Rumor: Capcom To Unveil Devil May Cry 5 At E3
It probably won't come as a huge shock to learn that Capcom is working on Devil May Cry 5, but what if it appeared at E3...? That would be worth talking about!
Now, we have heard that Capcom plans to unveil two brand new games at the show this year, in addition to the probable inclusion of Lost Planet 2 and Dead Rising 2. One of them has been recently revealed to be Tatsunoko vs. Capcom but the other could very well be the fifth installment in the critically acclaimed action franchise. Apparently, a source close to CriousGamer says that Capcom will indeed announce DMC5 at E3; it's being made for all major platforms, including the Nintendo Wii. The teaser that we'll supposedly see is only about a minute and a half long but it should give us an estimated release date, at the very least. We loved Devil May Cry 4 and any time there's news of a fresh entry in the series, we get very excited. Really, the only black mark on the entire franchise is DMC2, but we're all trying to forget that; we have every confidence that DMC5 will kick ass. If you want flash, fast action, and a whole lot of attitude, there is no better option for avid gamers.
So now there's another game to look out for in a few weeks time. It may not be a show-stealer - not with the likes of God of War III guaranteed to blow everyone away - but if it's announced, DMC5 will definitely turn some heads.
