CapCom officially announcesDevil May Cry 5, following the
report last week that they had
registered a new domain for the project. The post includes some artwork,
an announcement trailer,
and word this is expected for PC and consoles in spring 2019. It doesn't sound

The time has come! Get ready for the craziest, most stylish action game
Announcing Devil May Cry 5!
Time to Kick Some Demon Ass
Years have passed since the events of Devil May Cry 4, and a lot has
happened. Young demon hunter Nero has lost his Devil Bringer demon arm… but hey!
He’s now heading his own branch of the demon-hunting business Devil May Cry. To
make up for that lost arm, and keep his style rankings up, he’s enlisted the
help of expert craftswoman Nico, a brand new character in the series, to lend a
hand and build different types of prosthetic arms that unlock new badass combat
abilities and devastating powers.
The Demonic Invasion Begins
A new demonic invasion has begun with the seeds of a demon tree being sown in
Red Grave City. Now fully equipped with his trusty Red Queen and Blue Rose, and
a new arsenal of rad robot hands thanks to his partner Nico, Nero must rise up
to this new impossible task. With such insane amount of energy and destruction
emanating from this surprise invasion, the stage is now set for the latest
chapter of the “Sons of Sparda” saga.
Utterly Insane Action
However, Nero is not alone in this fight. Our gameplay announcement trailer
above focuses on Nero and his new set of tricks, but Devil May Cry 5 will
feature 3 playable characters, with their own unique over-the-top playstyles and
New Heights in Visual Fidelity
More details on characters and specific gameplay moves are still
forthcoming—can Nero still MAX-Act rev the Red Queen?!—but rest assured the
complete package will be delivered to you in true Devil May Cry form at a
silky-smooth 60 frames-per-second and stunning visual fidelity, thanks to the
power of our proprietary RE Engine.
Devil May Cry 5 marks the return of stylish action at its finest form.
Renowned director Hideaki Itsuno has brought the band back together and they’re
working tirelessly to deliver a new genre-defining entry to you in the spring of
2019 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
We’ll be sharing more details on the game at Gamescom 2018, but in the
meantime, you can start jamming out to Nero’s blood-pumping battle theme “Devil
Trigger” by Ali Edwards on iTunes and Spotify!
