It seems like multi-platform Capcom releases are all the hype this Christmas season. The Japanese video game giant announced a Mega Man X series multi-platform re-release for 2018 at the Mega Man 30th Anniversary celebration. Now the company is at it again, and this time Devil May Cry is the lucky subject!
While the experience that was DmC: Devil May Cry released on PC back in 2013, the rest of the games in the franchise have not yet been remastered. In fact, a “High Definition” collection released a year before that, in 2012, for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. As you might imagine, the “HD” back then meant a crispy clear 720p, at best. Today, however, “HD” takes on a whole new meaning.
While it has not yet been revealed if the Devil May Cry HD Collection will actually be upgraded to Ultra-high Definition (UHD), I bet we can expect details in this regard in the near future. With that said, Capcom has released a few screenshots for the collection.
Along with the announcement, Capcom also confirmed that the three games in the new collection will indeed be the same games featured in the last. This means fans will get HD re-releases of Devil May Cry, Devil May Cry 2, and Devil May Cry 3: Dante’s Awakening Special Edition.
Unfortunately Devil May Cry 4, and DmC: Devil May Cry will not get the re-release treatment. Interestingly, Capcom made the announcement just as rumours surfaced that a new Devil May Cry game might be in the making. In fact, the rumours seem to originate straight from some leaked documents.
The new Devil May Cry HD Collection will release on 13 March 2018. It will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows. If you are interested, the collection will set you back just $29,99 USD (~R500 ZAR).
