Ever since Capcom handed over the reins of development for the latest Devil May Cry game to developer Ninja Theory (Heavenly Sword), it seems Dante has undergone somewhat of a sex change. He looks more like an anorexic Goth who’s stepped out of an Avril Lavigne video than a badass demon slayer. Capcom thankfully are keeping the real DMC alive via an iOS game that will faithfully recreate Devil may Cry 4 for the iPhone and iPod Touch (no iPad love, sorry).
Devil May Cry4: Refrain, as it’s called, will allow players to battle through ten levels of enemies as Nero, the protagonist from the console version. Like the console version, Nero will wield a large sword (heh), pistols and a Demon Hand for his handheld outing.
There’s no mention of Dante at all which makes us believe you’ll either unlock him or he’ll be a downloadable character at a later date. Devil May Cry 4: Refrain will hit iTunes by the end of this month for $7.
