Devil May Cry 5's Gamescom trailer will make you cry, launch date confirmed


Tears of joy or sorrow?

Capcom's upcoming Devil May Cry 5 will be releasing on March 8, 2019. Along with the news, a new trailer from Gamescom has come out and it looks promising. I kind of dismissed DMC5 after E3 (the art style is really not doing it for me), but the actual gameplay looks reminiscent of the classic series.

For starters, Nero has the power to freeze time, which is always cool. I'm also digging the terrible music (a series staple) and highly destructible environments. The boss battles look seriously big, too, which is just bringing back memories of throwing my controller in the PS2 days. Maybe I was a bit too hasty in my dismissal of this game.

Oh yeah, Dante rips his bike in half and uses it as dual wield chainsaw swords. I'm pretty sure this is the DMC we've been wanting for awhile.
