Dante has nine circles of hell to travel through in his quest to save his lost love, but first he has to get there. Players will be able to take the first steps on this epic journey in next month's Dante's Inferno demo. Our hero battles from the surface to the fabled gates, slashing his way through hordes of enemies towards his first boss encounter - Death. When the first boss you encounter is Death, you know you're in trouble...or you're playing a Castlevania game.
"Our main goal from the start of this project has been to create a journey that will make gamers truly feel like they are going through hell," said executive producer Jonathan Knight. "The demo will give everyone some insight into how we are treating the story and a taste of the gameplay. And with nine more circles of hell to explore once the game comes out in February, we are literally just scratching the surface."
Dante's Inferno is indeed out in full retail form on February 9th in North America and the 12th in Europe. For extra-added fun with the demo next month, be sure to moan "I wasn't even supposed to be here today!" over and over again as you play.
