New Dante and Vergil > Old Dante and Vergil. They actually have character now.
Explain. Dante did have character in DMC3, 1, and 4.
Dante went from cocky ass who wanted revenge on demons who didn't give a crap about the world to cocky demon hunter willing to defend the world. He later accepted the demon Trish and forgave her and teamed up with her. He grows up to see past many villain tricks in DMC4 though he didn't expect someone like Nero. He offers cryptic advice like a mentor and even allows him to use Yamato, his own brother's sword.
He's a lot more at peace with his life by the end of DMC1 and DMC4. He even says things like Humans have something demons lack. DMC3 Dante would never say something like that early in the game.
