Gamescom 2018 has arrived and so has a slew Devil May Cry 5 news. In a recent press release by Capcom they revealed that the game would arrive on March 8th, 2019. That wasn’t the only exciting news to come out however, as they also revealed the first ever playable demo and a brand new trailer showcasing more of the story and gameplay and a look at Dante in action.
The trailer definitely had fans salivating to know more about the new features shown off. Thankfully, gameplay details have also been been outlined in the press release as follows:
- Each Devil Breaker arm sports a unique look and their set of attacks may vary depending on Nero’s position and input. For example, Gerbera can be used to deflect enemy projectiles, or to propel Nero in an evasive maneuver if you add a directional input.
- Devil Breakers can… well… break. You can see Nero do that earlier in the trailer (“Sorry, Nico!”), and you do it intentionally, as tactical move to fend off enemies that get a little too close for comfort, or as a tradeoff to each arm’s ultimate move!
- And to formalize what you just saw at the very end of the trailer, the legendary demon hunter Dante is indeed a playable character in Devil May Cry 5! What do you think of his insane new weapon? 😉
Lastly some exciting news on PAX West was announced. The game will indeed be heading to the convention on August 31st, 2018 and will feature not one, but TWO events for fans. The first is a panel appropriately named “The SSStylish gameplay of Devil May Cry 5” with director Hideaki Itsuno and producers Michiteru Okabe and Matt Walker discussing the gameplay and what makes it so much fun to play. Later that evening “The SSStylish Pizza Party” will be held for fans where Dante’s favorite pizza topping, pepperoni, will be served for attendees. Autographs and meet and greets with the developers will also be part of the celebration.
Devil May Cry 5 will be released on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on March 8, 2019.
