The demon-infested hundred-floor tower from past Devil May Cry games is back, according to Capcom in its official blog. It will be available by downloading a free update, shortly after DmC’s release. No specific date was given for the update’s availability.

Except for the first game, the Devil May Cry franchise offers a secret mode that enables players to fight against groups upon groups of enemies in a series of platforms, connected by teleporters.
In both the 2nd and the 3rd game, the Bloody Palace has 9999 floors that can be climbed either one at a time, 10 by 10 or even 100 by 100, with specific teleporters available for the player to choose. In Devil May Cry 4, however, there are only 101 floors and the player must complete them all.
The ever-growing difficulty along with the recurring boss battles have made Bloody Palace the ultimate challenge for fans of the Devil May Cry series, ultimately leading to significant prizes such as hefty amounts of in-game money or overpowered versions of playable characters, effectively making the game a cakewalk.
DMC launches on January 15 (18 for Japan) for the PS3 and Xbox 360. The PC version is scheduled for January 25. Check out some images from the game:
