Devil May Cry 5 Trailer Shows Off V In Action

The latest Devil May Cry 5 trailer shines a spotlight on the mysterious V. He’s debuting in this installment as the third playable character and his play-style looks a good bit different than the other two. Rather than a quick and agile fighter, he saunters around the battlefield with a series of summoned beasts.

The trailer shows V summoning three creatures, called Shadow, Griffon, and Nightmare. He uses the creatures to do the fighting for him, as he stands nearby or even atop them. It’s a different kind of graceful fighting than the one we’ve become accustomed to from Dante and Nero’s acrobatic style.

V also appears to have an axe to grind against the hero, saying Dante should never have existed while holding a sword precariously over his head.

Despite their differences, V and Dante can work together with the game’s just-announced co-op play. DMC5 recently surprised us with pre-loading available five months before its planned release. Capcom has been slowly feeding new details about the game, like its Void Mode training grounds and a whopping $8600 Collector’s Edition in Japan.

Devil May Cry 5 is coming March 8, 2019, and a playable demo is now available on Xbox One. For more details you can check out our pre-order guide.

Smash Bros. Ultimate Sets New Sales Record For The Series

The latest installment in Nintendo’s mascot fighting series, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, is off to an impressive start. The game launched for Switch earlier this month and has already shattered sales records around the globe, becoming the company’s fastest-selling home console game in Europe and breaking other records for the series in the US.

According to Nintendo of Europe, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s total sales in the region over its first three days of availability have been “almost 30% higher” than Mario Kart Wii, which would go on to become one of the company’s best-selling games of all time. Nintendo also notes that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the fastest-selling game in the Eshop “ever.”

Ultimate’s had an equally impressive start overseas as well. In its first 11 days on the market, the game has sold more than 3 million units in the US alone, based on Nintendo’s internal sales data. That makes it the fastest-selling Nintendo Switch game in the region to date, as well as the fastest-selling entry in the entire Super Smash Bros. series.

Other Nintendo Switch games have had impressive sales in the US as well. The console’s recent Pokemon RPGs, Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee, have sold a combined two million units in the region, while Super Mario Party has sold 1.4 million.

Last year’s biggest Switch releases have likewise hit new sales milestones in the US. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has sold more than 4 million units, Super Mario Odyssey has sold 4.7 million, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has sold more than 5 million. Moreover, the Switch itself continues its impressive moment; in November, Nintendo moved more than 8.7 million consoles according to the NPD Group.
