I definitely came late to the Devil May Cry party, having not played one before I began writing at Gaming Nexus. Now, it seems like all I do is review Devil May Cry games and I'm okay with that.
The newest title is Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition. It's another current-gen graphical remaster of a last-gen game. I haven't yet been impressed with how they look. Devil May Cry 4 came early on the Xbox 360 and PS3, so hopefully that means the Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition will have much more room for improvement than the two-year-old DMC: Devil May Cry.
Today's trailer shows off all five playable characters: Nero, Dante, Vergil, Trish, and Lady. As a bonus, if you pre-order, you'll receive bonus costumes for Trish and Lady. Also, if you pre-order it on PS4, you'll get a free custom theme. Yay for free stuff!
