Devil May Cry 5 Is Adding Vergil As A Playable Character (VIDEO)
A consistency within the more recent Devil May Cry games is that Vergil, like his brother Dante, is extremely fun to play as. As such, fans typically go into each new Devil May Cry game hoping that, if Vergil isn’t immediately playable, Capcom will at some point throw us a bone and add him in as post-launch content. That appears to be exactly what’s happening with Devil May Cry 5, as Capcom has recently announced that Vergil will be available as a playable character via paid-for DLC.
The exciting news comes by way of Capcom’s TGS Live 2020 presentation, wherein Devil May Cry 5 director Hideaki Itsuno and producer Matt Walker announced the DLC following a discussion on what to expect from the upcoming Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition. While the team was unable to implement many of the Special Edition’s improvements into current-gen consoles, Capcom did confirm that Vergil will still be playable on both PS4 and Xbox One. “People have been asking to play as Vergil since DMC5 came out, so I’m happy we can finally answer those requests,” Walker said.
Seen above, only about ten seconds of Vergil combat gameplay was actually shown at TGS 2020, though even just seeing him as a playable character in Devil May Cry 5 is sufficiently exciting at this point. No other information about the DLC was announced other than that it will be paid-for DLC.
Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition is slated to release on November 10 for Xbox Series X and November 12 for PlayStation 5.
