
Hmm I'm tempted. I enjoyed the PS3 demo of DmC. I think these rereleases are a test tto see if they should either do DmC2 or DMC 5.
I loved Devil May Cry 4...will be getting it day one.
@FullbringIchigo @get2sammyb The pair of you have more money than sense clearly.
Was a good game but, once again, it's a needless update relying on people wasting money on getting it again rather than the original which I saw for £5 in Grainger Games today. Suppose it's another nail in PS Now's coffin before it's even out, why subscribe or even have it when people will just throw full whack money at a game they want with a tiny bit of updated graphics?
@get2sammyb you are definitely not alone in that!
I will absolutely be (re)buying DmC again! Absolute class bit of action platforming, stylish and slick design!
@SuperSilverback 2? I'm pretty sure they skipped number 2 and went straight to 3 😉
@rastamadeus not really you see I haven't actually brought the game yet I had it on PS+ and I was thinking of picking it up after new year but if a remastered version with all the DLC and extra content is coming out then I might as well wait and get that
I don't want it, but I'd like to know more on what staff designed DmC's levels that was the best point of the game I'd say.
Briefly played Devil May Cry 4 last gen never played DMC, looks like another 2 games to add to my wanted list.
YOU DID THIS! You jinxed the avalanche of remasters coming to current gen platforms!
DMC. The collection is all that's missing for the moment. Because why not?
I loved DmC. I don't really want all that trolling about the title to start up again, but it looks like it's going to. Sigh...
I'll be getting the Definitive Edition and I'll enjoy it as much as I did the original. If people still hate this game just because Dante looks different then they really need to get over themselves. Plenty of other IPs get rebooted and nobody seems to complain about those cough, Tomb Raider. I have no idea why DmC seems to be the only exception.
@Diddy_kong Ninja Theory did a top job, reinventing an already epic series, without ruining it.
Tomb Raider was another top class reboot.
All that nonsense about them changing Dante, when it was Capcom that requested it in the first place!
getting 4. not getting DmC: DE
@rastamadeus Honestly it seems to have enough going for it to be a viable port. All DLC + enhanced graphics + new modes + rebalancing + not full price.
Will I get it? Maybe when the price drops. But I can see why people would be excited somewhat.
Heck, who needs backwards compatibility when they're porting the entirety of the PS3 library to the PS4 lol... Granted, you have to buy the games all over again but, at least they're available. Besides, apparently nobody cares if they have repurchase their libraries so, guess it's a win win for everyone.
I've only played 3: Special Edition, and I loved it. For years I could never put it down, and I essentially memorized the levels. I haven't played the others, and I thought about getting the HD collection to do so, since my PS2 is rather iffy when it comes to reading discs and I'd rather take a safe option.
About these two, I'd like to try them both. Yes I've heard about DmC and how mixed the reactions have been, but it's mostly seeming to be about how Dante is portrayed yet the game looks fun despite that.
I was going to say.......! Lol.
Yea DMC2 is an abomination.
Well, at least Devil May Cry 4 will finally get trophies.
@Godsire- lol how could i make such a mistake!! DMC2 makes Destinys "Story" look amazing
Now THIS is a remaster I can get behind!
I'll definitely be getting both. Turbo Mode sounds ace!
My gawd...I don't dislike "remasters" but when is it time to stop and create something new? can't believe all these developers fell for the "gaming is dying" thing and no one saw PS4's success coming...
Rented the 360 version of DMC 4 from Blockbuster back around the time it came out and never finished it so I won't mind revisiting that game, but for $40 it better be significantly upgraded.
Never did play DMC 4, so I guess this would be a good opportunity to change that. If anybody reading this has played the game, how is it?
@JaxonH. This.... This gen is becoming a remaster fest... The only remaster i will buy is the last of us on Ps4.
Devil may cry 4....... with trophies!!!!!!!!? sold!!!!! platinum ho!!
This is great news, I was fearing a $50 or $60 MSRP. Hopefully it'll drop down to $20 New retail on Amazon during Black Friday 2016.
As for DMC4: Special Edition PS4, I look forward to eventually owning and playing it as well.
