After waiting for around 11 years, Devil May Cry fans are finally getting Devil May Cry 5. Capcom announced the title during E3 2018, and the trailer revealed Dante’s comeback as well as a third mysterious character as of the time of writing. Luckily, the studio planned a livestream tomorrow at 8:00 PM JST, featuring director Hideaki Itsuno and producers Michiteru Okabe and Matthew Walker. The stream’s timing shortly after E3’s conclusion hints towards new information, especially with the stream’s description reading “hottest information”
• Legendary action series returns – The 16 million unit selling series is back with original Director Hideaki Itsuno at the helm of development. • A battle of good and evil – A demonic invasion begins with the seeds of a “demon tree” taking root in Red Grave City. This hellish incursion attracts the attention of the young demon hunter, Nero, an ally of Dante who now finds himself without his demonic arm, the source of much of his power. The supernatural family drama also continues as Dante, the Son of Sparda, seeks revenge for his brother’s corruption and mother’s murder.
• High octane stylized action – Featuring three playable characters each with a radically different stylish combat play style as they take on the city overrun with demons. • Groundbreaking graphics – Developed with Capcom’s in-house proprietary RE engine, the series continues to achieve new heights in fidelity with graphics that utilize photorealistic character designs and stunning lighting and environmental effects.
• Take down the demonic invasion – Battle against epic bosses in adrenaline fueled fights across the over-run Red Grave City.
• Demon hunter – Nero, one of the series main protagonists and a young demon hunter who has the blood of Sparda, heads to Red Grave City to face the hellish onslaught of demons, with weapons craftswoman and new partner-in-crime, Nico.
Devil May Cry 5 is expected to release before March 2019. Here is a link to the stream below.
