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 with a more brutal and visceral edge.
Dante is a young man who has no respect for authority or society in general. Dante knows that he is not human, but neither is he like the demons that have tormented him throughout his life. Caught between worlds, he feels like an outcast.
He is now discovering and coming to terms with what it means to be the child of a demon and an angel. This split personality allows Dante to call upon angel and demon abilities at will, transforming his Rebellion sword on the fly to dramatically affect both movement and combat.
