Devil May Cry 5 was a phenomenal hit from Capcom that was an incredible experience for newcomers to the series, as well as a perfect feeling of “coming home” for long-time fans. Now that amazing experience is going even further, because a new board game has been revealed by Steamforged Games, and it promises a bloody good time!
According to the team that has brought us breathtaking gaming adaptations such as the Dark Souls tapletop experience, “Devil May Cry: The Bloody Palace is an easy to learn, fast-paced, and dynamic experience where style counts for everything. Take control of one of Devil May Cry’s iconic demon hunters, Dante, Nero, Trish, or even the newest addition to the series, the mysterious V. Players will be trying to outscore each other by building the most impressive attack combos and achieving the highest style rank. Featuring all of the adrenaline-fueled intensity that fans new and old will remember, we couldn’t be more thrilled for players around the world to experience our next video game adaptation for the tabletop!”
“As a long-time fan of Devil May Cry and given my background, I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the team working on this board game.” Says Mat Hart, Steamforged Games’ Creative Director. “From the beautiful sculpts through to the subtle yet dramatic depth of gameplay, we’ve captured the very theme and essence of all that is awesome about Devil May Cry.”
“We are delighted to be working with the folk at Steamforged Games to bring the demons of Devil May Cry to life on players tabletops” commented Brian Ayers, Senior Brand Manager, Capcom. “Following the recent success of the latest title in the series Devil May Cry 5, we believe that the brand is stronger than ever and can’t wait to see players enjoyment on playing the upcoming board game release next year.”
The exciting new board game experience is expected to go live on Kickstarter, alongside a rulebok, here soon though an exact date hasn’t been given at this time.
