Vergil invades DmC: Devil May Cry

Vergil, Dante’s twin brother, has been confirmed for DmC: Devil May Cry. In the Ninja Theory-helmed reboot, Vergil is the leader of The Order, an organisation that prides itself on annihilating demons for the safety of all humanity. Plus, he has a real personal beef against demons ever since they destroyed his family.

Here’s the official description:

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.

DmC: Devil May Cry will release for Xbox 360 and PS3 in January. Expect a delay for the PC version.
