Why we're Fanatical about the latest hack and slash title from Capcom

Devil May Cry 5 - What we know so far

Levitating demons into the air by spraying bullets before bringing them back down to earth with a swift kick or a swing of a sword - Devil May Cry, we have missed you!

Hack and slash action-adventure Devil May Cry 5 leads Capcom's popular franchise into its 18th year, with the legendary demon hunter Dante and former holy knight Nero teaming up once more to take on a new demonic threat - with an extra protagonist to mix up the roster!

Ahead of its release on Friday, we take a look at what to expect and why we're Fanatical about Devil May Cry 5.

Why we're Fanatical about Devil May Cry 5

We're excited to see the DMC series return with photorealistic graphics thanks to a modified version of the RE Engine (used in Resident Evil 7 and Resident Evil 2 Remake). In the latest installment, players will control three separate protagonists - the returning Dante and Nero - and 'V', a brand-new character.

After a strange 'Demon Tree' emerges in Red Grave City, a new army of devilish creatures now roam the streets causing chaos - it looks like the demon hunters are getting paid this month!

DMC 5 follows the series' grade-style combat, where pulling off wicked combos will earn players more points and a better ranking - as well as additional tracks based on your gameplay. Dante and Nero's combat styles and perks will feel familiar to gamers, but Nero has an extra trick up his sleeve (quite literally). The young demon hunter - from what we've seen in the original trailer - loses his powerful devil arm in a horrific attack to an unknown enemy.

With the help of his friend Nico, Nero now possesses different mechanical Devil Breaker arms - each with their own special attacks and strengths. One quirky feature about these Devil Breaker arms is that they're consumable, meaning that players will only have a certain number of uses during various missions and fights.

Dante's devilish powers return in DMC5, as well as his trademark dual pistols, Ebony & Ivory. This time however, the Son of Sparda can use the Cavaliere R motorcycle to mow down enemies, which can also be split in half and used a to buzzsaw-like weapons!

V has a slightly different combat approach to Dante and Nero, and relies on spirit-like animals to take down enemies before he moves in to deal the final blow.

The mystical Red Orbs will also be reappearing in the game, scattered across the map in breakable objects as well as being obtained from enemies. These orbs will allow you to upgrade Dante, Nero and V's moves - there are microtransactions, but Capcom has confirmed that these will not result in any 'grinding' for players who choose not to purchase them.

All in all, players are looking at around 15 to 16 hours of story to venture through, now with 3-player online multiplayer. Not a lot has been said about the multiplayer so far, but from what's been reported, gamers will be able to join the fight via the 'cameo system'.

This system basically uses ghost data gameplay recordings of other DMC5 players, which means that you'll make a cameo appearance in someone else's game (or vice versa) in real-time. Another new mode included in DMC5 is the 'Void', a training arena that allows players to test any unlocked moves and weapons without worrying about their style ranking in the story mode.

Why you should buy it now
