Well, if predictions of this game happening after DMC2 are correct, at least one of these two might be kind of... dead.

Well, theories abound that Trish is implied to be dead in DMC2, which in turn is implied to be the cause why Dante is a bit more... subdued in that game. As for Playable Trish in DMC2, apparently that's non-canon.
It is precisely because it never cared, that people do care.  It's something which it's lacking, because that which it has, it has lackluster of.

@Aiddon I agree about the Westernisation of characters' appearances being bothersome. Nero has a whole Chad Michael Murray/ David Boreans thing going on and I don't get it. If they'd taken DMC4 and given him the shorter hair but with stubble it would actually feel like the same character. Since Street Fighter IV there's been a spate of Americanisation in game graphics which I frankly never understood.


The gameplay actually looks decent, I'm not sure anything is going to beat DMC4SE for me, but I'd certainly give it a go.

Info taken from a couple interviews conducted by Microsoft and Inside XBox. https://mixer.com/Xbox?vod=38224649 (starts 3h53m) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jyLsYii7wOE&t

Some highlights (and info from the Japanese Twitter feed):

-The man at the beginning of the trailer is none other than Morrison from the DMC anime (seriously, apparently they changed his race) so the anime is indeed canon

-The crux of the city is about a giant demon tree growing in Redgrave City (the city clearly is meant to evoke Dante's old alias Tony Redgrave)

-The demon at the beginning among fountains of blood is of course a major villain. According to Itsuno he's 26 feet tall and according to Twitter he's an emperor of demons

-Like the end of the DMC4 novelization Nero was gifted a Devil May Cry sign by Dante and has opened his own branch of the DMC business. His is mobile, the van being the actual office and even has a reception area.

-The woman with Nero is Nico, a weaponsmith who designed his prosthetic Devil Breaker arms. Her grandmother is Nell Goldstein, a gunsmith. Nell was actually a character in a non-canon novel who designed Ebony & Ivory.

-Nero will acquire several different Devil Breakers throughout the game and they all have different abilities. Ones revealed have abilities similar to the Devil Bringer (the classic Snatch and Buster abilities), another is rocket-infused allowing Nero to it launch at enemies and keep them in a juggled state and he can even ride the rocket like a skateboard, yet another is electricity-infused so he can strike with an electric punch or charge a scatter shot that ricochets around, and yet another gives him the ability to slow enemies. Overall these seem to be the equivalent of Dante's Styles system

-The Breakers deteriorate and Nero replaces them with spares he carries. This doesn't affect gameplay and is just an attention to detail.

-Nero appears to now have a shotgun in his arsenal (60 second mark of the Inside XBox video)

-Sins from DMC3 return

-Playable at GamesCom and will have more info about the Breakers

-There will be an event detailing more of the game on June 20: https://twitter.com/devilmaycry_jp/status/1007078193529016320
 
-The theme playing during the trailer is called "Devil Trigger" by Ali Edwards and is now available: https://twitter.com/DevilMayCry/status/1006581905112883206

Its music video has hints to the third playable character (revealed in a leak to be named V)

No, V is clearly NOT Vergil. They're seen on the cover and have black hair with their arms covered in tribal tattoos. Plus in a leak they're said to summon demonic bodyguards, which isn't even close to Vergil's personal style.

Anyway, Famitsu interview detailing some things:

https://www.famitsu.com/news/201806/14159103.html

Highlights include:

-The Devil Breakers degrade and will need to be replaced (WHY????????) by buying them from Nico.

-They're being very coy about the new playable character, not even clarifying gender but have some hints in the music video for the song played during the trailer. They'll include Easter Eggs throughout promotional material

because unlike BASICALLY every other weapon in the series they're not magic demon weapons with infinite durability?

Hang on, is there some sort of miscommunication going on here?

I meant from a gameplay standpoint. That's...just awkward. It's pointless micromanagement, which is detrimental to a game like DMC where you're supposed to be thinking as little as possible. Plus even saying "well they're not demon-made"  doesn't work either because that doesn't explain why Lady is still using Kalina Ann for over a decade (probably close to twenty years at this point). And Devil Arms have been broken; as we saw with DMC4 Yamato is broken before Nero wills it back together. Players are willing to suspend disbelief for good reasons, especially for something as fantastical as DMC

Full translation of the Famitsu interview:

https://dm.reddit.com/r/DevilMayCry/comments/8rjw7k/full_translation_of_famitsu_interview/?st=jihutddw&sh=b6c093a7

"We particularly focused on making good-looking characters so we modeled the characters after real fashion models to create a stylish DMC that is also realistic."

That explains why Dante looks like a heroine addict
