If ever a game series could be brazen enough to take to the stage in a musical action extravaganza, you’d be pretty sure Capcom’s Devil May Cry would be high up on that list.
From March 1, 2019 in Japan, the stylish hack n’ slash series does indeed become a live stage play entitled Devil May Cry: The Live Hacker and runs until March 10.
The show promises to include hi-octane stylish action and a live band performance. Hopefully, some interaction between the two things too please a la Devil May Cry 3’s guitar-slinging. Who wouldn’t want to see this done live?
The 13 performances are directed by Jun Yuriko, who previously masterminded the 2015 Resident Evil stage play (aka Biohazard: The Stage).
The cast will include Dante and Lady, with Ryoma Baba playing the white-haired demon slayer.
Tickets (on sale here) are up for a not unreasonable 9,800 yen for premium and 7,800 yen general admission. Registration for the limited lottery is set to begin November 10 at 10:00am JST through November 25 at 11:59pm JST. The results for ticket winners will be announced on November 29 after 1:00pm JST. So if you happen to be heading to Japan next year and want something interesting to do, there’s something.
Of course, if you’d prefer something a bit more homely for your Devil May Cry fix, Devil May Cry 5 is releasing on PS4, Xbox One, and PC during that run on March 8, 2019.
