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)

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