We’ve seen plenty of Dante from DmC, the upcoming reboot/sequel/alternate universe take on Capcom’s classic Devil May Cry, but what about Vergil, his twin brother with whom he shares his demon-fueled powers? He’s also present in the Ninja Theory-developed title, but in a very different capacity from the original games.
The Gamescom trailer, courtesy of G4, shows Vergil as the leader of The Order, the demon-fighting rebellion going against the infernal status quo. He is clearly the dapper, high-class yin to Dante’s street punk yang, and the two of them look to play off of each other, albeit in a far less volatile fashion than in games past. I’m definitely digging the subliminal messages that underlie the advertising in DmC’s world—do I detect a well-viewed copy of They Live at Ninja Theory headquarters?
DmC will be released January 15th, 2013 on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
