Devil May Cry 5 picks up where Devil May Cry 4 left off, and it features three playable characters: Dante (long-time series protagonist), Nero (the star of Devil May Cry 4) and an unknown character in a long black trench vest. Nero historically has a demon-powered arm called Devil Bringer, and it’s ripped from his body at the beginning of Devil May Cry 5. It’s replaced by a series of robotic arms (called Devil Breakers) created by Nero’s partner in demon-fighting crime, Nico. Each arm has a different ability, allowing Nero to execute a wide array of combos in a single fight.
We got our hands on Devil May Cry 5 at Gamescom and will be posting our impressions, alongside an interview with Hideaki Itsuno, shortly. To satiate your curiosity until then, Capcom showed off a new trailer for Devil May Cry 5 during today’s livestream, and developers have promised to provide more information about Dante’s role during Tokyo Game Show in September.
