So rumours have been rife that Capcom will be coming back with a new Devil May Cry. According to rumours, it’ll be called Devil May Cry 5 which means it’ll be like that weird Devil May Cry with the short haired, foul mouthed, BRUNETTE Dante never existed and boy won’t that be a good memory to not have.
Don’t get me wrong, Ninja Theory’s interpretation of the Son of Sparda was certainly interesting, but that idea of completely changing him into this punk rocker of sorts did not go down with fans of the original Dante (myself included)
What made it worse were the jabs thrown classic Dante’s way. You can’t mock one of the OGs of hack and slash games and expect to come out unscathed.
So from the rumours it is being speculated that the story of Devil May Cry 5 will kick off where 4 left off and will also feature Nero (who feels like Terry McGinnis to Dante’s Bruce Wayne) in the game.
Then there’s talk that Vergil and Nero will meet and it might be confirmed that they share a relationship as father and son.
The level design according to the leak will be “more open” but not quite “open world”. “Level design and exploration is more similar to Bayonetta with action set pieces thrown in there but without the QTEs,”. There’s also apparently a “new, more dynamic” camera system that the development team is quite proud of.
No word as to when it’s coming out, but i can’t lie, i’m pretty excited as to what it could bring. Our only prayer is that it isn’t released as a PS4 exclusive.
Cos we won’t like that.
