We have some further good news for those of you planning to pick up Devil May Cry later this month when it releases on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. The Bloody Palace has become a very popular additional game mode aside to the main single player mode and you’ll be glad to hear that the mode will once again be featured in Ninja Theory’s reboot game, allowing you to test your skills across wave upon wave of enemies that increase in difficulty.
Prior to release, we have told you about some early reviews that went live for the game, positive reviews we may add which cast the reboot in a very good light. We then provided you with some detailed gameplay footage showing off some of the story mode missions and bosses that will be included in the game.
Now Capcom has confirmed on their blog that the Bloody Palace is returning to Devil May Cry and just like the mode in previous games in the franchise, it’s going to be a free download again. Capcom hasn’t said exactly when this will happen, but they did say that the update will be taking place after launch.
You’ll also be pleased to hear that the Bloody Palace in DmC won’t contain the tedious 9,999 floors of enemies like we saw in Devil May Cry 2+3. Instead there will be around 100 levels to go through and hopefully there will be some nice rewards in place as well such as exclusive weapons or costumes.
Capcom has also confirmed that there will be at least five uber hard bosses to deal with as you progress through the Palace as well, so that’s something for DmC veterans to look forward to. Let us know if you have played this bonus mode on older games in the past and if you managed to complete it or not. Is it worth trying once you have completed the game?
