Capcom Teams up with Japanese Musician Hyde on Devil May Cry 5 Music Video
This collaboration trailer features music, scenes from the game, and a little bit of cosplay to boot.

The latest trailer for Devil May Cry 5 is a bit different than what we've seen before, as it comes in the form of a music video. Capcom has teamed up with Japanese musician Hideto Takarai, known by his stage name Hyde, on a collaboration that combines a little bit of rock music with a whole lot of high-octane, Devil May Cry-style action.
The music video, featuring a song titled "Mad Qualia," sticks to the formula of cutting back and forth between the footage of the performers and shots from the game, featuring a number of cinematic sequences showing off Dante, Nero, and V hard at work delivering some demonic beatdowns. There appears to be some new footage mixed in with scenes we have seen before, making this worth the watch at least once. If you dig the music, however, feel free to put this video on repeat for a little while!
To recap, picking up the collector’s edition of Devil May Cry 5 will get you a replica model of the motor home in which our heroes take their demon slaying on the go. Also included is an art book that contains imagery from the game as well as notes from Nico's Workbench. In addition, the collector's edition includes a pin, bumper sticker, and 11" x 17" cloth print featuring our full cast of characters. Finally, it all comes in this very special box designed to look like an item trunk, matching what you might find in the game being used by series newcomer Nico.
This collector's edition is so far available for only PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players, with no PC version of this collection to be found at this time. If you're not quite ready to shell out extra money for a collector's edition of the game, you can order up the standalone regular and deluxe editions to get your demon slaying fix that way. Be sure to select your platform of choice.
Devil May Cry 5 arrives on March 8th, 2019 and will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
