Devil May Cry 5 is one of the most anticipated games that we saw at E3 2018 and Gamescom. We even got a recent demo and it was very impressive indeed. I talked about how I felt about the demo and what the fans had to say about it. We have now got some new footage of the game that has been leaked and it confirms that Vergil exists in the game.[Removed Image, Copyright Claim]
While we do not see the face of the character, we can see Nero’s arm turns Blue when the character is close and Nero himself can feel something. Other than that we see that the arm turns into Yamato, Vergil’s weapon. We also see that using the sword Vergil was able to open a portal. If this is not Vergil then I don’t know who that is.[Removed Image, Copyright Claim]
There is a small confusing point that we noted in the video as well. There is a big boss that we have also seen in the previous marketing material and he is referred to as the demon king. V mentions that he is the person that took his arm. We are not sure which part this is in the story but keeping in mind that Nero still does not have his Devil Trigger.[Removed Image, Copyright Claim]
We also see V and it seems that he is indeed a guy. When Itsuno was asked about whether he considered making a game with a female main character he teased that the sex of V was not revealed at the time but I think that it is safe to say that this is a guy. We can see that he carries a stick so he might be crippled in one way or another. We do not know much about the character so we will have to wait and see but it would make sense that a cripples character would have mage-like abilities. You can check out images of the character below:[Removed Image, Copyright Claim]
In the leaked Devil May Cry 5 footage we also saw Dante use his devil trigger. This is not something that we see often in a cinematic and if I recall correctly, we did not see him do this in DMC4. You could do it as a player but it never happened in a cinematic. Dante would be in real trouble if he needed to tap into his demonic form.

If you are interested in learning more about how I think Vergil was able to find Nero then you can check out my theory on that. For more information regarding Devil May Cry 5 stay tuned.
