Nearly two years ago, Capcom revealed
that they would be bringing DmC: Devil May Cry
, a game that will focus on Dante's origins, to consoles.
The game is now mere months from release, so Capcom has wisely utilized Gamescom as a space to release some details about and images of one of the title's characters, Vergil. Vergil, who is Dante's twin brother, has quite a back story of his own:Vergil is Dante’s twin brother. While Dante was put into an orphanage run by demons and ended up a street kid, Vergil was adopted into a rich, educated and very privileged home. A highly intelligent and gifted individual, he wrote a security encryption program that eventually made him a multi-millionaire before he even finished school.
Vergil hates the demons for having killed his mother and enslaved his father and uses his riches in the single minded pursuit to bring them down. Calculating and dispassionate, Vergil’s decisions are always logical, strategic and never emotional. He formed the underground organisation known as The Order to research the demons with the goal of toppling their hold over humanity.
There's more to see than just Vergil, of course:
In addition to all the screens, Capcom also released details as to the arsenal of weapons Dante will have at his disposal:-“Rebellion”: Dante’s trusted sword, given by his father Sparda, provides a great mix of combos and attacks, great for sending enemies skyward.
-“Ebony & Ivory”: These guns are good for keeping enemies at bay, maintaining combos and juggling enemies in the air.
-“Arbiter”: a demonic axe that can deliver massive blows and break through enemy shields.
-“Osiris”: an angelic scythe with fast attacks and great for crowd control.
-“Eryx”: powerful demonic gauntlets that pack enough punch to parry even the strongest attacks and juggle the heaviest enemies.
