Devil May Cry is being adapted into a Japanese stage play


Dante Daddy steps out!

Devil May Cry and over-the-top pizzaz go together like Broadway shows and melodrama, so it was only a matter of time before daddy Dante made his stage debut. Capcom Japan has announced that a brand new stage play titled Devil May Cry: The Live Hacker will be opening for a limited run in Japan next March. Capcom is promising stylish action and live performances, which certainly sounds like DMC.

The performance will be directed by Jun Yukiro. Yukiro previously directed Resident Evil's stage play in 2015. Characters present will be Dante (obviously), Gideon, Elise, Henry, Owen, Luke, and Muul. Noah, Lady, and Trish are slated to appear but have not yet been cast.

The play will be running from March 1, 2019, until March 10, 2019, with 13 shows. It will be held at the Zepp DiverCity plaza in Tokyo with tickets going for 7,800 yen for general admission and 9,800 yen for "premium." Registration from the limited lottery of tickets will begin on November 10 at 10:00 am JST and run until November 25. Winners will be announced on November 29.

If you can read Japanese and will be in Tokyo next year, why not head over to the official website to learn more? It should be a real treat to see Devil May Cry come to life on stage.
