E3 2018: Devil May Cry 5 Is In Development, Releases in 2019

Lock and load for the new entry of DMC.

52 Comments

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."

Man when I first saw this at the Microsoft presser I thought Nero was emo Dante for a sec and was about to blow up lol. Glad to see we got the real Devil May Cry back I hope in this they allow you to select the 3 different characters manually so if I want to just play as Dante I can and can skip Nero I really didn't like him that much in DMC4. I wonder who the 3rd character is? Personally I hope Vergil.

Hmm never liked Nero; too much of a Dante-wannabe.

Three hunters. If Dante and Nero are two, who is the third? Lucia, Reboot Dante, Virgil, Lady, Trish, or a new character?

@Jinzo_111887: Obviously, it's the 3rd character on the cover. The one with tattoos and black hair.

Nero must have been hanging out with dante because he was never this cocky in DMC4. Either way, its a day one for me.

@juninhotorres: You're not the only one. I would have been very happy to see a sequel to DMC. I really liked the gameplay and was ok with the story but Dante was done so bad.. it killed the game for many fans. I eventually moved passed it but i always understood other fans since i played all the original games. That said, I prefer a sequel to the original series and i really hope DMC 5 is a sequel to DMC 2!!!

Why Microsoft keeps taking franchises and make it their own exclusive (like Tomb Rider 2 back at that time for one year) instead of creating their own exclusives...its annoying.

DMC has been always PlayStation game even before XBOX was created...

@liorafar: dude, microsoft didn't announce a single 3rd party exclusive (also going to ps4 and pc). they didn't even announce a true 1st party exclusive, as every single xbox game is hitting pc as well. no offence, but you seem to be a bit out of the loop and are not familiar with how these conferences work. the only exception to this rule was rise of the tomb raider a few years ago which was a 1 year exclusive. that is an anomaly within the industry.

@liorafar:

They have to buy the right to show it at their conference,

and in exchange many people are fooled into thinking it's their own exclusive,

then they buy an Xbox when they don't need to. It's a XB1/PS4/PC title.

Looks awesome, can’t wait. Just show us a new Onimusha now. Is it too much to ask for a new Dino Crisis?

Nero looks so different than before with the shorter hair. Not only that but his face isn't the same either. The new girl looks good but her voice sounds a bit Texan. Who knows maybe she's from Texas lol. And Dante at the end... omg.... he looks and sounds like an old man with that beard and rough voice~!! :o

Meh. I hoped it would be a sequel to Ninja Theory's DmC, which was the first good game in the franchise for me. Too bad. Back to weeb mediocrity I guess.

@Berserk8989:

That Ninja Theory game was fucking terrible Dante looked like an Emo crackhead and everyone else in the game looked just ugly as hell. Even the levels looked like shit the whole thing just had this ugly gritty look all over it that seriously killed it's aesthetics even the demons looked like crap. I'm glad that game will be forgotten in the annals of history hopefully never to be seen again .

@Berserk8989: ninja theory needs to make a new ip incorporating that gameplay style. I personally like Bayonetta better than DMC, but I also think NT missed an opportunity with hellblade in that regard.

Well now that they are owned by Microsoft maybe they will get some major funding to come up with something truly incredible that has that styling of gameplay.

@deactivated-5b2c8e0382c99: He's not the only one that feels this way, but it is a minority. Personally I liked the game but wasn't exactly clamoring for a sequel (I loved all the games, and though I like OG Dante better DmC wasn't ruined for me or anything).

Then I played the Vergil DLC. Honestly that did get me kind of hyped for DmC 2, but once they took some of DmC Vergil and combined him with OG Vergil in DMC4 S.E. I pretty-much assumed they had abandoned the DmC universe.

Regardless, I think anyone who calls themselves a Devil May Cry fan nowadays should be happy regardless of their thoughts on the reboot. This game almost seems like an olive branch to both sides of the controversy, since it seems to be pulling some aesthetic and thematic elements from DmC for use in DMC5.

So Nero lost his right arm, and it was taken by a mysterious caped man. And the time has passed since DMC4? Wow! Finally.......

Now... who is that caped man who took Nero's devil arm? Is it................. no....... it can't be... can it be "him"....????

It's Vergil he probably ripped Nero's arm off when getting Yamato back from him I'm almost sure of it.

Almost didn't recognize Nero, I take it he's since joined Dante's company then? Also, I find it funny that MS showed off DMC but aborted its little brother in the womb lol.

OMG I cant believe it. Capcom is finally listening to their fans.

I'm seriously at a loss of words, I lost all hope when DmC was released. To hear that they're going back to the original and doing DMC5 almost brings a tear to my heart.

Day one purchase no questions asked.

@DeadPhoenix86:

As someone who likes DMC 1, 3, 4, and plays them at a very high level, DmC was a truly excellent game,

and anyone who can't admit that is so desperate to appear cool that they feel all they can do is kiss the ass of a non-existent video game character so hard that they absorb some of his swagger in through their mouth.

@Marky360: Then why was it universally acclaimed? Why did it get higher scores than pretty much any other game in the series, across the board? Why was it loved by half of series veterans, and all of series newcomers?

*spoiler*

cause it's great and you're immature and wrong.

No he didn't sweety. He said he hated the new Dante, but the game was great. I watched that review.

Have you really deluded yourself that much that you can't even hear any praise at all? You must have, because the internet is full of it.

The metacritic for that game was higher than DMC2, higher than the original DMC3 edition, 2% behind DMC:SE, and higher than DMC4. It's statistically the best DMC game in 12 years, and better than most of the series.

The fact that one angry, immature little kid can't see that because he too busy screaming about the colour of some virtual hair, doesn't change that. Time to grow up I think.

I have to say, even though most of them are also for PS4 (like DMC 5 and vesperia) overall xbox has a very strong E3 so far, 2018/2019 will be a very exciting year for games
