DMC2 campaign was divided into two playthroughs and mostly focused on Dante and Lucia – a boring and unnecessary character. DMC 4 in 2018 corrected this by making both characters, Nero and Dante, equally awesome to play, but the drawback was that players had to play the previous levels over and over again.

Keeping multiple characters balanced in DMC 5 is no longer a problem since the development team has finally found a magic formula for that. With their own specific and diverse capabilities, you will get a lot of amusement and excitement thanks to their awesome play patterns rather than being mad at each character swap. More than that, the levels of the campaign have eventually been adjusted in the most adaptable way.


There was a change made to the combat style of Nero from DMC 4, even though he is still utilizing his definitive flame-revving Red Queen Sword as well as Blue Rose Revolver. He is now equipped with a robot – Devil Breaker after his demonic arm has been forever gone. Devil Breaker has multiple models with different combat mechanics. For instance, the initial prototype Devil Breaker – Overture, releases strong shockwaves that dish out a huge amount of damage to weaker demons. Punch Line will be a Devil Breaker that you will unlock further in the game story, is known as a rocket fish attacking opponents, and Nero is totally able to ride it just like a jet hoverboard.

More Devil Breakers will be unlocked when you make progress through the campaign, together with using Red Orbs for extending the number that Nero is able to carry at a time, which is similar to when you use the same amount of money to purchase the brand new combat skills for three characters. Red Orbs now come back as the primary in-game currency that can be achieved from picking up kills and you can find out lots of red orb trees dispersed around every level. This is where the strategy element becomes effective. Thanks to multiple skills and weapon upgrades spreading across all characters, you will begin staying watchful in picking what to spend them on, which easily serves your favorite play pattern providing you with a reasonable sense of choice

The aspect of arranging your access also applies to assemble the Devil Breakers of Nero, which is also an unfortunate disadvantage. As well as being capable of purchasing separate kinds of Devil Breaker arms for refilling your magazine, several of them will be found when you make your way through every level. Devil Breakers are so weak, they can get broken after being obstructed throughout an assault, bearing a special move or triggering each one’s self-destruct, which substitutes the damaged armed with the subsequent one in the magazine. The issue is that not any Devil Break that you collect transfers to your magazine’s front. It is impossible to change between Devil Breakers until you can get the one you want to use. Through over time, this will become somewhat annoying restraint.

Using the Devil Breaker in combat can be regarded as a joy. Nero can utilize its grapple feature to take foes towards you or conversely, which makes you able to release a lot of powerful combos to the enemies.


Dante is such an outstanding, robust and perfect character inDevil May Cry 5. Players can see his perfection when he partakes in combat. He is armed with swords and guns just like Nero. Dante generates a much bigger assortment of weapons growing bigger as more of the story opens out.

Dante possesses a lot of play styles that can be shifted between each other to improve his fighting: he uses Swordsman for melee attacks, Gunslinger for ranged attacks, Royal Guard for defense and Trickster for eluding. If these things are used with the right weapons at the right times, Dante can dish out such devastating assaults with his powerful weapons. The combos like swords can spin an enemy demon into the air, changing to the Cavalier bike, as well as utilizing it to run over its entire body.

Out of the three characters in Devil May Cry 5, V can be the most enchanting and the mysterious one that causes a lot of curiosities to the players, especially his combat style which is in such a discrepant direction than the rest.

Because V is too weak to fight alone himself, he has three demon pets equipped and they will help him defeat foes for him. These pets are included: a black panther named Shadow for physical assaults, a demonic bird called Griffon for range, and Nightmare – a strong and giant golem-like demon summoned by V when his Devil Trigger gauge is full. While bringing the attacks together with all three to ensure the highest levels of damage and combat rankings, you need to also make sure that V will be able to elude any attacks coming to him. In addition, V is the only one that can dish out the last blow, having to eliminate all enemies before they recover, then withdrawing out of danger’s way again.

So much to take in at first! After several matches, nevertheless, out of the three, V rapidly becomes the simplest one to play because he only uses his patience in knowing when to avoid enemy attacks, and he is not too hasty in dishing out damage as well as waiting for that chance to deliver a deadly attack. These elements are regarded as the crucial key for V to win the battles.


Besides three principal characters mentioned above, enemies in Devil May Cry 5 also play an important role in the game. They are known as aggressive demons to fire, stab and attack to death. These enemies sometimes come in waves that you may feel familiar with other previous games. They will commence as just fragile demonic foot soldiers, but through over time, they will become more intimidating, stronger, and way tougher to cope with.

DMC 5 also witnesses a return of gold orbs – the revival items giving you a full recovery of health. These orbs have been always treated as a valuable resource in the previous games, but this time, the way they have been carried out obstruct their significance a bit. Regardless of being found rarely or being expensive to buy in past games, you will now have more chances to obtain these orbs.

As can be seen from the title menu, there is a catch-up video that is totally able to get you up to speed on the occurrences in the game so far. People who are not familiar with DMC series, will probably get lost in the in-game story if there is not a huge amount of the series context.

Nico is a newcomer NPC in Devil May Cry 5. He is very smart and hilarious in his own way. Being known as a designer of Nero’s Devil Breaker arms, it gives the chance for back-and-forth with the young devil hunter, something that he didn’t have in Devil May Cry 4.
