Devil May Cry 5 will allow players to spend real money to upgrade their characters.
The news came via a build of the game being shown at Tokyo Game Show, in which orbs could be bought at Divinity Statues in-game to hurry up progression – a system that had previously appeared in Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition, though given the backlash that similar systems have faced it’s still a surprise to see it return.
Gamespot spoke to Devil May Cry 5 director Hideaki Itsuno about the inclusion of microtransactions in the game. “With giving people the ability to purchase Red Orbs, it’s something we want to give people as an option,” he said. “If they want to save time and just want to get all the stuff at once, those people can do that. But on the other hand I don’t feel you have to get all the moves. You should be able to play it the way you want to play it.”
