A Devil May Cry Even On The iPhone

Devil May Cry 4 is finally on the iPhone and iPod Touch. While you might be surprised to see a Devil May Cry game on a phone, Capcom have actually been producing these since 2005, with each one looking a little better than the last.

 

Devil May Cry 4 Refrain appears to be a port of the same game originally developed for Docomo mobile phones in Japan. In a post Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword world, one might expect an iPhone version of DMC4 to be controlled in a similar fashion to Team Ninja’s Nintendo DS brawler, but Capcom have opted for virtual on-screen buttons instead.

 

Refrain lets you play as Nero, with Dante’s portion of the game being made available later as a downloadable update. For the curious, here’s a look at Capcom’s other Devil May Cry games on the mobile phone front:
