The original crew returns in Devil May Cry 5 TGS trailer

Capcom released a new trailer for Devil May Cry 5 at Tokyo Game Show, showing off Dante gameplay in full force.

Dante will wield familiar weapons, his signature sword Rebellion, his handguns Ebony and Ivory, and his father’s sword Sparda. Dante is also seen to using some fire gauntlets and a shotgun-like weapon. His new weapon is a motorcycle that splits into a pair of chainsaws that lets him cut through the competition with little to no effort. Dante can combo between his motorcycle and chainsaws forms flawlessly, allowing him to pop donuts then quickly jump back into sawing through demons. Dante’s Devil Trigger transformation returns, which still powers up all his trademark moves once again.

As expected, Dante’s gameplay is completely over-the-top and gives players tons of different options when controlling the Dark Knight.  

The trailer also focuses on the old school Devil May Cry crew of Dante, Trish, and Lady, showing the trio partner up for another go at demon slaying. The TGS trailer also shows us the first look at V, the third playable character in the game, although his gameplay is still yet to be seen.

During their presentation, Capcom also revealed that Devil May Cry 5 would crossover with Mega Man, giving Nero a Mega Buster Devil Arm. The arm functions as you would expect, allowing Nero to fire pellet and charge shots.

The Mega Buster is one of four Devil Breaker weapons for Nero said to be exclusive to the deluxe edition of the game. The others include the Gerbera-GP01, Sweet Surrender, a vibrator designed to “relieve tension,” and the Pasta Breaker, an arm that “makes pasta extra easy to eat” but is “not particularly useful in battle.” The deluxe edition also includes 12 classic battle themes, upgraded motorcycle weapon for Dante, alternative style rank & title screen announcers, and live action cutscenes.

Devil May Cry 5 is releasing on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on March 8th.
