Created by Capcom, the Devil May Cry franchise continues to get more and more adaptations to bring new and old fans through the journey of Dante, the protagonist of this action-based game genre.
The creation of the first Devil May Cry was rather an incident as the developers from Capcom were then working on the new Resident Evil game, which was titled “Resident Evil 4” featuring the rookie cop now turned into a special government agent venturing through the European village looking for the president’s missing daughter.
The first idea that the developers had for this game was not a horror survival, and thus, Devil May Cry was born from this idea, and it has been one of the best games that Capcom has ever put out. It has been almost two decades now that this franchise has been in the works, and we love absolutely every single thing that has been put out there.
The most recent development in the franchise is none other than the anime adaptation by Netflix from the creators who love this series. However, this isn’t the first time that Devil May Cry is getting an anime adaptation, but it has been a while since the anime was released, and now, there is a new update that looks really promising.
If you are looking for the details about what this upcoming adaptation is going to be about, well, you have come to the right place, as we would love to provide all the details for it.
The new Devil May Cry Anime Adaptation
As mentioned, a new Devil May Cry project is coming to Netflix very soon, and fans have been very curious about this adaptation ever since its hints and rumors from 2018. The series is being created by the franchise-loving nerd, Adi Shankar, who is also the showrunner and executive producer of this coming adaptation.
The series has been in work under him ever since the first announcement in 2018. The creator of this upcoming adaptation, Adi Shankar, is famous for producing violent game fare like Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix and Castlevania.
Adi Shankar’s upcoming Devil May Cry will focus on the boring of the series as it will see the protagonist in his youngest form ever. This project inspired the prequel known as Devil May Cry 3: Dante’s Awakening. This suggests that this Devil May Cry adaption will be more about the upcoming age of the story in the most Dante way.
This anime adaptation will be pretty usual, like most of the Netflix series featuring 8 series episodes in the first season. Studio Mir is going to be in charge of creating the series from the ground and is known for many amazing works, including The Legend of Korra, My Adventures with Superman, and Dota: Dragon’s Blood.
As of this writing, there isn’t an exact release date released for the series, but it has been confirmed to start streaming in 2024. The latest Netflix Geeked event also revealed much other info on various adaptions, including the most hyped project, Avatar: The Last Airbender.
Adi Shankar Wants You To Be Excited For The New Devil May Cry
In the revelation of the new Devil May Cry, Adi Shankar, the creator of the series, had a lot to say about the series, and he wants the fans to be very excited about it.
The video talking about the first look for the series shows Adi Shankar that he doesn’t want the fans of the beloved franchise to worry as he is also a fan of the franchise and has been working hard to make the best of the series.

He goes on to say that with his partner, Alex Larsen, they have been working on this series since its first announcement in 2018. He additionally adds that their goal isn’t just to put out another animated show, but he wants this to be one of the best things on Netflix.
Seeing that the bars from the recent One Piece adaptation, the bar for everything has risen, and we are going to see how true Netflix stays to the newer adaptation starting with Avatar and then Devil May Cry later next year.
