dmc screen 530 500x281 DmC: Devil May Cry to launch in 2013

Ninja Theory’s Devil May Cry title, DmC: Devil May Cry will launch this coming January in North America, Europe and Japan. Capcom has confirmed that the game will hit the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on January 15 2013 in N.A. and Europe, and on January 17 2013 in Japan. A PC version is scheduled for release later in the year.

DmC Devil May Cry will be fully localized with voice talent in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian. Polish, Dutch, Russian, and Brazilian Portuguese languages will be supported via localized text.

Ninja Theory’s DmC will feature a redesigned version of Devil May Cry’s protagonist, Dante, a younger version of the familiar character in the modern world.  A prequel to the current series, the Dante of this game is still coming to terms with being the child of a demon and an angel. However, this could be seen as an advantage as he will be able to call upon angel and demon abilities at will, transforming his Rebellion sword into a holy scythe or a devilish axe.

Capcom has also released details of a new character, Kat. A former runaway that joined The Order early in her life, she is a psychic and therefore can see demons in Limbo. However, she cannot physically interact with them, only acting as a guide to Dante.

DmC: Devil May Cry will be the first installment in the series since January 2008’s Devil May Cry 4. The game will be fully playable at Capcom’s booth at E3 next month.
