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 Nero; arrives with his partner Nico in their “Devil May Cry” motorhome. Finding himself without the use of his right arm, Nero enlists Nico; a self-professed weapons artist, to design a variety of unique mechanical Devil Breaker arms; to give him extra powers to take on evil demons; such as the bloodsucking flying Empusa and giant colossus enemy Goliath.

The first arm Nico makes for Nero – the Overture Devil Breaker; looks plain in style allowing Nero to wear it inconspicuously throughout the city; but the hidden electric generator inside is enough to shock any demons that come too close. Adding a bit more versatility, the Gerbera Devil Breaker; generates an intense heat that can be shot out as a highly powerful shockwave which can be used as a direct attack; to reflect enemy projectiles or even to propel Nero through the air and augment his capability to evade.

Combined with melee attacks using his ‘Red Queen’ sword and the long-range firepower of his ‘Blue Rose’ handgun; the power of Nero’s Devil Breaker arms add dramatic adrenaline-fuelled action; to the eternal battle between the forces of good and evil; that plays out in the streets of Red Grave City. With the arrival of Dante on his flashy motorbike; the pair of demon hunters are set to try and save the city; and find out what’s behind this latest demon invasion.
