Capcom has a very special announcement that I’m so excited about, I posted literally after watching the trailer for it. Say what you will about Ninja Theory, but they are playing it smart here. They aren’t just featuring Vergil in the next game, he has his own section of the game via future DLC (hold your comments about on disc DLC please).
Capitalizing off the success of Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition, “Vergil’s Downfall” features a section where you will be able to play as Vergil, and he controls very differently than Dante. Dare I say better? We shall have to wait and see. This will tell his story and how he got to be where he is, in relation to the new story being told in DmC. Also, this section will feature four different difficulty settings with it, for those looking for just the right challenge. I’ll give you all some time to watch the trailer for this announcement before continuing here.
Now, I did say hold those comments about on disc DLC. Knowing Capcom, it’s probably on there. The good part however, is that if you pre-order the game from GameStop, you get this sweet piece of DLC for free! So, if you plan on getting this game, or are even thinking about it, get out there and pre-order. There is no date confirmed for this as of yet, but at least you lock yourself in for when it rolls out, if you pre-order. Did I mention to pre-order? You have no right to complain about said DLC on disc when you could have taken action to get it for free. Just saying.
You can look forward to your standard crazy stylish action game on January 15th, 2013.
UPDATE: The price for “Vergil’s Downfall” (if you don’t pre-order) is $8.99. Also, what I kept poking fun at with Capcom is confirmed not true, via Brett Elston (Senior Online Community Manager, Capcom Unity).
