Damn! That's too bad. Guess I'll just have to manage with Bloody Palace and the missions then. Thanks for the answer, though!
bunkitz, use mission 12. You have megascarecrows and scarecrows. The scarecrows respawn when you back to the room 4~5x and megas just 1x.
 
Found this ancient trailer for DMC1 - No red overcoat either, just waistcoat and trousers.


Get ready for Summer 2001!
He looks really weird without the coat.
DmC was a good game imo,i had a lot of fun with it.
I ignore all the tiny details(angel demon hybrid,cringe-worthy dialogue,ruining Vergil) and take a macro view of the story.
Just a prequel to dmc3,showing how dante got the white hair,started to hunt demons,the origin of Dante vs Vergil,why the earth is overrun by demons,the family drama with Mundus and why Vergil is power hungry.
It did a fairly better job at explaining things than 3 in some way,which was kinda confusing for a supposedly origin story game.Why is the world already attacked by demons? Why these 2 dudes hate each other so much? etc
Those aren't minor details at all.

And it's not a prequel. If it were, it contradicts a lot of DMC lore. For example, Dante has always had white hair, Dante and Vergil had met beforehand and fought, the earth is not overrun with demons, Mundus has always hated Sparda, and finally, Vergil actually loves his mother.

Thinking back to DmC's reveal gives me goosebumps. Never had I been so repulsed, insulted, and disgusted by anything game-related before that. (Referring to OG DmC Dante's design)

I still don't like the final result, but it's something I can tolerate and is miles better than the original.

Ooh, thanks for the advice! Will definitely keep that in mind for once I get the game this winter sale.

Update from source (the one that says TGA/PSX, take this as a grain of salt as always):

-DMCV is coming to Xbox One too. It is only timed ps4 console exclusive, at this point in time its anywhere from 6 to 12 months exclusivity. Supposedly on this week's announcement it might only say ps4/pc for the time being.

I hope they go back to the original design for Lady. And not the terrible redesign from IV.
I mean besides the boobs she looks similar just with glasses. It happened like 10 years from DM3 to 4, i like the glasses.
I expect slightly more modest designs for both of them but i wouldn't be mad if she doesn't appear and the game focuses on Trish as the rumors say.

Now i just realized i never saw that part in BP, futuristic city :O

I just want to post a reminder of what I posted in the OP as a lot of people are jumping to the conclusion that everything that is posted here is fact and endorsed by the staff of this site.

The OP approached us asking to post this information on ResetEra and we found enough reason to allow it. We'd like to make it clear that this is not an endorsement. The staff cannot verify that all the contents of this leak are accurate. The OP has accepted full responsibility for posting this material and if it turns out to be a hoax they have agreed to take a permanent ban.

Console Timed exclusives makes even less sense to me tbh.

Neither the benefits of gaining an exclusive title, nor the benefits of sales.
Well, tbh this is the first time I'm hearing about an X1 version. Everyone else I've talked to has said PS4/PC.

That being said, Capcom did the same thing with DR4, so I wouldn't be too surprised if there was an X1 version down the line. But like I said, I haven't heard about this from my people. So I can't confirm or deny it on my end.

At all. Either they paid for it to be made or they got marketing. The last thing it makes sense for sony to do is pay to keep a game off the XB1 for 6 months-1yr w/e it is. They’re at a 2:1 ratio and it makes 0 financial sense

I’m, really really scared nothing will happen this week lol
I really doubt the reveal will be this week, unless the stuff about Sony putting money in it is real. Capcom already have MHW to market until its release in February. It's a big project, their most profitable franchise and a huge bet on their part. If there's a focus on game until February, logic would be it will be on MHW. In the best case, if DMC5 is reveal before 2018, it would just be a teaser like Metroid Prime 4, no footage in-game, no gameplay.

The only reason - imo - it could be revealed this week or before 2018 is if Sony want to hype an event with a DMC5 reveal as an exclusivity. But those points make me doubt it :

- Devil May Cry is Capcom second (or third ?) most profitable franchise, but it never helped to sell consoles in the past and I really doubt it could help PS4 selling more than it is already.
- Sony is in "safe" mode, PS4 is selling really well, they don't really need to do anything.

Imo, E3 is a safer bet than this week, BUT, I hope we'll have a nice surprise. Waiting until E3 sucks hard.

Yeah I was talking about the autograph panel. The very first session is TBA until whatever title and team is revealed.

It could be tied to the VR panel, or maybe Kojima and Del Toro will be stopping by. I just thought it was a odd standout in the schedule with any number of possibilities I suppose.
I was off, didn't realize the presentation panels and the autograph signing panels are two different things. The first autograph panel on Saturday is still TBA, crisis averted lol.

i hope we see it but my heart is dead set on e3.
 
DmC is considered by many as a good game which was bad mouthed by fans of the japanese games. For me, it was a mediocre game with an unlikeable main characters, questionable character designs and a dull level design. So I greatly appreciate if the true Devil May Cry V will be announced. The biggest problem I see with a new game is Capcom itself. It's a bunch of greedy people who managed it to ruin most of their most famous IP's because of horrible decisions. So in the end, the japanese team can fuck this up like Ninja Theory did.

I've read through the complete leak and I must say, I am excited. Pretty unlikely the game will be unveiled this week but I'm up for a surprise here. Of course I can't give you 100% of my trust.

Things change who knows, DMC 4 and DmC sold more than 2 million copies , anyways the benefit would be Capcom as SONY will be paying for development/advertisment

Is it? I mean, I would think Megaman, Monster Hunter, Dead Rising and Street Fighter are all way ahead of DMC. Maybe Lost Planet too?

DMCV with a monster PC and a 4K 144hz screen.

Not having to wait months to play a game after releasing on my PS4



/s

I'm glad this is gonna be on Xbox. Releasing a remaster for both DmC and DMC4 on Xbox and then making the next one exclusive is kinda fucked up imo lol.

DmC, despite its flaws is a "complete package". DMC1 is a rough sketch, DMC2 is a mess and DMC4 is half a game. DMC3 and DmC are the only game in the serie that could be seen as complete and polished game. I hate DmC with a passion and I think it's a decent 6/10 game at best, but I have to admit that.

DMC 1 was as polished as it could be for its time and critically acclaimed.
Bosses were recycled but their moveset changed each time, no dufferent from Bayonetta for example

It was still a rough sketch of the serie nonetheless. It's my favourite episode of them all, but still, I admit it's a rough gem.

The top 5 are Megaman, Monster Hunter, Street Fighter, Resident Evil, & Devil May Cry. The Devil May Cry series has sold more than Dead Rising and Lost Planet. Also considering that there have been a bunch of games released in the Megaman, Monster Hunter, Resident Evil, & Street Fighter series that for Devil May Cry to be in the top 5 is quite crazy.
