Devil May Cry 5 Director Doesn’t Want You Posting Spoilers, So You Shouldn’t

Devil May Cry 5 Director Hideaki Itsuno doesn't want fans to post spoilers for his upcoming game so all fans can play it as intended.

There is hardly anything worse for fans of any series to have major plot points spoiled. However, few realize the effects that seeing spoilers pre-release have on content creators and game developers. As Devil May Cry 5 rounds the corner into its release date, famed Capcom Director Hideaki Itsuno is asking that everyone be respectful to the developers and longtime fans. This means letting DMC5 players getting to experience the game naturally, entirely free of spoilers.

Late last night, Devil May Cry 5 Director Hideaki Itsuno Tweeted out a message, effectively asking players to not leak and for fans of the series not to indulge in leaks:

His rationale is simple and resonates. The developers over at Capcom have been crafting the game “for many years” and he wants to make sure that all gamers are able to really experience the game as it was meant to be. And honestly, that appeal makes sense — when you’ve spent years of your life working on something for a dedicated fanbase, nothing is worse than having the magic of storytelling ruined by some trolls on the internet.

Itsuno-san is more than happy to give a helpful tip — avoid the internet entirely:

However, if you are looking for some more helpful tips, we wrote up a quick guide on how to avoid spoilers ahead of the Kingdom Hearts III launch for Facebook, Reddit, Twitter, and other social media spots. Just simply change some keywords around, and you can keep yourself free of spoilers ahead of the release.

Of course, closing up on the Devil May Cry 5 launch we have plenty of spoiler-free information that you can indulge in. Take, for example, the brand new trailer that recaps the story so far in the Devil May Cry series. Otherwise, there are some really cool official and unofficial projects, whether we are talking the awesome Son of Sparda coat (retailing for a whopping $525) or the oddly terrific crossover figures of Dante and Hideo Kojima that for some reason exist.

Devil May Cry 5 launches on March 8 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One — if you already have it pre-ordered, make sure to heed Itsuno-san’s advice and avoid posting spoilers. If you haven’t pre-ordered the game, you can do that via Amazon if you are so inclined.
