Capcom confirms new Devil May Cry title

Dante is back for more demon slaying action

Capcom has just confirmed that Devil May Cry 5 is in the works for PS3 and Xbox 360.

The title, DMC, is being developed by Heavenly Sword and Enslaved developer Ninja Theory - and was announced just now at Tokyo Games Show.

Capcom called the title a "rebirth" at the event - and it's not hard to see why. Dante is now a teenager.

"We're taking a younger Dante" that incorporates the youth culture of today, from fashion to music to street art etc.," said Ninja theory boss Tameem Antoniades.

A trailer was shown off at TGS - which we'll hopefully have for you shortly.


Ninja Theory is the first Western studio to work on the Devil May Cry franchise, Capcom exec Inafune recently stated that working with Western developers was the key to survival.

Ninja Theory confirmed it would would be revealing its new game at TGS through Twitter earlier this week.

Capcom's recent 'DMC' trademark also included 'downloadable computer games' - suggesting the franchise could branch out into XBLA or PSN.
