Series director Hideaki Itsuno has confirmed that Devil May Cry 5 has a demo completed, and will be available to play at this year’s Gamescom.

The news comes by way of a tweet from Itsuno, who said that it will debut in ten days:

It’s sure to come as good news for series fans, giving players a chance to get to grips with  some of the changes in the new game.

Recently, Capcom said that they are aiming for photorealism (not just with faces, but with clothes as well!) with Devil May Cry 5, along with a consistent 60fps.

Aside from that, the game looks like a strange creature. Many will have noticed Nero’s hair, which looks a bit like Dante’s in Ninja Theory’s excellent DmC: Devil May Cry.

Despite this, DMC5 is more in line with Capcom's previous Devil May Cry games than it is with DmC. Recently, Capcom boss Antoine Molant spoke to GI.biz about the choice of direction for the game:

'The last game was very good, but there were a few unhappy voices because it wasn’t a direct sequel and other things. Because of that, the dev team sat down and asked: "Where do we take that next?" And it was known that the community wanted Devil May Cry 5 to be closer to 1, 2 and 3. And so the project was born.'
