Hideaki Itsuno in a recent interview was asked about the game length and he answered by mentioning the Devil May Cry 5 game length, read here for more
That’s noticeably long for an action game
Weird that you got so many disagrees. This isn’t an RPG. Fifteen hours is pretty lengthy for an action game, especially if that doesn’t include optional missions.
Damn this is why I love capcom...can’t wait for this game and resident evil 2 remake
Capcom went all in on what fans want. Make sure to thank them in the way that counts, with your wallet.
DMC5 is looking really good. I didnt get a chance to play the demo but the trailer showing multiple characters looks pretty cool. Shakes up the gameplay a bit if you play as all of them throughout the main story. Capcom really is doing a good job at redeeming themselves. To be honest I think Q1 this year has a shot at being the best in a long time unless someone can remind me of something from previous years. Resident Evil 2, KHIII, Total War: Three Kingdoms, Jump Force, Anthem, Metro Exodus and Sekiro all come to mind as the big releases. Good start to the year!
I agree. First quarter of this year is packed with some really promising games.
so, it is around 7-8h. quite short game.
LOL. Capcom terminology. Remember back when the original Lost Planet was about to launch and they claimed it would take around 15hrs to complete on it's first playthrough, when in actuality, it was half that.
Yeah, generally when a dev says if a game is X amount of hours, it is generally about half the amount (or just a tad more). It's like they get someone to play-through it internally, then just get the time that took the longest (or get an average of all the longest play-throughs). Or they get someone that has never picked up a controller/K&M in their life, or played games in general.
No it happens because they play through casually or get play testers to play casually. Problem is the people who finish games in have the expected time rush through the game. I almost always take longer than the expected time. People told me Ni no Kuni 2 was 40 hours and can be beat faster. I beat the game at like 70 and platinum'd it at 90 exact. 98 with the adventure pack dlc that was free. I spend alot of time in games appreciating the details, looking around for Easter eggs and secrets/collectibles etc. They're not looking at the game from at strictly point a to point b situation and the casual person who's going to play through it but do a little more.
I imagine that depends on the difficulty you start out with. For that very reason, I like to play on harder difficulties so I can enjoy dying, but getting more out of my first playthrough. If you can believe it, back in the day, I got so good at Demon's Souls that I beat the entire game in one all-day session.
Great news no doubt, now they need to clarify what's the deal with those damn rumored Microtransactions.
Why so much negativity. Was the last one that bad?
The Ninja Theory DMC was that bad yes. A lifeless reimagining of a.series that didn't need one, with cookie cutter AAA tropes added in. DMC4 however was just fine. A small step down from 3, but still great.
The Ninja Theory DmC wasn't perfect, but it was far from bad. Its actually one of my favorites: DMC3, DmC, DMC4, DMC1..that's all since there isn't a DMC2. lol
DmC was terrible. They removed crucial combat mechanics and dumbed down the combat system.
ShockUltraslash Well, it's a western action (hack & skash) what do you expect, but for what it was the game was good.
A decent length..every game doesnt have to be 30, 40 hrs.
Excellent. For fans of the genre that is 1500+ hours of gameplay.
Thats exactly what Im thinking. This game is all I really need for the rest of the year.
I've gotten about 200-300 hours out of each DMC game to date, so this about what I expected for a first run through.
That makes it the longest in the series. I'll take it.
Good perfect game length for a action game
Watch one of those speed play players prove otherwise.
No useless padding or grind, cheers.
That's the perfect length for an action game. I'll probably clock in a good 50 hrs+ myself. I just love action games
Had they given it a more open, quest-based stage design like Nier, deepening the lore, then they could've extended it further. Getting it nonetheless.
It doesn't need to become action rpg or something similar to GoW.
Better than 10 hours, that's for sure
