The half-angel, half-demon Dante in DmC Devil May Cry is not the Dante you know from Devil May Cry. Strange yes, but there’s an explanation inside Dengeki PlayStation. The magazine explains Ninja Theory’s game takes place in parallel world.
The Dante we know and love still exists in our world and the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 universe. Ninja Theory suggested this storyline shift, according to the magazine.
DmC Dante has separate angel and devil powers. Players can switch between these by pressing a button. DmC Devil May Cry has a devil trigger function, but it won’t turn this Dante into a devil. Instead, it freezes enemies in their tracks.
DmC Devil May Cry is in development for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
