Devil May Cry 5 has already overtaken DmC in sales

Since launching on 8th March, Devil May Cry 5 has impressed fans and critics alike: so much so, in fact, that the title has sold over two million units.

Interestingly, Dante - old man Dante, it looks like - turns up on his motorbike, which he rips in half and uses as a weapon. Cool!
