Just putting it out there that DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition is out today on next gen consoles. As a huge warning to parents, do not buy this game for young children. There is a lot of adult language in this game as well as sexual references and lots and lots of violence. This is strictly an adult only title. I’m saying this based on experience as I have thoroughly played through the original version on PS3 so I know for a fact that this isn’t the type of game you let kids play.
However, if you’re going to be playing this yourself, away from the younglings, then by all means, I highly suggest this version of the game as the original DmC Devil May Cry was an incredibly fun game to play and I’m assuming this updated version will be much better with all the new additions to gameplay as well as being able to play as Dante’s twin brother, Vergil. There are also brand new skins for both Dante and Vergil. The game will run at 1080p and a smooth 60fps across both the PS4 and Xbox One.
Players can enjoy this ultimate offering of the critically-acclaimed action game on a retail disc or as a digital download for an MSRP of $39.99.

It also contains all previously released downloadable content, including the “Vergil’s Downfall” bonus campaign, and additional all-new features developed exclusively for this definitive release.

New to DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition, Dante’s twin brother is playable in “Vergil’s Bloody Palace,” a much requested feature by fans of the original game. In this mode, players wield the deadly sword Yamato as Vergil in a survival mode featuring arenas and enemies from the “Vergil’s Downfall” bonus campaign.
Several options have been added that provide a new layer of challenge. The modifier “Turbo Mode” heightens combat intensity by increasing gameplay speed by 20% and “Hardcore Mode” which, as a throwback to classic Devil May Cry games, raises the bar for achieving a high style ranking. In the all-new “Gods Must Die Mode,” new trials await for players ready to take on the most challenging difficulty mode in the game. Gameplay tuning and balancing have also been implemented based on fan feedback, including the addition of a fully configurable enemy lock-on option and rebalancing of the style system.
As an extra bonus, fans will also be treated to a fun visual homage with the inclusion of new skins for both Dante and Vergil inspired by classic Devil May Cry character designs.
