Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition Gameplay Video at 1080p, 60 FPS


Capcom has released a new 1080p 60 frames per second gameplay video for the upcoming Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition, which can be viewed below:

The video is a quick overview of the combat mechanics for Dante, one of the five playable characters in Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition. As the veteran protagonist, Dante is something of a jack-of-all-trades, boasting what is perhaps the deepest combat system in the entire "character action" genre. Master five fighting styles and six weapons, then master weaving them all together into insane, mind-bending combos.

Gameplay was captured in Turbo Mode, an in-game feature which increases all gameplay speed by 20%.

Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition will run at 1080p 60 FPS

Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition will run at 1080p and 60 FPS on consoles, will feature three new game modes, and three new playable characters, Virgil, Trish and Lady.

Capcom revealed the following details for the game:

  • Critically acclaimed action tailored for next-gen – The game now supports a 1080p resolution with striking high-res textures, while retaining the original title’s smooth 60fps on next-gen consoles.
  • Largest roster of playable characters to date – In addition to the return of Nero and Dante, now Vergil, Trish and Lady are playable with each of their own distinctly different playstyles.
  • Vergil – Based on his rendition in Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition, combined with elements of his playstyle from DmC Devil May Cry, this is the definitive version of the character. New combat mechanics are also introduced that complement his icy attitude and flawless style.  Vergil is playable on any mission.
  • Lady – Playable for the first time in the series, Lady specializes in long-range, firearm-based combat. Her signature weapon, the Kalina Ann, features a grappling hook which allows her to easily traverse environments. Lady is playable on Nero’s missions.
  • Trish – Trish does away with the need for weapon switching, making skillful use of the versatile Sparda sword, her pistols, and her bare hands in a variety of inventive ways. Trish is playable on Dante’s missions.
  • Legendary Dark Knight Mode – Take on the challenge of fighting hordes of enemies all at once, putting their combat skills to the ultimate test. In this mode, enemies spawn in greater numbers and with more strength and vitality, allowing players more time to execute longer, more exciting combos.
  • Rebalanced combat system – Changes have been made to improve the game tempo and gameplay balance.
  • Bonus costumes – New costumes and skins have been added and are designed to be completely compatible with in-game cutscenes, bringing a fresh new look to the campaign
