A Devil May Cry stage play, titled The Live Hacker, is coming exclusively to Japan next Spring.
Running for a total of thirteen shows between the 1st and the 10th March 2019 at Tokyo’s Zepp DiverCity, The Live Hacker will feature a blend of stylish action and musical performances, in an effort to capture the essence of the original series of games.
