    They should’ve make dmc movies or series just like the witcher, that would be awesome!

    They should have pulled 2 out of the timeline and rewrite it based on Vergil quote from DMC5: "That day, if our positions were switched... Would our fates be different? Would I have your life and you mine?" and make the Son of Sparda in DMC2 Vergil who was saved instead of Dante.
    Wait a minute... Did anyone ever say the name "Dante" in DMC2? I only remember "Son of Sparda" when they talked to him.

    DmC: Devil May Cry was obviously set in an alternate universe. When are people gonna get that?

    Ever since I talked about Devil May Cry 1 to my friend having played it (after years... probably a Decade... of only watching that 4 Minute Trailer on the PS2 Demo Disc that came with my PS2 in 2001 and being completely infatuated with this weird creepy game I had no idea about) he started to call it Devil Might Cry... The Series will always be Devil Might Cry to me now 🤣

    I always think (before that announcement in twitter) that dmc2 it goes last in the timeline since dante acts more "mature" since is less jokes and things like that and for that it means dante is more older

    Okay so if Nero gets his devil trigger in dmc4 why is it treated like an awakened power in dmc5. I don’t get it. Someone explain

  • Oh Yeah yeah Yeah yeah

    vergils sword gets passed around like a beach ball
