Debuting in 2001, Devil May Cry immediately redefined the action genre. The title captured gamers’ hearts through its stylish, over-the-top action and bad boy anti-hero Dante. Son to a human mother and a devil father named Sparda, the half-demon Dante uses his innate abilities and the powers of ancient demons to fight a one-man war against the forces of darkness and save humanity from damnation.

Devil May Cry 2 released in 2003 and centres on Dante and his new devilishly agile partner Lucia in their fight to defeat a man hell-bent on achieving supreme power.   Devil May CryTM 3: Dante’s Awakening Special Edition is the definitive edition of Devil May Cry 3: Dante’s Awakening, featuring a number of enhancements, including the opportunity to play as Dante’s twin brother, Vergil, as well as the addition of Bloody Palace Mode and Turbo Mode.
