Key points

A graphically updated version of Devil May Cry 4 with better shadows, enhanced lighting and tweaked/overhauled effects. Though this version doesn't allow for as high quality Anti-aliasing as the original version.[1]
Features 3 new playable characters (Vergil, Lady and Trish) along with new costumes and pallet swaps for Dante and Nero as well as the new playable characters (However Trish's Gloria and Lady's DMC3 costumes are only available through DLC).
Uses autosaving, as opposed to save slots in the original Devil May Cry 4.

  1. 1.0 1.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/329050/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (329050) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
