They don't deny its canon status. They just don't talk about it because it was black stain in their book. The art book is called 3142 for a reason. Heck, even the History of Devil May Cry in DMC4 takes DMC2 into consideration.

And btw, if they did declare it non canon, then it would be non canon, no matter what we say.

the other way around for me.. it don't matter if they say it's non canon that just a prove they're stupid and reckless, it happened, they created it, and it carries devil may cry name, it's canon to me, no matter what they say

canon

Legit feeling, but pal, doesn't work like that. It's not a matter of opinions. It can be canon in your head, but that doesn't mean it IS actually canon if they decide not to make it. Nothing of what we say can take precedence on an official non canon status, if they ever decide to take DMC2 out of the timeline.

But it is canon, so I don't see where the problem is, they just don't talk about it cause they were not happy with how it turned out to be, that's it.

because there is no problem, you were talking of a non-canon scenario where what we think won't matter, and i i replied if that's the case what they think won't matter, it's more of a selfish statement from me..

he isn't strikingly different imo, especially if you compare it to the first game since it is the direct sequel
Apart from the fact that in DMC2 he's boring, taciturn, almost never smiles, and has almost zero personality?

On-topic: DMC2 is canon. That is a fact. Yeah, it sucked, but if there's ever a DMC5 I'd rather Capcom put aside their shame and picked up from where DMC2 left off.

1.he's boring or the game boring? and dmc1 dante is boring too for me, dmc3 and 4 dante aren't

2. i'm not familiar with the word taciturn

3. almost, he smiled tho, like manly tears, those are manly smile.. did dmc1 dante smile btw? i've litle memories of the game too

4. his personality is cool, he's a cool person :p.. and to be honest, dmc1 dante has no personality too to me..

the point is, dmc2 dante is closer to dmc1 dante, he's a more mature and calm version, so words like "how he changed that way" don't fit for me
