Devil May Cry PSP Surfaces On Capcom's Japanese Website
It has been a couple years since we heard that Devil May Cry may become a reality on the PSP, and since then, the handheld action extravaganza dropped completely off the radar. Most have just assumed the project was scrapped a long time ago, but according to a recent Japanese Capcom game listing, DMC PSP might still be on the way.
VHF stumbled across this listing, and there it is, at the top of the list of recently released and unreleased PSP titles. Now, if for some reason this was a mistake and Capcom has removed the game, Joystiq took a screen capture of it, just to prove that Devil May Cry was indeed listed there. This could be nothing, or...it could be something. Capcom is making an appearance at E3 this year, and their press conference is set for July 15, so perhaps they'll have an announcement on this subject. PSP owners are certainly hoping they do; DMC is one of the best action franchises in recent history. While it may be superior on consoles, a handheld version (if done correctly) ought to kick ass. Devil May Cry 4 was awesome, remember.
If Capcom decides to comment on this, we'll be sure to tell you about it. In the meantime, perhaps we can once again start hoping for a portable Dante...
