Several thousand years have passed since the demon warrior Sparda raised his sword against the unholy world to save the human race. Victorious and assured that evil forces had been confined, Sparda joined mankind and fathered Dante, a half human-half demon son infused with the power of a supernatural lineage. However, Dante was not the only son Sparda had sired. As devoted as Dante was to defeating the forces of evil, his twin brother, Virgil, was consumed by power and upheld the legacy of his sinister ancestors. One moonlit night, a mysterious tower materialized beside Dante's "Devil May Cry" investigative agency. On the rooftop stood his brother along with his inhuman minions goading Dante into a confrontation.
Devil May Cry 3 unfolds an earlier chapter in Dante's history, before the original Devil May Cry, to the fateful clash between Sparda's twin sons, divided by the divergence of their chosen paths. Along the way, Dante encounters formidable foes and unusual characters including a mysterious man named Arkham and a female hunter named Lady whose mission is to take down all demons, including Dante. These precursory events disclose the complex roots of Dante's character and reveal insight into his clouded past.
Devil May Cry 3 preserves the fast-paced action that has made the series so popular. In addition to its strong roots, the game increases the intensity of gameplay with a new "style" system, which adds an additional level of depth. Depending on preference, players can choose to use short-range, long-range, defensive or evasive play styles. Each system has its own range of gameplay features and players can choose to power up their favorite style for increased special attack abilities. The range of options available in Devil May Cry 3 immerses players in a non-stop, thrilling escapade.

En yngre og slankere Dante har hovedrollen i Devil May Cry 3, som er en forløper til de to første spillene i Capcoms actionfylte, demonjagende serie. Det viser seg imidlertid at Dante ikke er den eneste sønnen til Sparda, for han har en ond tvillingbror ...
Han er kanskje yngre og ennå i ferd med å mestre ferdighetene sine, men DMC3s versjon av Dante er likevel en av de mest effektive (for ikke å si stilige) drapsmaskinene du noen gang har sett. De actionfylte kampene i Devil May Cry 3 kjennetegnes av fire forskjellige kampstiler, så du kan velge å sende de demoniske medhjelperne tilbake til helvete på en rekke forskjellige måter.
Gunslinger og Swordmaster fokuserer på langtrekkende våpen, for eksempel Ebony og Ivory (Dantes to pistoler) og sverd. Trickster fokuserer på defensive og unnvikende teknikker mens Royal Guard dreier seg om kampsportteknikker der fiendenes egen styrke blir brukt mot dem.
Dante og monstrene fra helvetet har aldri sett bedre ut takket være en ny grafikkmotor, og heldigvis er serien like kul som alltid. Det å se Dante kaste fiender i været med sverdet sitt før han sjonglerer med dem ved hjelp av de to pistolene sine, får deg til å flire bredt.
Utvikle din egen spesielle kampstil fra fire forskjellige disipliner.
