Regardless of microtransactions, I am nonetheless eager for Satan Might Cry 5

By itself, that will be robust sufficient to justify that conclusion. However in Satan Might Cry 5’s case, there may be additionally precedent on the contrary from a extra particular counterexample. Satan Might Cry four Particular Version already had microtransactions that have been handled as an afterthought, and only a few folks even acknowledged that.
