DmC Release Date Confirmed + New Character Revealed
Capcom have confirmed the release date for Ninja Theory’s Devil May Cry reboot, DmC. Sadly it is yet another game being pushed back into 2013.
The announcement comes just one day after SEGA confirmed Aliens: Colonial Marines would also miss 2012. Of course if the game ends up being better as a result, you’ll here no complaints from us.
Developed by UK studio Ninja Theory, DmC will follow a younger rather different Dante, although he’ll still be spending most his time slaying demons. A brand-new character has also been revealed today in the form of, Kat.
Kat is a former runaway that joined The Order very early in her life. She is a medium and a gifted psychic who can see into Limbo, the demon realm, but not directly interact with it in the way that Dante does. She is the right hand girl to the Leader of The Order and devotes her life to him, often putting herself in grave danger to gather intelligence from Limbo.
There is a sweet innocence about Kat’s world view and logic, but when it comes to her specialist subject, the demon realm, she is an undoubted expert. Kat is The Order’s ‘eyes and ears’ and is tasked with guiding Dante on his mission through Limbo.
New screenshots of Kat can be found below. Are you excited about this reboot or has the new look turned you off the series?
DmC: Devil May Cry is set to release in the US and Europe on January 15th 2013.
