Check Out What To Do After Beating The Game

Two Difficulties Are Unlocked By Default

When initially starting the game, you will only be able to choose between two modes: "Human" and "Devil Hunter". You will be able to unlock other difficulties later on by finishing the game on different difficulty levels.

Unable To Change Difficulty Mid-Game

Make sure that you are happy with the difficulty that you have set for yourself when starting the game. You will not be able to change the difficulty while playing through the game.

Which Difficulty Should You Choose?

Human Mode For A Relaxed Game

Human Mode For A Relaxed Game

Bosses and enemies have significantly less health and deal less damage. This is also often referred to as "Easy Mode". In Devil May Cry 3, this mode is unlocked after dying 3 times on Normal Mode.

Devil Hunter For A Standard Playthrough

This is the default difficulty setting for Devil May Cry. This gives a fair challenge, and can be tougher than standard action games. This the equivalent of Normal Difficulty.

Son of Sparda For Tougher Challenges

In this mode, enemies tend to deal more damage, and can have higher health. This is usually unlocked after beating the game once. This is the game's equivalent of Hard Mode.

Dante Must Die Mode For Craftier Enemies

Dante Must Die Mode For Craftier Enemies

In this mode, enemies are tougher, have twice the amount of health, and use more attacks. In past games, enemies gain a Devil Trigger which they can use against you.

Unlock Super Costumes For Characters

You will be able to clear Super Costumes for each character by completing the game in Dante Must Die mode. Super Costumes grant tons of benefits such as unlimited Devil Trigger and maxed out abilities, but will reduce your Rank Score by 80%.

Heaven Or Hell Mode For Near Impossible Game

In Heaven Or Hell mode, players can die in one attack, however, enemies can also die in one attack. Players are given 3 to 4 lives throughout the playthrough.

Against All Odds in Hell And Hell Mode

Against All Odds in Hell And Hell Mode

This is the hardest difficulty in the series. In Hell And Hell mode, players also die in one attack, and are given 3 lives. However, enemies do not die in one attack, and is similar in behavior as that of Dante Must Die difficulty.

Difficulty Level Overview

Use Earned Abilities and Items At Higher Difficulties

In previous games, players are allowed to use abilities and items they've earned in lower difficulty levels when moving to higher difficulty levels.

Harder Modes Are Unlocked After Game Completion

Higher difficulty levels are unlocked upon completion of the game on a lower difficulty. Once unlocked, the difficulty can be changed on the Mission Start screen.
