Devil May Cry 5 is an upcoming action-adventure hack and slash video game developed and published by Capcom. It is a continuation of the mainline series which began with Devil May Cry in 2001, to its most recent entry Devil May Cry 4, which was released in 2008.
The gameplay will feature the return of Dante and Nero as playable characters, along with a currently unknown third character. The gameplay is similar to the other titles in the Devil May Cry series, focusing on fast-paced "stylish action". The player fights off hoards of demons with a variety of attacks and weapons and receives a style-rating in combat based on a number of factors, such as move variety, the length of a combo and dodging attacks. Nero is equipped with his Red Queen sword, his Blue Rose double-barreled revolver, and a new robotic arm with a variety of functions such as grabbing enemies from a distance or stopping time to freeze an enemy in place. The music in the game will change based on the player's performance in combat.
The story takes place several years after the fourth title. Nero has set up his own demon hunting agency based out of a van adorned with a neon "Devil May Cry" sign given to him by Dante. Nero also has a new robotic hand called "Devil Breaker", which was created by the new agency's engineer Nico as a replacement for Nero's Devil Bringer arm after it had been severed off by a mysterious figure.
