Devil May Cry: The Live Hacker is an upcoming musical stage play adaptation of the famous Capcom video game series.
Musical theatre is very much alive in Japan, which has resulted in several prominent anime and video game series receiving their own live-action stage shows, with the likes of Bleach, Hunter x Hunter, Naruto, Prince of Tennis, Golden Axe, Persona 4, Resident Evil, and Phoenix Wright receiving their own theatrical adaptations.
The next prominent video game franchise to be turned into a stage play is Devil May Cry, which will likely translate into a production that is filled with gunplay and swordplay, similar to how the Bleach and Resident Evil musicals were made.
The cast for Devil May Cry: The Live Hacker currently consists of Baba Ryoma as Dante, Maejima Ami as Ellis, Yuki Nakayama as Henry, Tomoya Yamaguchi as Owen, Takumi Sueno as Luke, and Jun Shirota as Muro.
There will also be characters named Lady, Liam, and Noah in Devil May Cry: The Live Hacker, but they have yet to be cast.
We don't know anything about the story of Devil May Cry: The Live Hacker, but we do know that it will be an action and musical that will be accompanied by a live band.
Devil May Cry: The Live Hacker will be released shortly before Devil May Cry V, which is due to come out on March 8th for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. This means that the play likely won't adapt any elements from the upcoming game, as they would technically be spoilers.
The contempt shown by most of the fanbase for DmC: Devil May Cry means that we will likely be seeing the story of one of the earlier Devil May Cry titles adapted for the stage, or a whole new story using the familiar characters from the pre-DmC games.
Devil May Cry: The Live Hacker is currently scheduled to run for a series of shows starting on March 1st and concluding on March 10th in the Zepp DiverCity music call in Tokyo.
