Yes, Vergil Is In DmC Devil May Cry

By Ishaan . August 14, 2012 . 2:15am

Capcom USA are conducting a presentation at the Gamescom conference in Cologne,Germany as we speak, and just confirmed that Dante’s brother, Vergil, will “also star” in DmC Devil May Cry.


Capcom USA say: “Though they meet as friends, the trailer suggests conflicting methods right away.” New assets for the game will be released shortly, so you don’t have long to wait until you can see developer Ninja Theory’s interpretation of the character.


DmC Devil May Cry will be released on January 15th, 2013 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in North America. A PC release will follow at a later date. While you wait, check out our interview with the game’s developers. We discussed combat and what Capcom learnt from Ninja Theory.

    Holy smokes… this is HUGE news… one which I’m sure a lot of people are gonna whine about. Me, I can’t wait to see how Virge looks in this game.

  • Code

    Looking forward to seeing the design larger and more visible >3<; He does look rather unchanged considering what Dante's went through though o3o; But it's hard to tell at the moment.

    • LustEnvy

      Uh, that’s an old DMC3 image. edit: nvm, mistake

      • Code This image >o> I know the one above is from DMC3 obviously >w___<;

        • LustEnvy

           My bad. He looks awesome already!

          • Code

            Yeah I was getting the link and fixing up my original post when you replied >w<; Sometimes I do that~ I'd really like to see a larger picture though, it's hard to make out his face.

        • z_merquise

          Vergil looked like something that won’t cause a sh!tstorm of angry comments. Now I’m excited to see how he exactly look once they made an official reveal.

        • Solomon_Kano

          Aaaand he still has Yamato. Yes. Dante might’ve been iffy at first, but NT has a resounding win with me on Virge.

  • French

    I wonder if they will butcher his character like they did Dante, I wanna hear/see more news on this

  • Solomon_Kano

    YESSS! Exactly who I wanted to see return!

    Turns out he actually is the leader of The Order too. Interesting. My excitement for this game just went back up a bit.

  • from the pic he doesn’t look emo, there’s something wrong.

    • MrKappa

      That’s because that is DMC3 Vergil. Expect DmC Vergil to look as ugly as Donte, they are suppose to be twins after all. Unless that had been changed and I haven’t heard.

      • Asura

        I haven’t seen new Vergil, but if you’re saying Vergil doesn’t look emo in the picture Siliconera used of DMC3 Virgil, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

        It’s freaking three-quarter profile with dynamic shadowing, and a stern expression with cold eyes and even FREAKIN RAIN in the background. That picture is practically the definition of emo. Sasuke from Naruto may as well have taken a direct cue (not sure if the chapters around 200 came out prior to DMC3, but if they came out after he did take a direct cue. Otherwise Vergil took a cue from Sasuke).

  • Ultimaniacx4

     now watch him be some kind of prim and proper business man type….

  • margherita mastropaolo

    this game looks awful i’ll boicott it and i hope others do the same

    • Asura

      Is “boicotting” something related to all-boy bands?

      • Luna Kazemaru

         Must have a hidden message in it bro.

      • Solomon_Kano

        Boicotting…  sounds like waterboarding.

    • Luna Kazemaru

      LOL that grammar and I love it how you assume everyone will do the same tho.

    • Domii

      I summon the Ban Hammer on you sir. 

    • ThatBlackGuy

      lol I really hope you’re not serious.

  • Go2hell66

    he looks better than dante, but i still can’t help but feel this is still worse than the original dmc3 character design, but from the trailer descriptions i’ve read it looks like this game could turn out pretty good, this game hasn’t really grabbed my attention until now.

    • Asura

      -accidental reply

  • Asura

    If this Vergil’s hair was black and slightly altered, yet his face remained completely unchanged from what it currently is (hell, if they just pasted his DMC3 face in and remastered it, though honestly that won’t work as DMC3 faces look like minimalistic faces sculpted from porcelain or something), people would freak out and rage.

    Design-wise it’s hair that causes 75% of the hate.

    EDIT: Yes, pictures of new Vergil are out. If somebody responds to this post as “that image is DMC3 Vergil” I will facepalm.

    EDIT2: Complaints about character (as in, personality and whatnot) will totally be about how Vergil seems totally different in tons of ways though. His voice actor is really good though. Hell, all the voice acting (of people) is really good, despite the dialogue being filled with lots of cheese. I momentarily forgot the cheese even because the VAs did a good job (at least in the recent trailer).

    Complaints in character are unfounded though as Capcom seemed to have solidified themselves in calling this a reboot. Complaints about characters not being the same is not a real complaint. It would fall under the position of “I don’t want a reboot of DMC.”

    • revivegamesrise23

      its not black bro, trust me iv’e seen him.

  • Luna Kazemaru
  • Domii

    Hell yeah!!! I can’t wait to see Vergil in action in this new take on DMC. Maybe this time they’ll make him playable with his own story arc, unlike DMC3 SE.

  • Oni123

    Who didn’t see this coming =O? not really keen on the new look but it’s worth a shot. I’m curious to see what Vergil looks like

  • Peace Legacy

    I forgot this game even existed :/

    • Nemesis_Dawn

      I wish I could.

  • Valtiel Ikari

    hope they don’t ruin this.
    It’s practically imposible to ruin Vergil, but hey, looking at what they done so far, I will probably be dissapointed…
    So when will whe get an announcement of the regular universe?

    • ZBaksh386

       maybe during captivate 2013?
