Devil May Cry: Peak of Combat, the demons hunt begins today!

Devil May Cry Peak of Combat release

A brand-new game derived from one of the greatest legendary licenses ever created lands today, offering players a nostalgic journey into the past. Devil May Cry: Peak of Combat joins a growing list of PC and console games ported to Android and iOS, allowing players to enjoy the adrenaline and action of this hack-and-slash game on their mobile. Sharpen your weapons before setting off on the hunt for demons, and find out everything you need to know about the release of Devil May Cry: Peak of Combat in the rest of this news item.

The long-awaited Devil May Cry: Peak of Combat is released today!

Welcome the New Year in style: Devil May Cry: Peak of Combat enters the world of mobile gaming as a free-to-play game. Devil May Cry: Peak of Combat will be released on January 10, 2023. Chinese company NebulaJoy has joined forces with Capcom to bring a thrilling action-adventure experience to a brand-new platform.

The mobile version's story is expected to have a different plot, which is great news for players new to the franchise. However, fans of previous installments needn't worry, as the plot won't stray too far from the established story. It has already been revealed that the story will fill the gap between Devil May Cry 1 and 3. As you journey through the story mode and the game itself, you can also expect to meet some familiar faces along the way.

Devil May Cry Peak of Combat characters

Dante, Lady, Vergil and Nero will be among the iconic DMC characters on release. However, to play the mysterious V, who appeared in Devil May Cry 5, we'll have to wait for the next update.

With DMC: Peak of Combat, NebulaJoy hopes to (re)seduce the gaming community

The first release of Devil May Cry: Peak of Combat was, to say the least, not unanimously acclaimed. Launched in 2021 in China, the game was quickly snubbed by the gaming community, who lamented its cruel lack of content. But that didn't stop the Chinese company from generating more than $7 million in revenues, thanks to this mobile adaptation of the famous license.

In 2024, get ready for a much more content-rich game that's sure to keep you on your toes and give you maximum adrenaline. This collaboration between NebulaJoy and CAPCOM promises nothing less than a true DMC on mobile. The only downside is that, due to the technical constraints inherent in the mobile medium, the controls (and therefore the gameplay) have been greatly simplified, in order to offer a pleasant touch-screen experience.

The result is Devil May Cry: Peak of Combat 2.0, with its share of demon battles, weapons and characters, each more sinister than the last.

Devil May Cry on mobile, the promise of a nervous and intense game

Devil May Cry: Peak of Combat faithfully preserves the essence of the franchise, with breathtaking combos, intense close-quarters combat and challenges, as well as skills inherited from previous games. Expect familiar moves, including melee, aerial and dodge attacks, as you engage in intense combat against the game's demons. In this DMC, to survive, you'll have no choice but to learn how to dodge devastating attacks, but also to develop your strategic mind to choose the right weapons, team composition and skills.

While certain aspects, such as the number of weapons and styles, have been modified, most of the fundamental elements have remained intact. In fact, fans of the license are sure to appreciate the nervous combat rendering, almost identical to that of the first installments, made possible by motion-capture technology. More generally, the graphics of DMC: Peak of Combat will appeal to the most demanding gamers.

As far as weapons are concerned, in Devil May Cry: Peak of Combat, weapon changes are replaced by character switching, allowing you to deploy three characters in a team. You can even compose a team with the same character, available in three different versions.

PVP and demon-hunting among friends

In addition to its story mode, Devil May Cry: Peak of Combat gives you the chance to engage in multiplayer combat, thanks to several co-op modes (scripted missions, raids and even customized games). Once again, this is nothing new, since co-op mode is one of the elements that have contributed to the license's success. The same applies to PVP mode. In DMC on mobile, unleash your bestial side and take on other beast hunters in friendly matches or tournaments.

Devil May Cry: Peak of Combat, hunt monsters in a gacha version

In Devil May Cry: Peak of Combat, tracking down demons won't necessarily be free, as the game seems to be going down the microtransaction route. Expect to heat up your credit card and spend some money, as it has been revealed that the game features gacha elements, much like games such as Genshin Impact. Unlocking weapons or new characters will, in some cases, require you to reach for your wallet.

A lighter gameplay version of the games in the legendary license, Devil May Cry: Peak of Combat nonetheless has enough to keep any gamer on their toes, especially those with a penchant for hack-and-slash games and hemoglobin. This new installment is available in English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish, guaranteeing its accessibility to a broad player base. However, some players who took part in the test phase encountered difficulties due to the game's rough translation. We hope these problems will be resolved for the global release!
