In addition to the standard game, which takes the players through the storyline of the game, all Devil May Cry games have additional content which can be accessed from the main menu.
List of ExtrasEdit
The Bloody Palace is a game mode separate from the storyline that has the player grind through enemies. It offers a change of scenery and lets the player amass Orbs outside of storyline missions. The Bloody Palace is only available in Devil May Cry 2, Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition, Devil May Cry 4 and DmC: Devil May Cry but only as downloadable content.
Costumes are cosmetic options for the player character to select from, they are unlockable upon fulfilling certain completion requirements such finishing the Bloody Palace, or beating all the missions on a high difficulty level.Some exceptional costumes do more than cosmetic changes and alter the gameplay, such as the "Super" costumes which allow for unlimited use of Devil Trigger.
The theater allows the player to view all cutscenes without having to play through the missions again. In Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition, this extra is called "Demo Digest."
The library consists of entries about various aspects of the game, from enemy files to information about combat maneuvers. They provide more in-depth explanations of items, enemies, and the like, which helps to flesh out the game universe in ways that cannot be accomplished during the missions.
Upon completion of a lower difficulty, players unlock the option to play through the story again, but against tougher opponents. Because players are allowed to keep the orbs, Items, and techniques they earned from the first play through, (with the exception of the Easy Mode in Devil May Cry,) this is very similar to a "New Game +" feature.
