Along with revealing a new trailer and details on the Deluxe Edition of Devil May Cry 5, Capcom also announced that the action game would be mixing in with one of the publisher’s other most iconic franchises.

Yes, Mega Man will be crossing over with Devil May Cry 5 and will allow you to wield the character’s classic Mega Buster. This item was announced to come included with the Deluxe Edition of DMC5 and in addition, Capcom released a new trailer showing off the item in action.

This video shows Nero using the Mega Buster in the place of one of his usual Devil Breakers. Much like you’d expect, you can run around the levels with the Mega Buster equipped and blast away at foes left and right. I also don’t know if they just show this for the purposes of this trailer, but Nero also teleports into levels and dies in the same way that Mega Man does as well. Hopefully, those animations are included in the final game.

The trailer showing the Mega Buster in action is attached below. It’s pretty goofy, but I also love it. What a great way to mix both of these properties together.

Devil May Cry 5 will launch on March 8, 2019, for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
