Devil May Cry 4 Guide
Devil May Cry 4 FAQ/Walkthrough
This guide should be up on many of the gaming sites later today. Finally decided to go ahead and send out the guide even though I'm still working on it. I'll probably be updating it daily or once every few days.
Been working on this one since the game was released in the US. The ASCII art was started about a month before the game was released. I think I've set a new standard for myself when it comes to boss battles this time - try some two page long essay explanations on for size!
Like I did with Resident Evil:UC, I'll update this post as I update the guide and I'll probably keep this post at the top, so look below this post to see any new posts. Gotta keep plugs up above the rest of the stuff. ;)
UPDATE - 3/4
Ah, the first in the many slew of updates!
Added some extra bits of information for the Nero and Dante Berial boss fight - using Enemy Step for Nero and using Pandora's Argument for Dante. Bianco, Blitz, and Frost are now in the enemies section of the guide. Thanks to Seph, I added some pics to the Bonus Art section of the Extras section. That about wraps it up for today. Click here or click the link to the right of this page for the update. You'll always be able to find the update on this site first.
Just a note, if anyone emails me within the next few days, I might not get back to you for a while. I'll be off the net for a few days this week - just don't know when. That means updates for this guide won't come every day also. I'm in the process of getting a new comp. Finally moving out of the stone age over here. *gasp*
UPDATE - 3/5
Scarecrow and Mega Scarecrow are now listed up under the Enemies section. Added and edited some information about taunts and Devil Triggers for Nero and Dante in the Basics section. Click on the link to the right for the update.
Looks like I won't be doing without a comp this week after all - that's next week, so I'll probably have updates almost daily until then.
UPDATE - 3/6
Assault, Gladius, and Cutlass were added to the Enemies section. Frost overview was updated a bit and some extra strategies were added. Distorted Real Impact timing was changed a bit and I added a url to a thread for other advanced techniques with Dante under his advanced techniques section.
For some extra advanced techiniques with Dante - Distortions and Gilgamesh Just Charge - visit Malcolm90K's thread on IGN.
UPDATE - 3/7
Basilisk and Fault were both added to the Enemies section. Made a correction with Dante's Shredder and added Round Trip to his move list.
UPDATE - 3/8
Chimera Seed, Chimera (Chimera Scarecrow), and Chimera Assault were all added to the Enemies section. Added a mention of using Gun Stinger on Frost also.
This is a special update since it falls on my birthday and therefore that makes it special. I'll be 28 later today! Yay...? I suppose so.
UPDATE - 3/10
Mephisto was added to the Enemies section. Quite a few additions were made throughout the walkthrough, most notably to the Bael boss fight with Nero. Big thanks to Binary, MortimerV, and Brian for their extra info!
All that's left now is Faust, Alto Angelo, and Alto & Bianco Formation for the Enemies section. I might just cancel the Characters section and continue on to a Bloody Palace section. There's really no need for a Character's section - I'm starting to feel that it would be more filler like info that fans already know.
UPDATE - 3/14
Faust was added to the enemies section. Distortions and Gilgamesh Just Charge were added to Dante's advanced techniques section. Big thanks to Malcolm90K for allowing me to post these techniques in my guide!
UPDATE - 4/9
Alto Angelo and Alto and Bianco formation are now included in the enemy section - bosses will come at a later date. A few corrections were made here and there and more moves were added to Dante's Devil Trigger section. A much bigger update than this will come in a few days - just wanted to finish up with the normal enemies.
UPDATE - 4/11
The "red orb locations" section has now been changed to "red orb guide". I took out my information and replaced it with the_blood_wolf's info. There is also a Bloody Palace Guide written by the_blood_wolf now included in the main guide as well. Big thanks to the_blood_wolf, Shinso_Shikai and butterfly_2689 for allowing me to use their strategies in my guide!
Since my red orb locations and the_blood_wolf's conflict with each other at some points, I'll be redoing some of the locations in the main guide in order to match his.
UPDATE - 4/17
Nothing special was added, just proofread up to Mission 8. Meh.
UPDATE - 4/28
Proofread up to Mission 14.
UPDATE - 5/12
Yeah, it's a future date I know. This will be up on the gaming sites on Monday. Anyway, the rest of the walkthrough should be free of errors now since I finished going over the whole thing walkthrough portion. If you find any errors then just email me about him - no matter how small, I'm picky.
