Capcom sets North American and European arrival for $40 Xbox 360 and PS3 collection of Dante's first three adventures.


Dante's next adventure is still in launch-window limbo, but Capcom has nailed down a release date for a collection of the DMC protagonist's first three outings. The publisher today announced the Devil May Cry HD Collection will arrive on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on April 3 in North America and Europe.

The HD Collection will let Dante get reacquainted with his old friend, the Magma Spider.

The HD Collection will represent the original PlayStation 2 trilogy with Devil May Cry, Devil May Cry 2, and Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening Special Edition. Beyond a high-definition visual retooling, Capcom has said the new package will include unspecified bonus content and support for trophies on the PS3 and achievements on the Xbox 360.

Released in October of 2001, Devil May Cry introduced protagonist Dante and established the series' mixture of gunplay and swordplay. The second game followed on in 2003 with the introduction of Lucia and an enhanced demon form.

In 2005, Devil May Cry 3 introduced new fighting styles and told a prequel story involving Dante and his rival brother Vergil. The Special Edition of Devil May Cry 3 was released in early 2006 and featured a playable Virgil, 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.
