The day before yesterday, CAPCOM announced that the long-rumored Devil May Cry HD Collection will be hitting Xbox 360 console and PlayStation 3 consoles in April 3, 2012. The collection will include Devil May Cry, Devil May Cry 2, and Devil May Cry 3: Dante’s Awakening Special Edition all rendered in fancy-nice high-definition graphics.
It is a hack-and-slash series known for its frenetic and stylish combat, in which players are encouraged to chain together massive combos in a flurry of sword slashes and gun shots. The first three games, which are included in the collection, are praised as some of the best in the genre.
Devil May Cry HD Collection will support high-definition video output for the three games as well as PlayStation Network trophies and Xbox Live achievements. Otherwise, there’s nothing new for series veterans. But opening these titles to an audience who may have missed them the first time around is always a good thing.
And for those of us who enjoyed the Devil May Cry series growing up, an HD collection is a way to remind us to stop and look back once in a while. We will keep you updated on all the latest Xbox 360 games or other PS3 games news.
