Capcom has released quite a lot of media in preparation for the Devil May Cry 5 presentation at Tokyo Game Show 2018. Capcom is touting that, next to Nero and Dante, there’s also going to be a brand new playable character called V. Okay, we have been aware of the existence of a mysterious third playable character since E3, but the identity and bio were kept under wraps, and this is the first time we’ve seen his face.
First off, let’s have a peek at the Tokyo Game Show trailer, featuring fresh gameplay footage with quite a lot of new moves and combos on display. Check it out:
At this point, we don’t know a lot about the new character, V, aside from the fact that he is quite dashing and seems to prefer speaking in poetic verse only. So yeah, while this is the first time we’ve seen V’s face, and also the first time we saw the DMC 5 versions of Trish and Lady. Dante’s Sparda and Balrog were also revealed during the Tokyo Game Show. The Balrog was described as a Devil Arm. Players get to wield it for close-range fighting and Dante, of course, pulls off a series of cool powerful kicks to mow down all sorts of hideous-looking baddies.
Capcom also revealed that players who buy the Deluxe Edition (or if they preorder) will be given access to some delicious in-game goodies.
Mind you, that’s not all you get in the game. Dante has one of the most badass weapons we’ve ever seen in a DMC game (or in any game for that matter): the motorbike weapon called Cavaliere. Splitting a bike in two, and then using it as two blades? C’mon, that’s just cool beyond words. When it comes to weapons, Dante also resorts to his long-time favorites, the Rebellion, in addition to Ebony and Ivory. This time around though, he also has a shotgun named Coyote-A. You can have a look at all of these new weapons, and fresh editions of familiar characters (as well as new ones) in the brand new screenshot gallery:
One of the greatest traditions of the DMC series is being able to pull off those awesome hits and combos. DMC 5 is no exception in that regard, so there’s an amazing variety of moves players against armies of foes. We’ve recently seen some of those in action as well.
Don’t forget, folks, Devil May Cry 5 is going to hit stores on March 8, 2019 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
