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.

Oooooh wait.

So that rocket punch thing was a separate robot arm on his belt all along.
I didn't see it clearly but I thought his own prosthetic Devil Bringer was doing the rocket punching.

And from the look of the giant spark shock pic, he seems to be carrying two spare robot arms on his belt.

I'll just get right to the ass kicking.

What is it with female characters faces nowadays? She's just as hideous as the ladies from Injustice 2.

I hope Trish or Lady don't end up looking like men.

It's called the Uncanny Valley. A Japanese roboticist stipulated that the closer to realism you get without actually achieving it the more off or unsettling the human form looks.

Well, I say that but... Then again, it might just be ugly character design. I don't like Nico's look nor attitude, she annoys me in layers.

Nero looks a lot like DmC Dante now. Amusing. I'm interested in seeing the same fans who complained about DmC praise how good the new Nero looks.
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.

My problem wasn't how reboot Dante looked, it was that they called him Dante. But fans have wanted Nero to look different from Dante and that's what we finally got

I don't want to make a thread for every little thing I find so I'll just make this temporary thread for that kinda thing.

Now, how about some gameplay and info.
2 hours 10 minutes 10 seconds in.
