Dante & Nero are set to return in Devil May Cry 5, a game that made its world premiere at Microsoft’s E3 2018 show.

Representatives from CAPCOM took to the stage including the director of the game who stated “DMC is back!” which prompted cheers from the crowd. It’s been a decade since the release of Devil May Cry 4. It’s finally here: Devil May Cry and Hideaki Itsuno are back. Have a look at the trailer for yourself to see some of the classic demon-slaying action from Nero and his friends (with just a dash of Dante at the end):

The power of the Xbox One X was touted as one of the core elements that were able to make the costumes in the game look as good as they do. The CAPCOM reps also made a point of stating that a game is nothing without controls and that they’ve made a particular effort to tighten them up for the fifth core entry into the Devil May Cry franchise.

Several years have passed since the demonic threat first emerged and there has generally been a peace in the world. Unfortunately, the baddies have returned thanks to the seeds of a demon tree firmly planting themselves in Red Grave City. Nero and his partner Nico travel about in their motorhome nicknamed “Devil May Cry” as they try to figure out what happened to his demonic arm, the source of the demons, and where the heck Dante might be. (Judging by the trailer, he’s probably riding around on a motorcycle somewhere having a blast.)

Devil May Cry 5 will be heading to consoles and PC in Spring 2019.
