For the uninitiated, the original Devil May Cry series brought forward the idea of playing with SSStyle; withbreakneck speeds, intricate and acrobatic combos, perfect controls, and an intense presentation filled with the Capcom-esque grit reflecting the trends of the time, Devil May Cry is a direct influence to many of today's similar titles.
Seven years after the original launch, Capcom is bringing back Devil May Cry 4 - the publisher's first PS3 title with Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition. On the PS4 and Xbox ONE,with a treatment similar to their recent revival withResident Evil: HD Remaster, DMC4: SE will have new game modes, gameplay and visual improvements, and perhaps the most exciting aspect for fans, the largest playable roster in any DMC game yet!
Speaking of the roster, fan favoriteVergil is playable, with his appearance based on his rendition from Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening Special Edition. Gameplay wise, a newmechanic is introduced known as"Concentration", which complements Vergil's iajutsu style rewarding players with progressively stronger attacks when fights are executed calmly without the dependency of button mashing. This combined with the "Grim Trick" teleport ability, will not only challenge veterans and newcomers alike, but offer a distinct experience separating Vergil from both DMC mains Dante and Nero.
Two other exciting additions to the roster once again channel fan favorites, and each character has a distinct playstyle which adds to the replayability common to the Devil May Cry Series: Trish and Lady!
While Trish is a returning playable character, her biggest change is the removable of her previous style of weapon switching, and now instead uses the Sparda sword in a multitude of ways without complex button combinations; although this may sound simple, it is far more difficult to excelwith simplicity, and this newplay style will be something to look forward to.
For veterans, Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition will see the debut of Lady as a playable character, and her focus is on long-range fighting; this emphasis on firearms will also introduce an entirely alternate way of tackling the many foes seen in this frenetic title.
Along with all the improvements and additions, extra features see the implementation of the "Legendary Dark Knight Mode," which was missing from the original PS3 version; players will be facingconstant pressure as this mode places them against a monstrous amount of enemies - only those with adept skills or veterans looking for an even more extreme experience will find solace here.
Finally, expect to see a veritable wardrobe of new costumes for each character, compatible with in-game cut scenes as usual with Capcom titles, just for that added visual freshness!
Look forward to one of most exciting series of our time, with Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition - releasing this SSSummer!

I haven't played it yet， but we all knew how good DMC is！
This game now looks and plays better than it ever did!
Why go for a download copy when you can own this classic and give it pride of place in your PS4 collection?
(The game title on the spine of the game is in Japanese, too - adding to the coolness factor!)
Speedy shipping and great packaging from Play-Asia. My first of many orders!
I had originally played this on the Xbox 360, around my 14th birthday. As a matter if fact, DMC4 was my first ever next-gen I had ever played (for that time at least). Now that I know there is a Special Edition, I HAVE TO GET IT!! I had originally intended to play the US version, but my mobile hotspot was waaaaay too slow...mostly because I had used up the data getting the initial data downloaded, and thinking it was a compressed file, allowing the game to install. And now I know, it was a stupid move on my part. I had no idea that they had physical copies of the game, but they were for Japan and Asian regions only. (Inner monolouge: JAPAN AND ASIA GET ALL OF THE GOOD STUFF (not dissing them in anyway-)) But I have also realized that PS4 systems don't have region lock, THANK SPARDA!! (Order of the Sword reference there) I have yet to recieve the game, but I have played the first mission though, so here is what I have to say, until I recieve the game.
On scale from 1 to 10
Gorgeous. Absolutely gorgeous. You can actually see all of the detail that they put into the game, considering that this is an HD remaster, like they did with the REmake. The 60 FPS in gameplay is more natural, but I NEVER expected them to be in the cutscenes. It's more natural and smooth that the original
Kind of a shame they didn't add any new songs (from what I know. The only song I was listening to was the opening theme and the tutorial boss). But that doesn't matter because the soundtrack STILL KICKS SO MUCH A**!! *inner metal(?) head activate*
It's just like with the original DMC4, but the odd placement of the Taunt and the Pause button on the touchpad is...odd, but I'll get used to it. But Vergil and Nero are my two main characters that I play as....well, count Vergil out until I give this review an edit (if they do it here-). All if that aside, gameplay is as it should be, SSStylish as always. One of my main fears about the SE is that it might get repetitive though, but there are a whooooooole lot of options that I doubt that it'll happen- And trying to figure out good combos to perform is always on your mind when in combat. There are some camera issues, but I don't really care about that stuff... In short: Smoking Sick Stylish!!!!!!
The DMC storyline NEVER MAKES SENSE WITH ME!! -shoots self-
HA, just kidding. Yes, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense at times, but if you dive into it deep enough, you'll find a great story, which I will NOT SPOIL HERE.
All in all (pre-review) This looks like it is a step up from the original. I cannot WAIT to play LDK mode, and take on hordes of demons........where I might die a lot. And the new characters I will definately have to take a look into (Lady being playable??? This is actually VERY interesting).
FINAL SCORE: Glass door/10
THIS GAME LOOKS FREAKING AMAZING AND I WANT IT!!!
BUT! Considering on how long it took before I found out about physical copies, it felt like that it was right there, but it was beyond my reach, considering my data limitations. But once my copy arrives, this will be edited for my enjoyment! :D
"Might controls everything. And without strength, you cannot protect anything. Let alone yourself."
-Vergil to Dante (DMC3)
(Note: Want a real score? 4/10 for the pre-review....f***ing slow internet)
I loved this game when it came out the first time and when I heard about all the new features, I got even more excited. This wound up being the first game I ever imported and Play-Asia made the experience incredibly simple.
The new characters are all incredibly fun, and I was surprised when I found the game to be entirely in english (even the saving and loading screens). Likely due to my PS4 system language.
This game is a must for any fan of the series, and if you have never played it, it's well worth it at this price.
love dmc4, game run smooth with a 1080p and 60fps.
