Devil May Cry 5 Deluxe Edition vs Standard
Devil May Cry 5 is the long-awaited return of the franchise, moving on from the 2013 spin off DmC: Devil May Cry. This time around players will take the role of Nero, Dante, and a brand new character named V. There are two different version of Devil May Cry 5, and you might be wondering which one is best to pick up. Here’s everything you need to know about the Devil May Cry 5 Deluxe Edition vs standard, and which you should get.
Devil May Cry 5, like any standard video game these days, will cost $59.99. There actually isn’t a huge price difference between the standard version and the Deluxe Edition, as the latter only costs $10 extra. First off let’s cover what that extra $10 gets you, so here are the contents of the Deluxe Edition.
Deluxe Edition Contents
- Four Alternate Devil Breakers for Nero (Mega Buster, Pasta Breaker, Sweet Surrender, Gerbera GP-01)
- Variant Weapon for Dante (Cavalier R)
- Alternate Style Rank Announcers
- Alternate Title Screen Announcers
- Behind-the-Scenes Pre-Viz Live Action Cutscenes
- Battle Music Pack Trios for DMC 1, 2, 3, and 4
Obviously, all of these additions are digital-only and most of them tie directly into the gameplay of Devil May Cry 5 itself. Most of the alternate devil breakers are simply reskins of ones already in the game, with some alternate functions, but the Mega Buster is a fun little nod to Mega Man that also has good functionality.
The best addition of the bunch is the battle music packs, which let you change the battle music for each of the game’s characters. If you’re a Devil May Cry fan, it’s a great little option to change the music to Never Surrender from DMC 4 or Public Enemy from DMC 1.
Which Should You Get?
What it really boils down to is if you’re a big fan of Devil May Cry 5 and the series or not. If you are, the extra $10 is a small price to pay for some fun bonus content that pays homage to the franchise. If you aren’t a Devil May Cry fan, on the other hand, there’s not a whole lot to entice you, as you won’t be missing out on anything essential to the core experience.
If any of these things sound interesting to you, the extra price is pretty low, but don’t feel bad skipping out and just getting the standard edition of Devil May Cry 6.
