The Devil May Cry HD Collection, featuring high definition versions of the first three games in the hit action series, will be released in early 2012 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, Capcom has announced.

Each game will sport high definition visuals with updated textures, widescreen support, and Trophies/Achievements.

Devil May Cry debuted in 2001 and set a new benchmark in the action genre. This was followed by Devil May Cry 2 in 2003 and three years later by Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening Special Edition.
