Capcom says DmC: Devil May Cry feels like it's 60 FPS (but it isn't)

DmC: Devil May Cry is going to be locked at 30 frames per second on consoles, a shift from DMC4's buttery 60 fps. But Capcom has told fans it will still look silky-smooth, thanks to some animation and control trickery that fools your eyes into feeling like it's seeing more frames than it is.

DmC: Devil May Cry adds one hit kill difficulty mode

How hardcore will DmC: Devil May Cry be? Maybe a bit too much, if you ask us.

As in previous Devil May Cry games, DmC has a number of difficulty modes you can unlock after completing the game. In addition to the standard modes (Human, Devil Hunter, and Nephilim), you'll be able to challenge yourself in these special controller-breaking modes.

DmC: Devil May Cry demo coming to consoles

DmC Devil May Cry may have a divisive new haircut and gaunt look, but fans will likely shrug and accept it so long as it controls like classic Devil May Cry. We liked what we've played so far, but you'll also be able to get a taste with a demo coming some time before its planned 2013 release.

DmC: Devil May Cry retailer-exclusive pre-order bonuses revealed

DmC: Devil May Cry retailer-exclusive pre-order bonuses revealed

DmC: Devil May Cry being a "AAA" title, of course it was going to have pre-order bonuses. Depending on which retailer you purchase the game from, you'll get some "souped-up" bonus weapons and "helpful items."

For example, GameStop is offering the "Samurai Pack," which transforms Dante's shotgun, scythe, and axe into "solid Samurai devastation." Whatever that means. You'll also get some upgrade points to instantly upgrade weapons and combos at the beginning of the game.

DmC: Devil May Cry preview

DmC: Devil May Cry preview

DmC: Devil May Cry has gotten a lot of flak from fans for attempting to reboot the franchise with a new developer, and a new Dante. Yes, he's younger and has black hair. But having played the new DmC, it's hard to think of it as a reboot. It plays so much like the previous games that it might as well have been called Devil May Cry 5.

For example, you can slash into an enemy, starting a simple combo. Then, you can launch him into the air, pull yourself up and start slashing midair. As you slowly plummet, you can then start shooting at another enemy on the ground, and then swing your swords down as you crash atop the monster. All the while, a combo meter fills up on the top right of the screen. As you vary your moves without taking a hit, it moves from a Dull to Awesome. Doesn't that sound exactly like a Devil May Cry game to you?

DmC: Devil May Cry delayed to 2013, coming to PC

And they keep on dropping like flies. Recent weeks have seen a number of high-profile games delayed out of 2012. Ninja Theory's upcoming Devil May Cry reboot is the latest title to move into 2013. Perhaps publishers have only just accepted that the world isn't going to end this year?

DmC: Devil May Cry gameplay trailers galore

If you look at it one way, a pair of new DmC: Devil May Cry gameplay trailers show the new Dante stabbing faces and jumping around hostile animate architecture. From another angle, though, it can be seen as a powerful metaphor for how youth violence and vandalism are tearing our cities apart. The wonders of interpretation, ladies and gentlemen!

DmC: Devil May Cry set in a parallel universe

Dante's next foray into demon slaying is bringing a number of significant twists and turns to the Devil May Cry series. While the upcoming DmC: Devil May Cry is not a complete reboot of the franchise, Capcom is calling it a "rebirth."

While many fans have been upset about the new look for Dante, perhaps it will be comforting to know that Ninja Theory's game takes place in a different, parallel universe.

DmC: Devil May Cry TGS trailer shows off Demon Trigger

Ever since Capcom and Ninja Theory revealed the redesigned Dante for DmC: Devil May Cry, fans have been up in arms. Every trailer released since has tried to convince gamers: hey, maybe things aren't too different, okay? In this new trailer from Tokyo Game Show, we see "emo Dante" doing what he does best: unleashing a flurry of combo-able attacks. You'll even see the Devil Trigger mode, where Dante's hair turns white, and his jacket becomes bright red. Is that enough to appease the naysayers?

Unannounced Devil May Cry game needs fan art

Unannounced Devil May Cry game needs fan art

To celebrate the upcoming 10 year anniversary of its Devil May Cry series, Capcom has asked fans to submit art based on the franchise to be featured in a new, unannounced game.

For inspiration, the blog post on Capcom-Unity.com notes: "Think about all the iconic characters from Dante, Nero, Vergil, Trish and Lady and all the fantastic weapons they have wielded." Based on the franchise's anniversary--and recent industry trends--it's possible the unannounced Devil May Cry game will be a collection of the first three games in the series. If so, perhaps it will be in glorious HD, where Dante's hairdo (as seen above) won't be the subject of such fan ridicule.
