We're used to waiting months before PC versions of Capcom's games see the light of day, but that changes with DmC Devil May Cry.

The first game from the revamped Devil May Cry series, which is being developed by Heavenly Sword creators Ninja Theory, will arrive on PC on 25th January, just days after it arrives on Xbox 360 and PS3 (15th January).

The PC port is being handled by Polish studio QLOC, which also did work on the PC version of Dead Rising 2.

The PC version is designed to leverage AMD's Eyefinitiy multi-display and Crossfire multi-GPU technologies. It will support gameplay via keyboard and mouse as well as the Xbox 360 controller.

Unlike what's been seen in some recent PC ports, DmC will not cap framerates, allowing it to exceed 60 fps.

It is unclear if the retail version of DmC will be Steamworks-enabled, but those who download the game off Steam will receive support for cloud saving, achievements, friends support and leaderboards.

Capcom has also released the minimum and recommended system requirements for the PC version:
