Devil May Cry HD Collection coming to PS3 early 2012

Devil May Cry HD Collection

The problem with playing the first three Devil May Cry games is that they’re not in HD. The solution? HD remakes. Capcom has announced just that with the appropriately-named Devil May Cry HD Collection, due early 2012.

Devil May Cry 1, 2 and 3: Dante’s Awakening Special Edition will all get the HD treatment and as the screenshots show, they’re looking as pleasant as games about slicing and dicing the forces of darkness with a giant sword can possibly look.

Resident Evil 4′s HD remake did wonders for reinvigorating our enthusiasm for the series, suspiciously just in time for Operation Raccoon City. ICO & Shadow of the Colossus went for the same HD tactic.

With DmC in development, Capcom’s motives are clear, and there’s little to grumble about – as a tool for whipping up interest in a franchise, re-releasing classic titles sure beats screenshots and videos.
