In Legendary Dark Knight Mode, first introduced in the PC release of *Devil May Cry 4*, console players will now be able to take on the challenge of fighting hordes of enemies all at once, putting their skills to the ultimate test. In this mode, enemies spawn in greater numbers and with more strength and vitality, allowing players more time to execute longer, more exciting combos.

Further improvements to the game tempo and balancing will be made, while maintaining all the quality of the original game.
Along with these these new features, there will be a set of new costumes and skins that are designed to be completely compatible with in-game cutscenes. This will bring a fresh new look to scenes some fans may have seen before.
