Capcom has shown some new Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition gameplay sequences showcasing Lady and Trish.
I don't get all this "let's release the game again but with a little something extra" stuff most companies are pulling these days.
I'd usually agree with you, but Devil May Cry is a special exception. For instance, Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition improved the game so much, With the option to play as Vergil, extra difficulties, Turbo mode, extra bosses, new costumes, that it made the original release look paltry in comparison. Trust me, if you're a true hardcore Devil May Cry fan, you'll get hundreds of hours out of all the extra content included in Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition. I can't wait.
its just businesses - and like most businesses in the art - they all just copy each other on what makes money. And sadly, consumers are buying keep buying this crap. I mean - you'll still have people come out and say "you dont have to buy it." Same people who i guess allow the NSA to spy on them because "they aren't doing anything" ...until it reaches a point of ENOUGH. 3 years into this gen and it sucks. seriously sucks.
I'd usually DISAGREE with Blaze, but you are right. All this talk about how backwards compatibility was TOO expensive, but they've poured plenty of money into repackaging the same games for us (many times digitally) because THAT's the money maker. I don't need to relive DMC from 2013 or DMC4 because they really aren't all that old. And didn't the last generation already do that? How many PS2 games were remastered on PS3? I had less of a problem with THAT because PS3 was already HD and many PS3's no longer were BC. I'm tired of this nonsense. The last of us, GTAV, all repackaged with "extra content" digitally for full price when it seems like I just bought the games. and you are right, I don't have to buy it. But I bought into this gen for NEW experiences. If you wanted us to keep playing old shit, you should've included BC via hardware or software emulation. My damn smartphone can do it, so why not my "next gen" system?
Well that sucks donkey balls.
I can't wait to play this game! I had no problem getting it just for Vergil but Trish looks really fun as well. https://www.change.org/p/ca...
I played DMC4 back when it was first released some years ago. My feeling has told me not to play again this remastered. The special edition, however, is actually a fine release for players who haven't got a chance to play it. I have been playing DmC: Definitive Edition these past weeks, anyway. And it is awesome.
The lack of a physical release in NA / EU is like shooting yourself in the foot, Capcom. You're losing quite a few sales there. But maybe that's part of some master plan.
