DMC: Devil May Cry Trophy Guide

March 29, 2013 Written by Richard Duflo

Welcome to PlayStation LifeStyle’s trophy guide for DmC, Ninja Theory’s reboot of the Devil May Cry series. There are 38 bronze, 7 silvers, 3 golds and 1 platinum. Achieving the platinum trophy will require you to play through the game at least 6 times. If you miss a chapter specific trophy, don’t worry, you can use chapter select to go back and get them. Six playthroughs may sound like a lot, but it really isn’t that bad. You will get better with each completion. Good luck!

Completion is for collecting all the keys, opening doors, and freeing all lost souls. You must get 100% of the collectibles in a mission to earn the SSS rank on a mission. Restarting checkpoints and dying hurts your score. Super Dante cannot be used either.
