Another post, another dose of Gamescom news. This time we have some new art and a trailer for Ninja Theory’s DmC: Devil May Cry, featuring Dante’s twin brother Vergil.
Unlike the antagonistic Vergil of the third game, this new demon slayer will be fighting alongside the main character as the leader of The Order, a mysterious organization dedicated to defeating the evil monsters unleashed upon the world. Of all the many alterations that this alternate continuity reboot has made, this might be one of the more controversial. Dante may have gotten a haircut, but Vergil doesn’t even seem to exist within the same realm as the character he shares a name with. I’m interested to see if anybody is willing to defend this new direction.
DmC will be available on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on January 15th, 2013.
