Now Playing: The History Of Devil May Cry

Whether you're already deep into Devil May Cry 5, which just released on March 8, or haven't had a chance to pick up the latest game, you may find this news exciting: Devil May Cry: The Animated Series is currently available for free from the PlayStation Store.

If you're thinking, I didn't even know Devil May Cry had an anime, here's a quick catch-up: The DMC anime released in Japan in 2007 and consists of 12 episodes. Set between the events of Devil May Cry and Devil May Cry 2, the anime follows devil hunter Dante, who's running his business and taking odd jobs while struggling with crippling debt. The show also introduces two regular characters: J.D. Morrison, Dante's agent who brings him job requests, and Patty Lowell, an orphan girl Dante rescues who becomes like a daughter to him. Morrison makes his first appearance in the video game series with Devil May Cry 5, so you'll have to watch the anime to understand his full backstory with Dante.

How to watch Devil May Cry: The Animated Series on PSN

The DMC anime is available to purchase and watch for free in the PlayStation store right now, but you can only access it through your PS4, rather than the web store. The deal also appears to be limited to the North American store (although some people on Reddit have commented that it's not free for them in Canada).

To access the series, head to the PlayStation Store on your PS4 and search "Devil May Cry." The anime should pop up alongside the games. If you're not seeing it there, try searching under Movies and TV -> TV Genres -> Anime, and then sort A to Z to find Devil May Cry. Normally, the series is $25 to purchase, and it's unclear how long it'll be listed as free, so don't wait long if you're interested in watching.

While Devil May Cry is on your mind, read our Devil May Cry 5 review, and pick up the new game if you're ready to bash some demons.

I wouldn't even watch it if it was free...there's no devil trigger until the last episode.

I think this may have been a store glitch being that it's no longer available free.

I'd rather have an uncensored version of the game then a crappy adaptation I seen already Sony.

@marportex: It's one extra lens flare on Trish compared to the Xbox/PC version which only censor Lady. But yeah it's weird. I heard some rumour that Xbox's Trish scene got censored in the latest patch too but I don't know if that's accurate.
