Devil May Cry 5 at SteamDB

Devil May Cry 5 is a hack-and-slash video game. Developed and published by Capcom, this game is the fifth installment in the Devil May Cry series.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Devil May Cry 5 is a hack-and-slash game largely similar in gameplay to its predecessors.

In addition to Dante and Nero, Devil May Cry includes a third playable character known as "V". V's gameplay style is largely unique: he controls three demons to weaken enemies to a critical state, allowing him to finish them off (V cannot attack enemies otherwise, and his demons cannot kill enemies on their own).

Plot[edit | edit source]

Note: The game involves a slight change in the world's canon. Devil May Cry 2 was originally placed at the end of the Devil May Cry timeline. In the game's opening, Devil May Cry 2 is stated as occurring before Devil May Cry 4.

The game begins five years after the events of Devil May Cry 4. Nero has opened up his own branch of Devil May Cry alongside Nicoletta "Nico" Goldstein, a sassy engineer. On April 30, Nero is attacked by a mysterious hooded figure, who rips off his Devil Bringer arm and takes the Yamato with it before disappearing.

Alternate Ending[edit | edit source]

This ending can be gained by Nero defeating Urizen in either of the two boss fights.

Reception[edit | edit source]

The game has received positive reception from critics.
