In this retelling of Dante's origin story which is set against a contemporary backdrop, DmC Devil May Cry™ retains the stylish action, fluid combat and self-assured protagonist that have defined the iconic series but inject a more brutal and visceral edge.
The Dante of DmC is a young man who has no respect for authority or indeed society in general. Dante knows that he is not human, but also that he is not like the demons that have tormented him throughout his life. Caught between worlds, he feels like an outcast. Thanks to his twin brother Vergil, leader of the anti-establishment group called “The Order”, Dante is now discovering and coming to terms with what it means to be the child of a demon and an angel. This split personality has a real impact on gameplay with Dante being able to call upon angel and demon abilities at will, transforming his Rebellion sword on the fly to dramatically affect both combat and movement.
For DmC Capcom has teamed up with UK development studio, Ninja Theory, renown for delivering action titles with compelling characters and narrative coupled with high production values. The combination of Ninja Theory’s expertise and Capcom’s unrivalled heritage in producing combat focused action titles will ensure that this latest addition to the over 11-million selling series will remain true to the Devil May Cry DNA so cherished by the fans, while bringing a new level of cinematic quality to the title.
The world of Limbo is a living and breathing entity, out to kill Dante. The world will transform in real-time and try to block off and even kill our hero. Our protagonist will have to master demonic powers to shape Limbo the way he sees fit, while perfecting his angelic skills to traverse this hazardous, twisted world.
Who is Dante?:
Explore a retelling of Dante’s origin story in a gripping narrative featuring familiar faces from the series alongside all new characters, including Vergil, Dante’s twin brother.
The intense and iconic sword and gun based combat returns with the addition of new Angel and Demon weapons and abilities, all designed to dispatch the demonic spawn back to hell with style and panache. Weapons include:
Rebellion: Dante’s trusted sword, given by his father Sparda, provides a great mix of combos and attacks, great for sending enemies skyward.
Ebony & Ivory: These guns are good for keeping enemies at bay, maintaining combos and juggling enemies in the air.
Arbiter: a demonic axe that can deliver massive blows and break through enemy shields.
Osiris: an angelic scythe with fast attacks and great for crowd control.
Eryx: powerful demonic gauntlets that pack enough punch to parry even the strongest attacks and juggle the heaviest enemies.
Retaining the Devil May Cry DNA:
Capcom staff, including team members from previous Devil May Cry titles, have been assigned to the project from the outset to ensure DmC is a true addition to the Devil May Cry franchise.
Unrivalled production values:
Ninja Theory will take advantage of the latest performance capture technology to deliver a level of character design, story-telling and cinematics that perfectly complements DmC’s high-octane combat.
Finally a great DMC game.SzyMan1993 | Nov. 22, 2013 | See all SzyMan1993's reviews »
After playing Devil May Cry 4 i was a little dissapointed, due to the change of the main hero. It's true you play later as Dante, but it's just a replay of the stages visited by Nero (with the same bosses). This game shows the begging of our beloved hero. Maybe the story isn't so amazing, but it balances well with the action offered during playtime. Totaly a must have for anyone who heard about Devil May Cry
Devil's got softer?bauwan | Nov. 2, 2013 | See all bauwan's reviews »
It's hard to decide what to think about this game. First of all, after playing it, I totally didn't mind new Dante's look, I even liked it. It has the typical feel for DMC series, it's really intense, throwing hordes of enemies in your face, but... it's just too easy. My first playthrough on "Hard" was piece of cake. It's not like Devil May Cry 3, where normal difficulty was really challenging. But apart of that, it's still a great game with good graphics (I loved the style) and totally brilliant soundtrack. Must play for everyone who liked any previous DMC or just like to slash hordes of ugly monsters.
Fresh rework of the DMC seriesIamLincoln | Oct. 28, 2013 | See all IamLincoln's reviews »
I love how they combined the best of the DMC series into a fresh, energetic hack n' slash. Combat is really smooth and the story captures your interest quite fast. Only thing that kinda bugged me was that they have a new weapon switch system, and as a DMC veteran it was hard for me to adjust.

Do not listen to the haters! This game deserve your attention, the combat system is really rewarding, story is above average et the soundtrack kicks butts! If you liked the other games in the serie you feel right at home! Ok Dante's hair are not white, but really does it matter? If it does you should consider another form of entertainement.

DmC Devil May Cry is the newest installment in the DMC series and also a reboot. This game is easily one of the best games I've ever played with it's beautifully stylish gameplay (you could say it the gameplay is the true graphical quality of the game), actually engaging and intense story (so rare for games like this!) and great sounds. The gameplay is fast and fluid, replacing the somewhat sluggish combat of previous games. The story is amazing, which is something completely unexpected from a game like this. As a hackn'slash game story is one of the least important aspects in the genre but this game defies expectations. It has some genuinely intense and dark moment unlike in any other game I've seen. Not explosions and gore but things like slight spoiler shooting a baby. The voice acting is great and Dante is a pretty interesting, cool and badass character. And he isn't an stereotype dancing emo like the internet haters keep saying, he's more of a funny psycho along with his brother Vergil. To put it short, if you like hackn'slashes get it. If you don't, get it anyway (I personally hate games like this and I think this is one of the best games I've ever played, so yeah.). If you like the old DMC games then get it too to see a a wonderful exapmle of a series evolution. If you LOVED the old DMC games then.... don't get it. This game (like the wildly hated FFXIII) are despised by fans of the old games for a reason: it's completely different. They're both fantastic games but so different from the old ones that it's bound to alienate the fans. It's like making making a Harry Potter movie and branding it as a Star Wars sequel. Harry Potter is great, Star Wars is great but making one a sequel of the other is so alienating and game changing that it's bound to be deeply hated by some and for very good reason. But either way this is a fantastic game that most, if not all, should enjoy.
