  • Players will take on the role of a young Dante, journey across the fictitious Limbo City and hack their way through a demonic infestation!

    DmC: Devil May Cry is the upcoming action, hack n slash game in Capcom’s Devil May Cry series, developed this time by Ninja Theory, for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 platforms.

    Though no specific release date has been announced, it is due to emerge sometime in 2012.

    A -very nervous looking- panel of DmC Producers talk about the new trailer revealed at E3 and what we can expect from the new title in the series!

    Get a look at Capcom’s revamp of the Devil May Cry franchise in this latest gameplay for DMC.

    And the hacking and slashing continues in this ‘special’ new trailer for DmC: Devil May Cry, featuring extended footage from the Tokyo Game Show.

    Key Features of DmC: Devil May Cry

    Here is a list of key features that will be available in Ninja Theory’s DmC: Devil May Cry based on news and announcements made so far.

    Devil Trigger
    In the newest title, Dante can transform with an updated version of the classic Devil Trigger; using it can slow time down, reduce gravity and change his hair and clothing color.

    Dante’s Sword
    Dante can transform his sword into an axe, scythe and grappling hook, which works similarly to Nero’s Snatch ability. Several more weapons have been confirmed in game including two different sets of pistols. Ebony and Ivory will return.

    Core Changes
    In this game, Dante is half angel, half demon, which opens up different game modes such as Angel, Demon, (both activated by trigger buttons) and normal.
    The game will also focus much more on environment. The city itself can be dragged into Limbo; in this place, roads lead to nowhere, alleyways close off and locations morph and distort with shocking regularity.

    Creative Combos
    Dante’s weapons and abilities will be interchangeable, which allows for interchangeable combos and attacks! There will be a bigger emphasis on the aerial combat too. For example, players can juggle enemies in the air whilst stringing together long and varied combos.

    Returning Elements
    Red Orbs will be making a comeback in DmC and so too will the “Style Meter”. Instead of being represented by a grade however, the Style Meter will shine through the soundtrack; background music will increase in volume, beat and style depending on how the player is doing. The music itself will, once again, be of the grunge/metal genre.

    Check out the debut trailer!
