I distinctly remember playing the platforming sections in Devil May Cry 4 and pulling out so much hair that I spent the rest of the day bald. It comes as a pleasant surprise, then, that the platforming in the upcoming fifth installment, DmC, looks a lot more fluid and enjoyable in this latest trailer.

The video, seen below, was just released in Japan. There’s little to no dialogue, though, so you can watch it easily if your tongue and ears are exclusively English. In it, we see some imaginatively designed levels that allow Dante to swing and grapple around the large-scale environment with grace and, most importantly, ease. The random writing that appears on the environment is something we’re sure Ninja Theory will utilize well for their storytelling. Near the end of the video, we see a boss fight against a large and fairly unattractive boss that was recently revealed as a succubus. She/it looks fun to fight, and is very reminiscent of bosses from God of War and Dante’s Inferno.

DmC releases January 15th for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.Make sure to follow OnlySP for more English news.

  1. "Obesity" and "stupidity"? Well, that boss looks pretty fat, and maybe she&#039s an idiot, so that could be the meaning behind those floating words. Either way, it does look like an entertaining fight. The combat looks very faced paced and fluid. Hoping for something like old DmC.
