TGS 2005: Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition confirmed

[UPDATED] Capcom will release an upgraded version of its fantasy adventure that allows gamers to play as Vergil.


According to the latest issue of Famitsu, Capcom will release Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition for the PlayStation 2 this winter in Japan. Development of the game is reportedly complete, so its release should see no delays.

Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition will be an upgraded version of Devil May Cry 3 with a number of new features. The biggest addition revealed thus far is the inclusion of Dante's evil twin, Vergil, as a playable character. While Vergil was briefly playable in the original DMC3, players will now be able to unlock him and play the game from his point of view.

Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition will also include a new "very hard" difficulty setting, and a "demo digest" option that allows players to watch cutscenes from the game. The game is expected to be playable at this week's Tokyo Game Show.

Now that the show has begun, Capcom has unveiled its official Web site for Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition, showcasing some new artwork from the game, as well as Vergil and his various weapons.
