Devil May Cry games have always been something that fans get undoubtedly excited for and with good reason. Each game has always had a compelling storyline than most overly anticipated games out now and if you combine that with its badass gameplay mechanics, you’re got the perfect entertainment with instant repeatability.

Devil May 5, the latest game in the series, was no different in that aspect and so when the Special Edition of the game got announced, it wasn’t surprising at all. However, one thing I never could understand is why does Capcom always throw in Vergil as a playable character in these editions? 

I mean it’s a great way to get gamers to buy the game due to his popularity but come on, Vergil deserves a game of his own already by now!

Vergil being a badass with next-gen.

After the announcement of Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition, we have been craving for more reveals of gameplay utilizing the power of next-generation consoles. At last, the Game Gods have heard our pleas and have granted a reprieve through IGN! Earlier today, IGN shared a 4K gameplay video on Youtube that showed off Vergil in all of his glory.

In the video, we get to see Vergil combating against adversaries with his iconic Yamato, Bewolf gauntlets and as well as the new Mirage Edge. For the most part, his combat skills look pretty much the things that we are familiar with; however, there is an intriguing component added to Virgil this time around.

Below the health bar, there is a purple bar like hud called Concentration, that rewards players for playing Virgil the way he is as a person such as calm, collected, precise and not running around like his brother Dante in a battle. So for example, walking slowly towards enemies, dodging at the last minute and making precise attacks will contribute to the overall Concentration bar to increase, and thus increasing your damage input.

Another interesting bit in the video is how fast the game loads! The loading times on the PS5 between stages seems to be non-existent, which makes the whole game feel like just one long journey. This upgrade is going to make my life so difficult since I’ll never be able to put my controller down to take a break between load times!

Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition is currently available for pre-order for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
