Devil May Cry HD Collection coming to Xbox One, PC

Earlier today, Capcom member Yuri Araujo announced on his blog that a new collection of Devil May Cry games is releasing next year on March 13 for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 gamers. This bundle will include Devil May Cry, Devil May Cry 2, and Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition. Notably, this is the first time Devil May Cry and Devil May Cry 2 have released on PC. It does not contain Devil May Cry 4.

The Devil May Cry franchise is a series of hack-and-slash style games that emphasize battling demons through melee combat.

Araujo had some comments regarding the legacy of the series' main protagonist, Dante:

Since his debut back in 2001, Dante swiftly became a gaming icon, representing fun and challenging combat coated in a layer of stylish moves and crazy acrobatics that make you look like an absolute badass. We're talking juggling enemies in the air with handgun bullets and even riding them around like skateboards. It's that stylish potential that has drawn in and captivated fans worldwide; after all, who doesn't like looking super cool?

He then goes on to explain that the HD Collection is geared towards people who never got the chance to play the original trilogy of games, and that it will offer a more modern experience with "silky smooth 60 frames per second" and updated visuals. At this time, nothing is known about pricing.

Are you excited to see Dante slaying the forces of evil on modern day gaming hardware? Let us know your thoughts.

The Devil May Cry HD Collection should release on March 13, 2018.
