No other details are confirmed at this time so stay tuned for updates.
While I personally didn’t play many Devil May Cry games, I still think it will be interesting to see it as a part of the “bootleg multiverse.” I commend Shanker on his work on Castlevania since it turned out to be a fantastic animated series based on the franchise. It will also be interesting to see since both franchises have very similar settings so I think it may work out depending on how it will be handled.
