It appears that Capcom is going to either quell or spread the fan outcry once and for all, as they're planning on releasing a demo for their upcoming polarizing Devil May Cry reboot/not a reboot in the near future.
The demo is coming to consoles for sure, but the PC is still up in the air. A playable Vergil is also up in the air it seems, as Capcom told Joystiq yesterday that he "will not be on the disc." Devil May DLC?
We're also getting a bit more insight into the game itself thanks to Joystiq, most notably the fact that the PC version will run at 60 FPS (yes!), Mundus will make an appearance, and a few "novelty modes" will be unlocked after beating the game (will the Bloody Palace return?).
As a Devil May Cry fan since the very first day of the original's release, I'm hoping this turns out well. I don't really have faith in Ninja Theory to craft a technical action system worthy of the franchise, and the 30 FPS limitation on consoles is scary, but we'll all be able to see it in action pretty soon to make a solid judgement, so let's sit tight.
