Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition Gameplay: Trish and Vergil Get Stylish
Watch Trish and Vergil shove Dante out of the spotlight in these two gameplay videos of Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition.
Before Capcom decided to reboot the Devil May Cry franchise with a much-maligned foul-mouth Dante instead of our beloved, wisecracking showoff, things were good. We had the awesomeness of Devil May Cry 1, 3, and 4 (where's 2? it never happened), and even though each had some small problems, they were all special in their own butt-kicking ways. In an attempt to get back to those glory days and sweep the DmC reboot's dust under the rug, Capcom is releasing an enhanced special edition of Devil May Cry 4, complete with new graphics, game modes and playable characters.
First up, we have Vergil, Dante's broody twin brother. DMC4SE's Vergil is mostly based on his appearance in Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition (Capcom sure does love to re-release games), with him wielding his usual katana along with the hard-hitting glove/boot combo of Beowulf and the semi-dual wielding style of the Force Edge. Like DMC4's Dante, Vergil can rapidly shift between these weapons on-the-fly, making for a fluid, versatile playstyle that maximizes utility and showiness.
Next up is Trish, the series resident ex-demon femme fatale. Trish plays a bit more like DMC4's Nero in that she has one set of weapons she sticks to. Most of your damage will come from the massive Sparta blade which longtime fans will recognize from her previous appearances, several moves using the shapeshifting Pandora's Box, and a slew of electrified hand-to-hand moves including a shocking version of Chun-Li's Spinning Bird Kick.
In addition to Trish and Vergil, Lady's also slated to be playable in DMC4SE, so fans can keep an eye out for this heterochromatic hero when her gameplay trailer drops later on.
Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition arrives this summer for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
