23rd Oct: It's time for the Second TV Tropes Halloween Avatar Contest! Details here
If Nero shows he will be voiced by Quinton Flynn
Mundus is a misguided heroIn the beginning, Vergil notes that Mundus uses the humans as a factory farm for human souls and monitors them like pets. More or less, he claims that Mundus enslaved the humans to farm them for souls. Yet, throughout the entire game, when have we ever seen Mundus actually use or devour souls? Mundus has the ability to level a section of the city with his mind. If he really wanted to, he could have blown up the entire block containing the order but he doesn't. He doesn't because he wants to protect the humans. All those claims about humans being a factory farm were lies generated by Vergil to coerce Dante to join him. Mundus has all the power he needs from the hell gate, enslaving the humans does not benefit him at all. He keeps the president in check, should the president be corrupted. He ends conflict by keeping people happy with Virility. Most importantly, he installs those cameras to keep an eye out for criminals and terrorists, specifically Dante. Mundus himself confirms this at the end. His dialogue isn't about how Dante's ruined his factory of human souls. Mundus honestly thought he was helping humans because humans are naturally chaotic, and his rage at Dante isn't about how Dante's ruining his business, it's about Dante killing his son.
"Dante" in DmC is not Dante, but Modeus from the animeModeus was scrawnier-looking than Dante and wore black. Modeus somehow became aware of Dante, who is in hiding and calling himself Tony Redgrave. Out of loyalty to Sparda, Modeus decided to help divert attention from the real Dante by fighting large numbers of demons while claiming to be Dante himself. Sadly, Dante will repay this kindness one day by killing Modeus and his brother Baul.
"Dante" is actually The Scout.Dante is too busy to clean up the horde of demons lurking about, so he decided to hire out a certain Bostonian mercenary. Despite his best attempts, he couldn't quite get the replacement-him to drop the Brooklyn accent or the attitude.
There will be an Achievement/Trophy that mocks or teases the fansGiven the rep the game received even before release, there may be an Achivement that (as a joke or easter egg) mocks the fans who complained. Maybe by having Dante seen in his classic form after a certain number of times.
Angels will appear as antagonists in the gameWhile we do know that demons absolutely despise Dante, it would be interesting if angels got into the mix and wanted to kill Dante as well. Considering that Dante is also half-demon, the angels might not have taken very well to Eva having a child with Sparda.
Limbo is the boundary between Earth, Heaven, and HellAnd by the time the game ends, Limbo will be destroyed allowing demons to enter the Human World relatively freely and thus letting humans see them. A possible side effect of this is that Dante will be mode locked into this game's version of his devil trigger. Come on, admit it. That would satisfy those that are still neigh sayers.
This game is a Batman Gambit by Ninja TheoryWith all the heat they're getting for it, it seems possible. Their end goal could be an attempt to receive approval from those that bash them, which will be the ultimate F-U to those people as well.
There will be an unlockable costume that will look like what Ninja Theory originally had in mind for DanteIt's already been mentioned that the folks at NT had designs for Dante that looked more like his original self, maybe we'll get an alternate costume out of it.
DmC is actually a alternate universe created when the original Dante entered the Marvel Universe.
This is when Dante and Vergil last met before the events of Devil May Cry 3Their ages match up, and it is possible that Dante will get the perma white hair and blue eyes by the end of the game, like Vergil. As to why Dante had no qualms about pointing a gun at Vergil's head, it's because of Kat. It is possible that, in order to destroy Limbo, Vergil used Kat as a sacrificial death to cause its destruction near the end of the game, leading to the hostility between the two brothers.
Vergil was adopted by Mundus and is in truth working for him to set Dante up for a fallExactly What It Says on the Tin. Or he's controlled by Mundus.
Vergil already has access to his full powers, which is why his hair is whiteBecause in the original series Vergil already had his devil trigger by the time he and Dante met up, this would be a nice reference to that.
Sparda is what powers LimboThe bio for Vergil says his father had been enslaved, so this seems likely. If so, his death will break the boundary between Earth and Hell.
Marvel vs. Capcom is to blame for the conception of this game but not its success or failureThink of it this way. Marvel and Capcom crossover, Spider-Man made a Deal with the Devil, his history and the world get altered, so did all the universes connected to the Marvel Multiverse.
Vergil is completely good during the entire gameHe'll appear ambiguous throughout, but it's mainly to confuse the player. Either that, or...
The game will have Multiple EndingsDepending on choices, Virgil lives or dies.
The Tyrant, the Dreamrunner, the Witch, or the Butcher will be a Degraded BossLike hell vanguard, some of them appear at first as a boss.
How strong is a tyrant?
There will be a Boss Rush in DMC.The third and fourth games had them, I do not see this will be an exception.
Sparda isn't deadIn the demo, it's stated that Eva was killed by the demons, but Sparda was imprisoned. So, hopefully, Sparda will actually make a appearance in-game.
If there is a sequel, Angels are going to be the new enemy, mostly fallen/renegades, who want Dante destroyed because of his "impurity"
Sparda will be freed in the next game.And he'll decide that he should rule the humans.
Vergil will come back... As an ally.While he and Dante disagreed on the method, both of them wanted to protect humanity. Vergil will aid Dante in defending humans from other threats, after which he try to do what he thinks is necessary to protect humanity from itself.
Dante and Kat will be in an out and out relationship at the start of the next game.If this means a 1/4 demon, 1/4 angel and half human hybrid, IDK, but it would be better than previous games where Dante's too cool to fall in love
"Vergil's Downfall" will be harder than Dante's campaign.Possibly.
Argosax will appear in the next game.This time he's a demon king similar to Mundus, only coming from a different part of the world, and he and his servants will try to take over the now demon king-less Limbo City, forcing Dante to protect it from the invading demons.
Wisp and Improsoner are....It was announced that in the Vergil's Downfall DLC, there will be two new enemies, Wisp and the Improsoner.
A Hunter will appear in Vergil's Downfall.Is mentioned by Mundus that there is more than one Hunter. So it's possible that Vergil will fight against a hunter or even against several hunters.
The Dreamrunners are Nephilims.
Vergil's foster parents were actually killed by angels.It would be a good twist I think, and it would make sense that they'd frame demons so to motivate Vergil to take a stand against them. And, let's face it, not all angels are going to be good.
Classic Dante from the original continuity (DMC 2 version specifically) will one day crossover with the DmC continuityDmC: Devil May Cry was confirmed to take place in an alternate universe (eventually) from that of the games in the original continuity. Interestingly enough, Devil May Cry Volume 2 (which takes place prior to the events of Devil May Cry 2 in the original continuity) features interdimensional travel between parallel universes as an important Plot Device. note Therefore Classic Dante might appear by escaping from being trapped in the Demon World at the conclusion of DMC 2 by finding a portal to the Dm C universe. He might be tricked into working for the Big Bad of the game and would also set a contrast between reDante's hotblooded brashness and idealism and Dante's cool, cynical, and professional demeanor.
Alternate!Nero will be the protagonist of the sequelAnd in a fit of irony, he's going to start out as a Totally Radical skater punk.
This is the end.The past series was too messed up, and the reboot didn't work out so Capcom is gonna shelf the series for a long time (maybe forever)
Ebony & Ivory's redesign are due to LimboIRL/Normally, they look like the original.
