''[=DmC=]: Devil May Cry'' is a HackAndSlash ActionAdventure VideoGame developed by Creator/NinjaTheory. First announced as a ContinuityReboot to the ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'' series, it later became a {{prequel}}. It is now apparently an AlternateContinuity set in a parallel universe... [[FlipFlopOfGod or something]].

In this alternate continuity, demons secretly run the world, controlling everything from [[PropagandaMachine the media]] to [[MorallyBankruptBanker the financial sector]] to [[IAteWhat food production]]. Living on the fringes of the [[MassHypnosis brainwashed society]] is Dante, the [[ConvenientlyAnOrphan orphaned son]] of [[NonhumanHumanoidHybrid an angel and a demon]] at odds with the demons who have made his life hell for as long as he can remember. Over the course of his battles through the [[MalevolentArchitecture twisted streets]] of Limbo, Dante is contacted by a [[MysteriousWaif mysterious psychic]] named Kat on behalf of [[LaResistance The Order]], a rogue group led by Dante's [[LongLostRelative long lost brother]] Vergil. Vergil, [[SelfMadeMan a millionaire computer genius]], is hell-bent on exposing the demons to the world and freeing Limbo City from their clutches.

Gameplay combines multiple elements from previous entries, with further emphasis on platforming and aerial combos: The StanceSystem for instance now involves Dante switching between [[YinYangBomb demonic and angelic powers]] on the fly in both combat and exploration segments. However, a large arsenal of weapons is still available, including the [[CoolSword classic longsword]], a [[AnAxeToGrind demonic axe]], an [[SinisterScythe angelic scythe]], and [[PowerFist flaming gauntlets]]. Dante's signature [[LimitBreak Devil Trigger]] also returns, now allowing you to temporarily [[TimeStandsStill freeze time]] and kick even more ass. Exploration and platforming meanwhile revolve around the new Malice System, where Dante alternates between the [[RealIsBrown gloomy-looking real world]] and a [[DarkWorld demonic parallel world]] with [[ChaosArchitecture distorted architecture]] and [[BrightIsNotGood vivid colors]] where [[EverythingTryingToKillYou even the city itself is trying to kill you]].

* UrbanRuins: Limbo City is this in general due to its generally crumbing appearance, but it's even more so in its alternate dimension mode, which has demons running around
