Glorious! This news makes me want to replay the whole series again. Thank you Sony for helping Capcom make this game happen!
Sony sure does like helping bring back classics. Crash was another example they somewhat helped by proving the original level geometry.

I hope for a PSX reveal too... Isn't the industry trying to break away from E3? PSX should be huge, it would almost seem in Sony's best interest to start having exclusive PSX reveals over saving them for E3... Especially if they are helping to fund the development of the tile.

I first saw Devil May Cry mentioned in a PSM article in the year of our lord 2000 at my local Wal Mart grocery store. [...]
Just wanted to say I read through all of that, and it deserved better than to be last post of the page. I particularly related to the part about DMC2's pre-release hype and subsequent devastating disappointment, but it mirrors my own feelings about the series (except that I didn't play DmC, and DMC3 is still my favorite, even though DMC4 is phenomenal).

Out of curiosity, what's your opinion on TW101? It might be my favorite character action game of all time.

I think TW101 is interesting and misunderstood. I wouldn't say it's Kamiya's best work (game has some definite issues that can't be ignored) but it's a good game for sure.

I admire your politeness in the face of someone basically calling you an attention seeking liar.
I understand how they might not believe this. I've been in the same position with other leaks in the past.

I really hope Capcom and Sony pull the trigger early (maybe if this leaks gets shared a lot and becomes big enough?) and announce the game this year (DMCEra and YakuzaEra know why this is especially true for me right now) but my sources are saying otherwise and I have to accept that.

To be fair, that was probably decided before all this leaked.

Now that it's out there, the future might change.

Hm... I guess with DMC5 being a Sony exclusive Kamiya has no chance of making that Dante x Bayo crossover since she belongs to Nintendo. It's like a tragic love story.
Just like how SF5 prevented Ryu from being in Smash and the Xbox One and PC versions of Tekken 7 had Maxi from Soul Calibur instead of Akuma.

First time I've ever played any Devil May Cry game was DmC (which was great). Never played any of the original. Should just playing 4SE be enough for this?

DMC4 wasn't really his story, so his personality in that made sense imo.
The most obvious thing for that would probably just to have Sparda show up,

And the biggest new game announcement, the Psychonauts 2 Fig reveal, wasn't even at that show.

It's not the place for big AAA announcements.
It had some of the biggest AAA announcements like Skyrim and Mass Effect 3 when it was still the VGAs with Spike and while they clearly had to scale back when Keighley took over, I still expect it to have 2-3 big announcements this year.

Also Bayo doesn't belong to Nintendo, lol. She belongs to SEGA. Nintendo only owns Bayonetta2

Welp, the fire's certainly lit now. The worst part will be the waiting. Apparently, we will not get confirmation of this until E3 2018 so at least 8 more months of waiting. But now we have hope...

It's a completely different company and set of people running things. It's not the VGA Awards in any way, it only follows the same format.

I'll say it again, expecting any AAA announcements there will only lead you to disappointment.

I mean, putting the tinfoil hat on and all, it's possible that a leak of this sort was made and "encouraged" to put out there because they want to move the announcement up. If the cat is already out of the bag, why wait any longer? Damn the standard Capcom trend to keep the hype and advertising cycles to a 6-12 month limit!

Even them not using the Souls/open world progression, im delighted to hear that.

I jumped so high after i saw this post.

So, nothing about if Dante will have a change in the visual? Or if he gonna look just like in DMC4 again.

feels almost like tradition for him to change appearance at least a bit. Even if he is more serious, I hope they redesign a bit - Uncle Dante was my fav personality, but the wardrobe is due for an update.

You know what, if Capcom was smart, and if DMC"5" actually exists, it would behoove them to have the story be a soft-reboot (at best) than to continue the storyline of a ten year-old game with a trash-tier plot.
