Chinese developer Yunchang Game today announced that the action mobile RPG based on Capcom’s popular franchise, Devil May Cry: Pinnacle of Combat, is scheduled to launch in China sometime in 2020 after a few rounds of alpha and beta tests. Other than keeping many elements of the consoles games intact in this mobile version, there will be a brand new story plots as well starring Dante. It was highlighted that Capcom has been closely supervising Devil May Cry: Pinnacle of Combat throughout the entire development phase.
The background story, similar to the original lore, of the game traces back to the origins of how Dante and his brother were born to a demon father and a human mother, following the split in paths led by the brothers. Devil May Cry: Pinnacle of Combat uses an instanced zone map system, similar to games such as Dragon Nest. Players will be able to perform moves such as active dodging, air jump, parry, switching weapons in battle and more.
While it may sound intimidating to players who are not used to difficult controls, especially on mobile devices, Yunchang Games assured that the system has been simplified and optimized without compromising on the system’s depth. Other iconic moves from the Devil May Cry series, such as sliding, Nephilim Dodge, Air Hike, and Demon Form are all in the game. Don’t forget familiar characters and areas as well! In the first test build, players can only play as Dante, wielding Rebellion (blade) and Ebony & Ivory (trademark pistols).
