DMC DLC confirmed and it looks like Dante's brother is back in the mix
DLC detailing Vergil's story coming alongside the game.
Those of you that have played the previous installments of the Devil May Cry series, may well be in for treat. A potentially time bending, chronological nightmare of a treat, but a treat nonetheless. Capcom is rolling out the DLC early this time around, bringing us "Vergil's Downfall", said to be a "brand new chapter of the DmC Devil May Cry adventure". As of yet there have been no details about the DLC's plot line, but the observant fan may draw some confusing conclusions. For more on that, read the spoilers and community feedback starred (*like this*) below.
All we know is that it tells the untold story of Dante's twin brother Vergil. It will include 4 difficulty levels and hours of new gameplay, weapons, combos, enemies and locations. Vergil’s Downfall will be available shortly after launch for 720 MS points and €8.99 / £7.29 on PlayStation Network. Keep your eyes open and look out for more details coming soon regarding the European pre-order initiatives. DmC (Devil May Cry) arrives on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on the 15th January across North America and Europe, with a PC version shortly after.
Thus far, as you would expect, the internet and the fans are divided. So here are my thoughts. The trailer clearly depicts Vergil with his hair down over his eyes, last seen in Devil May Cry 3, in which he does battle with Dante. As you know, Vergil remains in hell to fight the demon king Mundus so he can claim Hell as his own domain. Vergil is defeated and enslaved as the armoured warrior "Nelo Angelo".
Now, given the fact that in the trailer Vergil is fighting with a style and weapon set very similar to DMC3, and in the same attire as DMC3, it's not unreasonable to think that this is DLC in which we follow the story of "Vergils Downfall", ie: His decent into a near mind wiped slave state. But this all takes place in the DMC3 Cannon, not that of the reboot. Supposition? Or legitimate reasoning? The comment section is for you let us here your thoughts!
