Devil May Cry 5 announced
A new entry in the action game series is coming in 2019
Capcom has today announced that Devil May Cry 5, the latest title in the iconic 16 million unit selling action series, is in development.
Director Hideaki Itsuno and the core team have reunited to conclude the long awaited Sons of Sparda saga. Several years have passed in Devil May Cry 5 and the threat of demonic power, long since forgotten, has returned to menace the world once again. The demonic invasion begins with the seeds of a “demon tree” taking root in Red Grave City. This hellish incursion attracts the attention of the young demon hunter, Nero, an ally of Dante who now finds himself without his demonic arm, the source of much of his power.
Capcom’s proprietary in-house RE Engine powers the game, featuring photorealistic character designs and new lighting and environmental effects. The game features three playable characters, each of which offer a radically different stylish combat play style as they take on the city overrun with demons.
Devil May Cry 5 will be released on PC, Xbox One, PS4 in early 2019.
