Devil May Cry 4 Story Revelations | has a couple of new (I think) images of Devil May Cry 4 and it also reveals (sort of) some of the story. I’ve used Babelfish to translate the text but it’s still not clear what the story is about but I’ll share with you all what I think is going on.

Man I’m firsty...

OK. The game is set in the coastal fort city Fortuna with a group known as the “demon sword teaching group” who seem to worship The Legendary Dark Knight Sparda. This is where it gets complicated. 😐

The group (possibly a cult) or Nero seems to be in a state of chaos and/or corruption with Nero, who is a bit of a loner, eventually being given the task to resurrect Sparda but he doesn’t seem to have any Devil Powers like Dante or Vergil so is given the Devil Bringer abilities which he uses with his right arm.

Nero in action

Dante, or someone that looks just like him, turns up & starts slaughtering members of the “demon sword teaching group”. If that is Dante what are his intentions? Is he opposed to Sparda’s resurrection? Whatever the scenario it seems that you, playing as Nero, will do battle with Dante at certain points of the game as Nero is under the control of the “demon sword teaching group”.

My head hurts!!

I’m guessing that the group wants to bring Sparda back to life but to control him giving them ultimate power to rule both the demon underworld & the world we humans inhabit. Nero is already under their control to a certain extent & he is giving the task to resurrect Sparda but Dante turns up to stop them from manipulating his father.

Eventually Dante ‘frees’ Nero from under the control of the cult and they both end up fighting on the same side trying to prevent Sparda from falling into the hands of the cult.

Maybe. 😀

Thanks to Dav for helping me maintain my obsession with DMC!

DMC4 Story Revealed

  • How awsome does that Dragon look!! 😯

    I hope it has an attitude similar to Phantom from DMC.


  • If this is true then I want to see Dante slap Sparda around just for the fun of it.

  • Kirby

    Is Nero the main character or Dante?
    Or in all the game you’re using Nero?

  • Hi Kirby.

    Nero is the main character in DMC4 but you will be able to play as Dante in some parts of the game.

    I’d rather play the entire game as Dante but they’ve decided Dante peaked at DMC3.

  • Deathraven

    I’d reather be able to play both as my favourite Dante and Nero, but if i’d have to choose i’d be definatly DANTE

    Right, Nero’s arm is Vergil’s soul. It is Dante But the “ORDER OF THE SWORD” are the bad guys. there not resurrecting Sparda, there resurrecting The Saviour And Nero is meant to be like Vergil. Dante Is sorta a main Character and is playable, but Nero is the main guy in this, Got it? Oh yeah, you can tell the Devil Bringer is related to Vergil, cause on one of the levels, you find Yamato (Vergil’s sword) in half and is impossible to fix. But when Nero is being killed, he uses his Devil Trigger and fixes Yamato. Then, instead of him turning Devil, A Demon Resembling Vergil’s devil form, appears behind him. Is that what you want to know?

    Oh and Gary, It’s not a Dragon.

    You do realise I posted that almost 2 years ago, when there was very little info about DMC4 doing the rounds?

    I’ll be doing a post about DMC4 once I’ve finished it. I’ve just finished Mission 11 so I get to use Dante next! 😈
