E3 2018: Devil May Cry 5 Is In Development, Releases in 2019
Lock and load for the new entry of DMC.
Devil May Cry 5 made its debut at Microsoft's E3 2018 press conference, and it did so with the spectacular, over-the-top flair we expect from the series. The game is being developed by Capcom internally, and the trailer starred Nero, the character featured primarily in Devil May Cry 4.
In typical Devil May Cry fashion, the combat looks to be smooth and stylish, and Nero looks to be using Red Queen, the sword from Devil May Cry 4, as well as a replacement for the Devil Bringer ability that uses a new robotic. The trailer ended with a long-haired Dante briefly speeding by on a motorbike.
Devil May Cry V is expected to release in Spring 2019. Director Hideaki Itsuno also appeared on stage to say this is a "true" sequel to the last numbered entry in the series. Devil May Cry 5 features fully-costumed models that have been scanned into the game and the "best minds at Capcom" are working on the controls. According to Itsuno, it feels better than any action game Capcom has previously created.
The new game comes "complete with its signature blend of high-octane stylized action and otherworldly and original characters the series is known for," according to a press release. "Years have passed since the legions of hell have set foot in this world, but now a new demonic invasion has begun, and humanity's last hope will rest in the hands of three lone demon hunters, each offering a radically different play style. United by fate and a thirst for vengeance, these demon hunters will have to face their demons if they hope to survive. The devil you know returns in the most over the top, technically advanced, utterly insane action experience of this generation."
