Devil May Cry fans have another little bit of fan service to look forward to in Ninja Theory's DmC reboot with the news out of Gamescom 2012 that Dante's twin brother Vergil will be a character in the game. Capcom revealed the first details during its annual press conference, and now Siliconera is here to fill in a few more fact.
It seems that Vergil doesn't share his bro's upbringing in a demon-run orphanage, having been raised instead by a wealthy family. The more pleasant childhood allows Vergil to really take advantage of his natural gifts, to the point that he's a self-made multi-millionaire before even finishing school.
Vergil has a bone to pick with demon-kind, a grudge born out of the fact that they killed his mother and enslaved his father (presumably his adoptive parents). He uses his immense wealth to that end, looking into new ways of taking on the demons and establishing The Order, the organization that the previously revealed character Kat is a member of.
