Updated with announcement trailer.

 

Update: Capcom has released more info on the game including a $39.99 price tag and some screens.

60fps framerate, 1080p resolution on both SKUs.

-Rebalanced, repolished gameplay – Ninja Theory has thoroughly examined the entire game and nearly two years of user feedback, and has made it tighter than ever. This includes bug fixes, rebalanced combat elements, enemy behavior, the Style system, and even new settings like an optional manual lock-on.

-All DLC from the last-gen version of DmC, including costumes, weapon skins, the pre-order bonus items (Item Finder, Orb Harvester), and of course, the “Vergil’s Downfall” campaign—hours of new gameplay starring Dante’s badass brother, Vergil.

-New “Bloody Palace” mode for Vergil – By popular demand, Vergil will now have his own Bloody Palace mode, featuring sixty waves of stylish madness. As an added bonus, the timer in Bloody Palace mode (for both characters) is now a toggle-able setting.

-Turbo Mode – A perennial favorite of the Devil May Cry franchise, this mode gives a 20% speed boost to all gameplay, upgrading the game’s tempo from Adagio to—wait for it—Andante. Pretty proud of that one.

-Hardcore Mode – Designed for those looking for a classic, hardcore challenge, this setting can be toggled on and off between stages, and will affect various aspects of the game, such as Devil Trigger, AI, and the Style system.

-Gods Must Die difficulty level – Unlocked after beating Dante Must Die, this mode is insanely hard, with all enemies spawning in Devil Trigger and dealing 2.5x the normal damage. Plus: no items allowed!

-Must Style mode – For the masochistic, this mode requires that players achieve an S style rank or higher in order to deal damage to enemies.  

-New costumes for Dante and Vergil celebrating the Devil May Cry legacy.

-Updated trophies/achievements to account for the new modes.

-New leaderboards for Hardcore Mode and Vergil’s Bloody Palace.
