Capcom ships special Devil May Cry

Cheaper, bigger version of third installment to demon-killing series slices into stores.

Adding new features and making a game longer doesn't always mean charging more money. Capcom today announced that Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening Special Edition is now available in North America. The game, originally released in March 2005, is being rereleased as part of Sony's "Greatest Hits" collection for the PlayStation 2, meaning it will retail for the budget price of $19.95.

The special edition isn't just getting new box art, however. The new take on the action game adds several new features, including the chance to play as Vergil, the evil brother to the game's protagonist, Dante; to fight against the Jester boss; and to speed things up with the Turbo option. For more information on the game, check back later for a full review, or read GameSpot's review of the original.

See? This is how special editions should be. You don't charge more for stuff that could've been included the first time around like they do with DVDs.

Ordered mine....I had a dream that I was way too annoyed not having it. Weird huh? And no, a European release isn't planned right now.

I want to play as Vergil so much, but I already payed $50 for the original. :( I think I'll just wait for DMC4.

You don't *have* to buy a new copy. The old one was good enough until you heard about this. You're the one who has to make the decision whether or not another playable character, boss, and continues/adjusted difficulty are worth $20.

I can't wait to play as Vergil but it's a shame that I will have to buy another copy of DMC3. 'Special edition' is just another word for 'give us more money you bunch of morons'
