Devil May Cry 5, also honored with an Award for Excellence, is the latest title in the series and the first mainline entry to be released in 10 years. Utilizing Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine, the game boasts the series’ most finely-detailed visuals, beautifully rendering the distinctive characters and high-speed, stylish action the games are known for, resulting in high praise and shipments in excess of 2.5 million units* worldwide. *As of June 30, 2019

In the Future Division, where players vote to select the upcoming titles they most look forward to, Project Resistance received an award. This title was very popular among show attendees, with tickets for the game demo running out moments after doors to the show were opened.
