    in a time, long since past...

    It was an age of darkness when the underworld and its sinister army ruled the Earth. The humans were powerless and their hope lay with a demon named Sparda. With a spirit unlike any other, and wielding the sword that bore his own name, Sparda eradicated the demons and saved mankind.

    But evil returned.

    Now his son has inherited the legend of Sparda and continues the battle against the Dark Lords. His name is Dante.
