The smokin’ sexy stylish demon bashers are back! After a long absence and a couple odd detours, Capcom’s Devil May Cry series has returned with its fifth installment: Devil May Cry 5.

As the game begins, Dante and Nero are holding back the latest demonic invasion — but they finally met their match at the hands of demon king Urizen. Now monsters have overrun the city, Dante is missing, and Nero’s arm is ALSO missing. The good news is, thanks to the help of gadget whiz Nico, Nero now has the ability to battle with artificial arms that double as weapons — and he can shift between them on the fly.

When Nero tracks down Dante, he’ll be unlocked as playable….but neither of them are alone. New to the series is the mysterious V, a slow-moving character that changes the entire gameplay dynamic. While Dante and Nero are hyperactive superheroes, V has no stylish moves to speak of, and uses animal familiars to attack and defend himself. Using V is optional, but he makes for an interesting second playthrough.

But the action isn’t over. In April Capcom will issue a free update to Devil May Cry 5 that adds the return of the Bloody Palace Mode…an extra-challenging stage that pits you up against hordes of progressively stronger enemies.

Devil May Cry 5 is out now for Playstation 4, XBox One and PC. Two versions of the game are available: the Standard Edition, and the Deluxe Edition with four alternate devil breaker weapons for Nero, motorcycle weapon variant for Dante, alternate style rank and title screen announcers, behind the scenes live action cutscenes, and classic battle theme music options.
