Completed in 1320, the Divine Comedy is one of the most renowned opuses of world literature; written by the Italian poet Dante Alighieri, this poem tells the long voyage across the three realms of the other world: Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven. Accompanied by the Latin poet Virgil, Dante travels far and wide to reach the supreme sight of God himself.
Providing also an allegory of the human soul journey towards the eternal bliss of the celestial kingdom; the Divine Comedy inspired thousands of artists that through the centuries created their own version of this universally beloved work.
From Dan Brown’s Inferno to Bayonetta the human world is full of (more or less) veiled references about it not only in literature or films, but also in music, visual arts, architecture, animation, and needless to say video games.
The first game in which recreates faithfully the allegorical journey of the medieval poet is Dante’s Inferno for Commodore 64; in this arcade adventure game, the player controls a man that must reach the Purgatory. Circle after circle, puzzle after puzzle the protagonist will be able to atone for the sins and gain the needed purity to leave the hell forever. Anyway, the most SSStylish version of Dante & Vergil is without any doubt the legendary Devil May Cry!
Created by Hideki Kamiya, and originally released for PlayStation 2 in 2001; Devil May Cry is an action hack and slash series deeply indebted with the Dante Alighieri’s opus, showing the post-modern versions not only of the two main characters, but also of Virgil (Vergil), Beatrice Portinari (Trish), Saint Lucy (Lucia), Satan (Trismagia), the Minotaur (Furiataurus), Geryon, Cerberus, and many other minor demons from the nine circles.
