DmC Devil May Cry release set for January 2013
DmC Devil May Cry will release for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on January 15, 2013 in North America and Europe, Capcom announced today. Development for a PC version of the game is "well underway" and scheduled for a release later in 2013.
Although this will be the newest installment in the popular franchise, DmC Devil May Cry takes a look back at Dante's early years set against a contemporary backdrop. DmC Devil May Cry will still retain the stylish action, fluid combat, and self-assured protagonist, but will offer a more "brutal and visceral" edge to the franchise.
DmC Devil May Cry's main protagonist, Dante, features a new, original look that was actually met with negative fan reception; many referred to him as "Emo Dante". Despite the backlash, Capcom insisted they would not change the design as it fits within the game's setting.
In other DmC Devil May Cry news, Capcom also revealed some details about Kat, a new character to the series.
Kat is a former runaway that joined The Order very early in her life. She is a medium and a gifted psychic who can see into Limbo, the demon realm, but not directly interact with it in the way that Dante does. She is the right hand girl to the Leader of The Order and devotes her life to him, often putting herself in grave danger to gather intelligence from Limbo.
There is a sweet innocence about Kat’s world view and logic, but when it comes to her specialist subject, the demon realm, she is an undoubted expert. Kat is The Order’s ‘eyes and ears’ and is tasked with guiding Dante on his mission through Limbo.
DmC Devil May Cry will be fully localized with voice talent in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian and in addition, Polish, Dutch, Russian, and Brazilian Portuguese languages will be supported with localized text.
