WHAT WE KNOW SO FAR:
*Around half of the game has already been showcased in nearly its entirety via press preview event. While not all of the mission and cutscenes have been showcased in these previews, there is enough of it where one can get the general idea of where the game is headed story wise and mechanics wise.
Some of the game previews can be found here:
Maximillion's DMC5 Preview
RPS DMC5 Preview
Gameinformer DMC5 Preview
*NOTE: There are confirmed HIDDEN WEAPONS for Dante within this first half of the game but the press is not allowed to talk about it yet. More on this in Dante's section.
*There are 20 missions in the game PLUS a Prologue and an Epilogue. Itsuno has stated that the game will take roughly 15 hours to finish.
BASIC STORY OVERVIEW
DMC5 takes place some years after the events of DMC4.
*V recruits Dante and his crew to take on Urizen, a new powerful demon who has emerged with a giant demonic tree known as the Qliphoth. Urizen seems to be initiating some form of demon invasion, originating around Redgrave City.
*Dante and his crew fails to take on Urizen, V calls Nero for help but Nero fails as well. While Dante and his crew gets captured by Urizen, Nero and V manage to escape, all of which happens in the Prologue of the game. They regroup and with the help of Nico, build up their strength to challenge Urizen again. This is where most of the first half of the game takes place.
*During the first half of the game, we see some flashbacks of previous events most notably how Nero loses his arm. This entire cutscene can be seen online where a hooded figure appears in Nero's garage, rips off his arm and then creates a portal to escape. The hooded figure is almost assuredly Vergil. While his voice is difficult to decipher, by changing the pitch we can identify that it is in fact Dan Southworth voicing the character.
*We know that near the half point of the game, Nero and V are successful in rescuing Dante but Trish is still captured and in fact held in the armor of a Cavalliere Angelo. This is a boss you fight as Dante in Mission 11, freeing Trish. We currently don't have any idea about the whereabouts of Lady but based on trailers, it is assumed that she gets rescued as well.
*Itsuno has stated that the first half of the game is just the set up, the real emotional beats of the story happen in the second half and thus they haven't really shown anything from the first half aside from a few frames. Some of the events include Dante showing off his new weapons like Faust and Cerberus as soon in the TGA trailer and him unleashing his NEW Devil Trigger form.
*Has lost his Devil Bringer arm from DMC4, is now working with Nico who has replaced his previous arm with a new mechanical known as the Devil Breaker.
*Currently Nero has 8 STANDARD Devil Breakers and 4 "special" Devil Breakers that are Deluxe edition only (or you can purchase separately).
8 Standard Devil Breakers: Overture, Helter Skelter, Punchline, Gerbera, Tomboy, Buster Arm, Ragtime
Showcase of the 8 Standard Devil Breakers
5 Special Devil Breakers: Gerbera GP01 , Pasta Breaker, Sweet Surrender, Megaman Buster Arm
Showcase of the special Devil Breakers
*Nero is CONFIRMED to have a Devil Trigger in the game and will in fact get his Devil Bringer back, as leaked in the Void trailer:
We don't really know how this will work with his current Devil Breaker system though.
V - The Mysterious One
*We don't know much about V at this point aside from his game play. Generally any online preview will give you a good enough breakdown and amount of footage of V to get a general feel for he plays. Storywise he is the character that recruits Dante to take on Urizen, the big villain of DMC5. He also recruits Nero after Dante is unable to take on Urizen with his crew of Lady and Trish.
*V fights alongside Griffon (his ranged attack) and Shadow (melee attacks) as his core attacks, has to use his Cane to finish off enemies which is mapped to the O button. His Devil Trigger causes him to turn his black hair white (because the demons are embedded on him via tattoos, even in his hair) and he summons Nightmare. All of these demons were seen in DMC1, maybe hinting at a relationship of V with Mundus?
*V reads poems out of a book that is actually a collection of poems of William Blake. He can read poems to build his Devil Trigger mid combat. However, there are various influences of William Blake in the whole game including Nico's tatoos, the boss Urizen and more.
*You don't get to play Dante until the half way point in the game. He starts off with the Balrog/Rebellion and E&I/Shotgun. Rebellion gets SHATTERED when fighting Urizen and so he takes the Sparda sword with him to get back to Urizen.
*Dante's weapons and styles so far include;
Melee: Rebellion/Sparda , Cavalliere, King Cerberus, Balrog
Range: Ebony and Ivory, Coyote (Shotgun), Faust Hat, Kalina Ann 2.0
Styles: Swordmaster, Trickster, Gunslinger, Royal Guard
Dante Weapons and Styles Showcase
*Dante is CONFIRMED to have more HIDDEN weapons and a new system. It is speculated that he gains access to legacy weapons like Gilgamesh and Artemis from previous DMC games based on the bosses that are in the game (more on this later). A new system is most probably related to his NEW Devil Trigger form and his new weapon that is seen in some of the promotion.
The new Devil Trigger form is very similar to a concept art of his true DT form from DMC4 as well as his majin Devil Trigger or Desperate Devil Trigger form in DMC2.
*Trish and Lady are seen fighting alongside Dante during his confrontation against Urizen. They are easily defeated just like Dante and Nero while being captured to be used inside demons. Trish is seen carrying the Sparda sword while Lady fights with her guns and Kalina Ann.
*Morrison gives Dante V's mission as he is his handler.
*We hear Patty from the DMC anime call Dante to tell him of her 18th Birthday, Dante is not interested at all...
The big bad guy of DMC5, said to be more powerful than even Mundus. Fights everyone on a throne because he is so damn powerful and he looks bored while he is decimating the heroes! Uses attacks from other bosses in the game, as if he has mastery over them. We don't have any solid information on what his motivations and goals are in the game as of yet, just speculation.
LIST OF ENEMIES AND BOSSES CAN BE SEEN HERE!
*This is not a complete list! It's mostly from content seen in the first half of the game!
*The flying mermaid boss is named Artemis and the giant stalker type enemy is called Gilgamesh. There is also a Cavalliere riding on top of a Geryon which is called the Elder Geryon Knight. The Hydra looking boss that V fights is called Nidhogg. Some of these boss names are names of older DMC bosses or even weapons, maybe related to how Dante's hidden weapons/systems feature.
