I would want to do it like in DMC2, where you have two scenarios with each character, but with improvements. First off, they both better have a decent amount of missions. I'm talking 20 each which would be the equivelant of two games so that way people won't complain that they only got to play as Dante/Nero for half the game. Also, I want it to be two completely different scenarios. They can be working on the same goal or fighting the same antagonist, but I don't want the majority of Nero's missions to just be re-runs of Dante's, like how it was in DMC2 as Lucia, and I want both scenarios to be equally important. I hate how you could understand everything that happens in DMC2 without touching Lucia.

Dante only, and the lead villain would be a mop.

Actually I think mop would make a good playable character. Sometimes it's fun to play as the bad guys. Then at the end mop would realize the power of the heart and use his power to sweep evil from the world. And Dante would fill mop's heart with light.

No Nero.

Dante, Vergil or Sparda and Im a happy camper.

I feel bad for Nero, all this hate for no good reason :/ Yeah he's not as badass as Dante, but nobody is, except maybe Vergil and Sparda, but if you don't compare him to those guys, he's awesome. BTW I wouldn't mind any of these options, I just feel the DMC2 route would be the best one since it would be an oppurtunity to explain Nero and (hopefully) show Dante getting out of hell.

Dante and Nero, even if you don't like him his gameplay was fun as hell. Probably the best in the series.

Plus they could explore him more, he's not a bad character.

Hear, hear!

Both Dante and Nero, DMC2 style but as dillpickle69 said, unique scenarios for them instead of a retread like with Lucia. Maybe go through the same buildings BUT proceed via different routes. Like how something Dante does in his chapter allows Nero to access a path that Nero couldn't get to earlier, and vice versa.

DMC5 should be a Matier origin story.

Dante only. My reasoning:

I wouldn't mind the DMC2 route w/ Dante & Nero as you described Dill, but, realistically, they wouldn't because of how much longer it would take to develop properly. So, I'd rather have them spend all of their development time focusing on a proper Dante-centered game, even over a DMC3:SE approach.
