Today during a PAX West 2018 panel, Capcom made a slew of Devil May Cry 5 announcements, as well as released a slab of new gameplay footage.
First, the announcements. The biggest announcement of the panel was that Devil May Cry 5 will contain a photo mode. But not only will it contain a photo mode, it will also contain a gallery mode. But not only will it contain a gallery and photo mode, it will also come packing a training mode as well. Or in other words, it will have all of the type of extra features that players love.
Unfortunately, Capcom didn't provide any further details on a single one of these modes, however, it did say said details will arrive soon, before launch.
In addition to a dump of mode confirmations, new gameplay footage was shown off. Highlighting said footage was the showcase of seven of the game's eight “Devil Breakers,” which are arms that protagonist Nero rocks as extension weapons. These seven Devil Breakers included: Helter Skelter, Rawhide, Overture, Punch Line, Tomboy, Ragtime, and Gerbera.
Below, you can check out the entire panel for yourself, which includes the new gameplay footage (courtesy of Gematsu). The following time stamps of interest are also provided:
