Get ready for some stylish fighting, Devil May Cry 5 is coming to the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
At TGS 2018, Capcom revealed new info on the latest entry of the Devil May Cry series, including the very first look at the gameplay for longtime protagonist, Dante.
While he does look older than his last appearance in DMC 4, Dante hasn’t lost a step in his ability to slay demons, and, most importantly, look good while doing it. Dante’s trusty sword Rebellion and dual handguns Ebony & Ivory return to his arsenal, and are joined by some new weapons shown in the TGS demo.
The first are a set of of gauntlets and greaves called “Balrog”, which gives Dante the ability to land devastating fire-infused punches and kicks on enemies. The other weapon shown was “Cavaliere”, a set of dual chainsaw-like swords…which also happens to be a rideable motorcycle.
Dante’s Swordmaster, Gunslinger, Trickster and Royal Guard styles also make a return, and players will be able to switch between them on the fly, opening up a ton of opportunities for highlight reel-worthy combos.
Devil May Cry Playable Characters
Capcom also revealed that Dante’s longtime partners Trish and Lady will appear in DMC 5, and introduced a brand new character, V. V will be the 3rd playable character in the game along with Dante and Nero, but not much else is known about him besides his apparent love of poetry and an uncanny resemblance to Adam Driver.
Devil May Cry 5 is set to be released on March 8, 2019.
The deluxe edition of the game will feature several bonuses, including an exclusive Mega Buster Devil Breaker weapon for Nero.
