The Devil May Cry series has seen the release of seven separate soundtracks.

Pre-Release worries[edit]

Initially, Capcom was very reluctant to release an officially sanctioned soundtrack for the Devil May Cry series, due to worries that the products would sell poorly. As a means of testing the market, Capcom decided to ask for pre-release sales.[1]

After the pre-release sales were met, the Devil May Cry and Devil May Cry 2 soundtracks were released to the public on October 15, 2004.

Both were released as separate 2-disc sets, with Masami Ueda, Misao Senbongi, and Masato Koda credited as producers for the Devil May Cry soundtrack and Masato Koda, Tetsuya Shibata and Satoshi Ise credited as producers for the Devil May Cry 2 soundtrack.[2][3]
