March 23, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

Releasing in Summer 2015 as a digital download on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition was given an announcement trailer today, showing off some of the improved gameplay and playable characters.

Running at 1080p/60fps, Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition includes the largest roster of playable characters to date. While you can still play as Nero and Dante, this new version adds Vergil, Trish, and Lady, each with 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.

Additionally, the Special Edition includes improvements to the game tempo and gameplay balance, new costumes and skins compatible with in-game cutscenes, and the Legendary Dark Knight Mode, which Capcom detailed:

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.

When Capcom announces a price and release date, we’ll let you know.

Will you be buying the Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition when it launches this Summer?
