Devil May Cry 5 is the direct sequel in the acclaimed franchise and takes place years later with a new set of characters. The title looks absolutely stunning running on an Xbox One X because it achieves high visual fidelity while maintaining its smooth gameplay. While the game hasn't generated as much hype in recent months, it still looks like a compelling experience which may receive critical acclaim when it launches in March 2019.

Today, Devil May Cry 5 received a new update which showcases gameplay from the mysterious "V." It's unclear how this character fits into the plot, but at this point it's safe to assume that we'll be playing as many different demon slayers. Hopefully these sections will be limited because Nero has the coolest moves by far. The trailer is quite stylish.

According to Capcom, director Hideaki Itsuno and the core team have returned to create the most insane, technically advanced, and utterly unmissable action experience of this generation. That's a tall claim. The threat of demonic power has returned to menace the world once again in Devil May Cry 5. The invasion begins when the seeds of a "demon tree" take root in Red Grave City. As this hellish incursion starts to take over the city, a young demon hunter named Nero, arrives with his partner Nico to stop the threat.
