After so long of waiting for some kind of original DMC related game, we've finally got one! It's not a new game to the series, but it's release means there's hope for the original franchise. I don't know everything new that's in DMC 4 SE since I don't own a next gen console, but I do know that Vergil has his own story, Lady and Trish have been added as playable characters, and Dante, Nero, Trish, and Lady all have alternate costumes! The best part, for me at least, was that they also added in a few more cutscenes with Dante, Lady, and Trish. Again, I'm not sure how many cutscenes or what they are, I've only seen the new opening and ending cutscenes. Which were amazing. Another great thing is that Trish and Dante still have the same voice actors! Lady's voice actor got changed, though. I was absolutely thrilled to hear Reuben Langdon voicing Dante again, and I'm sure he loved voicing Dante again. I really hope they cast him as Dante in the next game, if they decide to make a true DMC 5. Ever since the reboot came out I've been afraid that, if Capcom did go back to the original series, they would mess up DMC 5 by trying to change the original series. But, if Reuben Langdon comes back as Dante in that game, I know he wouldn't let Capcom screw over his character.
The only thing bad about DMC 4 SE is that there is a costume for Dante that is a skin of Donte. I was pissed about this at first, but then I remembered that it wasn't Donte's looks that angered me(Though I absolutely hated his haircut..), it was his personality. They didn't reskin Dante's personality, they just reskined his looks. Underneath the reskin, Dante is still there. But anyways, I'm not sure if that's his alternate costume or not. If you preordered the game, you got extra costumes, so as far as I know there are two sets of reskins for each character.
By the way, whether you own a next gen console or not, ORDER THE SPECIAL EDITION! Capcom said that the future of the original franchise depends on how much they get from the release of DMC 4 SE. Of course, there are rumors that Capcom's already making a DMC 5 regardless of sales. Those rumors are probably true, since it takes years to make a game and Capcom wouldn't want to wait for very long if a DMC 5 might be a profitable investment, but it wouldn't hurt to show Capcom your love for the series by buying the special edition anyways. I went ahead and preordered even though I don't have an Xboxone.
By the way, nobody realized that I'm almost a week late posting this, since it was out for the US on the 23rd, right? Well anyways, whether you've already played DMC 4 SE or you have just heard about what's in it, what's your favorite part about this DMC 4 redo?
