Capcom today confirms the launch of DmC: Devil May Cry for Xbox 360 and PS3 across Europe and North America. PC gamers will be able to get their hands on the title on January 25th via European retail and global digital download.
Set in an alternate reality of the Devil May Cry series universe, players will take on the role of Dante as he navigates the treacherous Limbo defeating enemies.
It starts with Dante recovering from a hangover when he is attacked by a Hunter demon. Dante learns he is in Limbo City, a dreary city that appears calm at first, but transforms into a twisted parody of itself with demons and other monstrosities who frequently attempt to kill him whenever he is seen by the demons. After confronting a demon, Dante meets a girl named Kat who sends him to meet the leader of "The Order", an organization labeled by the press as terrorist. The Order is fighting against Limbo's demons and its leader Vergil expects Dante to join them. While fighting enemies Dante learns he is Nephilim the offspring of a demon and an angel. During the game, Dante is frequently taunted and stalked by the demon Mundus, who seeks to have Dante killed.
The new Angel and Devil Modes will shake things up a bit, giving Dante a speedy scythe and a slow but powerful Arbiter to use in place of his sword, along with granting movement abilities that can stack towards massive combos.
You can pick up the game at participating retailers and digital distributors for $59.99 - head to the DmC site for more information!
