Capcom has released the Tokyo Game Show 2018 trailer, new screenshots, and announced a Deluxe Edition for Devil May Cry 5.
The Deluxe Edition will include the following additional content:
- Four exclusive Devil Breaker arms for Nero

- Mega Buster: A weapon that recreates Mega Man’s legendary Mega Buster. Boasting a unique silhouette, it’s designed for long-range attacks. Equipping it activates special variations on the side roll and jump moves.
- Pasta Breaker: A Devil Breaker that makes pasta extra easy to eat. Created by Nico for clumsy Nero from Helter Skelter and Punch Line parts. The revolving fork on the end is neat, but it’s not particularly useful in battle.
- Sweet Surrender: A Devil Breaker created by Nico to relieve Kyrie’s tension. Nero is too rough to do the job without hurting Kyrie, so this device is made of soft materials. Its vibration feature is especially effective at alleviating shoulder and hip pain.

Here is an overview of the trailer, via Capcom:
The city’s gone to hell and back, completely overrun by demons from the underworld. Turns out, it’s not just Red Grave City in trouble. They’re everywhere. In Devil May Cry 5, legendary demon hunter Dante teams up with fellow demon hunter Nero and weapons artist Nico to push his investigation and extermination techniques to the limits. In a new trailer released today, see Dante back in action with his trusty sword Rebellion, guns Ebony and Ivory, and an utterly insane motorbike that splits at the handlebars to create twin blade weapons. Catch all this and much more, including a glimpse of Dante pulling his Devil Trigger, in the trailer featuring Dante’s most over-the-top action gameplay in series history.
Nero and Dante take on the hellish onslaught to get to the root of the mystery behind the blood-sucking demon tree Qlipoth at the city center. Joining them are beloved series heroines and partners Trish and Lady who make a grand return. The full game will feature three playable characters each with their own radically different gameplay style. Play as Nero, Dante, and the newly introduced V, a mysterious new client for the “Devil May Cry” office that speaks in poetic verse. More will be revealed about V in the coming months.
Here is more on Dante and his arsenal, via the Devil May Cry 5 official website:
The strongest demon slayer.
The proprietor of Devil May Cry, and a Devil Hunter of legendary proportions. Dante is a half-human, half-demon hybrid, born to a human woman Eva and the demon who saved the human world, Sparda. He overcame battle after arduous battle in his past, and currently serves as a barrier to any attempt by demons to invade his world. Dante greets any and all challengers with a signature smile on his face. At the behest of a client, Dante jumps back into the fray against demonic forces.
Dante’s Classic Arsenal
Dante is back to blast away powerful demons with his old partners in crime:
Dante’s beloved sword, left to him by his father Sparda. He swings this blade around with ease despite its massive size, allowing for a dense flurry of sword slashes.
—Ebony & Ivory
Rapid-fire pistols designed by Nell Goldstein, the legendary gunsmith. Assembled by Dante himself, each gun has its own faculty—accuracy and speed, respectively.
A shotgun modified by Dante to wield in the fight against demons. Its outstanding power in close quarters more than makes up for its lack of speed.
A Devil Arm made for melee combat, brimming with the sealed power of the king of Fire Hell. Kick Mode unleashes powerful kicks, while Blow Mode allows for nimble maneuvers. Make use of either mode to crush demons with ease.
A heavyweight weapon born of materials infused with demonic power. Lay on the pain with its spinning wheels in motorbike form, or heft it around by the handlebars as a pair of massive twin swords. Dante can even attack from the driver’s seat. The bladed wheels and sharp ram-like protrusions grind demons to bits.
Devil Sword Sparda
The blade wielded by the Dark Knight Sparda, sharing his own name. The incredible power dwelling within allows this blade to choose its own user. This sword was once used to seal away the demon king Mundus.
Dante’s lineage allows him to tap into the power of demons through a process called Devil Trigger. The Devil Trigger (DT) Gauge fills in battle, and activating DT transforms Dante into his devil form. In this form, Dante gains enhanced power and recovers vitality. Activate it in a pinch, or save it for formidable foes ahead—how you use this power is up to you.
Devil May Cry 5 is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on March 8, 2019.
