About the game

Meet Dante: a half-human, half-demon devil hunter hellbent on taking down the king of the underworld, Mundus. Whether you’re at home, or on the go, slice, shoot, and skewer enemies with outrageous combos in the game that showed the world what stylish action was all about.


Mundus, king of the underworld. Your father banished him once. Now, he wants out.

One day, a mysterious woman named Trish arrives at Dante’s shop, Devil May Cry. She speaks of Mundus, the king of the underworld, banished to Mallet Island over 2000 years ago. This same Mundus was responsible for the death of Dante’s family so very long ago…

Now he’s back, and Trish wants Dante to put him down.
