Devil May Cry 5
Earlier this week, Capcom unveiled Devil May Cry 5 at the Microsoft conference at E3 2018. The sequel to Devil May Cry 4, a decade has come and gone since the last numbered title. To be more specific, Capcom and Ninja Theory released a controversial reboot to the series in 2013. Despite otherwise good reception for its game mechanics, DmC: Devil May Cry was notorious for changing the entire storyline and characters of the series, drawing the ire of many fans. Devil May Cry 5, however, promises a fresh, reviving experience for the series and fans alike.
Devil May Cry 5 seeks to return to form of the series. The storyline continues after DMC4 and features classic characters, such as Nero, Dante, and Vergil. The trailer’s start features Nero with a female companion, slaying demons and using his Blue Rose. Featuring some fresh character designs and the series’ debut on current-gen systems, Devil May Cry 5 seeks to impress with its beautiful visuals and visceral combat.

Return of Devil May Cry
Make no mistake. Devil May Cry remained a heavily demanded series for the last ten years. Despite the good reviews for Devil May Cry 4, some flaws held the game back from its full potential. Rrepeating stages as Dante offered little variety in level design elements. It ended up being a major flaw in an otherwise liked game. Shortly afterwards, Devil May Cry disappeared, save for the aforementioned reboot. While Bayonetta and God of War kept the genre warm, the likes of Dante and everyone else have been missing for a long time.
While Capcom released Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition and an HD trilogy collection for PS4, they’ve kept tight-lipped on the series’ future until now. With Devil May Cry 5, Nero’s story will develop. Perhaps it will address theories, such as the suggestion that his father is none other than Vergil, antagonist of Devil May Cry 3 and brother of Dante. In addition, the story seems to hint at an apocalyptic scenario. While demon invasions are fairly common in the series, this one brings vibes of Resident Evil 6, spreading the crisis to something much bigger than before.
Devil May Cry 5 will be available in Spring 2019 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam. Pre-order the game today and keep checking TheBiem for updates!
