Devil May Cry 5 Game Gets Manga Spinoff About V
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Artist Tomio Ogata launched a manga spinoff of CAPCOM's Devil May Cry 5 game on the LINE Manga app and website on Friday.
The manga's title is Devil May Cry 5 -Visions of V-, and it tells a spinoff story from the viewpoint of the mysterious man V. The manga's "chapter 0" prologue is available now, and the first chapter will launch on April 27. Ogata will publish a new chapter on the app every other Saturday starting on April 27.
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 returned to direct the game. The game features three playable characters, including Nero, the protagonist of Devil May Cry 4, and Dante, the main protagonist of the first three games.
