Devil May Cry 5 Director States the Game Takes about 15-16 Hours to Complete; New Information Released


Game Director for Devil May Cry 5 — Hideaki Itsuno, has been showcasing the upcoming highly anticipated game in South Korea, and thanks to the media coverage, some new interesting facts about the game have been released including the games estimated length to beat.

As I mentioned above, the big headline news in the estimated time to clear the game, which Itsuno claims to be around 15 to 16 hours. To me personally, a single-player game with really no open world to explore, a 15-hour game is the perfect length; especially for those fans who are looking to play the game multiple times on harder difficulties and trying to 100 % the game.

Itsuno then goes on to talk about using the RE Engine, the future of the DmC Devil May Cry reboot series, and plenty of other interesting topics. Check out some of the other highlights of the conversation down below:

Why is the story set after Devil May Cry 2?

The reason it is set after Devil May Cry 2 can be understood by playing the game.

What was difficult about using the RE Engine?

Since the RE Engine was originally created for Resident Evil 7: biohazard, it was difficult to implement the violent action of Devil May Cry. We focused on upgrading the engine’s processing speed and performance.

There are three protagonists, so how long will the game take to complete?

The development team took about 15 to 16 hours to clear the game.

The visuals are similar to DmC Devil May Cry, but what is the future of that series?

It might look that way since we were shooting for photo realism, but we were actually aiming for something Hollywood movie-esque like The Avengers. As for the future of DmC Devil May Cry, that is difficult to say.

Will there be additional playable characters

If a lot of users request it, we may add more playable characters.

Are there hidden places, items, enemies, and powerful monsters?

There are a few hidden weapons.
