Gameplay Overview

Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition will include all the dynamic action and style introduced in the original 2008 release, which sold more than 3 million units worldwide, plus Legendary Dark Knight Mode, gameplay improvements, and three new playable characters in addition to the previously playable Nero and Dante. With a total of five playable characters, each with completely unique playstyles, this game has the largest roster of playable characters in any Devil May Cry game to date! The bolstered roster will allow gamers to discover many new ways to execute stylish combos in this action-packed game. Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition will be available summer 2015 as a digital download for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Devil May Cry 4 tells the story of Nero, a young knight from the Order of the Sword, a mysterious group committed to the extermination of all demons. Nero is tasked with finding Dante, the mysterious assassin who murdered the head of the Order of the Sword. At the same time, more demons begin to appear throughout the city. Nero will soon come to discover the motives behind Dante’s appearance and the truth behind the intentions of the Order of the Sword.


  • Critically acclaimed action tailored for next-gen – The game now supports a 1080p resolution with striking high-res textures, while retaining the original title’s smooth 60fps on next-gen consoles.
  • Largest roster of playable characters to date – In addition to the return of Nero and Dante, now Vergil, Trish and Lady are playable with each of their own distinctly different playstyles.
    • Vergil – Based on his rendition in Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition, combined with elements of his playstyle from DmC Devil May Cry, this is the definitive version of the character. New combat mechanics are also introduced that complement his icy attitude and flawless style. Vergil is playable on any mission.
    • Lady – Playable for the first time in the series, Lady specializes in long-range, firearm-based combat. Her signature weapon, the Kalina Ann, features a grappling hook which allows her to easily traverse environments. Lady is playable on Nero’s missions.
    • Trish – Trish does away with the need for weapon switching, making skillful use of the versatile Sparda sword, her pistols, and her bare hands in a variety of inventive ways. Trish is playable on Dante’s missions.
  • Legendary Dark Knight Mode – Take on the challenge of fighting hordes of enemies all at once, putting their combat skills to the ultimate test. In this mode, enemies spawn in greater numbers and with more strength and vitality, allowing players more time to execute longer, more exciting combos.
  • Rebalanced combat system – Changes have been made to improve the game tempo and gameplay balance.
  • Bonus costumes – New costumes and skins have been added and are designed to be completely compatible with in-game cutscenes, bringing a fresh new look to the campaign.

    It would be pretty hilarious if this outsold DMC: Definitive Edition

    I see Capcom using the two releases as a test to see what way the series should go next

    I didn’t know this was coming to PC as well, I must have missed that news. I thought I wouldn’t be able to play it. Thank God.

    Vergil skipped last generation, because he needed more POWER!

    I’m a little cautious by what they mean when they say Virgil is, “Based on his rendition in Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition, combined with elements of his playstyle from DmC Devil May Cry”.

    The only way it won’t is if they don’t actually release it.
