In DmC Devil May Cry, Vergil Is A Gifted Multi-Millionaire That Hates Demons

By Ishaan . August 14, 2012 . 3:38am

 

Earlier tonight, Capcom revealed at Gamescom that Dante’s brother, Vergil, would be in DmC Devil May Cry. Now, we have a few more details on Ninja Theory’s take on the character.

 

Vergil is still Dante’s twin brother in the new series. While Dante was admitted to an orphanage run by demons as a child, Vergil was adopted into a rich family. Highly-gifted, Vergil wrote a security encryption program that made him a multi-millionaire before he was even out of school.

 

Vergil’s parents both suffered at the hands of demons, which is something he intends to take revenge on them for. His mother was killed at their hands while his father has been enslaved by them. He now uses his wealth in order to research and combat demons, and is described as calculating character that makes strategic decisions without letting emotions get in the way.

 

In order to do this, Vergil established The Order, which Dante’s female partner in DmC, Kat, is part of. Vergil happens to be the previously mentioned head of this organization.

 

DmC Devil May Cry will be released on January 15th, 2013, for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. A PC version is in development, too, and will follow later in the year.

    Virge looks kinda… scary lol. It looks like they just took Dante’s face and got rid of some of the details. Essentially, he looks like the PS2 equivalent of this Dante’s face lol.

    In any case, I’m liking his personality. A new take was precisely what I wanted out of NT, and I got it. There are still some suitably Vergil touches to him though. “What else were you planning on doing with your life?” I like him. And still having Yamato is great.

    • Go2hell66

      i like vergil’s new look, not as awesome as the old one, but it could work.

      but once i saw the trailer, gawd the new vergil is soooooo lame….
      not an ounce of badassery in him, personality-wise i hate him

      i miss “Evil, wants to kill everyone” Vergil T_T

      • Domii

        How do you know that Vergil won’t become evil later on in the game?

      • Solomon_Kano

        I feel it would’ve been lamer had they just copied and pasted him into this new world. Not visually, of course, but it would’ve been boring seeing NT try to do an imitation of the old Virgil. Especially against a whole new Dante.

        IGN spoiled his look for me though. Somebody said he looks like Matt Damon and now I can’t shake the image lol.

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/EnvyMizuhashi Garyuu of Spades

         You know Vergil bears more hatred for demons than Dante in the original, right? It’s part of his twisted mentality to just rule them all “like Sparda did.” Apparently you haven’t watched enough movies to know that this Vergil will become just as twisted later. lol

  • LustEnvy

    I just wanna say, this game is looking AMAZING. Dante looks GREAT now. Virge too. I can’t wait.

  • Domii

    This just keeps getting better and better. I’ve reach such a high level of anticipation for this game that I think my head is going to explode. Now, hopefully Capcom lets us play with Vergil in his own story arc.

  • Luna Kazemaru

    Both of them look alright to me.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Stephen-Mc-Devitt/100002626261475 Stephen Mc Devitt

    I knew Vergil would be on the rich-side. Does he have white hair there. Possibly a reference to how in 3, Vergil has Devil Trigger before Dante.

    Dante is sounding more like Nathan Drake.

  • Go2hell66

    anyone’s who’s played dmc3 is gonna hate that vergil

    • Solomon_Kano

      Vergil was my favorite character from the entirety of the old series, and I’m actually liking him here. I wouldn’t have wanted them to try and ape the old Vergil, because they’d have failed. He also would’ve been odd to see in the face of a completely different Dante — both visually and personality-wise.

    • Luna Kazemaru

       Played and love DMC3 and Have no issue with this.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/EnvyMizuhashi Garyuu of Spades

       *Played DMC3*

      I don’t know what you’re talking about. :)

    • Kaihedgie

      I play DMC3 more than the other games and I already like Vergil. He’s at least acting like Sparda instead of in the previous game he was just some prick trying to mooch off of him and really, Vergil in that game tried to emulate him to the point of slicking his hair back. And at least here, he reacts like a real person, actually being surprised and happy to see his brother alive as opposed to just wanting to slit his throat just so he can get some more power.

    • kevinposta

       Actually agreeing here.
      This is a complete 180 on the stablished character, even outside the design.

      • Solomon_Kano

        It’s supposed to be. This is meant to be a different take, after all.

        • kevinposta

          Thing is, it doesn’t feel like a different take. It feels like a completely different character with absolutely no relationship outside the name.
          I’m having huge Bomberman Zero vibes here.

    • http://www.facebook.com/nicholas.gatewood Nicholas Gatewood

       I played through each DMC game except DMC2. I really like this Vergil, muchmuch more than old Vergil. I pretty much like everything I’ve seen in this game more than in the old titles. I just wish the fanbase would stop being bitchy about it, they’re almost as bad as the Silent Hill fans over this game.

  • XiaomuArisu

    Im beginning to like this game….Co-op mode would be fun.

  • Muffum

    That backstory. It’s like I’m really back on fanfiction.net!

    • Asura

      Eh, about as equally cheesy as the backstory of practically any superhero to ever exist.

  • farios

    He looks awfully a lot like Ozymandias from Watchmen

  • http://www.facebook.com/JaeWhy SasuleUchiha

    This looks so great.
    Still, I hope the gameplay delivers.

  • gaiahatergaia

    Is it just me or is the Japanized DMC we all know got turned into some westernized crapity crap?

    • Luna Kazemaru

       *insert me laughing at this comment only to laugh even harder reading it again*

      • gaiahatergaia

        Why you laughing at my comment? ;l

    • Asura

      I think it’s more along the lines of Japany crapity crap got turned into Westerny crapity crap.

      Real question is how much the combat suffered, because that’s all that made DMC not crap to play. This story looks much better than the garbage of the actual DMCs, but not nearly good enough to warrant a game with lackluster combat.

    • Anon-non

      this actually looks like something a japanese developer would make. if this was my first time hearing about this game and first time watching the trailer, id think so. i think all this hate comes from this subconcious hatred of western games, not just from you but everybody else and even myself. gamers that play japanese games like to victimize ourselves because our favourite games are never top sellers in the US. you think they’ve westernized it? you’re lucky it’s not a first-person shooter.

      • Nemesis_Dawn

        But I don’t have a hatred of Western games. I love God of War. I love Uncharted. I love Mass Effect. But they have their place and so does Japanese gaming. It’s entirely possible a Western team could have made a great Devil May Cry game. It’s obvious, though, that Ninja Theory are not that team.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Nicholas-Wilder/100002008494048 Nicholas Wilder

    Hmm I don’t dislike the new Vergil, but his dialouge was rather corny. Not really trying to be negative but this game has some ugh dialouge from what Ive heard in the trailers and the plot seems to be summer blockbuster-ish(not that DMC was known for its plot).

    On a more positive note, I think the stages look pretty great and I don’t think they’d make me feel like I’m fighting in a monochrome box.

    • Asura

       I agree with the dialogue corn. Which is very sad because the delivery is great.

  • Spirit Macardi

    He’s clearly not voiced by the Quantum Time Force Ranger anymore…

  • Spider-Man

    He looks pretty decent. If they really are twins, I wonder if Donte really did dye his hair. Or Maybe Vergil is in a permanent Devil Trigger. Fascinating, totally giving this game a rental. I’m already more interested in this game’s story than with DMC2/4′s.

    • Solomon_Kano

      I doubt he dies his hair. That would make his Devil Trigger completely stupid if his hair was naturally white.

      As someone else suggested, his brother’s hair being white may be a nod to Vergil in DMC3 having mastered his Devil Trigger before Dante. Here DT manifests in their hair being white so, yea, a permanent Devil Trigger sounds likely.

      Actually, scratch all that. If you look at the trailer again, their hair is the same color in the picture of them as kids. So Vergil’s hair is naturally white and Dante’s is naturally black. So now I’ve gotta wonder wtf Vergil’s Devil Trigger looks like. If it’s black hair I’m going to lol.

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/EnvyMizuhashi Garyuu of Spades

         You do remember Dante showing shades of white hair, right? His hair turns naturally white when in Devil Trigger. So having permanent white hair means you’ve grown accustomed to your demon blood. I knew Vergil was going have full white hair because of that, and perhaps his Devil Trigger will be the real deal: a full-on demon form the likes of the original DMC. At least I hope so. lol

        • Solomon_Kano

          It better be a full on demon. It can’t get any whiter! lol. I figured his white hair meant he was accustomed to his demonic side too, but then… that picture kinda throws me off lol. He was accustomed to it his whole life? Tough kid lol.

          • http://www.youtube.com/user/EnvyMizuhashi Garyuu of Spades

            “Might controls everything.” That’s Vergil for you. lol

      • Spider-Man

        Just watched the trailer again. I’m assuming the two adults in the picture are Sparda and Eva. Sparda seems to have white hair, and Eva has black hair. 

        For some reason, I don’t trust Vergil when I watch this trailer. Maybe he has an ulterior motive? Instead of wanting to save humankind, he wants to take out Mundus so he can rule? That’s the kind of vibe I’m getting when watching this trailer. 

        • Solomon_Kano

          Yea, he feels like a traitor lol. Especially at the end when they walk towards the camera. It’s a small thing, but he waits for Dante to turn around before he starts walking too. IT’S A TRAP. D: But, no, he really does seem shifty lol.

  • Freud_Hater

    Hah, a rich pretty-boy who’s cold and calculating. That is such an original character design! Good job, Ninja Theory! /sarcasm

    Don’t you just love those child-geniuses that become rich in their young years thanks to some obscure, never really explained creation of theirs? ‘cuz I don’t…

    • CudaBiro

      It’s really not much different than how you can dilute Dante down to a half-monster fighting other monsters with his weaker human side making him superior to them all.

      • Asura

         Dilute? That and a cocky attitude was all Dante had in the past DMC games.

        • Spirit Macardi

          And it was wonderful~<3

  • http://www.facebook.com/Asch91 Mohsin Faiq

    WHAT THE HELL
    ugh, there’s no way i’m playing this game now, good job ninja theory

  • SirRichard

    I know it’s meant to be a trailer showing off Vergil and his interactions with Dante and all, but all through the trailer I just kept getting bothered by Dante’s voice. They’re trying to go for serious, maybe shocked a bit here and there, but it just sounds emotionally flat all the time. The actual script ain’t a winner, either.

    As for Vergil, it isn’t as dramatic a change as Dante’s and I quite like his voice. All riding on that script, though.

  • Valtiel Ikari

    wait, so Vergil is Bruce Wayne!? so his devil trigger will be dressing in batman armor?

  • rinalicat

    I kinda miss the old sadistic Vergil; the Bruce Wayne Vergil kinda has me unsure of his true intentions at times (I keep thinking he will betray Dante and Kat at some point…) I don’t like the…I’m gonna say “positive” Vergil. I’m still buying this game though; the combat looks great and I’m in a mood for killing some demons!

  • Nemesis_Dawn

    Well, I do have to give them credit for actually showing something I don’t 100% hate about the game. I kinda like him. Unfortunately, he’s not the main character and we still have to play as this utter tool shed of a Dante, so unless the demo for this makes me think this is the greatest game in the history of mankind, I will not be picking this up.

  • Göran Isacson

    “The world is asleep, or helpless, or brainwashed… or fighting back.” One of these things is not like the other.

    THAT MINOR NITPICK ASIDE- okay, I’m game. I truly am, because this is pretty much what I speculated from the get-go and I will admit that I am intrigued as to where they will take this relationship. Will Vergil betray Dante somehow? Will we see a rethread of the story that we’re already familiar with, or something new? Something more complex? Showing that Dante is more than the unpleasant punk we saw in the first couple trailers has gone a long way to make me more hyped by this title- now I just hope the same can apply to Virgil.

    I am kinda confused as to how Vergils hair is already white though- sign that he’s awakened his demon/angel heritage? Sign that he’s untrustworthy? Perhaps. But if we CAN get a game with both brothers actually working together, well… I for one shan’t complain. Much. As long as there’s SOME of the originals cheesy humor, not just cheesy dialogue.

    • Solomon_Kano

      Well, if Virgil’s hair is white for any special reason then he’s a damn prodigy or something. When you see the picture of him and Dante as kids his hair’s already white.

      • Akarnage

        I though Dante’s hair was white and he dyed it black? Or is that not a thing anymore?

        • Solomon_Kano

          Huh. I hadn’t heard of anything like that but, going from this trailer, he’s apparently had black hair since he was a kid.

      • Göran Isacson

        Huh, totally missed that, thanks for pointing it out.

        • Solomon_Kano

          No prob.

  • Gaara D.Dragon

    Kill it with fire. But brind the zyklon b just in case it survives.

    • Luna Kazemaru

       -_-X

  • ivanchu77

    Meh, I like dante and Vergil old designs much more than the current ones

    • gaiahatergaia

      You don’t say.

    • Domii

      Really……?

  • Wake

    I’m really excited for this game. But Vergil looking like Michael Fassbender especially at that 1:36 mark? Triple SOLD.

    • Solomon_Kano

      So I’m not the only one who saw some Fassbender in him? Beyond looks, Virgil also kinda reminded me of him as Magneto in First Class.

      • Wake

        Yeah man. The eventual white hair of Magento. The whole “With the two of us working together…” line of Vergil. The conflicting ideology near the end of the trailer. I can definitely feel that Magneto vibe.

    Was Dante using “ifrit”?

    • Kris

      Looked like it, or at least something similar! I’m hoping that’ll be available in the build they bring to PAX…

  • Cephrien

    That’s really awesome that Vergil’s in this– but couldn’t they at LEAST give him his prick personality? :c

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jonathan-Ingram/100002032335254 Jonathan Ingram

    This game is looking more and more like a live action adaption that tries to preserve the gameplay but not the characters…   It looks fun but it has nothing for myself and many others.

    Sorry everyone, but I can’t just accept this.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Carlo-Mercado/1283946291 Carlo Mercado

      ok.. your lost if this game is good.. sucks to be too attached with the previous games, i thought only girls has that kind of sentimentality hehe :)

        Maybe it’ll be good, I don’t know. If it is I’ll just buy it used.

      • Asura

         What’s the joke here? How did you even find that funny?

        Just stupid misogyny.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Carlo-Mercado/1283946291 Carlo Mercado

          what i found funny is that some gamers being too attached to the old dante to the point they’ll not play a game just for changing him(were not even sure how different he is except for the looks).is the reason too much attachment? im the fan of the old games but you dont see me complaining, whats the difference of me from other gamers? did i played a different game? i just dont get it..

    • Tee Niitris

      I get exactly what you’re saying.

      This does give me “DMC: The Live Action” vibes and we know how that usually turns out.

  • TWILTHERO

    Meh, Vergil looks alright (acts kinda weird in the trailer though), but I’ll miss Daniel Southworth’s voice…

  • Juuu

    I think Vergil’s redesign fared a little better than Dante’s. The story definitely seems to be going in an interesting direction, but I can’t shake the feel that it would’ve been better as a new IP, where they wouldn’t be tied down by fan expectations and existing storylines/mythology. Yes, it is a reboot, but a reboot in name only seems silly to me. I suppose that’s a sad reality of today’s game industry; new IPs just can’t work, best get name recognition however you can. I’m interested in seeing more on Kat, though. 

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    Vergil was almost the opposite of regular Vergil in the trailer. I hope that, as good brothers they are, Dante and Vergil have at least a fight.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/EnvyMizuhashi Garyuu of Spades

      Vergil here should…should be the same Vergil, only different. Like Harvey Dent said: you either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.

  • $30632660

    Why does Vergil look like the main antagonist from Never Back Down?

    This is a videogame equivalent to Dragon Ball Evolution, which already had its own videogame.

    Am I living in some strange alternate reality? Or am I just being Punked? Ashton Kutcher come out!

  • enorka miho

    I.. I… 

    This..

    Sigh.. I am just dumbfounded… 

    Sorry, when you say its a remake or whatever it is.. Expectations are always there.. And this seriously kills my hope.. I am alright with Dante.. But why did they make Vergil into a playboy…  well more like an airhead?! I duno.. He use to be smart, elegant and cool..

    • Kaihedgie

      You didn’t read the article, did you?

      • enorka miho

        Duh…

        And you don’t get it do you?.. He looks like an airhead and a playboy… Which has got nothing to do with his background.. Period.

        • Kaihedgie

          “But why did they make Vergil into a playboy…  well more like an airhead?! I duno.. He use to be smart, elegant and cool..” Right there you claimed he lost all of his so-called “cleverness” wherever that was in the original games and apparently ignored the fact that he’s suppose to be cunning and clever in this game.

          • enorka miho

            what people claim them to be does not necessarily reflect on what they really show…  And I will stand firm on my own statement… Whereby they did make him into or in this case, -since you like precision- looks like a playboy despite saying he is clever and what not.. I really do not understand what is the point of you nit picking here though..  Just in case you did not notice there are times when words are not as literal as you think it is..

            Also, please do not tell me to finish the game before I comment, I had seen far too many trailers, given many chances to many things, to have come to this conclusion that minutes of trailers really does shows allot of information.. And yes, this version of vergil lacks too much luster to back the story up..

          • Kaihedgie

            Even though you’ve not once sampled the game yourself or have even seen Vergil in action yet? Watch as many trailers as you please; watching isn’t the same as playing.

            Also, DMC was never savvy on the storyline anyway, so I don’t understand what the fuss is about outside of a few appearance changes

          • enorka miho

            You do not know me and vice versa.. We have different ways of evaluating something…. Besides, I am speaking base on my own experience after knowing very well of my own preferences.. Because I’d hold on to the  “if you have never played before you never know what its going to be” notion before, but after trying them out, ends up that they are not to my liking at all.. Which is a total waste of money…Hence, I had learn to pick things up from trailers..

            So yea, if you like it, thats that.. But please do have the courtesy of not criticising others just because they have different views than you do.. Everyone has their own limit of acceptance.. And we are free to voice out our negative input as long as its not personal attacks towards the creator…

          • Kaihedgie

            If it’s “not to your liking”, then why do you still bother knowing full you well you don’t like the game even having after apparently playing it before?

            Usually when I don’t like something, I don’t bother with it anymore. I pay it no mind and go somewhere else, I don’t go to every single thing about it and comment on how much I dislike it.

          • enorka miho

            Lol… that is practically your choice though.. And why does everyone has to be the same? I mean, we are free to voice it out as long as its not verbal abuse… So yea.. Take it or leave it.. And since my comment is not to your liking as well, you can choose to ignore it too… ;)

          • Kaihedgie

             I’m not asking for everyone to “be the same”, I’m just questioning as to why you’re giving your undivided attention and taking the time to voice an opinion about something you’ve, for a while now, established that you dislike.

  • Anon-non

    If Capcom announced that this was all a publicity stunt, that this was made internally at Capcom Japan, and that ‘the West’ had nothing to do with it, you guys would totally eat this up.

    talks too much to be vergil. =/

    • Kaihedgie

      Implying the original Vergil didn’t talk at all?

      “WHY ISN’T THIS WORKING”

      “Time for the clown to bow out, Arkham”

      “Shut up”

      Vergil was always a talker, especially towards his brother. This isn’t any different.

      • gaiahatergaia

        (S)he said he talks in this one TOO much, and even if he did talk in DMC3, he had that “cool” and dark aura.

        • Kaihedgie

           I dunno, he sounded kinda funny, not to mention a bit cheesy at times. Besides, I half expect him to shout QUANTUM POWER

        • Asura

           “Cool and dark aura”?

          You mean he was emo.

      • heartless141

         he did talk in DMC, but by no mean he keep the conversation going.
        he get straight to the point, keep his lines sharp, just like his blade.

        • Kaihedgie

           “I was so eager to see you I…couldn’t concentrate on preparations for the batch”

          Vergil’s my favorite character but geez louise, you guys act like he’s Batman or something

          • heartless141

             if it was this vergil that says that line,
            it’d be like
            “you are my brother, brother, i was looking forward to see you. sorry i couldn’t prepare a better feast.”
            or something like that.

    PEOPLE WHO HAVE LOTS OF MONEY ARE BAD, LET’S KILL THEM

    • Godmars

       Or rather people who make money for the sake of money at the expense of others are bad. If not oblivious of their actions. Will never learn from their mistakes until the mob comes for them, which by then of course will be too late.

      • M’iau M’iaut

        This assumes that the ‘mob’ with all this anti-west bile displayed here really is some kind of vast unwashed majority. I see plenty of folks here still willing to approach the game with something approaching an open mind, and I am sure plenty other readers will just buy and enjoy.

        • Godmars

          Talking about the underlying theme of the game. The 1% richest dictating the lives of the other 99% allegory?  Has nothing to do with gamers reaction to this “reboot”.
           
          At least, that’s what I though gatitsu911 was addressing.

          • M’iau M’iaut

            Accepted, but it also seems a pretty good allegory for most of the cr*pcom hate being tossed around the thread as well. :P

  • Godmars

    All I’m getting is a douche vibe.

    The old Vergil came off like DBZ’s Vageta. Obviously not good, but someone you could respect. Someone who fought for the sake of fighting, to get stronger, and yet didn’t fight unless he had to. 

    • Nemesis_Dawn

      Nu-Dante certainly gives off a douche vibe, but I don’t get it as much from Vergil as from him.

    • LynxAmali

      Either it’s just me or the roles have been reversed, what with Dante having the douche aspect.

    • Kris

      Old Vergil was great because he was an asshole. He wasn’t exactly worthy of respect, willing to stab his brother, kill the people working for him, and open up the demon world that his father sealed off.

      He respected his own weaponry and was willing to work with Dante for the greater good, but not really anything like you described. 

      • Godmars

         Not exactly calling Vageta a good guy. Definitely talking about his early A-hole phase.

    Why is Vergil now a stone-faced Wesker with a slightly altered and tinged-blue outfit, holding a Katana?

  • kupomogli

    So is Vergil supposed to look like someone also?  Maybe the assistant director, or the lead designer, or possibly the director’s son.  Because, sure he’s got white hair, but where is the cool looking Vergil at.

    Where is everyone’s “but if Dante had white hair the face would look exactly the same.”  So Vergil’s face looks the same as his old one?  Not one bit.  Dante’s face doesn’t look like old Dante’s either, despite what people will falsely try and claim.

    The voices fit with what the characters look like, but they don’t have a unique look about them. I’ve seen people who are pretty much lookalikes of this version of Vergil. Would rather have a character look unique than look like one of the more generic faces in society.

      Michael Fassbender, maybe? XD

    so when does S.E.E.S fight all the shadows? I’m really looking forward to seeing Mitsuru—

      Made my day. Thank you! 8D :3
      Let me guess….did you by any chance play the new Persona 4 Arena game? XD

  • Cjs0511

    If you people hate it so much and don’t want to play it, why are you even commenting on it?

    • Kaihedgie

       It’ll apparently amount to something…like the creators of the game bending to their every whim.

    • MrKappa

      Maybe because people have the right to say what they want about whatever they want?
      Maybe you live in some hell hole so I guess people expressing their opinion even about things they dislike is foreign to you.

      • M’iau M’iaut

        I think there just might be plenty of folks here who are just done with seeing the same sets of whines and rants from the same sets of folks on each and every DMC thread. It is almost as if they are doing nothing but cutting and pasting venom from what is now over a year ago.

        Having a differing opinion is fine, but by now we well know what a few folks think about neo-dante and Tameem. Those kinds of posts do nothing but inflame and anger everyone involved, something we do wish to keep off the site.

      • Domii

        The thing is that at this point, you either deal with it or gtfo. Constant whining does not bring constructive conversations to DMC threads.   

        • Ultimaniacx4

          And continuing arguments with random, hateful insults does?  Oh, the hypocrisy.

          • Domii

            Nobody is arguing, im just telling it like it is. There’s a lot of us who are looking forward to this game and would like to have a good thread to talk about the game. Just like M’iau said, it’s been over a year now of constant trolling and whining. When will people just get over it?

          • Ultimaniacx4

            Continuing Arguments.  Hypocrisy.  You say the words “whiny pathetic gamers” and don’t expect more arguing?  You can’t understand why people can’t get over it yet you can’t get over the fact that they can’t get over it.  Take your own advice and stop replying to the threads or else you’re just a hypocrite. There’s plenty of other comments here talking about the game that don’t hate it. Pay attention to those, ignore the others. If you can’t do that then you’re no different than the people who can’t not pay attention to the new design.

          • Domii

            @ultimaniac
            If calling out whiners and trolls make me a hypocrite, then so be it. It’s time to take out my sword and shield because from now on I’m going troll hunting in DmC threads.

          • M’iau M’iaut

            Domii, please note the new set of rules I have linked to in the thread (also on the front of the Open Thread). We want an environment friendly to all, including those who are able to discuss DmC ‘issues’ without repeating or angry posts.

            Thank you however, for being active and concerned.

          • Ultimaniacx4

            Turning into a troll yourself.  Why should anyone listen to someone who is fighting with people who are basically themselves?

      • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

        Or perhaps because he lives in a place where people speak and act on reason and courtesy, and not out of pure instinct, that he’s foreign to irrational behavior? Gotta consider all the possibilities~

    • Godmars

      Because for the worthlessness of it?

      If it sells well Capcom wont give a damn about the complaints, will feel justified, and if it doesn’t they’ll just cancel the franchise. Because they lack the in-house talent to bring old Dante back.

      Its lose-lose, so why not bitch about it?

      • Kris

        The DMC3/4 team is mostly still at Capcom, and some of them are working on this. Considering they brought Dante back from 2 (and that DmC is pretty damn fun, from what I’ve played), I’d wait until you’ve played the game until you whine about the death of the franchise.

  • Akarnage

    As excited as I am for this game, I just have to say that this Vergil… doesn’t feel like Vergil. He’s worried about the humans, for one.

    Here’s hoping at one point Vergil backstabs Dante or something.

    Actually, scratch that. He IS going to do it, I’m calling it now.

  • Godmars

    Old Vergil: “I need to get to the Demon World to fight badasses better than me to prove to myself I’m a better fighter then you are. Could not care less that in doing so I’ll destroy the Human world.

    I will NEVER say all that directly. Will mostly speak through badass action. Uber-smooth badass action.”

    New Vergil: “Hi. I want to take over the world but someone else beat me too it. I’m a lazy slime ball who wants others to do all of the heavy lifting, beat the other bad guy, so I can come and swoop in at the last minute becoming the main bad guy. I pretend to care about the useless peons under me who I toss into the grinder but obviously not really. I want you to trust me and do as I say.

    And I will NEVER shut up.”

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/GFQYYWFUR2SBFLKIITVECS5NAI Erik

    I smell betrayal so thick that you can cut it out.

  • DongT

    new virgil looks alright i suppose, other than the fact he’s holding a katana he looks a little tlo jock-ish. i liked the old stone face virgil more who spoke in a cold, emotionless tone. “you won’t forget this devil’s power”

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_DIZJRBFSHRAEUIPHL2AZQR73RU Dedan

    mckayla is not impressed. 

  • ZBaksh386

     I like vergil’s look even if I’m not a fan of the facial area. I can’t tell from this trailer but do they even look alike?

    They might be fraternal twins then which isnt the same so they were better off being non twins.

    his VA sounded like Yuri Lowthenlal who is a profilic VA.

    the end of the trailer hinted Vergil and Dante dont exactly trust each other so we might see Vergi’s fall from grace as it were.

    DMC3 had vergil already jumping off the cliff, this will show us how he got there and why he went over.

    I hope its explained how Vergil managed to escape Dante’s fate of
    orphanages and brainwashing. I’m not sure about his upbringing as it
    makes him seems Batman-ish.

  • http://ggftw.com/forum/ Monkey_T

    I seriously want to know who wrote this script.
    The dialogue is filled with cheese.

    • Kris

      I’ve heard it’s Alex Garland, writer of 28 Days Later, Enslaved, and some other stuff I can’t remember.

      • http://twitter.com/Yugo19 Yugo19

        It was the director Tameem Antonaides himself that wrote the script. Alex Garland wrote Enslaved and he has nothing to do with this game.

        • Kris

          Gotcha! I was curious about that. Apparently Garland is just acting as a story consultant, but Antoniades is the main writer. 
          http://heavenlynariko.wordpress.com/tag/alex-garland/

          • xAKUM3TSUx

            Of course (troll face) I mean he has to write the story for the game he’s the star of lolz…get it?…No?….I’ll shut up (@_@)

    • Luna Kazemaru

       the dialogue has been full of cheese since dmc 3 lol thats nothing new.

      • http://kanpekijan.blogspot.com/ KanpekiJan

        Yeah, but the cheese back then was good! Back then it was meant to be cheesy and it fit the games. But this tries to take the gritty route and it doesn’t work…

    • MrRobbyM

      DMC/DmC and cheese go hand-in-hand.

  • eilegz

    this its disgusting…. this new vergil looks like a blonde pussy kappa =/

    as i said before dante and vergil lack of the badass actitude and look from previous incarnations….

    the history could be great, the gameplay could be ok but why use devil may cry when it feel so FAR from it….

    • M’iau M’iaut

      Sir, we are long beyond the time of this line of venom. 

      This is a reset/relaunch/reboot/reimagine/restart, we all know that by now. That means things are not necessarily as they were before. 

  • Chippel

    These guys look a heck of a lot like John Stamos and Bob Saget to me (two of the main dudes in Full House). I’m a little disturbed.

    • Spirit Macardi

      Oh my god, you’re right O_O

      I KNEW those designs looked familiar, I just didn’t guess that it was from a sub-par 90s sitcom.

      • SuperSailorV

         Sub-par?! You must’ve been born in the 90′s, philistine!

        • Spirit Macardi

          I was born in the tail end of the eighties. And sorry, but that show was crap x3

        • Jirin

          When you’re 10, it’s a good show.  When you’re a grownup, it and every sitcom that followed it is just plain awful.  Shows that are all about relationships but whose take on relationships is driven entirely by 90′s political correctness, and characters terrified of life changes who turn down career advancement just not to have to be away from their friends for a few months. *shudder*

    • MrRobbyM

      Well, that ruined it for me.

  • Ultimaniacx4

    I knew it!  I saw this design coming a mile away. Prim and proper business man type.  Just what I said here   http://www.siliconera.com/2012/08/14/yes-virgil-is-in-dmc-devil-may-cry/    when it was announced that he’d be in it.

          I request that you refrain from offensive language, user; this isn’t the first time you said something like this either. I’m not saying your top post in this sub-thread is objectable; it’s just because throwing insults back and forth doesn’t help the situation, if not make things worse – which is why we have rules against it.

          • Ultimaniacx4

             I apologize but I think this is the first time I’ve ever said something like this here.  My experience with this site has been generally positive and friendly and this is the first time someone has ever snapped at me for no reason so I snapped back.  I’ll be careful from now on.

  • http://www.facebook.com/cbosak1 Christopher A. Bosak

    I was hoping that Daniel southworth would voice Vergil as he did in the Awesome DMC3 for PS2. I was also hoping for Reuben Langdon to voice Dante, as no one else to me is the voice of the true Dante. 

    • Tien Ron

      it’s a new spin for devil may cry, why would they use the same voices when their completely different characters. 

  • M’iau M’iaut

    Folks, I am posting this here for everyone’s notice. We have updated our posting and general behavior rules. Please be aware they will be carried forward from this point on. Thank you for your understanding.

        Wanna make a bet? I’ve got no hesitation in me, personally. And you should take a look at this (entire) sub-thread too, while you’re at it – if you want a grasp of the real situation here.

        I have more trust in our community than you, kind Sir. Banned.

    • Kaihedgie

       I really wish SRK had this for their Disqus as well.

      • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

        Good suggestion, but it might be harder for them to pull it off, particularly if they haven’t been moderating strictly before. A sudden set of strong restrictions probably might not work out as intended…

        • Kaihedgie

           If any site needs moderation, it’s them. You literally cannot post any positive comment about Capcom without at least three people harping on you or calling you a sellout/bought out/fanboy/slave etc.

          • Zonder88

            Man you’re pathetic.

            If anything needs moderation there, its your constant idiotic “Why are you posting” replies that you love to copy paste 6 times in every article.

            I love how you act like you’re a victim there because nobody likes you and yet you’re the one who’s constantly instigating flame wars with your idiotic posts.

            Now if you’ll excuse me, we’ll continue hating on things that warrants hating. Oh and DmC isnt one of them. Game looks pretty sick.

          Okay, that really sounded hypocritical. Really, I’d say let SRK figure out the new rules themselves.

    • Domii

      Thanks. I think enforcing the DmC threads is the only way to get all this venom out. As someone who’s really looking forward to this game, I will like nothing more than to have nice positive discussions about this game on these threads.

    • MrRobbyM

      This WOULD be posted in a DmC article lol.

          which is the same as dmc3

            And? It still means Capcom is making this. NT is just helping.

       Not really, when you’re raising kids to feel and act as if they were demons. Or extract demon blood from people like Dante. Orphanages are often hell on earth anyway.

  • SLick123456789111

    Ha.
    CapComedy is the best comedy.

  • Syn

    Hope Virgil becomes more cold and ruthless as the story goes on, but otherwise, I will give this a chance, miss the old Virgil but hey, change is inevitable. However, if this game falls through, Capcom should get Platinum games to do the next DMC, after all, the father of DMC works there……….and they made Bayonetta which(in my opinion) in terms of gameplay was the path DMC should have taken..faster, more complex, and and all the more crazy and insane.

  • MrRobbyM

    I can’t say I didn’t expect this but I am a bit disappointed with Vergil’s design. Not to say I don’t like him. I’m really liking their relationship and it sees interesting.
