Devil May Cry 4 Summary
Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition reportedly on its way to PC this June, introduces three new playable characters
Capcomthat Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition was on the way to next-gen consoles in December last year, but they were pretty coy on the details.
Some fresh information has now surfaced courtesy of Japanese gaming blog Esuteru (thanks,), suggesting that a PC version is on the way this June, and revealing three new playable characters.
Capcom has announced that gamers who preorder the PC version of Resident Evil 6 will get Resident Evil 5 and its DLC for free.
The initial target for sales had been 2 million units for Ninja Theory's DmC: Devil May Cry by the end of this fiscal year for Capcom, but that looks most unlikely as the publisher drops it to 1.2 million.
So far around one million has been shipped. Despite receiving a top spot in charts, DmC has failed to at least match sales figures for Devil May Cry 4 at launch, achieving just a third in the UK.
Bayonetta's Hideki Kamiya from Platinum Games has said how big teams working a project don't mean things will turn out great. He cited the big number of devs on Capcom's Devil May Cry 4.
"Didn't help them, did it?" said Kamiya-san. The Platinum co-founder previously worked at Capcom on some of their big franchises like Resident Evil, Devil May Cry and Viewtiful Joe.
A live-action feature film starring Capcom's 10 million unit strong franchise Devil May Cry is in the works, with Los Angeles-based Screen Gems handling the project.
Screenwriter Kyle Ward, who also wrote 'Hitman 2' and 'Kane & Lynch', is penning the script for Dante's arrival on the silver screen. Resi Evil did well so why not?
