V brings to the table an entirely new play style to the Devil May Cry series, using the most unlikely of weapons: a cane. At first this seems to pale in comparison to Dante’s and Nero’s arsenals, but that’s where V’s three unique demons come in: the thunderbird Griffon, the swift panther Shadow, and the towering Nightmare. And the best part is each demon is controlled independently, which lends itself to sick and over-the-top combos. I can’t wait to see the craziest of combos when you get hands-on time with V.
The game is primarily a single player experience, but director Itsuno-san and the team really wanted to tell an epic story with three distinct perspectives and play-styles, where the main protagonists run into each other and collaborate from time to time. So to make that a reality, they’ve implemented a system where, while connected to the Internet, players will make guest cameo appearances in each other’s games in real time, or through ghost data gameplay recordings. Depending on the mission, you’ll see another player in the background, but in other cases, you’ll actually be slicing and dicing demons side-by-side with another players!
That’s right: Bloody Palace is making a return! The development team is still ironing out the details and balance adjustments, so we’re expecting to deploy this as a free update in April 2019, shortly after the game’s release. Stay tuned for more details around launch (March 8, 2019).
Xbox One Demo:
And finally, we have just announced our first Devil May Cry 5 demo, available as of December 7, exclusively on Xbox One! This will be similar to our events demo, where you play as young demon hunter Nero with his trusty Red Queen sword and Blue Rose hand cannon as well as Overture and Gerbera Devil Breakers. You’ll be able to play through nearly an entire mission, with the epic fight against Goliath waiting for you at the end. This demo will be available for download from December 7, 2018 until January 6, 2019.
