"Devil May Cry 5" launches March 8, 2019, developer and publisher Capcom announced in Gamescom on Tuesday.
Capcom debuted a new trailer during a special episode of Inside Xbox Tuesday. It shows more of Nero's features and even includes a few seconds of grizzled Dante and his motorcycle. After the trailer, Capcom used a couple of minutes to talk about Nero's new mechanic, Devil Breakers. Developed by Nero's partner, Nico, there are eight standard Devil Breakers in the game, and they allow Nero to make moves "Devil May Cry" fans have not seen before.
The first Overture Devil Breaker looks like a regular unmanned arm, but there's a hidden electrical generator inside strong enough to bump demons that come too close. Gerbera Devil Breaker, meanwhile, generates intense heat and can burn a powerful shockwave, reflect enemy projectiles or propel Nero through the air.
Capcom revealed that it is working on a new entry to the honorable action franchise under the E3 in June. "Devil May Cry 5" will be a much different game than the last offer, Ninja Theory's 201
The "Devil May Cry" series has sold 16 million units over its lifetime, but it has been 10 years since the fans were striking demon faces in "Devil May Cry 4." Ninja Theorys reboot was well received by critics, and allegedly sold well in Japan, but failed to get hold of Western gaming. Capcom was forced to reduce its sales target by 800,000. Afterwards, many wondered that the game's bad reception had sentenced the dear franchise.
Capcom wants to talk more about "DMC 5" (and Dante!) At the Tokyo Game Show 19-23 September.
