In a turn of events that isn’t frequently seen, the remastering of the re-imagining of Devil May Cry, DmC, is getting its release date moved up instead of back. DmC: Definitive Edition was originally slated to see a March 17th release and will now be hitting shelves on the 10th. Just a week early, but that’s better than nothing.
The news came to us by way of the Ninja Theory (DmC’s developer) Twitter.
As with any remastering, there will be a few changes for fans and those who missed the original release to look forward to. Along with the expected updated textures, 1080p resolution, and 60 fps experience, players can look forward to all of the DmC DLC which includes the Vergil’s Downfall story chapter and tons of skins for Dante and your weapons so you can show off your own style.
Fans of the original also have some backend features to look forward to in terms of several balance tweaks and some features that the community asked for (such as manual lock-on).
Look out for DmC: Definitive Edition on shelves for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles and prepare your wallet to be $40 lighter.
When DmC first released I never really gave it the time of day. They changed up Dante a bit too much in my opinion so I was stubborn and didn’t get into it. Now that some time has passed, I’m not quite sure why they chose to remake DmC but I might give it a chance this go ‘round. I can’t overlook the all-in-one package here with the DLC and such. Admittedly, I’m still not willing to shell out $40, as I have other titles I need to budget for, but give it a few months to drop to around $20 and it’ll be a real contender for a spot in my gaming library. As a final note, we rarely see release dates move up. I know it’s only a week, but Ninja Theory definitely can’t afford to have any hitches when DmC re-releases or this change in dates will likely bite them.
