DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition slices its way onto the Xbox One March 17

Capcom will bring one of its biggest recent games to the Xbox One console soon. The publisher revealed today that the third person action game DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition, developed by Ninja Theory, will be coming to the Xbox One on March 17 for the price of $39.99.

There's a ton of new and improved content in DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition, which was first released for the Xbox 360 in January 2013, and Capcom has provided a full feature list:

  • 60fps framerate, 1080p resolution.
  • Rebalanced, repolished gameplay - Ninja Theory has thoroughly examined the entire game and nearly two years of user feedback, and has made it tighter than ever. This includes bug fixes, rebalanced combat elements, enemy behavior, the Style system, and even new settings like an optional manual lock-on.
  • All DLC from the last-gen version of DmC, including costumes, weapon skins, the pre-order bonus items (Item Finder, Orb Harvester), and of course, the "Vergil's Downfall" campaign—hours of new gameplay starring Dante's badass brother, Vergil.
  • New "Bloody Palace" mode for Vergil - By popular demand, Vergil will now have his own Bloody Palace mode, featuring sixty waves of stylish madness. As an added bonus, the timer in Bloody Palace mode (for both characters) is now a toggle-able setting.
  • Turbo Mode - A perennial favorite of the Devil May Cry franchise, this mode gives a 20% speed boost to all gameplay, upgrading the game's tempo from Adagio to—wait for it—Andante. Pretty proud of that one.
  • Hardcore Mode - Designed for those looking for a classic, hardcore challenge, this setting can be toggled on and off between stages, and will affect various aspects of the game, such as Devil Trigger, AI, and the Style system.
  • Gods Must Die difficulty level - Unlocked after beating Dante Must Die, this mode is insanely hard, with all enemies spawning in Devil Trigger and dealing 2.5x the normal damage. Plus: no items allowed!
  • Must Style mode - For the masochistic, this mode requires that players achieve an S style rank or higher in order to deal damage to enemies.
  • New costumes for Dante and Vergil celebrating the Devil May Cry legacy.
  • Updated trophies/achievements to account for the new modes.
  • New leaderboards for Hardcore Mode and Vergil's Bloody Palace.
  • Next-gen standard sharing functionality - This may be a given, but consider the potential! Every single person who owns the game and has an internet connection will be able to upload combo videos or stream the game live.

Capcom also announced that Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition will be released for the Xbox One this summer but at the moment there are no details about what will be included in that version of the game.

  • Awesome. I'm getting an Xbox One for Christmas. Probably won't be able to afford Xbox live though.
  • Sometimes I want to help friens knowing that I grabbed 1 year memberships for 20 bucks at my company store as part of holiday deals. Normally its 25+tax.
  • If you keep an eye out for deals, you can usually find 12-month Xbox Live Gold subscriptions for 30-40% off.
  • eBay. $40
  • I think at the MS store you get $20 off a year of live with new console purchase, I could see a price match other places. Even so, you can probably get one for $35-40 online if you look hard enough.
  • Dmc devil may cry and mgr are the two best fast paced action games I've ever played..
  • I am in Ninja Gaiden club, missing it badly esp when Bayonetta also went Wii route.
  • That would be cool if they released a Ninja Gaiden Definitive Edition Collection. I would be all over that.
  • God of War. That is all.
  • Unfortunately, never gonna happen.
  • Anything for windows phone?
  • Fuck you!: The Game
  • That was really stupid.
  • This entire game was stupid.
  • Yessss.
  • If nothing new come out within two weeks prior to this coming out, I will be picking this up.
  • My favourite character from all games Dante is finally on the Xbox one...bring on the madness!!!
  • Saw this on Joystiq this morning. So excited! DMC4 was a great game and I really want to play DMC: Devil May Cry.
  • I didn't get the first one because I was waiting for something like this
  • Right..
  • Story was atrocious in this reboot. They transformed Vergil from the cool and collected badass killer in DmC3 to a fedora wearing rage induced doofus. Not even going to get into how wrong Dante's personality was. That said, gameplay was tight and looking forward to replaying it all over again.
  • Stop living in the past. Both characters were badass.. And the gameplay was awesome..
  • Capcom releases a statement! Late breaking news! "We have no new ideas on what to do with our ip so we're just going to rerelease all of it!"....
  • Good God! Why won't Capcom do RE5 fit the next Gen consoles?
  • nooooope. easily one of the most cringe worthy games i've ever had the displeasure of playing.
  • Would love to see god of war but I know is Sony exclusive also uncharted
  • I so hope this also comes out for PC as a "Game of the Year" edition of sorts. I've always wanted to buy it. Now that I know I really have stuff to look out for I want to buy it even more. They can release a patch for the original game, I'm fine with that too.
  • Well, if you're going to remaster your game, that's the way to do it.. I appreciate the $40 tag. Though I wish Ninja Theory would work on a new Enslaved......
  • It's funny cause DMC was on PlayStation before Xbox
  • So was Tomb Raider but now we have it exclusively. ;)
  • Getting mighty sick of remakes, I want more original stuff.
