DmC Devil May Cry will launch for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on January 15, 2013 in North America and Europe, Capcom has announced. A PC version is “well underway” to launch later in 2013.
Capcom detailed a new character named Kat, a psychic who can see into the demon realm and guides Dante on his mission. Her bio:
Kat is a former runaway that joined The Order very early in her life. She is a medium and a gifted psychic who can see into Limbo, the demon realm, but not directly interact with it in the way that Dante does. She is the right hand girl to the Leader of The Order and devotes her life to him, often putting herself in grave danger to gather intelligence from Limbo.
There is a sweet innocence about Kat’s world view and logic, but when it comes to her specialist subject, the demon realm, she is an undoubted expert. Kat is The Order’s ‘eyes and ears’ and is tasked with guiding Dante on his mission through Limbo.
Screenshots of Kat can be seen at the gallery.
Developed by Ninja Theory, whose credits include Heavenly Sword and Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, the game follows Dante’s early years while set against a “contemporary backdrop.” It promises to maintain the series’ “stylish action,” “fluid combat,” and “self-assured protagonist,” but add a “more brutal and visceral edge” to the franchise.
The game will be localized into several voiced languages, including English, French, German, Spanish and Italian. Polish, Dutch, Russian, and Brazilian Portuguese will be supported through subtitles.
DmC Devil May Cry will be on display at E3 next month as one of Capcom’s “featured titles.”
