Greetings, and welcome to the All-Purpose Devil May Cry Topic!
[Topic is currently a work in progress, so please excuse the mess]


Figured that I'd make a topic for this considering that 5 just got announced, so here y'all go.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

- What is Devil May Cry? -

Devil May Cry is an action-adventure, hack and slash/third-person shooter video game series developed by Capcom and created by Hideki Kamiya.
(Only the original was worked on by the latter, however; Hideaki Itsuno currently serves as the main director behind the series, having done so since towards the end of Devil May Cry 2's development)

Originally intended to be a sequel in Capcom's Resident Evil series, in development it became such a radical departure from the series' style that it was developed into a new property entirely.
The series centers on the main character Dante's goal of avenging his mother's murder by exterminating demons.

The gameplay consists of heavy combat scenes in which the player must attempt to extend long chains of attacks while avoiding damage in order to exhibit stylized combat.
(This element, along with time and the number of items collected and used, are taken under consideration when grading the player's performance at the end of a mission)

My thoughts so far:
Watching the trailer for the new game a few more times has made me quite a bit more excited and optimistic towards it, though my initial complaints still remain. (I'm sure, or at least hopeful, that Itsuno knows what he's doing, however)
Personally not too fond of how they seem to have "westernized" it a lot, a problem that I had with DmC.
(As did many others - Though, that said, I did enjoy the gameplay of DmC, and the Definitive Edition apparently improved upon it quite a bit, so I'm not worried about anything in relation to the gameplay department at all)

Nero's haircut is probably my biggest problem. He seems too much like DmC Dante and the Scalebound protagonist, which makes him look too generic and like a douchebag, imo.
(His facial features are either the exact same or similar to how they were in 4, however, so the hair is the only real problem)
I'm fine with them changing both his and Dante's designs in the sense that always happened for Dante between games (Usually on the same console, no less), but his haircut makes him look generic as ****, and once again too "westernized" to me.
I don't really like how Dante looks as well, but then again I don't like his design in 4 much either, so...

Other than that, the gameplay looks fantastic. (Studied it a bit further, it seems to be similar to 4's - Down to some of Nero's old moves and combos)

The one female character is trash, though, and I'm not sure how to feel about this being less isolated than previous games (In terms of location and atmosphere) and overly gory.
(Something that I don't mind in something like, say, God of War, but in Devil May Cry, while gory, was never really that bad compared to some other games, so here it feels kind of forced for "cool" factor - And, once again, "westernization")

But, yeah, besides all that, I'm (Albeit cautiously) excited for it. I do hope that the music will be less like DmC's, and more like 3 and 4's, though.

Agreed. I was really worried that the more "realistic" animations would slow it way down. But, as you said, it barely does. I'm so looking forward to this. (But why does it have to come out the same month as my mother's birthday? ;; )

Finally, the story goes somewhere completely new. Not that it was necessary, but a prequel, an interquel and a reboot kinda make you want progression, so to say.

Dante's battle music is... not really appealing. More DmC that DMC3/4, which I really wasn't hoping for. Otherwise, it looks great. Devil Trigger is looking slick. My only question is... since it's a grand tradition that Dante must get impaled by a sword (usually his own), how are they going to do it and can the please use the motorcycle chainsaw? XD

I’m not following DMC5 closely so far cuz I kinda wanna avoid any possible huge spoilers and stuff but new guy V???? is hot and I don’t like looking at him : (

I’m really excited for the game though. I have a friend who’s much more familiar with the games than me (I own em all but haven’t beaten them all yet, he has, multiple times I believe) and I’m gonna be excited to hear his opinions on everything with it, but he’s avoiding spoilers and stuff right now too, haha

The trophy list for Devil May Cry 5 has been leaked.

The list doesn't really spoil anything story-related outside of how many missions there are thankfully, but it does seems like it'll be challenging as hell to platinum/100% for sure.
(About as hard - if not harder - as Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition, by the looks of it)

Okay, so apparently even though they showed DMC2 before DMC4 in the history of Devil May Cry video that came out today, DMC2 still takes place afterwards chronologically. -whew-

^ Really? It's like Capcom doesn't have much regard on whether or not DMC2 actually happened at all. Still, I'd like to see Lucia return in some way.

Finally got playing the demo and it was pretty tough at times. Never manage to get the combo meter to an S-rank, which revs up the music. Maybe I'll get better next month.

Seems like DMC2 really does take place before DMC4 now. *sigh* Don't understand why they wouldn't stop talking about how the former takes place after the latter then, especially considering that the name of the artbook is "31425". :/

I guess that I shouldn't be surprised by their lack of consistency, though, since they race-swapped another character without so much as an explanation. lmao
(Even though the part of the canon that he comes from is strangely still canon and unaltered otherwise)

- - -

Also, I'm thinking that we should give Devil May Cry 5 the subtitle "Misdirection" or "Deceit", because I'm starting to notice that both V and Urizen seem to be characters meant to misdirect both the people in the game and the player.

Honestly, I'm beginning to believe that both of them are Vergil in some form, but they're both pawns of Mundus being used to resurrect him and purposefully mislead us into making what we think are "concrete" theories due to what we already know.
Hell, both Urizen's name and the name of the demon tree come from entities/things in the real world that basically represent some form of deception in their respective origins.

Seriously, look up both if you don't believe me. The thing that the tree is named after is even compared to a fruit, which the one in DMC5 conveniently has.

Apparently Berial from DMC4 isn't Mundus' child? I don't really buy that, as I don't understand why the English translation would change it that much, nor why people are only now claiming that he isn't.

Regardless, I'm still going to headcanon him as such. :/

HOLY **** HOLY **** HOLY **** SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS

Calling it now; all of this is from merely the first half of the game. (Itsuno himself said that things don't get really crazy up until around Mission 11 or so, IIRC)
I really don't think (Or at least hope) that they'd reveal the ending like this before the game has even come out, and I've been thinking for a while that Urizen being the main antagonist and final boss was going to be some form of misdirection.

Defeating Urizen will likely free Vergil from his corruption, and thus Vergil will replace V as the third playable character due to the latter likely dying. (Or at least being incapacitated)
However, this leaves one post unmanned, that of the true antagonist. If neither V nor Vergil/Urizen end up being said true antagonist, who does that leave? smilie

I'm seeing a decent few people that are complaining about DMC5's story and pacing, but it's honestly my favorite in the series by far. (Predictable or not)

People seem to forget that DMC's never really had overly elaborate nor well-paced storylines to begin with.
So it strikes me as a bit odd seeing people complain about this game's story in specific, but giving a pass to others like DMC1 and/or DMC3.

Also, Dante's personality in DMC1 isn't nearly as good as some people like to pretend it is. :/

I think the only problem with the story is that it leaned too much on not expecting you to figure out the plot halfway. I'd save a lot of unecessary scenes to go 'well the player knows who X is already' and focus on more fun interactions instead. Also having Kyrie and the invisible orphans she and Nero supposedly take care of appear in some form because they'd be *great* to add to the game's themes.

Still, it's like Bayonetta - you're not there for the plot, the plot is kinda bad, you're there for writing and the spectacle that it brings.
