It will include all the previous content and DLC released so far for the original DMC, and it will feature new additions and enhancements including some classic Devil May Cry nods.

    Semi related but is anyone else getting tired of rereleases of games that aren’t even 5 years old? I don’t mean goty editions or anything since that’s usually just a repacked version with whatever dlc came out but fully or partially remade games. It just feels a little lazy and annoying but people keep buying it so i guess they’ll keep doing it.

    A number of them are because the PS4 has no reverse compatibility and want people to buy the same game twice; the rest is just ‘new machine, better update something and get more money’.
    As you said ‘people keep buying it so I guess they’ll keep doing it’.
    This probably won’t sell well but the DMC4:SE will.

  • Wasn’t this game considered a flop by the fans of the series? If that’s the case, then why re-release this for the next gen.

  • King of Bros

    In a desperate bid to unflop it.
    ”g-guys,we fixed all the bad stuff. L-look at this original Dante constume, come back!”

    You mean the DmC where you use the red weapon to beat the red enemy, and the white weapon to beat the white enemy. THAT DmC…Wow and here I thought being a corporate CEO meant you have to be smart.

    Sorry for the DP but this, This made me laugh: “including optional manual lock-on for classic Devil May Cry fans.” NOW we matter? Fuck you Capcom, and fuck Ninja Theory too for this Left Wing ideology infested, unimaginative, candy-eye, pure, unadulterated bullshit of a game. And no this has nothing to do with his Donta’s hair you half ass hacks.

    i only care about DMC4:SE give us more detalis on that.

  • bdp

    It just seems ridiculous to spend $400+ to play the same game twice even with whatever upgrades they add.

  • Agt_Pendergast

    Oh geez, DmC’s Vergil looks ridiculous in the classic getup.

  • Squat Beefthrust

    If I had to guess, I’d say Capcom only has the money, willingness or attention span to develop one new Devil May Cry game, so they’re releasing this and DMC4:SE within such a short period of each other to see which sells better and which will get a sequel.

    Meh, there isn’t anything wrong with this in my view, rereleases aren’t aimed at people who already bought it, more at people who skipped it the first time or didn’t play the DLC because whatever reason. There’s nothing wrong with making a game available on more systems, and it’s cheap and easy to do.

    Look at Nintendo with the WiiU, two of the best games on it are VC games that aren’t readily available on anything else (Metroid Prime Trilogy and Earthbound,) and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed both and would’ve never played them otherwise.

  • bdp

    Earthbound is not only hard to find it’s also pretty old. Even metroid prime is almost 13 years old. I use VC for plenty of games so i’m fine with rereleases of classic titles. I only have a problem with games that are still fairly recent getting treated this way. Now sure people that never played it will get it but what about the ones that did play it before? wouldn’t some of them feel like they got shorted? If developers keep doing this often enough for newer games it may reach the point that people don’t even bother getting a game the first time around because they expect it to get a upgraded version later on. Now you can argue that game of the year editions do this but those are slightly different since all they really do with those is add the dlc that already got released and could probably be bought on sale. At the very least i think some sort of discount for first time buyers would be nice if they’re interested in buying the rereleases.

  • That makes sense, but I am afraid that DMC will get more sales. In todays world, the easier the game = more sales. Tomb Raider Anniversary sold less then TR: Angel Of Darkness because it was a little harder then TR: Legend.

    Unless they put DMC and DMC4:SE on a level difficulty setting playing field, I think it will come to DMC getting the continuation for a series.

    Sad but true.
