It has been confirmed that Capcom’s latest Devilish Action Game will feature a tonne of Micro Transactions in which you can upgrade your in-game characters with extensive unlockables.
We don’t really see the benefit of why the consumer would want such access… If These unlocks grant you access to new weapons and upgraded skins then we can get behind that. However to simply power up your character? No Thanks.

We recently had the opportunity to play Devil May Cry 5 at TGS. The demo shown behind closed doors featured Dante, the original star of the series who is now considered a secondary character to Nero in the new sequel. During our demo we encountered the Divinity Statue, which acts as a shop where you can trade in orbs collected during combat and exploration, and in that menu we discovered that players will have the option to spend real money to accrue more orbs if they wish to expedite the upgrade process and beef up Dante earlier than usual.
Speaking to Hideaki Itsuno, director on the game from Capcom, we asked why this system is necessary in a game like Devil May Cry 5, and the reason given was a familiar one: it’s about giving players options to play the game as they wish. “With giving people the ability to purchase Red Orbs, it’s something we want to give people as an option. If they want to save time and just want to get all the stuff at once, those people can do that. But on the other hand I don’t feel you have to get all the moves, ” said Itsuno. “You should be able to play it the way you want to play it.”
It was a bit surprising to discover that such a feature exists in Devil May Cry 5, but it’s not the first game in the series to feature them–they were also a part of Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition. – Gamespot.
Devil May Cry 5 Will be available Early 2019. You can find this Stunning Action Game from Capcom on PlayStation 4, XBox One and Steam.
