Devil May Cry HD Collection release date jumps forward to... right now

The end of last year saw the Devil May Cry HD Collection dated for April, but Capcom seems to have decided that this month had been a bit uneventful. We did our best to spice things up by awarding Game of the Month, March 2012 to a contender sure to spark a nerdfight or two... but Capcom's apparently looking to start some flamewars of its own, with the surprise early release of the Devil May Cry HD Collection.

Game Informer reports that retailers have been given the go-ahead to just start selling Devil May Cry HD now, rather than waiting until next week as originally intended. No explanation given, and really, none needed for the man on the street. Any day's a good day to play Devil May Cry, as far as we're concerned.

    That's pretty cool. Publishers usually get in a huff when a retailer breaks street date, but now the publisher is TELLING them to do it...I'll probably still wait and get this sometime later, but it's great to see something released earlier than intended rather than the opposite, even if it is just a few days.

    Here's hoping this is better than that shit Konami and Ubisoft tried to force out.

    That sort of thing needs to happen more often with release dates. (As long as the game's still good, of course.)

    ..Huh, that's a.. different move XD This is something I'd like to get... If I didn't have a lot to play still >>;
