  • As an avid Devil May Cry fan and after playing DMC Devil May Cry, I'll admit, the game was well developed, I loved the storyline, the characters were well developed, still has that touch of the old Devil May Cry games and the new Dante is a badass and kinda sexy too. But anyways, this is something I've always thought, what if DMC Devil May Cry is a prequel to the classic Devil May Cry games? When you look at it, Dante began with black hair yet Vergil had white hair, this could mean that during that time, Dante was a bit of a late bloomer with unlocking his full demon potential yet Vergil can. This could be because of when Vergil mentioned about a car crash and one of the twins suffered amnesia; it was Dante. Because of him having amnesia, he didn't have much memories of his childhood until he went into Limbo in the old mansion that was once Dante and Vergil's home. Also, I believe that with Vergil's Downfall, it shows how Vergil became the villian that he is well known in the Devil May Cry franchise which is to say the least an eye opener. But yea, that's what I believe it is to be, DMC Devil May Cry is connected to the classic versions of the games. What do you think?

    • If you were an avid Devil May Cry fan then you would long by now get the memo that two universes are absolutely not connected, I believe even the creators pointed that out themselves, DmC is just taking familiar elements and reimagining it in a different style.

    • Classic Timeline: manga, 3, 1, anime, 4, 2

      You are very confused. Let me clear up some things about DmC:

      1) Vergil mentioned he was involved in a car crash that wiped his memory. Dante got meningitis and that wiped his memory. These were both lies. Sparda wiped their memories and hid them away.

      2) Vergils hair was always white, this was seen in the flashbacks.

      Now let me clear up why this doesn't align with DMC:

      1) Dante's hair was always white. This was shown in the anime in a picture of young Dante.

      2) Mundus is still alive. Dante and Vergil kill Mundus in DmC, which, by your theory, would take place before DMC3. This doesn't work because Mundus is alive in 3 and 1.

      3) Vergil wasn't around again until the manga. From the time of Eva's death until the manga Vergil and Dante hadn't met and Vergil was believed to be dead.

      4) They are confirmed to be seperate.

      they have jumped back and forth multiple times with reboot/rebirth/re-imagining/alternate univers, finally settling on alt. universe.

      Exactly what he said. They are separate universes, plain and simple. It can even be proven by how different the worlds are in DmC from the classics. There was no "Limbo" in Devil May Cry 1, 2, or 4, the only place similar is the demon world from 3, which even then is not "LImbo". 

      Plus, the game was not that good. In essence of itself, yes, it was a pretty stellar game, but as a Devil May Cry reboot, it is TRUMPED by the original hands-down. The story didn't make much sense, and most of the characters didn't either. Look at Mundus (which is said wrong all throughout the game), he's pissy at Dante because he's the only one who can kill him, when Dante at the beginning didn't even give two shits about Mundus. It wasn't until Vergil and Kat, and Mundus, started talking to him and revealing more truths and such, and Mundus going after Dante, when all of this could have been avoided entirely if Mundus just screwed off when Sparda and Eva first met each other, which also contrasts from the original story.

    • Not to take this off topic, but I can't believe DMC 4 comes before 2. I still consider 2 not to be a game, but that's just me.

      You can't consider 2 not to be a game, not only is it canon but it wasn't as bad as people make it out to be. Sure, 1 3 and 4 were much better, but 2 wasn't that bad. And it was a good challenge, and introduced the... what's it called, rain storm? 

      Point is, some of the cool shit originally came from 2.

    • I don't take much from the inclusion to the story 2 has, but your opinion is your opinion. I still believe the timeline is prequel manga, 3, 1, animated series, 4, and 2. It's just by Dante's age in 4; it should be after 2, but whatever. It's not like Capcom explains their reasoning. 

        Loading editor
    • What is Dante's age anyway? This has been eluded to many times but the most we get is speculation or theory. 

        Loading editor
    • I would like to know this too. I also want to know why Vergil wanted to be like his dad so much right down to having bedtime with a human to have a son. However, I also believe he didn't truly love the human anyway. Vergil was more absorbed with power you know. That's my take. I'm still trying to erase part of the fact they pulled a Wesker on him. And after typing this, I realized my comment above was about the timeline, which I TRULY believe is: prequel, 3, 1, 2, 4. I'm such a dork.

        Loading editor
    • lol Well Vergil didn't want to be like him, only he wanted to be powerful. 

      This says it in the wiki itself, though it may just be speculation with solid evidence. It quotes Vergil after he first beats Dante, saying "Foolishness, Dante. Foolishnss. Might controls everything, and without strength, you cannot protect anything, let alone yourself."

        Loading editor
    • What I mean is, that Vergil was a little more reflective than it seems. And that quote shows a bit of that.

      Someone calculated that Dante was 36 in DMC4.

    • Aproximate Dante age per game (note: I saw this in a Youtube video that really did a good job at explaining stuff). Plus what logic dictates when looking at Dante in each game.

      DMC3 Dante is 19.

      DMC1 Dante is 28.

      DMC4 Dante is 38. Although, if you count the artbook (the name of which currently eludes me), he's 40.

      DMC2 Dante... well, that mostly comes off as an assumption in the video, and I don't actually agree with the logic behind  it. I mean, sure, it's a nice estimate, but there's no way to be certain that he's 49. He doesn't look the part, either.

      This still helps my case on DMC2. 

      Anyways, point is DMC2 contributed a lot to the series, and whether you think that it's bad or not, your opinion, but you can't leave it out of the canon. That's like trying to say Legend of Zelda Spirit Tracks isn't canon because it was a shitty game.

      It's a fine game, people just don't see much potential in it, and I can't blame them, either.

    • Well, it doesn't help than the rest of the games are much better. (Except DmC)

      Still, it doesn't mean DMC2 is bad.

    • DMC2 is bad. The style meter is busted. Aerial enemies/combat bites. OP guns. Dodge doesn't react fast enough. Targeting system is busted. Combo system is busted too. The game barely stands on its own. It has some cool concepts in terms of gameplay but execution is horrible.

    • It was just Capcom trying to cash in on the smash success of the original. The only thing I liked from DMC2 was Dante's design, it was sexy.

    • Well, DMC3 is the proof that, if they had bothered, they could have made a great game right off the bat.

      But true, Dante's design in DMC2 is awesome.

        Loading editor
    • The game was still a good game, just not compared to the rest. And it birthed multiple things that have been used since then, and I enjoyed it at least a little bit. 

      But the pointof this was, you can't just leave dmc2 out of the mix, it's still very much canon. To leave it out would be like leaving the anime out, or bits of the first novel. (See how I said bits? Not all of the novel is canon.)

    • It's really not a good game, too easy, the story tried to be what it isn't. Whoever wrote the game obviously didn't get Dante's character, (except that one scene, his whole "King? Here's your crown." *bang*), the girl was trying to be the generic tsundere... it needs to be taken out to the pasture and shot.

      But you're also forgetting the many things it introduced into the series.

      Gunslinger and Trickster, Rebellion, two playable characters instead of one, and many other features.

    • I don't know. A lot of people said that during development in the first few missions (like 1-6) the game was suppossed to be a reboot, and that this Dante, is from an alternate timeline. However, that was before Dante got a personality change, I think they wanted to start a series of New Devil May Cry games, with a tweaked character and alternate story, but after the fan outlash, they decided to stop that dream halfway through and go with a prequel instead after they had already made the first missions. As someone who only read the story from the other games and didn't play it, I can't say much. I only played the Definitive version, since i got a PS4 when I was 19. Strict parents.

      DmC has the most solid animations and combat mechanics regardless of what all these nostalgic so-called hardcore fangays say. Someone from Ninja Theory actually figured that mixing combat and movement keys is an absolutely horrible idea and combat should rely more on timing and combining. The fact that skill moves have LS combinations in them is enough to throw every Hack'n Slash game into the trash can
