Devil May Cry 4 Refrain (CAPCOM), coming end of January?

The most impressive game shown off by Capcom yesterday was a mobile version of the 2008 console title Devil May Cry 4. Similar to Resident Evil 4: Platinum on iOS, Devil May Cry 4 Refrain will feature the bulk of the console title experience reworked to be mobile and touch screen friendly. The game will use many of the art assets from the console version and follow the same storyline, broken up into 10 stages and 8 boss fights. You'll play as Nero from the console version, with his demonic arm weapon the Devil Bringer. Series mainstay Dante will be present in various ways throughout Nero's exploits, and Capcom is planning on adding an update in the future that will actually let you play as Dante and see the story from his perspective.

After trying out Devil May Cry 4 Refrain, I was really surprised with how well it works on touch screen. The DMC series is notoriously difficult on consoles, with complex combo systems that require accurate controls to pull off. Capcom has definitely tweaked this aspect for the iOS version. Controls consist of a virtual joystick and 3 action buttons – one for jumping, one for using either your sword or gun, and one that controls the Devil Bringer. This is the simplified control scheme, which automatically determines whether you use long or short ranged attacks based on your characters position. There will also be a normal control mode that splits the sword and gun actions into separate buttons and lets you make the call on when to use which.

I like the Devil May Cry series, but I'm a bit hesitant about this one after that horrible Dead Rising Mobile game.

Videos at IGN. The videos are short and poorly shot, but what you can see looks freaking great...
