Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition UPDATED
On December 15, 2014, Capcom announced the game would be released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition was released on June 18, 2015, for the PS4 and Xbox One versions, and June 24, 2015, for the PC version in Japan, and on June 23, 2015, for all announced platforms in other regions. In the games and anime series, Dante is often seen eating pizza so the limited edition of Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition was packaged in a pizza box.
Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition
The gameplay for Devil May Cry 4 follows closely to its predecessors, especially Devil May Cry 3, as a hack and slash adventure. Players navigate their way through massive levels while slaying demons mostly in a third person perspective. Emphasis is placed on the methods used to deal with enemies, in the form of a Stylish Rank Gauge. Players can rack up Style points by defeating enemies with both melee and projectile weapons. Varying one's attacks further increases the gauge, while using the same move repeatedly will lower and stop the letter ranking until another style is used. Players can also dodge and taunt to increase their stylish ranking.
On December 15, 2014, Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition was announced right after the trailer of DmC: Devil May Cry - Definitive Edition, 10 years after the release of Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition. All bonus content introduced in the Special Edition is available straight from the start. This includes; characters, costumes, and various other features. Any content that needed to be unlocked in the original game still needs to be unlocked in the same fashion. On March 24, 2015, an official trailer was released on YouTube with further announcements from Hideaki Itsuno. On June 23, 2015, Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition was officially released through digital download in the west, with a physical edition only being sold in Japan.
Dante returns with a similar ability set to Devil May Cry 3, but his standard assortment of stabs and slashes are augmented by some extreme weapons, like the transforming war-machine, Pandora's box, which can be used as a bow, a rocket launcher and a floating weapons array. Vergil, meanwhile, favours a laconic, katana-led style that will be familiar to players of Devil May Cry 3's special edition - though he feels a little quicker here. Trish made her debut in Devil May Cry 2, and fights with the enormous sword of Sparda, which she uses quickly in conjunction with electrified kicks to stunlock and dice multiple enemies. Her relatively simple controls makes her the friendliest character to use. The Nero/Dante tag team is replaced by Lady and Trish for their playthrough, and oddly the easier of the pair to control is held back for the latter half of the game.

DEVIL MAY CRY 4 SPECIAL EDITION is a remastered version of the extremely popular 2008 action game for consoles and PC. The original game features a sarcastic young teen named Nero from the town of Arcadia. Nero's life is suddenly upended one day when the famous demon hunter Dante crashes a religious ceremony and assassinates the leader of the Order of the Sword as well as several of its members. Seeking revenge, Nero tracks Dante across a large number of environments, unaware that a larger threat could destroy both of them as well as the entire world. The Special Edition also includes Vergil, Dante's half-brother, along with series favorites (and fellow demon hunters) Trish and Lady as playable characters, each with her own special abilities and weapons. It also includes the Legendary Dark Knight mode (originally found in the PC version of the game), which significantly increases the number of enemies in each battle, as well as a bonus Japanese language track for dialogue.
But while these additions are a great touch for this generation of systems, DMC4SE feels more like a minor retread than the definitive edition of the game. If you choose to play as one of the three new characters, you get an intro and outro movie that's unique to these antiheroes. Unfortunately, Capcom decided to not include any other story cut scenes from their perspective. As a result, the new characters feel shallow fighting through each mission without a plot, which will cause players to quickly lose interest in the game. On top of that, some of the camera-angle problems that plagued the original remain, making it hard to see the action during some combat sequences. If you can overlook the camera issues, and you only play the three new characters after completing the initial story mode, you'll find an enjoyable action title. It's just not the perfect, definitive edition that it should be.
Trish's Palace run is easily the most difficult because she lacks a Super costume, and her only powerful move is Pandora's laser cannon. You will want to, therefore, make use of her specialty in damage over time attacks. Abuse the living hell out of her Round Trip and subsequent Spinning Kick move (mash after throwing Sparda). To add some more DoT dealing, use Inazuma (mid-air Beowulf-like Falling Star) to put down some lightning strands in the midst of enemies.
