Microsoft has had quite an eventful E3 this year, with strong showings from Halo: Infinite, Dying Light 2, Sea of Thieves, Cuphead, and Gears 5. However, this is not all the company had to show off, with Microsoft officially announcing Devil May Cry 5 for the Xbox One as well.
Devil May Cry 5 will see the return of demon-hunting twins Nero and Dante, and will serve as a direct sequel to Devil May Cry 4 from 2008. The title's description is as follows:
Several years have passed in Devil May Cry 5 and the threat of demonic power, long since forgotten, has returned to menace the world once again. The demonic invasion begins with the seeds of a “demon tree” taking root in Red Grave City. This hellish incursion attracts the attention of the young demon hunter, Nero, an ally of Dante who now finds himself without his demonic arm, the source of much of his power. As Nero heads to Red Grave City in his motorhome named “Devil May Cry” with his partner Nico, he ruminates on how everything started. The loss of his demonic arm, the demonic invasion, and Dante’s unknown whereabouts. Things must be settled once and for all.
