It seems hints of the Devil May Cry 4 demo's launch left on the official site mislead us - you'll be playing the game tomorrow, Capcom has confirmed, not next week.
"The Devil May Cry 4 demo you've heard about will be up on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network this Thursday, January 24, 2008," says Capcom, before going on to reveal that the giant fire beast thing we keep seeing will be in the demo.
Capcom says that while the demo will also go live tomorrow on the European Xbox Live Marketplace, the Euro PSN Store won't get it until January 31. No biggie though - just use that US account you should have created by now.
Here’s what Capcom says to expect: "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 motorbike throttle and unleash devastating attacks. Players will need to master all these techniques before the end of demo showdown with the mighty Berial."
Tomorrow's the day.
