Description

A brand new entry in the legendary over-the-top action series comes in Spring 2019, complete with its signature blend of high-octane stylized action and otherworldly and original characters the series is known for. Director Hideaki Itsuno and the core team have reunited to create the most over the top, technically advanced, utterly insane action experience of this generation.

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 16 million unit selling series is back with original Director Hideaki Itsuno at the helm of development.
A demonic invasion begins with the seeds of a "demon tree" taking root in Red Grave City.
Featuring three playable characters each with a radically different stylish combat play style.
Developed with Capcom's in-house proprietary RE engine, the series continues to achieve new heights in fidelity with graphics that utilize photorealistic character designs and stunning lighting and environmental effects.
Battle against epic bosses in adrenaline fueled fights across the over-run Red Grave City.
Nero, one of the series main protagonists and a young demon hunter who has the blood of Sparda, heads to Red Grave City to face the hellish onslaught of demons, with weapons craftswoman and new partner-in-crime, Nico

Devil May Cry 5 does away with the criminally underrated DmC and returns to the previous continuity. Bringing with it the best qualities of the series as well as a few innovations.

Better the Devil You Know?

Protagonists Nero and Dante return with newcomer V, each with their own unique movesets and playstyles. Nero mixes new and old with his prosthetic arms, known as Devil Breakers. These allow you to pull enemies towards you as well as use an assortment of special moves depending on which model you have equipped. These significantly increase Nero’s playstyle from DMC4 and allow Nero to step out of Dante’s shadow and become his own character.

V is by far the most unique thing to come out of the original DMC series in a long-time. Using demonic familiars to fight rather than swords. V is able to dominate the battlefield for afar, waiting for the perfect moment to deliver final blows to weakened opponents. His playstyle requires patience and planning, which goes against everything previous titles have taught us.

An older and more grizzled Dante brings back his iconic brand of destruction. He can switch seamlessly between four combat styles, much like he did in DMC4, but he can now bring up to four guns too. Allowing for a greater array of combos and much more freedom and a distinct flow to combat.

The Devil is in the Detail

The campaign’s pacing slowly introduces you to this abundance of fighting systems so you’re never overwhelmed. You’ll be given plenty of time to learn and get to grips with each character before the more challenging enemies are introduce to test your skills.

DMC5’s story is thoroughly entertaining with gloriously over-the-top action sequences. Following the events of a single day, focus switches between characters and time in a non-linear fashion. It’s a fun mechanic to keep players engaged, but once you shuffle the events into the correct order you’re left with a fairly predictable story.

A definite highlight of the game is the roster of returning characters and nods to previous events and interactions throughout the series. Fan favourites Trish and Lady return, they don’t add much to the story but it’s nice that they showed up. Nico on the other hand is given more than her fair share of screentime and standouts even amongst the stellar cast of mainstays.

Final Thoughts

DMC5, for the most part, plays it safe and sticks rigidly the series’ traditions. For long-time fans this will be a welcome return to form. What the story lacks in creativity, it more than makes up for in charm and spectacle. The action and fighting systems have more depth and freedom than previous titles allowing for more creativity than ever before.
