Devil May Cry 5 is coming soon, and director Hideaki Itsuno has been talking about the title at a South Korean media event. As part of a question and answer session translated by Gematsu, the project lead revealed that the development team has been taking about 15 to 16 hours to complete the campaign, which should give you a rough idea of its length.
Of course, the action of DMC lends itself to mastery, so if you want to beat the highest difficulties and set the best scores, then you’re going to spend a lot longer with the game – it’s still nice to know that the core story takes a fair amount of time to finish, though.
Elsewhere in the interview, Itsuno talked about upgrading the RE Engine for use with Dante’s latest adventure. “Since the RE Engine was originally created for Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, it was difficult to implement the violent action of Devil May Cry,” he said. “We focused on upgrading the engine’s processing speed and performance.”
It looks very impressive, so hats off to all concerned!
