A very brief look at the Beowulf gauntlets.
The first foray into next gen for the Devil May Cry series will be the familiar Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition. An enhanced re-release of the game from last year, it will add a few key features to the action-packed title. Probably the biggest selling point will be the addition of Vergil, the franchise’s signature sort of antagonist, sort of anti-hero (though don’t worry, current gen owners of the vanilla release can still get him). Today we got a look, a very brief one, at some of his arsenal.
On an episode of a Real eSports News, we got to see a look at Vergil gameplay from Special Edition. As mentioned, it’s very brief, but you can clearly see him using his Beowulf gauntlets, which fans of the series will be familiar with, and switching to some sword attacks. It’s unclear if that will be his entire arsenal and this obviously isn’t an extensive look (thanks to DMCInfo on Twitter for providing the exact clip).
Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition will release on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S at each system’s respective launch with a physical release set to come December 1st. It will also feature a lot of different graphic options, which you can read more about through here.
On the latest episode of ReAL eSports News, a short clip of Vergil gameplay was shown as a teaser for the next episode. The clip features Beowulf gameplay and seems to show a Spectral Force Edge (?) when weapon switching.
