Devil May Cry 5 is a action-adventure hack and slash video game developed and published by Capcom. It is the fifth installment of the mainline Devil May Cry series, and is scheduled to be released on 8 March 2019.
The gameplay will feature the return of Dante and Nero as playable characters, along with a new character, named "V". The gameplay is similar to the other titles in the Devil May Cry series, focusing on fast-paced "stylish action". The player fights off hordes of demons with a variety of attacks and weapons and receives a style-rating in combat based on a number of factors, such as move variety, the length of a combo and dodging attacks. The music in the game will change based on the player's performance in combat.
