This Is What Makes Devil May Cry 5 A DMC Game According To Hideaki Itsuno

We have got another trailer of Devil May Cry 5 and we also got a demo of the game and it looks really good. While I have talked about I feel about the demo and what the fans think, here we are going to talk about what the creator of the game thinks.

Hideaki Itsuno talked about the upcoming game in a recent interview and he mentioned what made Devil May Cry 5 a DMC game. The following is what he had to say in this regard:

My hope was that when people see Nero, and people see Dante doing really cool stuff on screen, that makes them feel like they’re the ones being cool and stylish. And then also, that players are the ones making those decisions, they’re the ones actually touching the controller and making the inputs.

He also mentioned that the players needed to feel good about themselves when playing the game and that is what makes Devil May Cry 5 a DMC game. The following is what he had to say regarding the matter:

So the hope is that when they do that, based on the information they have based on what the enemies are doing, based on the situations, it feels intuitive, and that it feels like they made the right choice when they made their inputs. And that feels just as good as it looks. So having those two portions, make the player feel good about themselves, is what makes Devil May Cry, Devil May Cry.

In the new Devil May Cry 5 trailer, we got a few more glimpses at Dante and Itsuno confirmed that in the upcoming game Dante will be more like DMC3 rather than DMC4. I am not sure what he meant by that and we will learn more about Dante at TGS but the following is what Itsuno had to say in this regard:

We’re going to go more into detail about Dante at TGS, but in terms of whether he’ll more like his DMC 3 or 4 iteration, we’ll have to say more like DMC 3.

Itsuno was also asked whether he planned on making a similar game with a female character as the main playable character to which he replied that he did not really consider the sex of the character and he just looked at the idea as a whole. He also teased that V might not be a guy after all. That is something interesting indeed. The following is what he had to say regarding the matter:

The way we approached it was, “Okay, here’s all the stuff that we want do with the franchise and the story any everything,” so I never considered what sex should this character be, you know? It was just, “Hey, this is the idea.” Either way, Nico is someone we always wanted to be this weapons artist. And then otherwise, we technically haven’t announced any details on this third character yet, so we haven’t announced whether it’s a man or a woman.

Devil May Cry 5 seems to be a great game and I for one am interested in giving it a go when it comes out next year. For more information regarding Devil May Cry 5 stay tuned.
