Lord Danger + Mike Diva Attack Life’s Doldrums in “Devil May Cry 5”


By Egotist / /

Trapped in a mind-numbing hellscape of suburban apathy? Thanks to the imagination of Lord Danger’s Mike Diva, we now know that Devil May Cry 5 is the cure. The trailer announces the availability of the highly anticipated installment of Capcom’s wildly successful action series – evoking the dreary tone of an anti-depressant ad before evolving into a game-infused mega-fantasy. Neighbors use swords to trim hedges, the immaculate dinner host throws down a flaming gauntlet to tenderize the dinner roast – you get the gist. The trailer is the perfect blend of Diva’s absurdist sensibilities and the fast-paced, stylized combat that the Devil May Cry series is known for. Executed in its entirety by Lord Danger’s creative production studio, the trailer integrates seamless creative direction, production, editorial, CG, sound, and music in-house.

In the Devil May Cry series, brute action alone isn’t enough to defeat the demons — the game grades you on style for how you are providing said demons with the most epic of beat-downs.

Devil May Cry 5 is now available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
