Little by little more details about the new Devil May Cry 5.

Devil May Cry is an action-adventure series mixed with the hack and slash genre that uses as its inspiration the poetic narrative of The Divine Comedy, written by Dante Alighieri and completed in 1321.

From the beginning of the story we got into the skin of Dantewho has sworn revenge on the demons that killed his mother.

Now, with the latest installment to be released in the first quarter of 2019we will be able to control Dante, Nero (who appeared in Devil May Cry 4) and a third character that nothing is known about yet.

Hideaki Itsuno on Devil May Cry 5

In a recent interview given by Itsuno for Denkei Online, the director talked about Nicothe female character that we saw in the trailer for this past E3, stating the following:

Nico…Well, what can I say? Nico is a character who came to create the anti-demon weapon. With her we aspired to be a character that everyone liked, despite the fact that there are many different opinions about her. I think when you play the game you will end up loving it.

Furthermore, Itsuno hinted that Nico will have his own story.

Also, we know there will be a third playable character; but neither before at E3 nor now with this latest interview do we know anything about this mysterious swordsman who will join the two that are already confirmed. In fact, Itsuno said that he “definitely is a important character“, and that there is a reason for it to be shown without carrying any weapon.

Finally, it should be noted that the response to the launch of this new game in the franchise is being positive both for the Japanese market and for international markets.

Devil May Cry 5 will be playable at the next Gamescom in August. The title, which is very close to the end of its development, will not arrive until 2019.
