Capcom Releases Spoiler-Filled Final Trailer for Devil May Cry 5
Here is your most revealing look yet at the story of the upcoming new sequel for the hack and slash franchise.
By Chris Morse
The final trailer for Devil May Cry 5 is here and this one contains a few spoilers to hold you over for the final release. As usual, turn back now if you want to go into the game totally fresh, but there are definitely a few juicy tidbits for us in this latest trailer, which teases a handful of the more epic moments in store for us. The cutscenes are really the highlight here, but you can be the judge by watching it for yourself above.
Although the trailer contains a bit of fresh gameplay footage, the focus quickly shifts towards the story and a number of epic cinematic moments. Most significant is the surprise appearance of Vergil at the very end of the video, which you might have missed if you didn’t keep watching past the Devil May Cry 5 logo. This is the first time we’ve seen any mention of the character in this new sequel and we have to admit we’re totally sold on this game now.
Naturally, we don’t know the extent of the character’s involvement or if he might be playable at some point as he was in earlier titles, but this sequel just got a whole lot more interesting overall with this revelation. As Capcom says in the official video description, this is one spoiler that is particularly motivating. Wouldn’t you agree?
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.
