Viewtiful Joe, created by the creator of DMC1 (Hideki Kamiya), stated that Dante actually died during the initial attack(when demons attacked him and Vergil when they were 8), and was brought back to life by Eva's spirit in the amulet.
This is a joke since Viewtiful Joe wasn't suppose to be taken seriously, right? --- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WupvY7-ftw

When in doubt, throw it out. At least, that's what seemed to work for DMC2. --- Gamertag is Madigari, for both Xbox 360 and PSN. Of all the things I've lost, I miss my originality the most.

Even if it was real, Itsuno and his team removed everything about Dante's story and persona in DMC1 and made a completely new guy with a white hair and a red coat.
So everything in Viewtiful Joe,DMC1 and DMC1 Novel is fleshed out after DMC3 and DMC4.

The guy keeps coining Dante every game he's part of. I wouldn't take anything he says as canon since he was only involved in DMC1. Borderline case of nostalgic attention wh***.
