DmC: Devil May Cry Release Date Announced

Capcom today announced the DmC: Devil May Cry release date for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 is January 15, 2013 in North America and Europe. In addition, PC gamers will be happy to hear they’ll also be able to experience the action, hack ‘n slash game with a Windows PC version whose development is well underway and scheduled for release later in 2013.

Developed by critically acclaimed Cambridge based developer Ninja Theory (Heavenly Sword, Enslaved) in close collaboration with Capcom, DmC: Devil May Cry details Dante’s early years set against a contemporary backdrop. While retaining the stylish action, fluid combat and self-assured protagonist that have defined the iconic series, DmC: Devil May Cry injects a more brutal and visceral edge to the franchise.

DmC: Devil May Cry will be fully localized with voice talent in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian and in addition, Polish, Dutch, Russian, and Brazilian Portuguese languages will be supported with localized text.

Interesting tidbit for fans fearing Dante’s look changed too much:

The Dante you’ve seen so far is in human form, but you’ll get access to Dante’s angel & demon powers as well when you’re doing Dante’s Devil Trigger. Why is this interesting? Because the switch to his angel & demon side when you’re stringing together a sequence of combos is represented by Dante’s black hair changing to the more recognizable white!

Capcom also revealed new character artwork, saying:

“Kat is a former runaway that joined The Order very early in her life. She is a medium and a gifted psychic who can see into Limbo, the demon realm, but not directly interact with it in the way that Dante does. She is the right hand girl of the Leader of The Order and devotes her very life to him, often putting herself in grave danger to gather intelligence from Limbo.

There is a sweet innocence about Kat’s world view and logic, but when it comes to her specialist subject, the demon realm, she is an undoubted expert. Kat is The Order’s ‘eyes and ears’ and is tasked with guiding Dante on his mission through Limbo.”
