Capcom has finally announced when fans can join Nero, Dante, and friends in a new bout of demon hunting. Devil May Cry 5 will arrive on March 8th, 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
The release date was unveiled through a new gameplay trailer shown during this year’s Gamescom. In the footage, which you can check out below, players can get a closer look at Nero battling several different lesser demons and a few epic bosses throughout Red Grave City. Perhaps the most compelling moment comes at the end, when Dante rolls into battle, rips his motorcycle in half, and uses the wheels as saw blades to cut through enemies.
Nero and Dante’s battle styles look just as fluid as one would expect from a Devil May Cry title, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be a few new features to spice things up. For example, the game will include a musical Style rank feature. As previously revealed by producer Michi Okabe, Devil May Cry 5‘s in-game soundtrack will change depending on how well the player can string together combos and raise their Style rank. When it comes to the overall battle system, players will also see some influences from DmC, but what form those will take is unclear.
Back in June, Capcom revealed to Famitsu that the game was about 75 percent completed, which makes the official early March release date make sense. While it’s still a few months away from launch, fans will likely get more new information leading up to the game’s release.
Devil May Cry 5 will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on March 8th, 2019.
