You’d better get ready to ready to land some sweet combos in Devil May Cry 5, because the game’s music will change depending on how well you’re doing.
If you want to hear the best beats, Devil May Cry 5 producer Michi Okabe explained to Japanese outlet GameSpark (via Destructoid), you’ll have to up your Style rank. For those unfamiliar with the games, that means you’ll have to up your combo chain ratings, working tricks and tricks into your moves in order to advance from Deadly to Carnage, Brutal, Atomic, and finally S, SS, and SSS Style ranks.
The higher your Style rank is, the more of the soundtrack you’ll hear. Okabe gave the example of pulling off moves in time with the music to change the melody, with choruses and more instruments being added the higher in rank you go. Your actions and the music have “synergy” – if you act cool, the music will be cool.
These changes are supposed to be in keeping with Dante’s character. He’s a showoff, and the more he shows off, the more the music reflects that.
Devil May Cry 5 is currently in development for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. It’s set to release in the first quarter of 2019.
