Devil May Cry 4 demo out "early 2008"

Dec 7, 2007

The promised PS3 and Xbox 360 Devil May Cry 4 demo will be out in early 2008.

According to Capcom, the demo consists of a sampling of sections from the full game which have been chosen "to showcase Devil May Cry 4's varied locales and allows gamers to familiarize themselves with Nero's unique abilities.”

You can check these out for yourself in the new screens. Here's a tiny taste of what you'll see:

Capcom goes on to say: "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.

"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."

It'll also allow players to get a handle on the Exceed system which allows Nero to "rev up" his sword - like a lawnmower - and unleash monster attacks.

"Players will need to master all these techniques before the end of demo showdown with the mighty Berial."
