Waiting for April 3 to grab the highly anticipated Devil May Cry HD Collection ?

Well, don't bother. According to Game Informer , the North American street date has been lifted and this great assembly of classics is now available at retailers for $39.99.

Capcom's statement on the matter is simple:

"Capcom has approved the advanced release of Devil May Cry HD Collection. This title was offered at retail ahead of its previously scheduled April 3rd release date, so consumers can now enjoy this great collection one week earlier than expected."

What you're looking at is a high-definition overhaul for the first three titles in this critically acclaimed franchise, which is fantastic news for action fans. The original Devil May Cry was one of the first titles in the PS2 generation to really blow us all away, and DMC3 remains one of the most challenging, satisfying and accomplished action titles ever. DMC2…well, most say it didn't really live up to expectations but it's still a fine game.

Keep a look out for our review of the collection soon.

Is it out in Australia?

Not really excited honestly. Only want to replay Dante's Awakening.

IGN has their review up. It's sort of negative.

Well if it were to happen it would've happened after their Ninja Gaiden 3 review. So seeing how that didn't work I have no idea =p

Oh, but don't be too concerned. I did write them a peace of my mind about that review 😉

At least they have them up fast, I read there sometimes too. This late in the generation the fanboyism isn't there as much and you can read the truth between the lines of what the poorly educated journalists type.

Awesome.. I totally forgot about the DMC collection was coming so soon. I noticed it sold more than NG3 in japan last week.

All I want is the first one, personally. That game kicked butt, the others were disappointing…

edit/ I didn't give much of a chance to the 3rd one but it just didn't click for me.

No thanks, looking forward to Ninja Theory's effort instead.

Be picking it up sometime in the next fortnight. May pick up DMC4 again as well. Depends how cheap I can find a copy. Then it's all steam ahead for DmC 🙂

4 got boring for me, and the lack of trophies made it feel pointless to play. That's odd too because I don't really care about trophies. I liked Nero but the gameplay didn't hold my interest, I shouldn't have to kill the same group of monsters a million times because I flubbed a jump.

Same here. Man I tried to get into DMC4 but everytime I put effort in I somehow lost interest. I think it had a lot to do with hitting it up way late this gen, like Heavenly Sword.

It also drives me nuts how the dude jumps. Great vertical, but terrible horizontal. Those jumping bonus missions angered me.

I also was playing it on Xbox… which just doesn't feel right at all =p

The problem with 4 was how they honestly thought it was fine to recycle all those levels but to do it again as Dante. The gameplay was great except how many times did I kill Belial or the snake/plant lady. The angel credo fight was awesome though.

This is one HD collection I won't be getting as my PS3 can already play all 3 DMC's and they look fine as they are.

I will get this when its $20. It doesn't seem like a top quality conversion like the sony titles.

I think I'll get it in a month or two. Or maybe when NT's version of dmc comes out.
