DmC Devil May Cry, the series reboot by Heavenly Sword-developers Ninja Theory, has been the latest big game release to slide into 2013. The new release date has been confirmed as January 15th, 2013, worldwide for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions. The PC version is scheduled for later in 2013.
To at least keep you a bit excited for the release, Capcom has sent over a trio of new screens showing off the new Kat character.
At least you can still pre-order it for now. Read on for the sad announcement.
DmC Devil May Cry, the next installment in the multi-million unit selling franchise, will release for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on January 15, 2013 in North America and Europe. In addition, PC gamers will also be able to experience the title with a Windows PC version whose development is well underway and scheduled for release later in 2013.
Developed by critically acclaimed Cambridge based developer Ninja Theory in close collaboration with Capcom, DmC Devil May Cry details Dante’s early years set against a contemporary backdrop. While retaining the stylish action, fluid combat and self-assured protagonist that have defined the iconic series, DmC Devil May Cry injects a more brutal and visceral edge to the franchise.
DmC Devil May Cry will be fully localized with voice talent in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian and in addition, Polish, Dutch, Russian, and Brazilian Portuguese languages will be supported with localized text.

Detailing Dante's early years and set against a contemporary backdrop, DmC Devil May Cry will retain the stylish action, fluid combat and self-assured protagonist that have defined the iconic series but inject a more brutal and visceral edge. The Dante of DmC is a young man who has no respect for authority or society in general. Dante knows that he is not human, but also that he is not like the demons that have tormented him throughout his life. Caught between worlds, he feels like an outcast. He is now discovering and coming to terms with what it means to be the child of a demon and an angel. This split personality has a real impact on gameplay with Dante being able to call upon angel and demon abilities at will, transforming his Rebellion sword on the fly to dramatically affect both combat and movement. For DmC Capcom has teamed up with UK development studio, Ninja Theory, renown for delivering action titles with compelling characters and narrative coupled with high production values. The combination of Ninja Theory's expertise and Capcom's unrivalled heritage in producing combat focused action titles will ensure that this latest addition to the multi-million selling series will remain true to the Devil May Cry DNA so cherished by the fans, while bringing a new level of cinematic quality to the title.
