Devil May Cry 5 - V Gameplay Reveal (XB1 Demo out now; Online co-op confirmed)

Nov 30, 2017
Holy shit co-op play confirmed for DMC5!!!

Speaking of seeing others in action, you may have noticed a couple of scenes in the trailer where Nero, Dante and V fight demons alongside each other. That is our brand-new cameo system, made specifically to complement Devil May Cry 5’s single player gameplay. Here’s how it works:

The game is primarily a single player experience, but director Itsuno-san and the team really wanted to tell an epic story with three distinct perspectives and play-styles, where the main protagonists run into each other and collaborate from time to time. So to make that a reality, they’ve implemented a system where, while connected to the Internet, players will make guest cameo appearances in each other’s games in real time, or through ghost data gameplay recordings. Depending on the mission, you’ll see another player in the background, but in other cases, you’ll actually be slicing and dicing demons side-by-side with another players!
Itsuno throwing in everything and the kitchen sink and I am here for it

V's hair turns white, he seems weakened physically, and he has a bunch of cracks in his skin, and is literally named V...that would be too obvious wouldn't it?

Seems like a mix of both.
I suspect this is

The question is if V ist Vergil... Where is Yamato?
I mean I didn''t want to say this but V is defintiely Vergil disguised to keep an eye on the whole crew and to spy on them. The white hair in transformation , the magical swords, the summonings and controls of demons and the name V (this is so obvious like Tobi is Obito) and the devil trigger and like someone said Yamato is in the cane.

Also can't recall, did Dante use rebellion in DMC2? And we're going throughout this entire game without a nero DT?
Yeah, DMC2 was the first appearance of Rebellion, but it didn't look especially Rebellion-y yet:

The lore about each brother having their own signature sword given to them by Sparda only came about in DMC3.

My man Vergil lookin like a straight bum. DMCs story isn’t the greatest, but it’s one of the things I keep coming back for with these games. Despite how great they are mechanically.
I think DMC3 had a really good story. Exploring the themes of family between not just Dante and Vergil but Arkham and Lady really added a lot of depth to the characters.

WTH? Demo is timed. They didn't announce that before:

And finally, we have just announced our first Devil May Cry 5 demo, available as of December 7, exclusively on Xbox One! This will be similar to our events demo, where you play as young demon hunter Nero with his trusty Red Queen sword and Blue Rose hand cannon as well as Overture and Gerbera Devil Breakers. You’ll be able to play through nearly an entire mission, with the epic fight against Goliath waiting for you at the end. This demo will be available for download from December 7, 2018 until January 6, 2019.
