Devil May Cry 5 is the direct sequel to Devil May Cry 4, as to avoid any recognition to the reboot that occurred in 2013 that many fans found unfavorable. During an event for Devil May Cry 5, director Hideaki Itsuno was asked if he was willing to remake any game in the Devil May Cry series and here’s what he had to say;
“You know, it’s interesting because no one’s really come to us and said, “Okay, make a remake of any of the DMC games,” but I would love to do something like that.”
“I, personally, have a strange soft spot for Devil May Cry 2, which is something of a black sheep in the series…. the only thing is, it always becomes a matter of, should I remake Devil May Cry 2? Or I could just make a Devil May Cry 6. Generally I’m going to be interested in making the brand new game”
Naturally, I think like any artist, they’d always prefer to move on and do something different to further grow and expand rather than rehash old games so I can completely understand where the director is coming from.
Also recently revealed, was the option that Capcom gave to Hideaki Itsuno, where he could choose to make Dragons Dogma 2 or Devil May Cry 5. After, presumably, thinking long and hard about it, he decided to make Devil May Cry 5. Much to the dismay of many Dragons Dogma fans across the globe, including myself, as I felt the game was severely underrated and a new one would have fixed the small mistakes of the previous, making for a great game! I am still very much looking forward to Devil May Cry 5 though and this new addition to the series looks perfect!
Devil May Cry 5 is coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One on March 8.
