The Bloody Palace has been a fixture of Devil May Cry ever since 2003’s Devil May Cry 2. It’s a mode that involves an exhausting climb through monster-filled rooms with hundreds of enemy arrangements and bosses along the way. But it’s also the best place to play around with combos test your skills in real-time.

Devil May Cry 5’s new Blood Palace keeps the basic format, but adds extra variety with numerous characters and boss fights.

Devil May Cry 5 is a fever dance of slashes, air-steps, and ball-crushingly powerful grapples—a bloody monster mash caught somewhere between street brawl and mosh pit. It’s also, according to director Hideaki Itsuno, a “good-feeling” game. When I met him at Capcom’s offices in San Francisco last Wednesday, I wanted to know exactly what that meant. “What are video games that feel good?”

I expected Itsuno to mention something like Bayonetta. Instead, his face lit up and he mimed out a baseball swing worthy of Barry Bonds.

Devil May Cry 5’s cutscenes are stylish as hell, and it must have taken a lot of work to get them right. The Deluxe Edition breaks down that process with behind-the-scenes versions of some of the best cutscenes, and it’s amazing.

The Deluxe Edition has a few extras, including access to the Mega Man mega buster as a Devil Breaker for Nero and special costumes for the heroes. This edition of the game also has a very interesting feature: the ability to substitute some of the game’s cutscenes with live-action pre-visualisation scenes that the developers used to plan out the final product. These videos feature actors and stunt persons acting their way through the scenes, often in clumsy ways. The props are mostly made of cardboard, the monsters are dudes wearing black costumes and silly claws, and the more intense acrobatics are handled by action figures. The result is tons of fun to watch and provides a neat look at how cutscenes are made.

Learning combos in Devil May Cry 5 is not so different from learning a musical instrument; you start out by practicing the simple building blocks and, eventually, you can chain together a stylish set of button-presses that will blow everybody away.

Devil May Cry is known for many things: great combat, cheesy one-liners, devils that rarely, if ever, actually cry. But it’s not known for nudity. That’s made the occasional flashes of forbidden flesh all the more noticeable in Devil May Cry 5, especially given that how much nudity you see is determined by the platform you’re playing on.

The newly released Devil May Cry 5 inspired Tim and I to talk about the idea of games that some might consider “guilty pleasures”, and why sometimes that can be a little misguided. I’m totally fine with liking things that don’t necessarily qualify as artistic masterpieces and delving into what makes “trashier” games so damn good.

Devil May Cry 5 is a wild mess of demonic magic, blood, brooding twinks, butt rock music, kung-fu homage, and joyous gameplay. By the end of it, I had killed literally thousands of demons and watched struggles of Biblical proportions. The experience itself is a blur, but I know two things for certain.

The first is that while there’s nary a drop of romance in the game, every one of Devil May Cry 5’s sexy trash protagonists has absolutely fucked. The second is that every bone-splintering, blood-splattering moment I spent with them was a goddamn blast.
