The promised demo for DmC Devil May Cry will cut into Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 next Tuesday, November 20, publisher Capcom announced today. The campaign slice will pack two missions: one boss fight and one plain old kill-lots-of-men segment.

Several weapon upgrades and difficulty modes will be available for your playing pleasure, Capcom says, with the hard "Son of Sparda" mode unlocked by completing the demo. It should be enough for you to play around for a while and get a feel for it, then.

Ninja Theory's revamp of the series is coming to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on January 15, 2013. The outsourced PC edition is due to follow shortly after.

      This is made by Ninja Theory, the people who made Heavenly Sword and Enslaved people - please bear that in mind and download and support these guys. They really make some unique and cool games, despite some flaws in them.

          I'm not a DmC guy at ALL but dude, it's either buy this or no Ninja Theory - so I pretty much have to buy this silly game >:( ffffffffffffffff

            I'm sure it will be a great game (that DmC fans will hate because Donte is too much of an edgy tryhard teen.) I'll be giving it a go if the PC port isn't sloppy.

              I don't know much about the franchise - but them being limited to appeasing the original crowd I suspect will limit some of their great talent :( hence my frustration.

              I hope I'm wrong.

        Enslaved is one hell of a game. I gotta try Heavenly Sword at some point

          Voice acting and mocap is just great, story is ... pretty good but the combat, I can't recall if it has difficulty modes but if it does - choose easy........
          I posted a video the other day of one of the cutscnes (type heavenly sword hd cutscene into youtube) - generals is the one, it's crazy.

            I really didn't mind the simplicity of the gameplay. What really got me was the cinematic quality of the whole thing. Every area is so nicely designed, the emotional depth of the characters, and simply the way the camera would cut to frame the action as beautifully as possible.
            The way the platforming is confined to fixed points, and the way the combat is locked into short combos allows the game to dictate and really direct whats on screen, but you still feel in control.
            Only uncharted does it better imo
