1449812942_3431e5ee7b-copy.jpg Want to get your mits on a Devil May Cry 4 demo as soon as possible and don’t care what language it’s in? Get your Japan accounts up and running, because it’s coming this Thursday.

That’s the news we get from Capcom, formally letting the internet know that the demo will hit on Thursday 24th. Oh and after improving our Japanese translating skills, that’s the TGS demo on both Xbox Live and the Playstation Store.

The rest of the world will have to wait until the 31st for the demo, but you should have a Japan account by now anyway. Another recent goody on the Japan Playstation Store? A PixelJunkMonsters demo to get you ready for the Western release of the full game…go have a gander.

Update: We’ve got word straight from Capcom that the DMC demo will also be on the US PSN and XBL this Thursday 24th! That’s a week earlier than we expected. Sadly, us Euro folks will have to wait another week, but you should have US accounts anyway.

Warm those broadband connections. The Devil May Cry® 4 playable demo hits both the PLAYSTATION®Store and Xbox LIVE® Marketplace this Thursday, January 24, 2008.

The demo introduces gamers to the gothic-inspired supernatural world of Devil May Cry 4, new protagonist Nero and the awesome power of his Devil Bringer.

The demo consists of a sampling of sections from the full game, chosen to showcase Devil May Cry 4’s varied locales, allowing gamers to familiarize themselves with Nero’s unique abilities. Players will receive instruction on the various new actions that the Devil Bringer bestows, such as the ability to slam creatures to the ground, cover great distances in a single bound or even grab enemies while on the ground or in the air and pull them towards Nero to continue an attack combo.

The Exceed system allows Nero to “rev up” his sword as if it were a motorcycle throttle and unleash devastating attacks. Players will need to master all these techniques before the end-of-demo showdown with the mighty Berial.

Fully demonstrating the power of the next generation of consoles, the Devil May Cry 4 demo brings to life the coastal city of Fortuna and its surroundings in exquisite detail, such as the port and the snow-capped mountain ranges. Devil May Cry 4 delivers its intense action at a constant 60 frames per second at 720P resolution on HD monitors, ensuring seamless and breathtaking gameplay in stunning high definition.
