Dante and Nero are back in a brand-new installment of Capcom's Devil May Cry franchise. Rumors and speculation have been swirling since as far back as late 2017 about what's next for the series, with it widely believed that the next game would skip over the 2013 reboot and instead be a direct sequel to Devil May Cry 4. Yesterday, at Microsoft's E3 presentation, these rumors proved to be the true as Capcom finally unveiled Devil May Cry 5.

This new game promises to be a return to form for the series, with director Hideaki Itsuno making his return after not being quite as involved in the 2013 reboot. This trailer brings us back to a world desperately in need of demon cleansing, introducing Nero as a protagonist once again alongside new sidekick Nico, who seems to be the brains behind his flashy new robotic arm.

The teaser trailer ends with a glimpse at original series protagonist Dante riding into action on a motorcycle, a reminder that this is a true sequel to Devil May Cry 4 and our favorite characters are still in play. The title is currently set for a Spring 2019 release for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. After watching this trailer, we have decided that we definitely need this franchise back in our lives.
