Following the reveal at Microsoft's E3 2018 press conference, Capcom reached out with a press release with the first information and plenty of visual assets.
Who’s that third guy in the thumbnail I can identify Dante and Nero, but not the one on the right. Funny how Dante isn’t the one in the center though
Vergil is dead
He died as nelo Angelo they can't keep brining him back
I liked it, it gave me rocker kind of vibes that Devil May Cry 3 had. To be honest, it also gave me vibes of the Devil May Cry reboot that everyone hated, which I actually thought was pretty good.
That's not Virgil. Virgil is the one who stole Nero's Devil Bringer in the trailer. Pretty sure he's escaped Hell and brought the incursion back to Earth... He'd have reason to go after Nero, because Nero had his sword Yamato in DMC4 and used it as a conduit to unlock his Devil Trigger.. I have no idea who that 3rd character is, but this seems to take place after DMC2 which also takes place after DMC4
no, the guy has black hair, it's not Vergil
It is Vergil. He's the one that rips off Nero's arm. All 3 are playable.
Abraiel changed the thumbnail, it used to show 3 guys
Probably get blasted with disagrees but maybe its Dunteh from NT's version. Come to find out this whole time hes NOT Dante, DOES exist in this realm, isnt a total douche, and decides to fight alongside the good guys. They could rewrite him. I mean hopefully not but who knows lol. Glad to see the continued story of 4 though. Been saying i want this for a while. Looks likely did a decent job in trying to reboot the feel of the series as well, without straying too far.
Dante's son AKA Nero's rival, i hope!
Good I'm excited
Shame Nero is getting more attention with this, I really just wanted Dante to be front and centre.
I agree, and I liked Nero. I just think Dante should be the lead.
Completely agree with you. My reaction was wtf is Nero here? They even announced that it's going back to the story of Dante, Vergil's corruption, and the murdered Eve... Nero doesnt fit anywhere. Someone in Capcom has a huge hard on for Nero. The other bad thing is they made Nero look like Donte.
3 playable characters. There will probably be decent focus between all three. Hopefully no backtracking this time.
I honestly loved Nero in 4. His fighting style is so much more fluid than Dante's. I never really liked the stance switching with Dante. It wasn't as fluid as it needed to be for fast paced action. I constantly felt like the battle would stop while I switched stances. I'm way more excited to play as Nero again and if Dante is playable they really need to figure out a way to do the stance switching better. I liked in DmC where the trigger being held switched the weapon mid combat. Felt way more fluid than Dante's combat in 3 and 4.
DMC4 wasnt fluid?... I hope thats a joke... https://youtu.be/ny7mLmslkC...
it's no way near as fluid as Dante's ,you were just trash with Dante that's all
@move I must be trash with him haha. I was able to do the Bloody Palace with Nero but couldn't do it with Dante. Is there like a different control scheme or something? I feel like taking my thumb off of the analog stick to switch stances always left me standing there like an idiot waiting to get hit. Maybe I just need to get better with him... 😔
So glad this isn't exclusive as previously rumoured! Wish it was on Switch too though.
Maybe in time.
Doubtful. But not unprecedented.
Streaming is the only way, I can see it released on Switch like Resident Evil 7.
Microsoft sure tried to make this and many other games seem like they were.......again.
Team_Litt, When did Sony try to make it look exclusive? This game was only showcased during the VGA's last year.
@team False info
How? Besides, not to turn into a mud-slinging contest, but Sony does it too. Ace Combat 7, Tekken 7... all announced with only PS4 version, until later confirmed multiplat....
Like any platform would mention their competition when showing something. As long as they don't specify it's an exclusive, it probably won't be. Real simple really, just think for yourself and don't put your assumptions on MS or Sony or who ever.
No, I thought it was pretty clear that it was a multiplat. Just as clear as when multiplats are shown at other platform holders' conferences.
Actually, they were much better this year compared to the last two.
The switch would have a significant graphical downgrade. Those visuals are beautiful. The switch will have Bayonetta 3 though
You seriously think DMC 5 can be played on the switch? Just like every game with 1080p graphics or higher, the answer will always be no.. Every IGN person kept asking on almost every game if there was gonna be a version of the switch, they all said no.. They should stop asking..
Looks like you got called out for being wrong...........again.
Please tell me how Sony tried to make it look like Shadows Die Twice was a playstation exclusive? I'm so tired of xbox fanboys making up shit. I expect an answer
Best announcement of E3 so far for me.
That's cool. I'm pretty excited about it too. I'm personally even more hyped for Sekiro Shadows Die Twice and Cyberpunk 2077, but Devil May Cry 5 is on my wanted list as well. Looks great.
Looks good so far
I hope folks don't start whining & having breakdowns because of Nero's new look...lol! Day one buy for me!!
Too late for that. "Let's welcome chaos..." - Arkham
You're probably right..lol! Let them & I'll just smh.
As a huge fan of Nero from DMC4, I like the new look, it's super different but it fits him.
I missed Nero DMC4 hairstyle.
Me too i feel like they copied and pasted the donte from dmc and called him nero in this game. I dont like who they used for his character model's face he looks kinda ugly . Neros face and hair style looked better in dmc4 imho.
This! At first I was like who is this dude but as soon as I saw the arm and it dawned on me. With you @cyx, not sure why they changed his look but I'm definitely not gonna let it get in the way of how hype I am for this.
That "cash first" line in the trailer has me worried about Capcom and microtransactions for arm upgrades
For those of you saying Vergil isn't in the game... https://twitter.com/Insert7... THAT SURE AS HELL IS HIS OUTFIT THOUGH
Yep, pretty sure he's returned from hell, regained human form from Nero Angelo, and came to reclaim his Yamato which Nero had in DMC4, I'd make sense he took Nero's Devil Bringer arm as as well
Well Maxmillian is sure it's Vergil cutting of Nero's arm so, I'll bet hes back too.
Billy idol.....I mean Dante is back yay! I see they picked the most flat chested least sexually appealing side kick nay!
Shes kinda hot though .shes got that nerdy look . idk something about her maybe she seems kick ass
Devil May Cry 5: The Phantom Pain
For those who say that Vergil is dead in Devil May Cry 1 Mundus tells Trish that Vergil (as Nelo Angelo) after Dante vs Nelo Angelo 3 has been DEFEATED not KILLED. What I think happened is that after Nelo Angelo disappeared he somehow managed to go back to his human Vergil form since Mundus was no longer alive and controlling him.
I'm a huge DMC fan and, I can't put my finger on why, but this just doesn't look all that great. It SHOULD, all the pieces are there like the original director, and using the non reboot cast, but it just looks...uninspired.
The problem is they're putting Nero front and center instead of Dante and Vergil.
Dante looks horrible :( And Nero looks like Donte
Most likely taking place after the events of dmc 2. That’s why he looks like hes older
Dante with a beard? O.O
It would be awesome if this entry takes things to new levels with gameplay/exploration w multiple characters. Have to wait and see. Capcom is hit or miss lately. Bayonetta 3 should be at nintendos conference for comparison
The fact that Kobayashi confirmed that there was no story/lore reason why Dante and Nero look alike is still dumb to me and makes me dislike the Nero story-arc even more. Sure I'll get this for the flash, combos and cinematic flare, but making the two characters look alike "just because" is so lazy.
u can use your own imagination to come up with your own story if it bothers u, no? i mean who gives a s**t
Imagine if Chocobo just showed up in The Last of Us with no explanation?.....easily GOTY stuff! Sure, guy. lol.
A chocobo showing up in TLOU is completely different from aesthetic similarities between Nero and Dante. Why are people so fixated on how these characters look?
Trailer drops: "Wow, another character who looks just like Dante? Is it his brother? A cousin? I can't wait to find out what their connection is!" Game drops: "No reason at all. They don't even realize it when they meet. Random shit bro, enjoy!" Yes, that is fuckin stupid. lol.
In a game about magic swords, demons and devil triggers... This is the final "stupid" straw? Reeeeeally?
Oh my bad. All fiction is good. Totally forgot that it's impossible to make anything nonsensical. Carry on. lmao.
Dante shouldnt be aging and looking like Cid from FF14. I'm worried about Lady now. Btw, she's the best waifu in the series. Trish is Dante's clone mom.
My favourite moment of E3 so far. Looks great....
My personal fav trailer of E3 2018
Looks like they made the first game in this one, the city and all...
