Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition Gets Very Busy Xbox Series X And PS5 Box Art

Capcom's special edition won't be earning any Stylish rank points for its cover art.


Devil May Cry 5's next-gen special edition is getting a physical edition release that includes new and very busy box art. The cover art features not only all three of Devil May Cry 5's original playable characters, Dante, Nero, and V, but is also crammed with a quote from Game Informer’s positive review, a reminder of its Best Action Game win at the 2019 Game Awards and a reminder of Vergil's new playable status. On the Xbox Series X cover art, there are also two quick reminders of its primary visual upgrades.

Some of the highlights on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 include an increased frame-rate, 4K graphics, and several other gameplay modes.

Originally shown off during the last PlayStation 5 showcase, the reveal of Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition focused on how the game was being improved on Sony's new console specifically.

According to the Amazon listing for the Xbox Series X version, Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition will also feature the same PS5 enhancements such as the optional 120 FPS mode across the main campaign, ray tracing effects, Turbo mode, Legendary Dark Knight Mode, and Dante's rogue brother Vergil as a playable devil-slayer.

There is a catch to all of these upgrades, as enabling ray tracing will prioritize resolution and cap the 4K output at 30 FPS, or 60 FPS at 1080p. The special edition will also be a next-gen console exclusive, as PC players are being left out. Xbox One and PS4 players will still be able to purchase Vergil for $5 as a separate DLC addition to the current-gen game if they don't plan to upgrade their consoles.

Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition launches digitally first on Xbox Series X and Series S on November 10 and PS5 on November 12.
