Capcom has announced they’re bringing the Devil May Cry HD Collection to modern platforms.
The remastered collection includes all three original games, and it’s coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on March 13th of next year. The collection will be available via both retail and digital storefronts, with a suggested retail of $29.99.
Fans can expect the games to still run at a silky smooth 60FPS, however all the in-game visuals have naturally been upgraded to compliment modern gaming platforms.
Here’s a quick overview of all three games:
Devil May Cry (2001)
This is the one that started it all, starring a mature and subdued Dante, which matched the mood and tempo of the game’s sense of isolation during the exploration sequences and tough-as-nails boss battles. It’s also the game that inspired my favorite TV game ad of all time:
Devil May Cry 2 (2003)
Taking place after the events of the first Devil May Cry, this sequel strives for a more cinematic look and feel to combat, changing things up in how the camera behaves, but also taking extreme care to make the animations more natural and fluid. Plus, you can unlock and play as Trish, featuring her own unique weapons and move set.
Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition (2006)
Focusing on the origins of our favorite demon hunter, this prequel features a much younger and more rambunctious Dante who cares very little about how much damage he’s doing to even his own shop as long as he can chew his pizza and kick some butt. And he runs out of pizza.
It’s worth mentioning a hefty rumor surrounding a fifth Devil May Cry game pointed to a formerly potential reveal at tonight’s The Game Awards, with Capcom and Sony Interactive Entertainment opting to reveal it at next year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo. Could we still see a reveal tonight? We’ll keep you guys posted.
