As we are nearing the release of Devil May Cry 5, Director Hideaki Itsuno revealed a few new tidbits of information about the game during a media showcase event in South Korea that reveals the game will take about fifteen to sixteen hours to complete.
Usually in a Devil May Cry game, players can easily finish them in about eight to ten hours but with Devil May Cry 5, it’s twice longer than previous titles. In addition, Itsuno also revealed that they might add more additional playable characters if there will be enough demand and yes, there will be hidden weapons that you can unlock for Nero, Dante, and V.
Below are the tidbits of information that was revealed during the event:
Why is the story set after Devil May Cry 2?
The reason it is set after Devil May Cry 2 can be understood by playing the game.
What was difficult about using the RE Engine?
Since the RE Engine was originally created for Resident Evil 7: biohazard, it was difficult to implement the violent action of Devil May Cry. We focused on upgrading the engine’s processing speed and performance.
There are three protagonists, so how long will the game take to complete?
The development team took about 15 to 16 hours to clear the game.
The visuals are similar to DmC Devil May Cry, but what is the future of that series?
It might look that way since we were shooting for photo realism, but we were actually aiming for something Hollywood movie-esque like The Avengers. As for the future of DmC Devil May Cry, that is difficult to say.
Will there be additional playable characters
If a lot of users request it, we may add more playable characters.
Are there hidden places, items, enemies, and powerful monsters?
There are a few hidden weapons.
Devil May Cry 5 will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on March 8. A new demo of the game will be out on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on February 7.
