Capcom has just announced a new entry in the Devil May Cry franchise. While this is the fifth game in the series, the title is simply listed as DmC for the time being. With the abandonment of numbered installments and a whole new look, perhaps we’re looking at a reboot of the series. Overall it looks much grittier and has a western atmosphere to it. This comes as no surprise, considering that the game is developed by Ninja Theory, the team behind Sony’s Heavenly Blade. The game is scheduled to be released on both the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. No gameplay videos have been released yet, but screenshots and an excerpt from Capcom’s press release are included after the jump.

Capcom’s secret project with CyberConnect2 has just been revealed. Asura’s Wrath is a new action game that follows Asura, a fallen deity. From the looks of the trailer, the game will include dynamic cutscenes with button input commands. This seems to be a continuing trend with Capcom games. So far, the scale of the action in this game looks amazing and will keep players’ adrenaline pumped throughout gameplay. It’s great to see a new IP from Capcom, especially in a time full of sequels. Screenshots and more after the jump.
