In another board, there are already a gathering of haters who don't like this game purely due to the "gritty" art style and the DmC resemblance.
Some are even claiming that Nero "moves like DmC Dante", completely blind towards the fact that old motion captures for Red Queen Combo A, a Buster animation and High Roller are reused and can be seen in the reveal trailer.
Hmm. We're going to need a media and news release thread for stuff like this to go in. For this batch of info this should be fine.
The time has come! Get ready for the craziest, most stylish action game experience yet:
Announcing Devil May Cry 5!
Time to Kick Some Demon Ass
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.
The Demonic Invasion Begins
A new demonic invasion has begun with the seeds of a demon tree being sown in Red Grave City. Now fully equipped with his trusty Red Queen and Blue Rose, and a new arsenal of rad robot hands thanks to his partner Nico, Nero must rise up to this new impossible task. With such insane amount of energy and destruction emanating from this surprise invasion, the stage is now set for the latest chapter of the “Sons of Sparda” saga.
Utterly Insane Action
However, Nero is not alone in this fight. Our gameplay announcement trailer above focuses on Nero and his new set of tricks, but Devil May Cry 5 will feature 3 playable characters, with their own unique over-the-top playstyles and flair.
New Heights in Visual Fidelity
More details on characters and specific gameplay moves are still forthcoming—can Nero still MAX-Act rev the Red Queen?!—but rest assured the complete package will be delivered to you in true Devil May Cry form at a silky-smooth 60 frames-per-second and stunning visual fidelity, thanks to the power of our proprietary RE Engine.
