Devil May Cry


 

The director of the original Devil May Cry recently shared his view that series’ next installment could benefit from a reboot of its mechanics, not unlike the one undertaken by the upcoming God of War.

In an apparent instance of thinking out loud on Twitter, Devil May Cry director Hideki Kamiya proposed the idea of revising the core gameplay of Devil May Cry for the next game, making its combat more realistic and grounded. Kamiya mentions the changes found in this year’s upcoming God of War as a reference, with its adoption of an over-the-shoulder perspective and its removal of a jump function as notable deviations from the series’ established format.

One fan asked if this open contemplation was actually an effort to covertly ridicule God of War for making such a drastic mechanical shift. Kamiya denied this, stating that the new God of War “looks great.”

When asked if DMC should take it one step further with an open-world design, or stick with the contemporary linear progression, Kamiya expressed that he simply wants something new and exciting, whatever that may be.

Fans should be aware that Kamiya has not worked on a Devil May Cry project since 2001, so assuming he is not on the new one, he is talking more as a fan than a developer. Since Kamiya, the series has been directed by Hideaki Itsuno. Itsuno is not yet confirmed to be working on the rumored Devil May Cry 5, but the developer did welcome us to expect his next game announcement soon, so we can imagine what that will likely be.
