Capcom may be working on a reboot of the Devil May Cry franchise, but it isn’t forgetting to honor the series’ roots with the Devil May Cry HD Collection, which the developer/publisher announced will be arriving April 3, 2012 in both the US and Europe.
The game will include the first three titles in the old series – Devil May Cry, Devil May Cry 2, and Devil May Cry 3: Dante’s Awakening Special Edition – and include both bonus content and support for PlayStation Network Trophies and Xbox Live Achievements. Purchasers of the collection will spend $39.99 for their Dante-filled HD bundle on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Devil May Cry first released in 2001, introducing gamers to who would soon become a major icon in the industry, Dante. The critically acclaimed title earned a sequel two years later in 2003 with Devil May Cry 2 and then saw a sequel/prequel in 2006 with Devil May Cry 3: Dante’s Awakening, which introduced Dante’s brother Vergil to the series.
All of these games were released on the PlayStation 2, unlike the final installment of the original iteration of the series, Devil May Cry 4, which introduced Nero as a new playable protagonist and released on both the Xbox 360 and PS3.
