Capcom is a Japanese developer and publisher of games known for making multi-million dollar franchises like Mega Man, Darkstalkers, Onimusha, Resident Evil, Street Fighter, and of course, the Devil May Cry series.

Development of Devil May CryEdit

After the completion of Resident Evil 2 in 1998, Hideki Kamiya began directing the next Resident Evil game with the team named "Team Little Devil". The team went to Spain to research castles and medieval structures as a basis for the game's environment. However, the survival horror formula in Resident Evil was radically changed during the early developmental stages: The main character, "Tony", was supposed to be a man made invincible by biotechnology, and the focus of combat was to be fast and stylish. Instead of halting production on game, the team began making a new series based on modern horror with medieval, magical, and ancient weapons with demons as enemies. This series project was launched as Devil May Cry, and it became a success.

Game referencesEdit

Capcom is known to insert references or cameos of other franchises into the Devil May Cry series, such as characters appearing in other games or cross-over games; movesets being copied between franchises; and logos, quotes, or objects being referenced into and from Devil May Cry.
