Following a series of closed beta tests, the Devil May Cry: Peak of Combat release kicked off globally on January 10, 2024. Now offering a streamlined yet authentic Devil May Cry experience on the mobile platform.
Now, players across the globe can immerse themselves in the heart-pounding world of Dante. It’s where relentless combos and stylish moves take center stage, all while facing off against demons. It’s Capcom’s way of bringing the well-known hack-and-slash series to our phones.
As an extra treat, the game comes with a fresh promotional track titled “Fire Inside,” by the composer Casey Edwards. If you’re a fan of Edwards’ “Bury the Light” and “Devil Trigger,” you’re in for an experience that perfectly complements the intense demon-hunting vibes of Devil May Cry: Peak of Combat.
So What’s The Fuss About?
In Devil May Cry: Peak of Combat, the gameplay mirrors the intense action of its PC and console counterparts. You’ll face off against hordes of demons, with an emphasis on the stylish combat that defines the series. The stylish rank takes center stage, rewarding you with diverse combat skills.
Defeating enemies with different moves and weapons boosts style points, but using the same move repeatedly decreases your ranking until you switch things up. Dodging and taunting add flair and increase the stylish ranking for those who want to showcase their demon-slaying finesse.
However, adapting to the mobile platform comes with some tweaks. Characters are limited to four weapons, and certain features present in the PC and console versions, like Automatic Mode, are simplified or missing.
Dante’s styles are condensed to Trickster and Royalguard, incorporating Swordmaster and Gunslinger moves into his standard repertoire. Additionally, Nero’s Devil Trigger form is absent in his standard costume.
Some folks are giving it props for trying to squeeze the Devil May Cry vibe into a mobile game, while others are saying it’s not quite hitting the mark. The graphics and controls are getting a fair share of criticism, making some players a bit skeptical.
