New Devil May Cry announced for smartphones in China

Devil May Cry: Pinnacle of Combat

Well, I didn’t want to qualify a new mainline Devil May Cry release like that, but this is happening.

According to MMO Culture, Chinese developer Yunchang Game has acquired the rights from Capcom directly to create a Devil May Cry mobile game that will focus on the combat system. It’s appropriately called Devil May Cry: Pinnacle of Combat, will be powered by Unity 3D, and will feature online play as well as real-time PVP and “team battles.” No specific platforms have been confirmed yet but these days most things get an Android and iOS release.

I generally don’t write anything off (including mobile games), but I’m foreseeing lots of “daily login bonus” pop-ups and multiple currencies based on the series’ multi-colored jewels. Given the hiatus that the Real Dante has been through, this rekindling only gives more fuel for the “Devil May Cry 5” rumor fire.
