DmC Devil May Cry demo 'coming soon,' Mundus coming back

A demo of DmC Devil May Cry, Ninja Theory's reboot of Capcom's action franchise, is "coming soon," according to a presentation at a panel for the game held during New York Comic Con yesterday.

No concrete date for the demo is available yet.

DmC producer Alex Jones also announced that Mundus, the villain from the original Devil May Cry, will return for the reboot as the Demon King — the ruler of Limbo. In DmC, the demons that Dante is hunting call Limbo home. It's a twisted, hellish version of the real world, and from there, Mundus and the demons manipulate humans on Earth. Limbo is "a world that hates Dante," said Ninja Theory communications manager Dominic Matthews, pointing out that demons will home in on him as he moves through the realm.

During the Q&A portion of the panel, Jones confirmed that completing the game will unlock "a few novelty modes," such as something similar to the "Dante Must Die" difficulty level from the previous games in the series. He also revealed that challenge rooms, a hallmark of the series, will be available in DmC, interspersed throughout the game world. Asked about plans for downloadable content, Jones demurred, but promised that it would come after launch and would actually be downloadable: "Read my lips — not on disc," he told the audience.

Capcom also showed a new trailer for DmC Devil May Cry, which is set for release on Jan. 15 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and at a later date on PC. The PC version, said Jones, will run at 60 frames per second and will take advantage of high-end graphics cards to offer notable visual upgrades.
