The latest issue of Japanese gaming publication, Famitsu, has revealed that Capcom will be releasing Devil May Cry 4 in Japan on January 31, 2008, putting it slightly ahead of its North American release next February.
Consumers who purchase early will receive a special bonus DVD, featuring either Dante or Nero’s likeness from what we can tell, with the actual game retailing for approximately 7990 yen.
Set between the events of the original Devil May Cry and its sequel, Devil May Cry 4 pits players in the shoes of Nero - a dexterous, highly accomplished swordsman and gunslinger.
Clashing with series protagonist Dante in the middle of a demonic invasion of the city of Fortuna, players must guide Nero on a quest for the truth as they make use of his deadly Devil Bringer arm, which gamers can utilize to string together a slew of devastating attack combos.
Stay tuned for more coverage on Devil May Cry 4 in the near future.
