posted on by Alex Mateo
Capcom began streaming a trailer on Tuesday for its Devil May Cry 5 action game, the newest installment in its Devil May Cry series, revealing that the game will launch on March 8, 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Capcom describes the game:
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.
Hideaki Itsuno returns to direct the game. The game will feature three playable characters, including Nero, the protagonist of Devil May Cry 4, and Dante, the main protagonist of the first three games.
The last release in the series, Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition, launched in June 2015 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. This edition is an updated version of the original 2008 Devil May Cry 4 PC/Xbox 360 game. Capcom released the Devil May Cry HD Collection set for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in North America on March 13. The collection contains the first three games in the series.
Devil May Cry celebrated its 15th anniversary in 2016. The game series has inspired a television anime, novels, manga, and a stage play crossover with Sengoku Basara.
