David from PassionForGames writes: Devil May Cry 5s existence is remarkable. Devil May Cry 4s troubled development led to a positive response upon launch, which has fallen more out of favor as discourse has evolved through the years. Ninja Theorys divisive reboot, followed by a Definitive Edition release two years later didnt instill much confidence in the original series return. The DMC 4 Special Edition released that same year felt more like throwing a bone anything else. 12 years after Devil May Cry 4s original release and only a year and a half after vanilla DMC 5, Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition is the culmination of the genres growth since its inception. As Hideaki Itsuno said, DMC IS BACK!
