Summary

Devil May Cry is one of Capcom’s most successful franchises in the past decade, and charismatic demon-slayer Dante is certainly a hit with gamers (and ladies) the world over. In this high-definition compilation, you get to play the PlayStation 2 trilogy that introduced players into the world of stylish third-person action and insane score-attacking.

In the original Devil May Cry, you assume the role of Dante, a dark character shrouded in mystery. 2000 years ago, a demon swordsman from the depths of hell waged his own personal war against our world. Dante realises that the Devil is trying to rise once again and only he can stop him once and for all.

Devil May Cry 2 offers two separate adventures, one for Dante and the other for a brand new playable character Lucia. While each character undertakes different quests, their fates are inextricably linked. As the adventure begins, it is soon obvious that both hero and heroine share a common cause, even though their focus is different. For Lucia, her nemesis is the shadowy Arius. President of a multinational business conglomerate, Arius has harnessed the power of the underworld to increase his dominance in the human world.

As his power has increased, so too has the stark city he inhabits. Its evil influence is spreading across the land known as Vie de Marli and already encroaching on the old town. Dante has another target, the Demon King, who is providing Arius with the means to execute his diabolical plans. Success for Arius will result in the Demon King breaking his seal of imprisonment and enslaving the Earth. Is Arius aware of the consequences of his actions? Regardless, the fate of mankind lies in the hands of the Demon Slayer and the mysterious female.

The Special Edition of Devil May Cry: Dante’s Awakening included here contains a number of improvements over the original release. The story centres on Dante and his journey to becoming a demon slayer - his twin brother Vergil, consumed by darkness, has come back after a long disappearance for an epic confrontation. As well as Dante, the Special Edition allows you to play as Vergil, who has his own 'Dark Slayer' fighting style. The speed of the game is also boosted by 20%, thanks to the new turbo option.
