Capcom has revealed Devil May Cry 5 at Microsoft's E3 2018 press conference. The game will feature Nero as the lead hero.
They got JYB too! hnnng
wtf ....DMC (like RE franchise) shoot itself on the foot (i m sticking with Monster Hunter the only IP that Capcom didnt mess up)....how the fk Nero and Dante look??? i dont like them at all (like bastards from trashy DmC remake and og DMC) .....gameplay looks decent but if the characters doesnt inspire you, meh, the game is dead for me
This should be PS4 excluisve.
@mikes..yes totally agree.... would have designed the characters properly DMC4 like
Didn't know you prefered style over substance. Good to know. In all seriousness, don't write off the game just because the characters look different. What lies at the core of DMC is how the characters behave and the combat. DMC4 was also on Xbox, so the designs have nothing to do with exclusivity.
Nero got a haircut 2/10 I don't need a characters appearance to "inspire" me in an action game. He looks fine anyway -.-
Mikes & Naruga - What does that even mean? hahahah. Would have designed the characters properly? Y'all craaaaaazy.
"Didn't know you prefered style over substance. Good to know. " Its DMC. Part of the substance is the style.
Are you kidding me? Nero is back as the main character again
Yeah that's Nero, because his sword has the Rev handle. And they redid his Devil Bringer. Dante shows up at the end riding his bike
@ Sevir, His Devil bringer arm was decapitated, hints of it being used throughout the trailer, and the new "Phantom Pain" arm being used very differently, ugh.. so good.
biggest letdown of the show for me personally
I dont know how to feel... - Nero - Ninja Theory-esque style gameplay
I think it has 3 characters...Dante, this douche bag and Nero...will see!
The douche bag is Nero The one who rips his arm is Vergil Dante looks like a hobo :(
@Heavenly King Seriously? I didnt realise that and why Nero has white hair like dante? I thought this was DMC again lol
Dont think they showed enough gameplay for me to call it similar DmC remake. Isn't this the guy that made DMC 3 and 4? He knows what he's doing... those games are top tier.
Style wise it is.
This has DMC4 style gameplay mate.
It's not NT esque, it's DMC4 with modernized controls and camera... And Yes Nero, he was Dope in DMC4, don't forget the grapple mechanic seen in DmC was just iterative on DMC4's Devil Bringer, that was Nero's Signature gameplay mechanic... Also it seems Virgil is the antagonist again... Because he's regained physical form and returned from hell. And he goes reclaims his Yamato sword, which Nero used in DMC4 to gain his Devil Trigger ability. While also stealing Nero's Devil Bringer. Which is why Nero now has a metal arm with the same functionality. Apparently this takes place directly after Devil May Cry 2 which explains why Dante looks so much older... DMC3 -DMC-DMC4-DMC2 -DMC5. I honestly thought this would have been at Sony's show...
In what world is this gameplay like NT's reboot? People are losing their minds if they think that, lol. Also, what's with everyone going nuts just because of how the character looks have changed? Here's a shocker, people change over time. Hair, facial features, mannerisms, etc. There is nothing wrong with changing the looks of the characters. Anyone complaining about that is just looking for a reason to hate it. How about waiting for more footage before complaining, hm? Is that so hard? (Not specifically talking to you on this one UnSelf, just all the comments I see being immature and jumping to conclusions early.) Not to mention those complaining that Nero is here. It's Devil May Cry 5!! Of course he will be there, it's not like he will just suddenly vanish from the story after 4. What were people expecting?
I honestly though it was Donte. Dante riding the motorcycle? 100% Devil May Cry 2 sequel.
Yes. At the end that was Dante.
Really? I thought it was some random guy with a wig on...LoL J/K
Honestly I thought exactly the same...I was waiting for dmc2 to come up on screen I can;t believe they used Nero again, people want a direct DMC sequel and they go "Gee Whiz...lets not focus on Dante"
Leaks that were correct said it would have 3 playable characters - Nero - Dante - "V" (Probably Vergil)
Bro, what are you talking about? Devil May Cry 5 is a sequel to Devil May Cry 4, we all knew this was going to be the case when it had the number 5 in the title. Just because you don't like Nero's character doesn't mean he should be written out of the sequel to the franchise. He's an already established character in the lore. He's going to be in it, people need to stop whining about it.
This is not the DMC5 I wanted. This is DmC 2: Edgelord Returns. I can't believe this is directed by Itsuno.
Just have faith in him.
Hard to have faith after watching that. The combat looked weak and those performances were awful, not funny, or cool, or edgy, or anything worth being interested in. And Nero again? Why do we keep getting Nero?! Give me Dante, a slice of pizza, a dark world, and a bunch of demons to kill. After Monster Hunter I really thought Capcom had gotten their stuff together. This looks like throwaway trash.
I don’t think so, although his design does look similar to his design in Devil may cry 2, which was the weakest in the series. In any case, I liked the trailer.
Hate the art style.
Art style is fine
Correction: Look: will give it a chance, liked what I saw of the action and know the game's dev history. Still, not all that hot for the "realistic" RE look.
Kudos for giving it a chance.
Nah man, looked slick as, like a more realistic take, loved it.
Looks awesome. Best game of e3 so far
Looks great for sure. Still more hyped for Sekiro but this is a close second so far.
I thought Sekiro looked a little weak for From Software standards. I'm sure it'll be good though, definitely not writing it off yet
Well we haven't seen very much yet. I'm a bit nervous about Activision publishing it but I'm hoping for another From Soft masterpiece.
No. NO! NO! NO! 10 years I waited for THIS?! Capcom you suck. Seriously why does it look like DmC....WHY?!
The character you're playing as IS Nero, from DMC 4, Virgil has escaped Hell and Stole Nero's Devil Bringer and reclaimed the Yamato... If you remember, Yamato belongs to Virgil and Dante told Nero in DMC4 that he can keep it after seeing that it gave Nero access to the devil trigger. Dante is at the end of the trailer riding a bike. Also this is a Direct sequel to DMC2 The chronology goes, DMC3-DMC-DMC4-DMC2 and now DMC5
Ooooh, that was Nero in the beginning?! Wow, I feel stupid now, lol.
Ty for saving me the trouble of spreading this, vote up man.
Ignore. This was just after seeing the trailer that cut out so missed some stuff. Not happy about the aesthetic but still wanting to pre-order when it goes up. Quite a bit more chill now.
Need to see more but Im not to happy with the Ninja theory esque look of it so far.
DMC no more, thats DmC. I dont like it
No.. watch it again dude. RE engine DMC characters, looked slick and what I imagined they'd look like, Nero is a man now and cut his hair, he looks like his own thing other than a Dante/Vergil doppleganger, I dig it after a second viewing. Looks seriously slick and sharp, DMC4 style with the RE engine.
I'm hyped for it, Dante Nero and the DmC gameplay
DMC4 Gameplay with a reworked camera my man, looks tight!
Nero looks like Donte Dante looks like a Hobo :(
I Thought he was at first. Probably did it to subvert expectations for the real Dante reveal at the end.
What would you look like if you spent years in Hell?
Nah? not everyone with short hair looks like each other mate, Nero looks like he's a man now, Donte looked like a.. y'know, junkie edge lord. Dante looks exactly how I think he'd look after DMC2 which this takes place after, he's half human, thus ages, and he's wearing his classic red outfit, stubble don't make you stink my dude. Looks rad all round.
RIP Devil May Cry. It looks awful..
Riiiight rip because you played it, dude you can't judge it and say rip when it's just announced.
This looks ummm...hmmm.
another franchise capcom has westernized the hell out of.
That looked just brilliant, at first I panicked and thought it was the emo twerp but the voice.. fight style.. colour.. Nero with his Joffrey hair cut haha! VERY surprised it was shown at the MS conference, but just brilliant. VERY Happy!!
Devil May Cry: Scalebound + Bayonetta edition
....What the heck is this? I really expected to see old Dante back.
Yeah, i was slightly disappointed. The fans love Dante, he's a huge reason why this series was so loved. This trailer made it seem like he wasn't the central character.
He's there at the end on the bike. Looks like he came back from hell!
Wait, that's actually Nero in the beginning.
Looked pretty sick
Now it looks like that Ninja Theory DMC but without the emo drugs addiction and also were was the hard metal music in the background?, it looks like Capcom took the assets from the DMC emo version and just colored differently, so damn disappointed sadly will not look forward for this, RIP Devil May Cry. :(
You can hear metal music when Dante arrives on his bike. This looks nothing like DmC.
People seem confused. Capcom has made it very clear in the trailer that this is Nero not the DMC 2013. -The sword is Nero's -The title in the car say devil may cry -The music is that horrible metal crap fans wanted back. -Virgil shows up -Dante shows up at the end.
HELL YES!!!! This looks lit. I can't wait for it. Love the style they are going with. Glad they seem to have bought Nero back as well.
