New trailers have been shared and a release date announced for Devil May Cry 5. Like the announcement trailer, the new one mostly features Nero wielding a sword and gun to fight back the forces of hell. The trailer ends with a glimpse of Dante joining the fray, using his motorcycle as a weapon; you can also see 20 minutes of gameplay further below. The game is scheduled to release on March 8, 2019 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

The trailer shows Nero using the series' fluid combat moves to fight back standard demonic enemies on a bridge. Then it shifts and shows him battling against massive boss-like enemies, including one who can float through the air while swinging massive curved swords and others the size of buildings. At one point he rides on a flying skateboard, but that's soon outdone by the arrival of Dante on his weaponized motorcycle, which can split in half to become a sort of dual-wield chainsaw.

This upcoming installment was first announced during Microsoft's E3 2018 presentation. "Years have passed since the legions of hell have set foot in this world," read an accompanying press release, "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." So far we've seen Nero and Dante in action, but the third hero has yet to be revealed. For more on what to expect, check out or Gamescom impressions.

The Devil May Cry series kicked off in 2001 with the release of the PlayStation 2 original. The series continued through 2008's Devil May Cry 4, at which point it came to a halt. Several years passed before DmC: Devil May Cry came out in 2013, acting as a series reboot. Devil May Cry 5 will be a sequel to the 2008 game.
