Ninja Theory’s take on the Devil May Cry series was bashed from the moment Dante’s new hairdo appeared on screen, and seeing a Western developer’s logo in the trailer only added fuel to the fire. The flames have died down a bit since then as the overall reception has improved, once more story details were revealed, gameplay impressions, and the (partial) return of the white hair. But there are still those who hate everything about the reimagining. Perhaps some hands on time with the game will change their mind?
Next week, on November 20th, a demo will be released on PS3 and Xbox 360. It will have two complete missions–one a boss battle–and multiple difficulty levels, a feature not often included in demos.
As well as that, Capcom has clarified a few things on the DLC chapter, Vergil’s Downfall. Not only is Vergil his own character with completely new moves, but the levels he visits are different from what appears in the main game. Oh, and it is not locked away on the disc–I think we all can be glad to hear that.
DmC: Devil May Cry releases in January of next year, but if you like the demo next week, you can preorder at GameStop to get Vergil’s Downfall free of charge ($8.99 for everyone else).
