Devil May Cry art contest hints at anniversary collection release

Capcom’s 10th anniversary contest a better indicator of a DMC HD release than fake box art we created 9 months ago

To mark the 10-year anniversary of the Devil May Cry series Capcom has put out a call-to-arms for fan art of any of the characters within the DMC universe. Winners of the competition will have their creations featured in a “new, to be announced Capcom game” as well as a copy of it upon release. Since DmC Devil May Cry was announced during E3 this year we can assume that this contest won’t be for that.

HD remake rumors swirled when a Spanish retailer posted box art for a 10th Anniversary Collection with a release date of November 30th. However, that box art was a piece of custom art GamesRadar created for a feature titled PlayStation 2 HD remakes we’d like to see. The retailer has since pulled the listing, but not after several gaming sites picked up the art to run stories based off it. Could this art contest be the first legitimate hint at an HD remake?

Capcom’s contest, however, with a July 29 deadline, gives the company approximately three months till DMC’s 10-year anniversary on October 17 to include the winners’ entries in their new title. And, really, why ask for Devil May Cry fan art, especially for any character from past Devil May Cry games, if not for a Devil May Cry anniversary collection?
