In Resident Evil 7, Monster Hunter World, and now Devil May Cry 5, Capcom has shown the benefits of staying true to your roots
What was Devil May Cry after DMC4 and Ninja Theory’s own DmC: Devil May Cry? Yet in Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, Monster Hunter World and now Devil May Cry 5, Capcom has shown the benefits of staying true to your roots. It largely follows the shape and structure of the 15-year-old Devil May Cry 3. But this is Devil May Cry, pure and simple, and its hackneyed missteps are all for the greater good. Capcom kicked the year off in style, but there are still plenty of great titles on the horizon.
