Once the exclusive domain of the DVD market, the practice of "double dipping," or rereleasing a product with extra content thrown in, is popping up more frequently in the world of games (such as Ninja Gaiden Black and Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance). The latest instance comes from Capcom, which today announced North American release details for Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening Special Edition.

Joining Sony's Greatest Hits line of budget-priced PlayStation 2 games, Dante's Awakening Special Edition takes the original Devil May Cry 3 and adds a smattering of new features, most notable among them the ability to play as series protagonist Dante's evil twin brother, Vergil, with his own Dark Slayer fighting style. The rerelease also features a new boss character, a turbo option to speed the game up by 20 percent, a new continue system, adjusted difficulty levels (with a new "very hard" mode), and survival and movie modes.

Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening Special Edition is rated M for Mature and will retail for $19.95 when it is released January 24 in North America. For more information, check out GameSpot's full review of the original Devil May Cry 3.
