We hope you’re ready for the craziest action game of this generation! Devil May Cry 5 is on its way to the Xbox One family of devices and will rock your socks off with silky-smooth 60fps gameplay, ridiculous weapon combos and abilities, and groundbreaking, high-fidelity graphics powered by Capcom’s own proprietary RE Engine. There’s never been a better time to be a DMC fan!

We’re very excited to be unveiling this new chapter in the Devil May Cry series and can’t wait to show and talk more about it, but first, let’s do a quick refresher on the history and story so far…

Devil May Cry follows the journey of rival siblings Dante and Vergil, sons of the legendary demon Sparda, as they struggle with demonic invasions, power hunger, and each other. In Devil May Cry 4, young newcomer Nero shows up with his Devil Bringer demonic arm and lots of questions to stir up some trouble as he butts heads with veteran demon hunter Dante. In the end, the two of them part ways amicably and Nero settles down in a tucked away part of Red Grave City.

Leading right into the events of Devil May Cry 5, Nero, now a grown man, has given up his rebellious ways and runs his own demon hunting business: Devil May Cry. He’s even got a new haircut and a demon arm cut of- wait, that’s an important detail… You see, someone (or something?) cut off his demon arm, and he’s not super thrilled about that. But life goes on and he’s found a clever way to keep the shop open and the demons hunted: rad prosthetic arms!

That’s right, arms. Plural. With the help of expert craftswoman Nico, a brand-new character to the series, you’ll get to equip Nero with various unique robot hands capable of crazy abilities and devastating attacks.

If chasing down a demon-arm robber wasn’t enough trouble, a massive demonic invasion has started to sprout out of a menacing demon tree, which has planted itself smack down in Red Grave City. Not necessarily Nero’s lucky day, I’d say.

This fight is not only his, though. Devil May Cry 5 will feature three playable characters, each with their own unique over-the-top playstyles and flair. But that’s a topic for another day. For now, check out the announcement trailer above, featuring Nero’s blood-pumping battle theme by Ali Edwards. We look forward to sharing the next batch of Devil May Cry 5 details later this year at gamescom 2018.

Am hyped. Never did get around to 4 but I have it on Steam. Been ages since I played the first three though so going to have to grab the HD Collection and play through those again.

Also that artwork with the three on the cover.. I'm imagining some kind of 3 player coop mode in the game. :yfire:

I absolutely adored the demo. It was so over the top and flashy that the game easily reminded me of another fave Osaka based development house known for their own type of crazy, Platinum Games.

Its really nice to see Capcom making such a resurgence in gaming. Monster Hunter World continues to impress with its free updates/festivals. I’ve read great things about the RE2 remake and now DmC 5 is looking great. Unfortunately Sekiro comes out at the end of the month and I’m kind of waiting on that so I’m holding off on purchasing any new games right now.

I watched it on twitch. I just saw a dude killing things with a motorcycle. It was dumb. Is that how you play the game?

Have you never played a DMC game before?

If you are a fan of action/fighting games, this thing is exactly what your looking for.

I wouldn't recommend it if you just button mash though. The game shines when you actually use all the tools they give you and go for the stylish playstyle.

Playing the game on human difficulty and I am really enjoying it. I like the cheesy lines, humor and T&A.

Not sure what being connected to the network does.

There are so many combos and moves/ways to make stuff look flashy. This game is seriously good.

If this happens to you, restart the game, then go and restart mission 13 from the start, choose V as your character, and you "should" get past the glitch. That is what I have found online as a consistent work around and it just worked for me. :bang:

Just finished the game. It was funny and over the top. But for my first DMC game I have to say I would probably get DMC6.

Probably an 8 from me.
