As someone who has never played a Devil May Cry game but still hate DmC by proxy for various reasons, I'm happy this game is happening if only to see the people who defended DmC solely to Own The Fanboys cry about how it's not DmC 2.
arguably Sonic, Classic games > long list of modern games > Mania
you can count classic Mega Man as well
eh, I think that's different because they still made Forces, a "modern" game. There's a difference between "we're making 'classic'-style games in this series again but also still making 'modern' stuff" and "we did what was intended to be a big revamp/change in direction for the main line of this series, everyone hated it, so now we're back to doing what we did before again."

Honestly, it's not a video game but the New Coke controversy may be the best parallel here.

So with Capcom bringing back franchises like DMC and Mega Man back from the dead, I wonder what are the odds of a new Dino Crisis.

Better examples were provided like PoP etc, also Dragon Ball Super basically ignores GT existence

Time to party.

Hope Capcom brings their A game to this one.
This time Dante should be a tubby 12 year old and he could walk by a mirror and a white wig could fall on his head and he could be like "not in a million years" and then a black wig could fall and his head and he could be like "much better I feel way cooler now" and then he could toss his head to reveal his true pink hair and be like "jackpot baby" and then he could turn to the camera and say "I might be fat but at least I've got a big dick. Suck it Vergil!"

Oh also the game wouldn't be an action game it would be a walking simulator with stealth elements.

I'm so ready for this! Please be multi-platform so it can sell as much as possible and keep going! Also RE2 Remake would be cool to see. :D

Capcom/GMO also registered the domains "devilmaycry6.com", "devilmaycry8.com" and "devilmaycry9.com" all on the same day: May 18.







What makes the domain for DMC5 so important is that, unlike the other numbered domains, the DMC5 domain is on dedicated servers used for actual websites, while the others are on the GMO "domain acquired" servers. This is pretty big.

Capcom was unable to register "devilmaycry7.com" as a squatter owns that domain at the present time, so they most likely went with what they could openly acquire.
Do you know if the doman for "residentevil2.com" is on a dedicated server as well? It would be a little bit more reassuring if it was used for an actual website as well.

Has there ever been a case of a game being rebooted, then the reboot gets completely ignored and main series continues on?
I mean i think this case is different, for all people repeating this.

DmC isn't made by the same team as the mainline games, its more like an alternate continuity/spin off than anything else, Itsuno has been clear on this since 4SE was announced (and before, but that time was used to hype DmC)

Its like.

So...Capcom salvaged SFV with a great re-release that got praised, recently announced Mega Man 11 which got glowing previews a few days ago, and now they have Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry V in the pipeline.

Return of Capgod?

I see, thanks for clarifying. So to be clear, the same team that worked on DMC4 is expected to return for this one?

You forgot Monster Hunter World being one of the best games this year, with no scummy loot box BS + lots of free post-launch content. But some people like to pretend they don’t know just so they can keep shitposting played out memes and misinformation. Ignore function is nice.
