It's been almost three years since Capcom's superlative Devil May Cry 3 came out. DMC3 featured a refined version of the stylish action gameplay that had made previous games in the series so famous, but also brought along some brutally difficult bosses and very challenging gameplay.
Now that we're firmly entrenched in the current generation of consoles, Devil May Cry is finally making the leap forward. In Devil May Cry 4, you take control of Nero, a new character for the series, who has to grapple with the power of his demonic arm as he attempts to end the turmoil that has engulfed his nation. Along the way, he'll meet up with Dante, the hero of the first three Devil May Cry games.
Newcomers to the series will be happy to note that the difficulty in Devil May Cry 4 is toned down compared to DMC3. Luckily, the enemies also seem to move a bit more slowly, allowing the emphasis to be placed more squarely on butt-kicking than it is on dodging attacks. Whether you're new to the series or an old pro, though, our Game Guide for Devil May Cry 4 will hopefully give you some help!
Note: There's some information that we weren't able to uncover in DMC4 based on our playthrough, so we'll be updating this guide over the next week or so. Also note that the videos for the various boss fights may not be in this guide just yet; check back for them over the next day or so.
