Finally Amazon offers gamers the Bone Pack which will make Dante's weapons appear as if made out of Bones. Gamers will also be treated to Orb Harvester which upgrades and enhances Dante's weapons and combos faster.
The game is slated for a January 15, 2013 release on the PS 3 and Xbox 360 and will feature a new looking protagonist. Whereas Dante of priori iterations was known for his white hair, this Dante has a brown-haired crew cut and looks younger. The game was developed by Ninja Theory and is set in a parallel universe to the Devil May Cry series. Dante's brother Vergil will also make an appearance in this game.
There is no information on whether the Wii U will eventually get the game. The same goes for Capcom's other flagship game Resident Evil 6.
