Devil May Cry 5 highlights the tragedy of “Donte”

DMC returned in spectacular style with the Devil May Cry 5 reveal at E3 2018. While a few were cautious at first glance, thanks to a new visual style and Nero design that could have easily been mistaken for DmC2, the return of the series’ original characters and story line lit a fire beneath the fandom.

Nintendo has been killing it with their new characters and designs since the start of the Nintendo Switch Era.
