Capcom devil-bringing Devil May Cry 4 to iPhone later this month

The game you love to love, then love to hate, then love to fling against a wall in frustration is back.

But now, everyone on the bus gets to kick back and watch your daily installments of Emotional Breakdown Theater.

Slide To Play brings word that Capcom’s polishing off its iPhone/iPod Touch iteration of Devil May Cry 4. Obviously, controls will be simplified, but Devil May Cry Refrain – as it’s known – still looks to be fairly robust with ten levels of hacking, slashing, and wise-cracking.

It’s launching later this month for $6.99, but Dante – sticking to his motif of “totally hip and cool if ‘totally hip and cool’ was neither hip nor cool and also going through a horrible midlife crisis – plans on being fashionably late with a planned free update. Challenge levels could also round out the package down the line, but Capcom’s not making any promises.
