Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition Launch Trailer is Full of Deadly Carnage

Priced at $24.99 and taking up around 19GB, the Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition for PlayStation 4 is now available through the PlayStation Store in North America, with Europe getting it tomorrow.

In the launch trailer, you’ll get a look at the five playable characters – Nero, Dante, Vergil, Trish, and Lady.

Running at 1080p/60fps, the Special Edition also includes improvements to the game tempo and gameplay balance, new costumes and skins compatible with in-game cutscenes, the Legendary Dark Knight Mode, and more.

Here’s some short descriptions of the new characters from Game Director Hideaki Itsuno:


Vergil, unlike the other characters, can simultaneously perform melee attacks and long-range attacks thanks to his Summoned Swords. You can enhance his fundamental attack prowess by pressing the long-range attack button (Square) during the animation for a melee attack (Triangle).


Unlike other characters throughout the DMC series, Lady is not adept at melee combat. Try to keep your distance from the enemy and focus on ranged attacks using the Square button.


To start, you’re going to want to throw the Sparda sword at enemies. This is the “Round Trip” move (R1 + Left Analog Stick Forward + Circle). You can use this to trap clusters of enemies in one location, then use the Triangle button to stack on hand-to-hand combos. The combination of Round Trip and hand-to-hand attacks is Trish’s fundamental combat strategy.
