Some new footage of Devil May Cry 5 has been released focused mostly on V, the enigmatic goth who bears an uncanny resemblance to Kylo Ren. While some of the footage is from the larger trailer earlier this month, there’s also some new footage in there, including story cutscenes showing off V’s true motivation.
Check out the trailer below.
In the trailer, V dryly “jokes” that he’s only two days old, and then takes it back. Later, he stands above an unconscious Dante with the sword Sparda dangling above his head, excoriating him for causing whatever problems V is currently experiencing.
One theory is that V is the reincarnation of Mundus, the demon king villain from Devil May Cry, a theory which is somewhat bolstered by the fact that the demons V summons seem to all be based on enemies from the 2001 game. This would also explain the grudge he seems to bear against Dante, who defeated him soundly and rescued Mundus’ creation Trish from his grasp.
In the footage, we also see V fight against Goliath by summoning an equally large demon to his side. This is the first time we have seen anyone other than Nero fight Goliath, which likely means that V can also do that mission or might fight Goliath again.
Devil May Cry 5 releases on March 8 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
