Fridge Brilliance: Dm C: Devil May Cry was confirmed to take place in an alternate universe (eventually) from that of the games in the original continuity. Interestingly enough, in Devil May Cry Volume 2 (which takes place prior to the events of Devil May Cry 2 in the 0riginal continuity), features interdimensional travel between parallel universes as an important Plot Device. Bonus Points for the fact that the primary alternate universe that Dante is in for most of the Novel is one where Mundus DOES rule the human world. Strange fate. Isn't it?
