Capcom seems determined to expand the reach of Devil May Cry 4 beyond the PlayStation and PC worlds, which is where the first three games were released. The current plan is for DMC4 to ship in February 2008 on Xbox 360 and PS3 simultaneously, followed by a PC version later. From what we've seen, it'll be a big debut when it hits the consoles, featuring spacious levels, sassy dialogue, rich combat, powerful weapons, gigantic creatures-and tons of fast-paced action.
TeamXbox recently had a chance to see the work-in-progress, which was running smoothly on the Xbox 360. We also took a few minutes afterward to sit down with Hiroyuki Kobayashi, the game's producer at Capcom, who gave us answers to some of our Devil May Cry and DNC4 questions. What follows is an edited transcript of the meeting, which was facilitated by Gearoid Reidy from Capcom's Osaka office, who served up the translations back and forth.
