Emperor’s new prose
Devil May Cry 5’
s story is set to pick up where the fourth title left off. Nero is just one of the three characters you’ll play as (Dante being the second, the third unconfirmed). Nero has set up a new demon-hunting agency out of his van, working alongside brilliant engineer Nico, the brains behind his elaborate new Devil Breaker arm. He’s out to get revenge on the person who necessitated his new limb – his Devil Bringer was ripped from him by a cloaked figure. By the looks of it, it’s almost certainly Vergil (now confirmed to be Nero’s father, by the way: ouch). This raises a couple of possibilities, in our mind: that Vergil could be the third playable character, and that Devil May
Cry 5’ s story could well be slightly more coherent than usual.
