Ninja Theory's DmC: Devil May Cry reboot tells the story of half-demon Dante's quest to figure out why his hair isn't grey anymore. Actually, it's probably about fending off an apocalyptic demon invasion. We'll know for sure when the PC port arrives January 25, Capcom announced (opens in new tab) yesterday.

Unlike its console counterparts, DmC's PC version doesn't limit its FPS range (60+ for PC, says Capcom) and includes full support for Steam achievements, leaderboards, and cloud saving. It also works with controllers in addition to mouse-and-keyboard setups.

Considering the studio's acknowledgment of what happens with "trivialized" ports (opens in new tab) , we have hope that DmC will arrive on PC smoothly.
