Devil May Cry is one of the most popular gaming series. The Game Awards 2018 event actually revealed a new trailer for Devil May Cry 5. In the video, it was revealed that the game will be getting an Xbox One exclusive demo. The demo will be available beginning of December 7 until January 6. CAPCOM also revealed that it has replaced the vocalist for “Subhuman”, which is one of the game’s songs.
The original vocalist, Eddie Hermida, has been accused of asking a 17-year old girl for some revealing photos and CAPCOM hinted about these accusations in their announcement. The game will be launched on March 8, 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Here is how the game is described by CAPCOM:
Years have passed since the events of Devil May Cry 4, and a lot has happened. Young demon hunter Nero has lost his Devil Bringer demon arm… but hey! He’s now heading his own branch of the demon-hunting business Devil May Cry. To make up for that lost arm, and keep his style rankings up, he’s enlisted the help of expert craftswoman Nico, a brand new character in the series, to lend a hand and build different types of prosthetic arms that unlock new badass combat abilities and devastating powers.
The game is being directed by Hideaki Itsuno. It will feature three playable characters and that includes Nero, the protagonist of Devil May Cry 4 and Dante, who is the main protagonist of the first three games in the series. The last release in the series was Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition, which was launched in June 2015 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. This edition of the game is an updated version of the original Devil May Cry 4, which came out in 2008.
CAPCOM released the Devil May Cry HD Collection set for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in North America on March 13. The collection contains the first three games in the series.
Devil May Cry celebrated its 15th anniversary in 2016. The game series has inspired a television anime, novels, manga, and stage play crossover with Sengoku Basara.
