It’s about time! Capcom has announced a Devil May Cry HD Collection for BOTH PS3 and Xbox 360! It will be released in early 2012 at a price point of $40!
This will mark the first time that the Devil May Cry trilogy will be available for Xbox 360 gamers!
The collection brings together the first three Devil May Cry games: Devil May Cry 1, Devil May Cry 2 and Devil May Cry 3: Dante’s Awakening Special Edition (NOT the original edition, for those hardcore out there).
Devil May Cry is one of Capcom’s most successful and critically acclaimed franchises, having sold more than 10 million units worldwide. Featuring Dante, one of the most iconic video game characters of the last decade, Devil May Cry HD Collection will be full of the award-winning gameplay and style that the series has become known for with the addition of stunning HD graphics, bonus content and support for Trophies and Achievements.
Debuting in 2001, Devil May Cry 1 immediately redefined the action genre, achieving a metacritic of 94. The title captured gamers’ hearts through its stylish, over-the-top action and bad boy anti-hero Dante. Son to a human mother and a devil father named Sparda, the half-demon Dante uses his innate abilities and the powers of ancient demons to fight a one-man war against the forces of darkness and save humanity from damnation.
The follow up to Devil May Cry, Devil May Cry 2 centers on Dante and his new devilishly agile partner Lucia in their fight to defeat a horde of evil and a man hell-bent on achieving supreme power. Devil May Cry 2 released in 2003 and was praised for its variety of environments, additional playable character, new ideas and updated control scheme, but panned for its open environments, lack of combat, changes made to Dante’s character and short length.
Released in 2006, Devil May Cry 3: Dante’s Awakening Special Edition is the definitive edition of Devil May Cry 3 featuring a number of enhancements, including the opportunity to play as Dante’s twin brother, Vergil, as well as the addition of Bloody Palace Mode and Turbo Mode.
