In addition, there’s a surprising amount of extended-universe lore acknowledged in DMC5 that even hardcore fans might not even recognize.
DMC5 thrives on the stylistic and mechanical prowess of its predecessors. It sticks to tradition above all else, pursuing a few ambitious new ideas along the way, but mostly maintaining the series’ focus on intricate fighting systems and campy bravado. Rarely does the game stumble, consistently leveraging its spectacle and mechanical depth to push aside any small frustrations. All the while, the story exudes a charismatic charm that keeps you constantly intrigued as you’re refining your skills. DMC5 proves the series can still be brilliant and imaginative without compromising its longest-held traditions.
If you got your hands on the deluxe edition, you’ll notice that Nero gets a Devil Breaker that’s legitimately Mega Man’s buster arm. While it expectedly shoots buster shots of varying charges, equipping it also changes Nero’s animations. When you jump, Nero extends his arms out like Mega Man does when he jumps; though, seeing Nero not have his mouth open while doing this jump is a smidge off-putting. In addition, dodging left or right causes Nero to slide just like Mega Man does. This animation change in particular is incredibly handy, as it increases the speed of Nero’s dodges, making it easy to avoid enemy attacks.
