A prequel to/continuation of Capcom's popular Devil May Cry saga, this action game features series protagonist Dante as a younger, cockier demon hunter just getting started in the business. Throughout the course of his adventure, players must aid sword-wielding, gun-toting Dante in not only saving the world but also unleashing the full potential of his demonic legacy. The game is mission-based, with most of its action centering around a journey to the top of the dark tower Temen-ni-gru. Devil May Cry 3 also features notably difficult gameplay and a "style" system where players are ranked according to how many combos they can execute in succession.
- Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition was released in North America on January 24, 2006. This updated version features new content including optional boss fights, the "Bloody Palace" survival mode, and the notable addition of Dante's brother-turned-nemesis Vergil as a playable character.
