New Devil May Cry 5 Trailer Reveals V's Mysterious Powers

New Devil May Cry 5 Trailer Reveals V's Mysterious Powers

He also looks like Adam Driver.

Devil May Cry 5 has a new trailer starring V, the mysterious third protagonist of Capcom's next demon hunting action game.

V utilizes a demon summoning skill that involves being able to call on three different demons to fight in battle. V can let the demons handle the heavy lifting before delivering the finishing blow. V can use three familiars a bird-like demon named Griffon, a panther named Shadow, and a giant golem-like demon named, appropriately, Nightmare.

Check out all three of them in the trailer below.

V is apparently just two days old, but it looks like he's already causing all sorts of trouble. He also has a bone to pick with Dante based on the trailer's ending, but we'll have to wait until the game comes out to see what that's all about.
