Description

Dante returns in this prequel to the first Devil May Cry. The story focuses on Dante's back story, mainly on why he is feuding with his brother. The game is considered to be the hardest of the series. It has a high production value with grand music, a lush atmosphere, compelling characters, and a visually impressive upgraded graphics engine with lighting and shadow effects. An all-new Style system that allows you to select your fighting style has been incorporated into this game. The game itself is non-stop action up until Dante reaches Hellgate.

Trivia

1001 Video Games

Devil May Cry 3 appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

Special Edition

In 2006, Capcom released a Special Edition of DMC 3. It came with new features including the ability to play as Vergil. Oddly, with all of the new additions, you could get the game for the same price as a "Greatest Hits" game around 20 dollars.
