We've got some new details on Ninja Theory's DMC Devil May Cry that will definitely interest fans of the series' dark story. According to a post, which has since been removed from Capcom Unity, Dante, the main character in the game is a man who, "has no respect for authority or indeed society in general.” Shocking, a rebellious character who has grown up in institutions, orphanages, youth correction facilities, and foster homes.
What is neat though, is the fact that these facilities were all run by demons, which often resulted in the torture or other types of violence for the residents, and that's where Dante's hatred of demons and authority apparently stems from.
"Dante has therefore developed a deep hatred of demons and authority in general but tries to stay incognito. He sides with the little guy, the victims of what he sees as an unfair society."
We also learned that Dante's Rebellion sword was given to him by his father Sparda, so that he could better protect himself against the demons that hunt him. That leaves us to question where his pistols Ebony and Ivory came from, but I'm sure all will be revealed eventually.
Devil May Cry is out for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 later in 2012.
