Devil May Cry 5 Will Be The Longest Entry In The Series To Date

Fans hoping to prolong that thirst quenching over Dante, Nero and V a little longer are in luck.

In a recent interview with game director Hideaki Itsuno during a media showcase in South Korea, the man behind the digital bloodshed revealed that the game will take players around 15-16 hours to complete, which actually makes it the longest game in the series to date. It is worth noting that this is simply the main campaign and with DMC fans likely to squeeze out multiple playthroughs this figure could well go above 30 hours.

During the interview, Itsuno also revealed some other bits and pieces about the game and its future stating that the continuation of the 2012 re-imagining is still uncertain, as well as possible new characters will be added into the mix for DmC5 at a later date.

It would also appear the team had a bit of trouble originally adapting to using the revamped RE Engine (Originally created for the slower paced Resident Evil 7) at the time, with Itsuno statingĀ “it was difficult to implement the violent action of Devil May Cry“.

However, after playing the game ourselves during PAX Aus late last year, we can happily report that the game is action-packed, bonkers and sexually frustrating as we would expect.

Devil May Cry 5 will unleash on PS4, Xbox One & PC on March 8, 2019.

Although he has been gaming since the Sega Mega Drive launched in 1990, he still sucks at most games. When not being trash he watches French horror films, drinks herbal tea and secretly loves the music of Taylor Swift.
