Capcom's being pleasing chatty about PC editions of its games lately. Following word that work on Resident Evil 6's PC port could only begin after it was finished on consoles, comes news that it's outsourced the PC version of Ninja Theory's DmC Devil May Cry and it'll be released later than its console siblings.

Producer Alex Jones told Eurogamer that the alternate-timeline beat 'em up's PC version is being developed by QLOC, which has previously worked with Capcom on games including Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition and Street Fighter X Tekken.

"Because it's being developed out of house by a different developer from Ninja Theory, there are logistical things involved," Jones explained. "But the plan is to get it out shortly after the ship date for the console version."

Capcom released a few new screenshots at the Tokyo Game Show too, showing off Dante's demonic Eryx gauntlets, along with a new trailer:

          I got it because it was so cheap, my first DmC game. It's very pretty and atmospheric... I just can't get into the mechanics. I'm just bored to tears for the first two hours of the game. I really don't care about all that - combo this guy, combo that guy, rinse and repeat gameplay.

            I enjoy fighters so that may help. DMC combos are just so smooth and cool to link I get off on it same like Bayonetta or Darksiders I like the silk style combo carnage that is smooth and just keeps flowing like a peaceful stream but the water is toxic and deadly.

            I can see how it may seem repetitive try learning more combos and different way to kill the guys that is the part I enjoy or getting real high combo counts. The carnage is satisfying by it self. Just doing "lighting bolt lighting bolt" will make you board.

      Also for the record this is not considered beat em up, this is hack and slash.
