Devil May Cry 5 To Let You Choose Who To Play As At Times
Devil May Cry 5 is set to be the true continuation of the Devil May Cry series, and an entry that will be bigger and better than anything that series has offered before. At the very least, it will bring many different scenarios and obstacles for you to face. To that end, you won’t just be playing as Dante, or Nero, or swapping between the two. Instead, Capcom has noted that in the game you will have a choice between three different characters for certain missions.
This comes from Capcom’s Matt Walker, who noted that for certain missions you’ll be able to choose between Dante, Nero, and the new character V to play as.
“We’ve mentioned that there will be a bunch of missions in the game,” writes Walker. “For some missions you’ll have 1 character you can play as, for some you can select between two, and for some you can select between all three.”
This variety will no doubt make Devil May Cry 5 much more fun and fresh to gamers, as they’ll be able to go back and play levels as someone else to feel the difference. It might also lead to different events in the storyline, but it’s not clear as of now.
Here’s a new synopsis for the game via Capcom:
“The threat of demonic power has returned to menace the world once again in Devil May Cry 5. The invasion begins when the seeds of a “demon tree” take root in Red Grave City. As this hellish incursion starts to take over the city, a young demon hunter Nero, arrives with his partner Nico in their “Devil May Cry” motorhome. Finding himself without the use of his right arm, Nero enlists Nico, a self-professed weapons artist, to design a variety of unique mechanical Devil Breaker arms to give him extra powers to take on evil demons such as the blood sucking flying Empusa and giant colossus enemy Goliath.”
The game releases March 8th, 2019.
