I am liking Nero's new look, and am certainly intrigued to what the story
might be.

That being said, although its "normal" for Dante to age, I don't understand :
according to Capcom DMC2 (still canon last I checked) is the last game in the
franchise story-wise. So if it still is, Dante looking much older now compared
to how he looks in that game does need some explaining.

Then again, they very poorly forced Nero to be related to Dante (by having
Vergil uncharacteristically bone someone). So they may just not care for their
game's plot at this point.

Pretty sure something had Dante, as son of Sparda as immortal or extremely long lived. It doesn’t make sense, really.

You can classically have the age until peak physical for, and then stop aging kind of thing, but DMC2 is supposed to be after, and Dante was more powerful and still the same age compared to normal. They must’ve retconned stuff or we can wait and see

It's been a while for me but the chronological order is 3, 1, 4, 2?  Is that correct?

I only played 2 once because it was horrible.

I wonder if 2 is even canon, it was done by different people according to an interview I read, and putting it last chronologically was really a throwaway statement to avoid dealing with it's ending (Dante going into hell).  Factor in that it's the most hated one and my personal guess is it doesn't count at all anymore.

If they wanted to incorporate it, however, then older hobo Dante could be the results of Dante going into hell at the end of 2.  So you'd have the order now be:

3, 1, 4, 2, 5
