During a press conference in Seoul, Devil May Cry 5 director Hideaki Itsuno answered a few questions about the upcoming title. He revealed the game's expected length and the possibility of additional characters later down the line.

Hideaki Itsuno stated that according to internal play testing, the game should clock in at about 15 hours. Of course for achievement hunters we can probably expect a much longer effort to get 100% — according to our community, finishing the achievement list in Devil May Cry 4 will take 80-100 hours. In terms of a standard story run though, this fifth entry may be the longest in the core series so far.

Additionally the director hinted that another playable protagonist could be added if there was enough demand from players. There are already three playable protagonists in the game — series regulars Nero and Dante, as well as the mysterious newcomer known as V.

There's a second demo on the way too, as we previously reported. This one will not be Xbox exclusive, and will arrive on February 7th.

Devil May Cry 5 releases on March 8th 2019.

We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the Devil May Cry 5 achievements.
