The fifth installment of the highly-acclaimed Devil May Cry series went live on March 8 - and popular Twitch streamer Chance ‘Sodapoppin’ Morris made sure to dive into the game.

[WARNING: Possible spoilers ahead.]

Sodapoppin frequently plays the newest games on release and is never shy about sharing his opinion, as evidenced by him giving up on Kingdom Hearts 3 shortly after booting up the title.

He was in the midst of a broadcast for DMC 5 when he came across main character Dante’s flashy impression of late singer-songwriter Michael Jackson, leading to a hilarious bout of surprise and bewilderment.

The streamer was clearly taken off guard as Dante began to randomly bust a move, after being gifted the Faust Hat weapon from newbie character Nico - complete with Jackson-esque background music and moonwalking.

“What?” Sodapoppin asked incredulously, raising his hands above his head in shock. “I’m being trolled.”

Sodapoppin’s chat appeared to echo his sentiment, spamming rows of question marks and pogchamps out of confusion - with one user even asking, “WTF is this game?”

This wouldn’t be the first time Capcom has paid tribute to Jackson as of late, either; the company likewise gave Street Fighter V newcomer ‘G’ a few of Jackson’s dance moves in his attack animations, driving home his seemingly ‘American’ spirit.

Devil May Cry 5 is already receiving rave reviews, scoring a 9.5/10 on IGN and a 9/10 on Gamespot thanks to its ‘SSS stylish’ gameplay and flashy combo system.
