It’s been rumored for months, but hasn’t had an official say, until now. Capcom has confirmed it for an early 2012 release, slated to hit the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
This will be the first time, a majority of the Devil May Cry series will be on another console other than the Playstation 2. Devil May Cry, Devil May Cry 2 and Devil May Cry 3: Dante’s Awakening Special Edition are the titles selected to be in the HD collection, with the whopping price of $39.99.
If you haven’t played, or want to replay the series, now is your chance to in glorious high definition.
As E3 wakes up, here’s your second round of news information!
DmC Devil May Cry: 360, PS3 – No Confirmed Release Date
Capcom have released a gameplay trailer for the contreversy-coated origin story of Dante. Fans of the series have been up in arms over the game, upset over the changes to Dante’s look. While the gameplay does look similar to prior itirations, it probably is unfair to judge it purely on a younger version of the arguably iconic Dante. Judge for yourselves if the game could be good, or if the look threatens to ruin what could be a fantastic game.
Sly Cooper: Theives in Time: Ps3 Exclusive – Due Out 2012
Sony have confirmed the rumours that Sucker Punch Productions are not in charge of Sly Cooper 4 due to their commitments to the inFamous series. Instead, Sanzaru Games have been gifted with overseeing Sly’s first outing since 2005. While fans are understandably anxious, it should be noted Sanzaru were behind the HD ports of the original trilogy onto the PS3, so have experience with how to treat the series with respect. The trailer shows promise, you can check it out below.
WiiU – Due 2012
Nintendo’s press conference blew everyone away, and for those lucky enough to be watching it were amazed at the WiiU and what the graphics were capable of. However, hindsight is 20:20, especially with the reveal that President of Nintendo America Reggie Fils-Aime admitted that the video wasn’t showing Wii U footage — it was showing footage from PS3 and 360 versions of the games in question. While Nintendo haven’t done anything wrong – the hardware is nowhere near ready yet, and E3 participants have been toying with tech demos at the booth. However, they used the footage to give people an idea of what to expect.
While this is disheartening, it is not the end of the world, and Nintendo cannot be scalded until we see the WiiU ((Or Wii Universe as I will now call it, WiiU is too silly)) in it’s finished form. I don’t have a video for this, so here’s the Super Mario 3DS trailer again.
It’s mostly basic stuff but Capcom is providing some information to help us understand how Dragon’s Dogma is going to play. It seems that the game is based on simple actions like drawing a sword, grabbing, light and weak attacks. This will not be a Devil May Cry level combo driven action game. Instead the action looks focused on using simple actions
efficiently. This could be a very cool game if Capcom uses the open world aspect well and has lots of optional content and more super cool giant monsters to fight Shadow of the Colossus style.
A new trademark, recently published by Capcom adds weight to the current rumours of a new Devil May Cry game being in the works. Earlier this year, Game Informer leaked that Ninja Theory: Developer of Heavenly Sword were asked by Capcom to create the new DMC game as they wanted a moe westen version of the series as said by Keiji Inafune at E3 earlier this year.
Now, a patent has been shown from Capcom filing the trademark “DMC” about a week ago as part of “computer games software” Not much else is known about this except that all rumours point to some form of announcement at Tokyo Game Show. The patent in question is shown afer the jump.

With God of War collections coming to PS3 some members over the Capcom unity blog started asking if Capcom may do the same. Christian Svensson, Capcom’s Corprate Officer/VP of strategic planning & business development said “I don’t want anyone reading this the wrong way (as I’m not saying anything like this could happen) but I’m seeing some interested for DMC to get this treatment… are there other titles you’d like see go this way? I’m looking for some temperature readings.”
While obviously this is far from a confirmation, Capcom is a company that listens to their fans. So if enough interest is shown then there’s a good chance that the games would be made for the PS3 or even the 360.
