Devil May Cry 5 Game's Trailer Reveals Xbox One Demo

"Subhuman" in-game song's vocals also replaced

The Game Awards 2018 event revealed a new trailer for CAPCOM's Devil May Cry 5 action game on Thursday. The video reveals that the game will get an Xbox One exclusive demo that will be available beginning on Friday, December 7 until January 6.

In addition, CAPCOM also revealed on Thursday that it has replaced the vocalist for "Subhuman," one of the game's songs, with Michael Barr. The song's original vocalist, Eddie Hermida, had been accused of asking a 17-year-old girl for nude pictures, and CAPCOM hinted at these allegations in its announcement. The instrumental parts of the song by the Suicide Silence band (Hermida's band) remain unaltered.

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 stage play crossover with Sengoku Basara. A new Devil May Cry: The Live Hacker stage play will run in Tokyo in March. Adi Shankar, executive producer for Netflix's Castlevania animated series, is developing an animated series based on the franchise.
