Matt Walker, the producer of Devil May Cry 5
, gave us a breakdown of the four Devil Breakers that come with the Deluxe Edition of the game. These weapons compliment the action-packed gameplay and are intended to be "fun extras that the hardcore fans would appreciate".
First up, we have the Gerbera GP-01. This variant has one additional move compared to its standard counterpart. When the control stick is neutral, Nero will perform 'Jocky' and launch upward (if he's on the ground) or downward (if he's in the air). Furthermore, the color palette pays homage to its designer, Shoji Kawamori, famous for his works on Macross Valkyrie and Gundam GP01. In contrast, the standard Gerbera allows Nero to reflect certain projectiles.
Next up is the Sweet Surrender. Unlike other Devil Breakers, this is more of a passive one and helps regenerate health. As long as it is equipped, Nero will slowly but surely recover health over time. However, if you really need healing, you can use its Break Age ability to recover a bigger portion of health.
The Pasta Breaker was built by Nico from spare parts and kitchen utensils. As a result, it was never intended to be used in combat and therefore deals a very small amount of damage. However, it is the only weapon that, when used, cycles to the next weapon.
The Cavaliere R has been painted and tuned by Nico specifically for Dante. It is just another variant of the standard Cavaliere. The type-R variant comes with one extra move but Dante is more prone to being knocked out of his attacks and combos.
Lastly, we have the Mega Buster. It's from Mega Man 11
and it goes pew, pew, pew. What else did you expect? Take a look at the trailer below.
