Five reasons to dream about Devil May Cry 5

Devil May Cry 5

He was one of the stars of Microsoft's last conference at E3 2018, but also one of the protagonists of the Los Angeles fair. What can we expect from Devil May Cry 5? We analyze the trailer and everything that has been told about the game to know what Capcom has in hand.

The irony meant that the frustrated work of the first playable concept of Resident Evil 4 gave rise to one of the cornerstones of Capcom in the past decade: Devil May Cry. They have been four numbered deliveries, an apocryphal version developed by the talented artists of Ninja Theory and appearances in series such as Viewtiful Joe or Marvel VS. Capcom since then. It was seen that the return of Dante was coming, but no one could notice the speed of his return: the premiere of Devil May Cry 5 will come next year, and is already one of the most anticipated video games of 2019.

In Gaming News 24 we wanted to review the different keys after the return of Nero, Dante and Hideaki Itsuno, who will return to command the Devil May Cry series after just over ten years away from the franchise. How does the arrival of Capcom and its Japanese muscle translate to the series of the devils?
Basically, to recover one of the brands most loved by fans of hack and slash games around the world, wanting to compete with the Japanese also Platinum and the great work they have done over the past years. Will be able? As the new battle theme of Devil May Cry 5 says, bang, bang, bang, hold my Devil Trigger.

1. Devil May Cry with pedigree. Welcome, Itsuno!

No, rest assured, no one is going to question here that Ninja Theory's DmC ended up being a great video game worthy of the name of Capcom's vaunted brand. However ... one thing does not take away the other: we are many followers of the adventures of Dante, Vergil, and Nero that we wanted to play something new developed by the Japanese Capcom. I must admit that I liked the hideous tone of Hideaki Itsuno, assuring him that he had not seen a Devil May Cry for ten years, completely ignoring the work of the British, but I think there was no wickedness in his words: there was a sincere message to his most staunch supporters.

Devil May Cry returns to the hands of the people who made it great, and despite the cold reception of Devil May Cry 4 in its day by users around the world, I think the time has ended putting in its place the adventure of Dante and Nero. That Itsuno, director of the fourth part, is in charge of the new production is something more than a pleasant news: it is a declaration of intentions on the part of Capcom, and with what little has been seen in the trailer of DMC 5, we can already guess some interesting ideas for the new production.

2. The amputation of the Devil Bringer. Hello Devil Breaker!

It may seem a circumstance that does not go beyond the plot or script of the game, but the reality is that the amputation of the demonic arm of Nero can give some other playable joy for Nero. Nico, the new co-star of the adventure, will create the Devil Breaker the hero, a new mechanical arm that promises to give more variety to the development of the game than we saw with the Devil Bringer originally. In the same trailer already show more uses than those seen in the fourth installment, and it is more than likely that Capcom is still reserving the odd card in the manga with the new weapon.

If we show some of the clips that have been shown during the E3, we can verify that the Devil Breaker is an important part of many of the protagonist's combinations. We see some movement reminiscent of the Devil Bringer, but there are four very striking and unprecedented in the arsenal of Nero: one in which he uses his arm as a hook, another in which he uses it as a powerful grip that stamps the rivals against the floor, a third in which he uses it as a skate and a quarter, and probably the most peculiar of all, with which he slows down time.

3. Various characters? Who is the third?

Dante and Nero's Devil Bringer seemed to be the only connections that existed at the moment in the DMC universe with Sparda ... but in the promotional images of the game and at the end of the trailer there was a snapshot with a supposed third character that was not He has still discovered his identity. We assume it will be unveiled at the Gamescom 2018, so it will be patient to know who we are talking to. Can it be Vergil? Because of the appearance and the plot of the game itself, it seems unlikely.

However, is it the first time we will take so many characters in a Devil May Cry? Of premiere yes, in revision no: the most recent case, of course, is that of the revisions of Devil May Cry 4 for the current generation of consoles, in which we could control Dante, Nero, Trish, Lady, and Vergil. Maybe five characters in the new Devil May Cry 5 sound excessive, but the possibility of controlling three characters already seems a pretty attractive option. What has been said: will remain patient; there is not a clue about what Itsuno and his team are preparing.

4. The enemies: a new or old threat?

There is no Devil May Cry without a villain up to the challenge of Dante and Nero, it's a fact. Unfortunately, we know little about the enemies, but we can draw two or three interesting clues about them. We know that one of the new villains had fancied Nero's Devil Bringer, and he is going to achieve it! He rips it off and takes it. Why? There are two possible theories: the first is to separate Nero from the only thing that unites Sparda; the other is to have Yamato, the Vergil katana, imbued in the limb of the protagonist of Devil May Cry 4. With what interest or intention?
Devil May Cry 5
We return to the question: Is Vergil the mysterious hooded? Unlikely ... but it is known that Vergil's voice, Daniel Southworth, works in the game, so anything can happen. The other clue is in the being that we see at the beginning of the trailer. Surrounded by a material similar to that of the Devil Bringer, one of the few details we can see is that it has three eyes. What another enemy of the franchise has had them? Mundus. Would it be unreasonable to see the return of the first enemy of the series? No. Maybe we are facing a resurrection of the Dark Emperor, and that we finish, once and for all, the work that Sparda began.

5. Capcom unleashed: a Devil May Cry top

Capcom is always in the eye of all criticism, but no one can deny that he has signed one of the best E3 of his life. He signed a high-level video game for the Sony conference and another for Microsoft, which has allowed him to be one of the leading players in the American event. Resident Evil 2 looks great, and against all odds, it comes out next January; Devil May Cry 5, which comes out in the first half of next year, is 75% of its development, another welcome news.
Devil May Cry 5
Maybe talking about photorealism, as suggested in some interview to the game director, sounds exaggerated seeing the parts of gameplay that have been, but we can not ignore the images that have shared Nico in social networks. Capcom's RE Engine, used with great success in Resident Evil 7, shows a technical invoice for the fifth part of Devil May Cry never seen in the series, and I can not think of a better news for the return of the series and its debut in the current generation of consoles.
