Devil May Cry 4 PC details, demo pledge

Capcom plans to release Devil May Cry 4 on PC this summer and has added some extra bits and pieces to make the wait worthwhile.

What's more, a demo version will be released before that, and will include a benchmark mode for testing PC performance and waving it in the face of poor people.

The new bits in the full version are a Turbo mode to make everything go at "insane" speeds, and a Legedary Dark Knight mode to cram more enemies on to your screen at once.

Demo Roundup - 28th Jan to 4th Feb

Conflict, Katamari, DMC4.

It's been another bare week for demos. But I stood up on a surfboard in the freezing cold waters of Cornwall. That made me happy, at least until I fell off and hit my back on a rock and tried not to cry. You could say I had a bit of conflict with the water, which is interesting, as Conflict: Denied Ops is one of the new samplers to tell you about.

DMC4 ten quid cheaper on Xbox 360

We're always saving you money.

Those of you who own both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 might want to take note that Devil May Cry 4 is ten quid cheaper on the latter than it is on the former. Bargain!

DMC4 dev avoids other games

Hasn't played God of War/Gaiden.

Devil May Cry 4 producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi thinks it's actually best that game developers keep their eyes on their own work and don't play competitors' games.

Well, some. More tomorrow.

Capcom's started talking about Devil May Cry 4 in a bit more detail, with the game set to be unveiled (to some extent) when the Japanese website launches fully tomorrow.

In the meantime, reports out of Famitsu Weekly in Japan point to a game set between the first and second PS2 instalments, which those with good memories will already know.

Back then the team was mulling over a new female lead or a returning old one, according to producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi, but now they've apparently settled on Nero. Dante will be in it though, and with a beard, judging by another Kobayashi piece in Famitsu this January.

New Devil May Cry 4 details

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.
