What would DMC5 even be...?

No I didn't, I just said the truth, eventually a character has to develop or they will die.

So what character developments have Mario and Link gone through?

Are you implying that Mario's character hasn't developed?

Not really character development so much as "gaining a character at all". He's got a personality now and that's probably as much as he'll ever have. Mario games do not revolve around Mario developing as a character. Even in the rpgs he's a flat character.

Perhaps his personality hasn't, but through all of the games we learn his hobbies,

Dante runs a small business.

his attitude towards his brother,

Fairly complicated, certainly a hook you could use for a future game's plot.

his willingness to work with enemies upon occasion,

"But on one condition... No. Talking."

how willing he is to help people he doesn't know,

That's kind of what he does for a living. Or he'll even do it for free on occasion like with Credo's last request.

even what games he plays.

Pretty much all of that information was addressed about Dante in DMC1.

Really, it could just be a game of Dante/Trish/Lady taking jobs from clients, or discovering the souls of Mundus and Arkham have fused or something.

The story has always been secondary for me in these games. Unless of course the story or characters are bad to the point where I want to rip my hair out. Then we got problems.

If it was a prequel or had no plot-advancing elements whatsoever, I'd be really pissed. They need to at least explain Nero or give 2 a climax.

DMC5: Return of Dante can be right after DMC2, with Nero setting up a portal to get Dante out of the Demon World. He would be at a castle, gathering items needed for the ritual, and the main enemy for his scenario would be a demon whom Sparda sealed on the Island that the castle's in, obviously trying to stop Nero because he doesn't want Sparda's son coming back, and also having some sort of a grudge against Vergil, who he can faintly sense inside Nero. In Dante's scenario, he will be on the other side, fighting through demons to get to the area where the Hell gate would be in the Human World. How Dante knows he needs to go to that specific Hell gate is up for debate, but you could easily have Nero utilize an item that lets him talk to Dante for 2 minutes and explain what he's doing. Dante's enemy would be Mundus, who is still sealed in the Demon World. Needless to say, Dante would be killing him this time instead of sealing him somewhere. Nero's scenario would be explaining his past, with appearances from Lucia, who is taking care of Dante's shop in the meantime, Lady, who gives Nero a ride to the castle and stays guarding their escort, and Trish, who is helping Nero collect the items and can have her own unlockable mini-scenario. Dante's personality in DMC2 doesn't need to be explained, he had a similar personality in the anime but he is back to normal in DMC4, which means Dante can just get moody. Nero's past would be revealed either as Dante & Vergil's cousin (corny, I know) or as a failed clone of Vergil.
DMC5: Vergil's Downfall (badum-tss) would start out when Vergil and Dante are 8, and would shed light on their mother's death. It would then show what happens to Vergil afterwards and how he becomes the way he was in DMC3. Nothing specific, but off the top of my head it would be based around a 15-16 year old Vergil fighting to free his lover, whom one of Sparda's old enemies has captured (Hell, if you want to add a big twist, it would be the same one that is trying to stop Nero in the plot for Dante's Return, stated above). The demon-lord took her into the demon world to use as a sacrifice for a ritual to undo the seal placed on him by Sparda. In the end, the ritual was successful, and his girl dies. Vergil then defeats him, but before he could kill him, the Demon seals himself back into the Demon World to save his life. Thus, Vergil becomes bitter and power-hungry, quoting himself in DMC3: "Might controls everything. Without it, you cannot protect anything."
DMC5: Sparda's Legacy would be about Sparda and his rebellion. The beginning would be about Sparda carrying out Mundus' orders to wipe out a town of Devil Hunters. He does so, but one woman escapes, and it is from then on, his mission to find and kill her. (The enemies for this part would be other demons who are rebelling against Mundus, but aren't really a threat). When he finds her, they fight with Sparda winning easily, but some vague romance stuff happens and they fall in love, with Sparda slowly turning against Mundus. Sparda Starts off with Force Edge, but along the way finds Yamato and Rebellion. Yamato behaves like it does in DMC3, but Rebellion's true form is shown to actually be a very strong Flaming Sword, available only when in the Demon World. There would be bosses that were in previous DMC games that mentioned knowing Sparda, like Beowulf. Around the time of the final confrontation with Mundus, his Demonic Orb (which holds a huge amount of demonic power and is shown to be the reason of his god-status) ends up having it's own will and imbues it's power into Force Edge, giving Sparda the sword of Sparda. yadayada, Sparda seals Mundus, yada yada, seals off the demon world.

Also forgot to mention that each scenario gets 20 missions minimum with NO back tracking. And for the Vergil game, once you beat DMD you can play an epilogue as Nelo Angelo in DMC1.
