Capcom is gearing up for the launch of Devil May Cry 5, the fifth installment of a series that started way back in 2001. Even if you kept up on every single Devil May Cry game, it’s been nearly two decades and different creators, so keeping track of the whole thing might not be easy. That’s even assuming you’ve played all the games, including the maligned Devil May Cry 2, as everything is free game for references in the latest title.
Thankfully, Capcom has released a “Story So Far” trailer for DMC5. You can remind yourself a bit about the story so far, after Capcom’s insane and wrong retcon that Devil May Cry 4 takes place after Devil May Cry 2, but that’s fine. I’m not bitter. Not bitter at all.
Surprise! The trailer actually just straight up ignores Devil May Cry 2, which is pretty funny on its own.
Devil May Cry 5 releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on March 8.
