DMC4 Demo Coming to PSN, XBL in Early 2008

Capcom has provided notice today that a playable demo for Devil May Cry 4 will be made available on the PlayStation Store and Xbox Live Marketplace shortly into the New Year. No specific date has been given other than a vague “early 2008” time frame, but with the game due out on store shelves in February I’d imagine it’ll be showing up for PS3 and 360 owners to download in January. While the wait for the demo begins, check below for a packed gallery of new screenshots showing Dante wielding his new weapon called “Lucifer” and Nero taking on the One Winged Dark Knight, and hit the jump for a complete description of what will be featured in the upcoming demo.

Devil May Cry 4 Demo Overview Per Capcom’s Press Release:

The demo introduces gamers to the gothic-inspired supernatural world of Devil May Cry 4, new protagonist Nero and the awesome power of his Devil Bringer. The demo consists of a sampling of sections from the full game, chosen to showcase Devil May Cry 4’s varied locales and allows gamers to familiarize themselves with Nero’s unique abilities. Players will receive instruction on the various new actions that the Devil Bringer bestows, such as the ability to slam creatures to the ground, cover great distances in a single bound or even grab enemies while on the ground or in the air and pull them towards Nero to continue the attack combo. The Exceed system allows Nero to “rev up” his sword as if it were a motorcycle throttle and unleash devastating attacks. Players will need to master all these techniques before the end of demo showdown with the mighty Berial.

Fully demonstrating the power of the next generation of consoles, the Devil May Cry 4 demo brings to life the coastal city of Fortuna and its surroundings, such as the port and snow-capped mountain ranges in exquisite detail. Devil May Cry 4 delivers its intense action at a constant 60 frames per second at 720P resolution on HD monitors, ensuring seamless and breathtaking gameplay all in stunning high definition.
