With the upcoming release of Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition fans were wondering with the addition to Vergil when the game takes place as it needs some explaining. I have mentioned this in some post and in light of some new info I decided to touch on it again so that people understand the line of events when it comes to adventure of Sparda line age. Before we begin I am leaving out DMC Devil May Cry only because I have no idea where it falls in the time line. With said the games released in order of release is Devil May Cry, Devil May Cry 2, Devil May Cry 3, Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition, Devil May Cry 4 and Devil May Cry Special Edition. Time line is where things gets a little bit crazy. The order is as follows. DMC 3, DMC 3 SE, DMC 1, DMC 4, DMC 4Se (with one parts before DMC 3), DMC 2.
The reason for the order mix up is because Capcom had a reboot of their own from DMC 2 to DMC 3. DMC 2 Dante is older taking away the persona we loved in the first one with that smart ass response along with the game play which just made fans upset and thus with DMC 3 they had to go back and with the first time we get to play as Date brother Vergil. Vergil has appeared before in DMC 1 as an enemy under Mondus the big enemy of the game control where as in DMC3SE he going against Dante for his own reasons. Towards the end it links him to DMC 1 one and how he got their.
This next part is where things get thrown for another loop. DMC4SE gives players another chance to play as Vergil the things is they gave his play through a time line which happens before DMC3SE. At the same time he has all of the weapons from his time during DMC3SE. For instance he has Beowulf gauntlets which he got by killing the fallen angle. With that all said we have been given hints that if we pay attention that we will get hints at the actual cannon. I do not know if they are going to link these event or pic and chose but for now this is what the DMC time line looks like for the moment.
As always thank you for reading.
