Guide by Hirun Cryer, Jake Green, .

Devil May Cry 5 is definitely shaping up to be one of the more standout games of a packed 2019, based on what we've played ahead of release. In this Devil May Cry 5 everything we know guide, we'll be compiling all the information we have so far on Capcom's sequel, including the final Devil May Cry 5 release date set for March next year, all the Devil May Cry 5 gameplay we've both seen and played for ourselves, as well as the various confirmed Devil May Cry 5 characters, including Nero, Dante, and a Van.

Devil May Cry 5 Release Date

The Devil May Cry 5 release date has been confirmed as March 8, 2019. The release date was announced during the Xbox Gamescom 2018 Inside Xbox live stream. This date means Devil May Cry 5 joins a rather packed Q1 2019, alongside titles such as Anthem, Metro Exodus, and more.

Though, from what we've seen so far from Devil May Cry 5, it could end up being the very best of the bunch in early 2019. Read on for our full impressions of the game from Gamescom 2018.

Devil May Cry 5 Impressions

For the very first time, Devil May Cry 5 was playable for everyone attending Gamescom 2018 in Germany, and we spent a good amount of time with Nero. For all the impressions from our time with DmC 5, head ove to our Devil May Cry 5 hands-on preview.

Devil May Cry 5 Photo Mode

During a Twitch stream of the Devil May Cry 5 PAX West panel, it was revealed that there would be a photo mode coming to Capcom's sequel. You can see the full PAX West panel through YouTube just below, and the team discuss the photo mode at roughly the 21 minute mark.

Devil May Cry 5 Development Team

A previous leak claimed that Hideaki Itsuno's team, who previously worked on the Devil May Cry series as well as Dragon's Dogma, are behind the development of Devil May Cry 5, and that Yuji Shimomura, who previously worked on cutscenes for Devil May Cry and Bayonetta, is returning for the upcoming game. Capcom confirmed this during E3 2018, at the Xbox Press Conference.

Speaking of the development side of Devil May Cry 5, according to a recent interview with Famitsu (translated by wccftech), development of the game is about 75% complete. On top of this, Capcom revealed that the villain of the upcoming sequel would be a stronger foe than either Nero or Dante has ever faced.

Devil May Cry 5 Gameplay Details

Dante, Nero, and Vergil are all confirmed to be returning for Devil May Cry 5, and the ResetEra leak also claims that all three characters will be playable in some form. Whether this means switching back and forth between characters, or having sections of the game dedicated to specific characters, we're still unsure of.

Devil May Cry 5 has now been confirmed to pick up right after the story of Devil May Cry 4, and the "Prince of Darkness" is the primary antagonist of the game. Nero has been confirmed as a playable character.

What Platforms is Devil May Cry 5 Coming to?

In addition to all this, Devil May Cry 5 is launching for PlayStation 4, and apparently coming to PC at a later date. The game is targeting 60 frames per second for consoles, it will also be making its way to Xbox One, after debuting on the Microsoft E3 2018 Press Conference.

As of right now, these are all the confirmed details that we have on Devil May Cry 5. As soon as Capcom announce any additional details for their upcoming game, we'll make sure to update this page immediately.

    I was thinking this is the first AAA hack n slash this gen but I suppose Nier Automata counts as well, though that’s more AA I suppose
