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.
