Devil May Cry 2 is the sequel to Devil May Cry.

From the start of the game, the player controls Dante, or his new partner, Lucia, through various levels as they battle waves of demons, ultimately reaching the conclusion and finding out Arius schemes.

This game features an Amulet system, with different parts being acquired throughout the levels that can be equipped by accessing the pause menu. The different parts of the amulet can be equipped to change aspects of the characters Devil Triggers form like elemental moves, time stop abilities, faster movement, flight abilities, etc.

The game is the debut of Dante's iconic sword the Rebellion. Dante also has new abilities like running on walls, aerial kicks, and multi-directional shooting. Lucia utilizes two underhanded, curved swords and also rapidly throws knives at her enemies.

Capcom had a marketing tie-in with the Diesel clothing company and as a result the game contains unlockable Diesel-designed clothing for both Dante and Lucia. Also, the game was promoted in Diesel's boutiques in Japan.


The word "Ouroboros" is written on the side of Arius' helicopter. Ouroboros is the symbolization of concepts such as completion, perfection and totality, the endless round of existence, etc.


According to publisher Capcom, Devil May Cry 2 has sold 1.7 million copies worldwide since its initial release (as of June 30, 2016).
