Let’s party! Season 6 of Video Gameography gets stylish as we look at the Devil May Cry series! Over the next few weeks we’ll be covering the history and lore of Capcom’s first action franchise. In this episode, we say Jackpot to Season 6 as we wrap up with the newest title in the series, Devil May Cry 5.
Devil May Cry 5, released on March 8th, 2019, serves as a return to the classic timeline after a hiatus of over ten years. Nero takes on his lead role, but he is joined by Dante and the mysterious newcomer V. The three demon slayers join forces with familiar allies to battle a powerful demon lord. Longtime DMC director Hideaki Itsuno wanted to hit a “home run” with the title after realizing he might not have many games left, so he went all out. This includes adopting Capcom’s famous RE Engine to give the game the most realistic graphics ever and giving players three completely different playable characters. We’ll unpack the game’s development story, its story (including the big twist), and consider where the series might go next.
And with Season 6 ending, I would like to officially announce that this will be the final season of Video Gameography for the foreseeable future as the series will go on an indefinite hiatus. It can return. It’s not allowed. Due to our smaller staff compared to the demands of the show’s format, it’s just gotten harder to keep it going on my own and it feels like the perfect time to say goodbye and end on a high note. I’d like to thank everyone who tuned in and enjoyed the podcast, all the incredible guests, as well as the show’s creator and my original co-host Ben Reeves (@BenjaminReeves) for letting me join him on this adventure. I also want to thank John Carson (@John_Carson) for being a wonderful second partner on the show. Definitely show these two some love because without them the show wouldn’t have been nearly as good.
