Devil May Cry 5 getting next-gen special edition

Last year’s excellent Devil May Cry rebirth is set to receive a next generation edition, complete with a playable Vergil.

Even a Devil May Cry

Well, you couldn’t ask for a much better pure acton experience to launch with a new console than Devil May Cry 5. Launched in 2019, DMC5 was an action gamer’s dream, with excellent play control, great graphics, and a cool story that reinvigorated the world of Capcom’s favorite demon-hunter.

So what’s new then? Well, it’s mainly technical stuff. Capcom says that the next-gen DMC5 will offer “ray tracing technology and enhanced 3D audio”. There is more though, as Turbo Mode and Legendary Dark Knight Mode will return. On top of that, players of the newer version will receive “Deluxe Edition and EX Color Pack content”.

And then there’s Vergil. Dante’s brother will indeed join the cadre of playable characters in DMC5, though it’s unclear exactly how. If you’ve played DMC5, then you know that you can’t just play as any character you like at any time. So how does Vergil fit in?


Motivated by the overwhelming fan requests for playable Vergil, Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition adds to the latest installment in the Sons of Sparda saga by allowing players to play through the destruction of the fictitious Red Grave City as Vergil. In addition to the new Vergil mode, players will be able to take Vergil through the perilous floors of the Bloody Palace challenge mode, while wielding his iconic blade the Yamato.


It should also be pointed out that Vergil will be made available for current editions of Devil May Cry 5 as well. He’ll be $4.99 USD as a downloadable add-on.

Capcom does not add a release date for any of this, however they do say to watch the Tokyo Game Show 2020 coverage for more. So basically, stay tuned.
