Capcom has released The Eye of Dante, a free app developed in collaboration with Augmented Reality studio Aurasma to support the release of DmC Devil May Cry. It's now in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.
The Eye of Dante will reward users with in-game currency that can be redeemed within the menu of the console versions of the game when DmC Devil May Cry launches on January 15, 2013.
By joining The Order (theorderblog.net), the organisation within the world of DmC formed to fight demons, users of the app are challenged to undertake different quests and achieve specific goals to attain points towards their style ranking.
Completion of missions will result in exclusive unlockable rewards such as wallpapers and ringtones, as well as points which can then be redeemed within DmC Devil May Cry for Red Orbs, the in-game currency used to upgrade and unlock Dante’s skills.
By using your smartphone's camera, The Eye of Dante also allows you to discover hidden messages behind real-world items and objects, just as Dante has the ability to see through the demons’ lies and propaganda in the game.
In addition to the in-game awards, The Eye of Dante also lets you personalise photos that have been taken with your smartphone and upload these to Facebook or Twitter.
