You may not know the name Hideaki Itsuno, but I bet you know his games. He's served as a director of the Power Stone games, Dragon's Dogma, and the Devil May Cry games (save for the original). You want fast, quirky, stylish action? Itsuno's one of the best for it. So perhaps it's little surprise that when Itsuno announced his plans to reveal a new game in 2017, fans got excited:
Happy New Year! I exert myself in order to announce a new game this year. Thank you.December 31, 2016
It seems that a large portion of Itsuno's followers are keen to see Devil May Cry 5, as evidenced by the following tweets:

@tomqe Pretty much what everyone else is saying, Devil May Cry 5 please.December 31, 2016
Others are holding out for Dragon's Dogma 2 or a new Rival Schools game. But I think whatever this mystery project ends up being, we can expect some over-the-top action and hopefully some distinctly weird humor.
Seen something newsworthy? Tell us!
