Devil May Cry 4 Preview

After Capcom made an abysmal Devil May Cry 2, they redeemed themselves with an amazing Devil May Cry 3. Even though Devil May Cry 3 was a prequel, it was immensely better than the original Devil May Cry and Devil May Cry 2 combined. Devil May Cry 4 is the next chapter in the Devil May Cry franchise, and it look on par with Devil May Cry and Devil May Cry 3. Devil May Cry 4 takes place after the events of Devil May Cry, but before the events of Devil May Cry 2. For those of you who are keeping track, this means Devil May Cry 4 will transpire after Devil May Cry 3. Avid Devil May Cry fans will be surprised to see that a new character named Nero might be the protagonist. Dante will be a playable character, but he seems to be in a much more limited role than Nero.
The environments in Devil May Cry 4 look eerily similar to Devil May Cry 1; however, the gameplay resembles Devil May Cry 3. Obviously, Devil May Cry 4 will have its fair share of memorable action sequences. Particularly, the bosses Nero will encounter will act somewhat superfluous before they strive to pummel you to the ground. It is still unknown if Capcom plans on having half of the game in control of Dante, and the other half in control of Nero. Capcom divulged that player will be able to alter their fighting styles instantly, instead of the cumbersome menu system of Devil May Cry 3. The visuals in Devil May Cry 4 are phenomenal, and they take full advantage of the next generation hardware. Devil May Cry 4 will be available for the Xbox 360, PC, and the PlayStation 3 and is slated for a 2008 release date.
