Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition has launched for PC, PS4 and Xbox One and there are already complete gameplay walkthroughs available to offer hints, tips and play-style advice for budding gamers and elite players in training. If you’ve already played the game then you might find something worthwhile with the new playable characters, but if you’re completely new to the series then the walkthrough may offer some useful tips on getting past some of the bosses and through some of the levels.
There is a series of walkthroughs covering not just the main game but each of the characters in the revised campaign mode that spans the likes of five different characters, including Vergil, Dante, Nero, Lady and Trish.
YouTuber Shirrako took the painstaking endeavor to film each of the playthroughs for each of the characters, from start to finish. He kicks things off with Lady and Trish. If you’re only interested in the Trish segments, skip ahead to part 6 in the playlist below.
For the first time in the series players get to control Lady, and she gets a rocket launcher that she can use to rocket jump. She can melee up close with slow but powerful strikes and she gets a shotgun for close-range, massive damage. She can also use a ripcord to launch enemies into the air for additional aerial combos.
Trish is a heck of a lot faster than Lady and has more fast-hitting but lighter moves by comparison, but her combos are insane, allowing for players to rack up style points like crazy.
Up next is Vergil, his playthrough spans the likes of 12 videos and is only a couple of hours long, but it’s action-packed through and through.
The fighting is extremely smooth and Vergil has some of the cleanest animations featured in a Devil May Cry game. It really does put to shame what Ninja Theory did with DmC: Devil May Cry.
Like the others, you can still air-juggle with Vergil and unleash devastating combos. He seems to have a style that could best be described as watching a smoothie of destruction get poured into a cup of badassery.
And finally, here is the walkthrough for both Dante and Nero.
Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition is available right now for home consoles and PC. It has pretty good ratings on Steam and you can learn more by paying a visit to the official website. Also, beware there are some sleazy microtransactions available for the game but they’re nothing more than cash shop goods to help people pay to win.
