DMC 5 Demo Walkthrough

If you have trouble finding the next destination, press L3 to point the camera to your objective.

A large amount of Red Orbs can be obtained in the alley on the right

After the first battle with enemies, you can proceed to the path on the right, past the obtainable Punch Line, instead of left where the tentacles are, to find a demon that carries a large amount of Red Orbs. You will need to take it down fast as it will run away after being attacked for a certain period of time.

You might miss the Phone Booth before the Boss Battle

DMC 5 Demo Walkthrough

After proceeding through the blocked path, you will find the Phone Booth that lets you arrange your equipment in battle. It is possible to skip this and go straight to the boss fight but it is best to make a short stop and prepare for the battle ahead.

Incandescent Colossus Goliath Boss Guide

Goliath Boss Strategy Guide

Goliath is encountered at the end of the demo. Though the boss is not that fast, it hits very hard and has a variety of attacks that you need to watch out for. A good strategy is to try to get behind it and attack to avoid its swings.

Many of Goliath’s close-range attacks can be dodged, especially if you go airborne. Gerbera is a good Devil Breaker to use in the fight as it allows you to quickly move out of harm’s way more reliably than Nero’s normal dodge.

Green Orbs can be found scattered in the third area of the boss fight to help you get through if you are getting hit too often.
