Devil May Cry 4 producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi has said that Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game will be "pretty much identical".

"As far as the Xbox [360] and the PS3 are concerned, the capabilities and the features in the game we expect will be the same," Kobayashi told IGN. "Our plan is to pretty much make them identical."

He also confirmed that Dante will be playable in the new game with familiar moves and abilities, and will probably make an appearance later on in the storyline.

However, the focus of Devil May Cry 4 will be on newcomer Nero, a devil hunter belonging to the Order of the Sword. He wields a double-barrelled pistol called Blue Rose and an enormous sword known as the Red Queen, and will be able to pull off a myriad special abilities and attacks with them.

And while controlling Nero will feel instantly familiar to fans of the series, Kobayashi was keen to point out that the new star is far from a carbon copy of Dante. He's more sarcastic for a start - with quips and observations springing from his lips like something to something else that works analogously.

Unfortunately there's still no news on when we can expect the game, but both Xbox 360 and PS3 versions are expected to launch simultaneously, with a PC outing to follow.
