“Devil May Cry 5”: Now it’s your turn, Nero!

by Nathan Dutil

Marcelo Jabulas | GameCoin Writing – Hack & Slash style games (beat games) had their heyday in the 2000s. appeared in sequence. Some franchises have even sought to incorporate elements of exploration and non-linear gameplay, like God of War, but for the folks at Capcom, Hack & Slash has to be the traditional route. The way she created it in 2001.

Devil May Cry 5 has just hit the market promising the same level of intensity as it did 18 years ago. The series chronicles the misadventures of Dante, a demon hunter who must drive these Underworld creatures away from the surface. Over the course of the franchise, the hero has gained new companions, such as Nero, a hunter who has the skills and powers of the inhabitants of hell.

In this new adventure, the sovereign demon of the Underworld wants to return to the surface. For this, he cut off Nero’s demonic arm. The limb served as the key to an invasion. Dante went to the underworld to settle the matter, and a paralyzed Nero also descended to settle the score with the wrong thing. That’s basically the end of the story.

However, the plot takes place in an earlier period, before Nero went to the inner world. For those new to the series, it’s worth watching the video, included in the game, which gives a summary of the story. But those who don’t stick to the plot can walk to the pagoda without thinking twice.


Devil May Cry 5 is a very well made game, with impeccable graphic quality and a steam punk aesthetic, with very dark gothic elements. A positive point are the animations, full of acrobatic scenes, slogans and also by the acidity of Nico, Nero’s assistant, who runs the mobile office of Devil May Cry, which is in fact a kind of company of demon hunting, like Ghostbusters, but with less polished methods.


DMC5 is classic Hack & Slash. In other words, a game of relentless blows and gigantic level bosses. There is no shortage of hit “combos”, which give the player performance points that add up on the game’s scoreboard.

As in all games of the genre, the player collects gems that he can exchange for new skills, powers and weapon upgrades. Nico has a flea market, accessible at the end of each mission, or contacted via public telephones.


Nero basically has three weapons, a revolver, a sword (with motorcycle grips), and the Devil Breaker, which is nothing more than a set of disposable prosthetics for the amputated arm. In the game, there are several types of these robotic limbs, which allow different types of attacks.
