I have to admit I find it very strange that Dante, Classic Dante even, is on a nintendo console considering his history with sony, nintendo's current rival! That being said, the situation is a vast improvement over the reboot!
He should have teamed up with Trish to hammer the fact that this is the DMC1 Dante but alas for some messed up reason his partner is Demitri which makes no sense. It is also unfair that Chris gets to have Jill as his partner.
I have to ask, why does Dante has the Rebellion Sword? He's supposed to be equipped either the Alastor Sword or the Force Edge (his default weapon). I don't think the Rebellion existed when Hideki Kamiya was working on the first DMC game, and I heard the creator was going to properly introduce Vergil in the second game before Capcom went behind his back to create the second one without him.
