Devil May Cry 5 Dante: Is Dante a Demon?

​Devil May Cry 5 Dante -- the original protagonist of the Devil May Cry series returns once again in his original form (yes, we're talking about DMC: Devil May Cry) to slay demons alongside Nero and a new character V.

Dante first debuted in the original Devil May Cry 5 and he's been the main character ever since. Though players first controlled Nero in Devil May Cry 4, the story has always centered around Dante. 

His backstory takes a while to delve into, but fans new to the series constantly wonder something: is Dante a demon? If you don't want to be spoiled turn back now.

Devil May Cry 5 Dante: Is Dante a Demon?

If you've come this far, you want to be spoiled. Dante is a tricky person. He's half demon, half human. He's the son of the demon Sparda and human Eva. So, yes ​his brother Vergil also is the same species.

If you're going blind into ​Devil May Cry 5, you might want to pick up the other entries into the franchise first to get an understanding of what's going on so you're not confused. It's a fascinating tale and DMC 5 appears to carry on the story strongly.

​Devil May Cry 5 releases Mar. 8 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
