Inafune: Devil May Cry 5 To Have 'Western Touch' To Boost Sales
So it really is coming.
Capcom's Keiji Inafune has revealed Devil May Cry 5 will have a "western touch" to make it more desirable to European and North American gamers.
The last outing for the series came in 2007, but has since gone quiet. Now rumoured to be in development at Heavenly Sword and Enslaved creators Ninja Theory, publisher Capcom wants western sales for the series to grow.
"Devil May Cry 5 is a game that, when started development, this will change a lot in relation to the above."
said Inafune when speaking to Spanish site 3DJuegos
. "The reason is that, despite the franchise has some very loyal followers, their sales are not particularly high, especially overseas."
"For this reason, it is likely that in the fifth chapter will incorporate certain "Western touch" to make it more attractive to American and European players."
Reports earlier this year
suggested the game isn't in Capcom's two-year release schedule, though it is speculated that it will be announced at the Tokyo Games Show later this month.
