"Players will experience fast-paced hack-n-slash combat as they fend off waves of enemies before taking on the ultimate battle against Death.

"After defeating this boss, Dante will be armed with Death's scythe, a powerful holy cross, and will be ready to tear open the Gates of Hell. The demo also features two stunning cinematic movies made by Blur, the award-winning visual effects, animation and design studio."

The full game hits shelves on February 12 over here (Feb 9 in US) for PS3, 360 and PSP.
