10 years after Devil May Cry 4, fans of the series are getting a true sequel. Microsoft announced Devil May Cry V is coming spring 2019. It gave audiences a first look during its E3 2018 press conference, and you can watch the presentation in the video above.
As you can see, Devil May Cry V will feature more of slick, stylish combat the series is known for. Director Hideaki Itsuno appeared on stage, speaking about Capcom’s efforts to make the game’s combat and controls a superior experience. Capcom is developing the game internally, and the trailer showed Nero, as he appears to be using Red Queen, the sword from Devil May Cry 4.
Capcom also says the studio has strived to create “world class visuals” with the game. Itsuno also said on stage to say this is a “true” sequel to the last numbered entry in the series. According to him, it feels better than any action game Capcom has previously created.
A few other details were shared in a subsequent press release. It describes DMC5 thusly: “A brand-new entry in the legendary over-the-top action series comes to Xbox One in spring 2019, complete with its signature blend of high-octane stylized action and otherworldly and original characters the series is known for. Years have passed since the legions of hell have set foot in this world, but now a new demonic invasion has begun, and humanity’s last hope will rest in the hands of three lone demon hunters, each offering a radically different play style. United by fate and a thirst for vengeance, these demon hunters will have to face their demons if they hope to survive. The devil you know returns in the most over the top, technically advanced, utterly insane action experience of this generation.”
