Devil May Cry 5 Has A Dark Souls-Like Online Element Called Shared Single Play



Capcom shared new details for Devil May Cry 5 in this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine with the “Shared Single Play” online element that allows strangers to play co-op missions together. [Thanks, Ryokutya2089.]


  • When you’re playing a stage you’ll occasionally see other hunters as part of the Shared Single Play online element.


  • These are players from somewhere in the world.While it’s mostly real-time encounters,  there will be times that it is a recording of someone’s play.


  • You’ll get to watch each other play but won’t get to interfere with anything.


  • There are co-op missions and it becomes available depending on the mission.


  • After clearing a co-op stage players get the option to “like” each other. You can get orbs used for continues based on the number of likes you get.


  • The Shared Single Play system requires zero time for matching players.


  • When there’s no one to match with immediately, it takes the data of a player’s previous play.


  • Bloody Palace will release as part of a free update in April.


  • L’arc~en~Ciel’s HYDE recorded a brand-new song for Devil May Cry 5.



Here are the voice actors announced for Devil May Cry 5 in Japan:

  • Nero (CV: Kaito Ishikawa)
  • Dante (CV: Toshiyuki Morikawa)
  • V (CV: Koki Uchiyama)
  • Nico (CV: Lynn)
  • Trish (CV: Atsuko Tanaka)

Ryokutya also commented that there appears to be some missions that are tough enough to almost require co-op to beat.
