Which Devil May Cry 5 Edition Should You Buy?

It has been 10 years since the release of Devil May Cry 4, which is the latest installment of the Devil May Cry series (And nope, DmC doesn’t count). Devil May Cry 5 is coming March 8, 2019 and will have different editions released to the public. So without further ado, here are the different editions of Devil May Cry 5 that you could buy.

1. Standard Edition

Price: $59.99

What it comes with:

  • The game itself (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or Steam).
  • Alternate hero colors and alternate heroine colors (For Steam, or if the game is downloaded for Xbox One or PlayStation 4).
  • Devil May Cry 5 wallpaper (For Steam only)
  • Devil May Cry 5 theme (For PlayStation 4. Only comes if the game is downloaded).
  • Buster Arm Early Access (For Xbox One. Only comes if the game is downloaded).

Advice: Buy this if you only want the game itself. If you are interested in the bonuses for this edition, you can download it instead of buying it from the store. If you do not mind spending an extra $10, I suggest going for the next edition on this list.

2. Deluxe Edition

Price: $69.99

What it comes with:

  • The game itself (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or Steam).
  • 100,000 Red Orbs (To get you started in powering up your characters).
  • 4 special Devil Breakers for Nero
    • Gerbera GP01: “A special Devil Breaker inspired by the legendary creator Shoji Kawamori. Fires shockwaves from its five fingers, which can be controlled freely on the ground or in the air.”
    • Sweet Surrender: “A Devil Breaker created by Nico to relieve Kyrie's tension. Nero is too rough to do the job without hurting Kyrie, so this device is made of soft materials. Its vibration feature is especially effective at alleviating shoulder and hip pain.”
    • Pasta Breaker: “A Devil Breaker that makes pasta extra easy to eat. Created by Nico for clumsy Nero from Helter Skelter and Punch Line parts. The revolving fork on the end is neat, but it's not particularly useful in battle.”
    • Mega Buster: “A weapon that recreates Mega Man's legendary Mega Buster. Boasting a unique silhouette, it's designed for long-range attacks. Equipping it activates special variations on the side roll and jump moves.”
  • Battle tracks from DMC 1-4, 12 tracks: Allows you to change the battle music to tracks from the previous Devil May Cry games (Again, not counting DmC).
  • Alternate Style Rank Announcers and Alternate Title Calls. Both can be changed in Gallery > Jukebox and are available after starting Mission 2.
  • Live Action Cutscenes. This option changes the in-game cutscenes to behind-the-scenes footage via Options > Cutscene Customization. Available after starting Mission 2.
  • Cavaliere R for Dante
    • “A version of the Cavaliere weapon Dante acquires, which has been customized by Nico for Dante's use. Its instantaneous output has been increased, and its appearance matches Dante's thematic color. Can be used in-game after acquiring the Cavaliere.”
  • Alternate hero colors and alternate heroine colors (For Steam, or if the game is downloaded for Xbox One or PlayStation 4).
  • Devil May Cry 5 wallpaper (For Steam only)
  • Devil May Cry 5 theme (For PlayStation 4. Only comes if the game is downloaded).
  • Buster Arm Early Access (For Xbox One. Only comes if the game is downloaded).

Advice: If you have an extra 10 bucks to spare, I highly recommend buying this one instead of the Standard Edition. The Deluxe Edition upgrades give a more enjoyable experience. Also, if you are a fan of Mega Man as well, this is definitely a sweet deal for you.

3. E-Capcom Limited Edition (Japan)

Price: 12,800 Yen (Tax Included. ~$113.40)

What it comes with:

  • The game itself (Xbox One or PlayStation 4).
  • A Devil May Cry 5 “work shirt.”
  • 3 game case replacement jackets that were each designed by Mori Musume, Daigo Ikeno, and Chika Sanada.

Advice: Since this edition is pretty pricey, only buy this if you are a huge fan who wants to play pretend as someone who works for Devil May Cry. You could also have a prettier game case with this edition. If you are uninterested in doing either, just get the Standard or Deluxe Edition.

4. E-Capcom Ultra Limited Edition (Japan)

Price: 750,000 Yen (Nero ver., ~$6,646.88)

900,000 Yen (Dante ver., ~$7,976.25)

600,000 Yen (V ver., ~$5,317.50)

What it comes with:

  • The game itself (Xbox One or PlayStation 4).
  • A model replica of the chosen version/character’s jacket.
  • 3 game case replacement jackets that were each designed by Mori Musume, Daigo Ikeno, and Chika Sanada.

Advice: You had to contact E-Capcom directly to reserve an order for this edition (Reservation period ran from Monday, October 22, 2018 to Monday, November 19, 2018 until 10 AM JST). You are going to have to find other ways to purchase this edition since the reservation period is over.

If you are a super fan, a cosplayer, or simply have a TON of money to spare, then definitely buy this one. If you are clearly on a budget, just get the Standard or Deluxe Edition.
