Generally speaking, deals with the devil aren't made on a "try before you buy" basis. However, Capcom is planning an exception to the rule.
Today the publisher announced that it will make a downloadable demo for its upcoming action game Devil May Cry 4 available on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 early next year. The demo will allow players to put the series' new protagonist Nero through his paces in a variety of environments from the game as well as a boss battle.
Devil May Cry 4 is set for release on both consoles on February 5, with a PC edition to follow later in the year. The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions will be available as a regular edition ($59.99) or in limited edition sets ($79.99) that include the first four episodes of the Devil May Cry: The Animated Series, and a PC disc with wallpapers, making-of footage, and more.
