New Devil May Cry 4 details

From the producer himself.

Devil May Cry producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi has revealed more of what we can expect from the fourth instalment in the series, currently in development for PlayStation 3.

In an interview with Famitsu Capcom, Kobayashi confirmed that the Dante on display at the Tokyo Game Show last October wasn't the finished model - you can expect to see a much more mature and sophisticated figure when the game hits the shelves.

And to make sure that you're aware you're looking at a videogame character who's all grown up, he'll sport a beard. It's not just Dante who'll be looking good, either - according to Kobayashi, the finished game will look just as flashy as the TGS demo, which was running in real time.

The bad news for rubbish gamers is that DMC4 will be just as tough to complete as its predecessor. Kobayashi said that initially he planned to lower the difficulty level, but then he realised that DMC fans would be cross, so that plan went out the window. However, DMC4 will be easier to "control" and "get into", apparently.

There's a lot more to see and do in this game than its predecessors, according to Kobayashi - you can expect more baddies, bosses, weapons and environments than there were in the first three games put together, would you believe.

Devil May Cry 4 is out in The Future.
