An overview of Limbo City.

Limbo City is the main setting of DmC: Devil May Cry. It is a city under the control of demons with an ignorant, brainwashed human population.

Description[]

Limbo City, like the rest of the world, is controlled by Mundus and his demon armies. They constantly observe the populace through demonic CCTV cameras, and seek to keep humanity complacent and weak. It is a well-developed city filled with skyscrapers and burroughs, and includes the Funland amusement park on Bellview Pier. Sites of interest include the Silver Sacks Tower, the Raptor News Tower, the Virility factory, St. Agares's Church, Devil's Dalliance, and Paradise.

In early trailers, Dante is apprehended and taken to the Limbo City Police Department and is later transferred to the mental hospital, where he is kept chained to the wall and given the designation of 64432B. However, these locations are not seen or even referenced in the finished game.

Raptor News Tower[]

Raptor News Tower is a tall One Times Square-esque skyscraper and the second tallest building in all of Limbo City and it is built, owned and operated by the Raptor News Corporation. It is where they monitor and spy on the planet's entire human populace through their network of satellites, routers and CCTV cameras.

Silver Sacks Tower[]

Silver Sacks Tower is the city's tallest skycraper with 2 angel-like wing features situated at the center of Limbo City and the world's most powerful investment bank. It is the headquarters of its namesake banking company called "Silver Sacks Investors" and they are both controlled by a wealthy investment banker named Kyle Ryder who is the demon king Mundus in his human disguise. This is also where the Hell Gate is located within his corporate office on the highest level of the building.

St. Agares' Church[]

St. Agares' Church (also known as Saint Agares' Church) is Limbo City's main cathedral used mainly in the worship of "God".

St. Lamia's Orphanage[]

St. Lamia's Orphanage is the demon-run orphanage where Sparda left his seven-year-old son Dante after Mundus attacked their mansion. At age 8, Dante killed the orphanage's head nurse, implied to be a demon who preyed on children, and escaped.[citation needed]

Virility Factory[]

The Virility Factory is the factory that produces, manufactures, and merchandises Virility, advertised as planet Earth's "#1" soft drink, which is derived from the secretions of "the Succubus", who lurks within a cave hidden beneath the factory.

4 Floors of Fun.png

In Dante Alighieri's The Divine Comedy, Limbo is the first circle of Hell that Dante and Virgil enter. Limbo is portrayed as being an area where virtuous pagans reside in. Although the virtuous pagans in Limbo are shown to be good-natured individuals compared to the heretics of the sixth circle of Hell, their lack of Christian faith prevented them from entering Paradiso.

The pier and amusement park is modeled after the Coney Island in New York City, while the city as a whole resembles New York City.

Lamia is a demon in Greek mythology who preys on children, as referenced by head nurse at St. Lamia's Orphanage.

Agares is a Duke of Hell in Christian mythology.

The "4 Floors of Fun" poster at the "Funland" carnival at Bellview Pier (pictured), which depicts a woman with a skull head holding her white dress from blowing up, is a reference to a famous photograph of Marilyn Monroe the film The Seven Year Itch.
