Numerous games have offered behind-the-scenes images that show how the cut scenes came about. But, what if you could play the whole game that way? Capcom, at least, is willing to give it a try. When Devil May Cry 5 is released on March 8, the Deluxe Edition will include an option to view the live action sequences used to visualize the scenes before the CG comes into play. In essence, it’s like watching a low-cost sweded version of Devil May Cry: action figures, cardboard trucks and simple costumes complete the usual digital magic.
I probably would not want to buy the DMC5 Deluxe Edition just for this. However, it’s a good look at the early stages of creating video game scenes, and it could hurt if you’re a budding filmmaker. It’s also a pretty smart way to see moving shots that will not interrupt your game as much as a separate video.
