Devil May Cry 5 is receiving almost universal acclaim by critics and fans alike, just like Resident Evil 2 earlier this year. If you’re one of the gamers currently enjoying the return of the franchise, you’ll be glad to learn that the game is receiving a prequel in the form of a manga starring the mysterious V.
Drawn by Tomio Ogata, the manga is titled, Devil May Cry 5: Visions of V. According to Comic Natalie, the story will focus on V’s origins, his encounters with demons, and a plot from his unique perspective. It’s essentially a prequel to the events that take place in Devil May Cry 5.
The first chapter of the manga will launch on 27 April 2019 on LINE Manga, with a prologue chapter 0 currently already available on the site. A new chapter will be published on each subsequent Saturday.
Unfortunately for fans of Devil May Cry 5 and V, LINE Manga can only be accessed in Japan for now. No details on an international release of any kind have been announced thus far.
