Sequel to Devil May Cry. It was released in 2008 for the PS3 and Xbox 360 and has been ported to PC. In this game, Nero is the protagonist though Dante is still playable.
It is set directly after Devil May Cry 1 and centers on new protagonist Nero, a member of the Order of the Sword. Although he is a member of the organization and is in a romantic relationship with another member, Kyrie, Nero is completely out of place as he does not wear the robes the other members do and does not care for their ideology. The true reason he is there is because of his special and formidable combat abilities, which are indispensable for the order. During a prayer session, Dante suddenly interrupts and shoots the Order leader Sanctus in the head and attacks some of the knights assigned to protect Sanctus. Nero battles Dante and learns that he is half demon when Dante shrugs off being impaled. He also learns that the supposedly dead knights of the order are demons when they suddenly get back up and acquire a demonic appearance. Dante escapes in the ensuing chaos and Nero is assigned to capture Dante. As Nero pursues Dante, he uncovers dark secrets behind the organization he works for.
The game is the only game where an easy difficulty is selectable from the start although normal is still the default setting. It also includes a special Hell and Hell mode where the player will die in one hit but the enemies don't. The PC port includes a Legendary Dark Knight mode, which vastly increases the amount of enemies, turning each fight into a large scale battle. An updated version of the game called Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition was released on Summer 2015. This release features Vergil as a playable character as well as a Japanese voice track option, making this game the first Devil May Cry game to have a Japanese voice track. It also makes Trish and Lady playable. For Lady, this is the first time she is a playable character in the main series.
