DMC: Devil May Cry was originally released in January of 2013. It suffered a painful marketing campaign as the Devil May Cry faithful slated the game’s new look and re-imagined world. There was still no escaping the fact that, after Devil May Cry 4 - things were getting a bit stale. It was clear to see Capcom was running out of ideas for the adventures of Dante. In the end, the re-imagined world of DMC was exactly what the franchise needed.
