Devil May Cry 5 Dated for March 2019 with #Gamescom2018 Gameplay Trailer
Capcom has announced that Devil May Cry 5 will release for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 8th, 2019. It was revealed at Gamescom via a new gameplay trailer, which reveals that Dante will be one of the three playable characters, though his brother Virgil will play more of a leading role it seems.
The story of DMC5 will mainly follow Vergil as a young demon Hunter, however, after losing the use of his right arm, Nico, a self-professed weapons artist, designs and crafts the unique Devil Breaker, which harnesses powerful, demon-slaying powers! This will come in handy against mighty foes such as the “blood sucking flying Empusa and giant colossus enemy Goliath.”
As the story of DMC5 evolves, so too will the Devil Breaker which will grow in strength along with Nero, as detailed via the information provided by the official press release below:
The first arm Nico makes for Nero – the Overture Devil Breaker, looks plain in style allowing Nero to wear it inconspicuously throughout the city, but the hidden electric generator inside is enough to shock any demons that come too close. Adding a bit more versatility, the Gerbera Devil Breaker generates an intense heat that can be shot out as a highly powerful shockwave which can be used as a direct attack, to reflect enemy projectiles or even to propel Nero through the air and augment his capability to evade.
Combined with melee attacks using his ‘Red Queen’ sword and the long range firepower of his ‘Blue Rose’ handgun, the power of Nero’s Devil Breaker arms add dramatic adrenaline fuelled action to the eternal battle between the forces of good and evil that plays out in the streets of Red Grave City. With the arrival of Dante on his flashy motorbike, the pair of demon hunters are set to try and save the city and find out what’s behind this latest demon invasion.
