Devil May Cry 5 has been shown running on the upcoming portable Steam Deck. The footage has been released by Capcom and shows Nero, Dante, and Vergil battling away in Devil May Cry 5. The gameplay does look very smooth on Steam Deck. The game appears to run very smoothly on Steam Deck with no noticeable drop in performance compared to the regular platform releases on PC and consoles. You can watch the approximately minute long video below.
Recently Valve delayed shipping of Steam Deck due to supply chain issues. Valve has stated it will be readjusting reservation dates due to the shipping delay. Of course, Valve will do everything it can to get the Steam Deck shipped in February, but that will be dependant on the global situation. If you have reserved one your place in line will not change, and you can check your order availability timeline on the Steam Deck store page.
The Steam Deck has a 7″ touchscreen for typing and swiping through the Steam UI, a pair of trackads, analogue triggers, grip buttons, two “best in class” thumbsticks and a gyro for motion controls. For storage you can choose between 64GB eMMC, 256GB NVMe SSD, or 512GB NVMe SSD, and expand that with a microSD card. The 40 watt-hour battery should provide “several hours” of playtime, but less intensive games of web browsing should increase the battery life to up to eight hours.
In our review for Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition review, Stefan wrote: “DMC5 Special Edition for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S builds on the excellence of the original release. It’s not the most essential purchase, since you will soon be able to buy Vergil as DLC for the original release, but with some new game modes like Legendary Dark Knight difficulty and the new graphical options making the game smoother/prettier than ever before, it’s sure to be tempting for fans of the series. Our original review score follows.”
