It's so ****ing funny to me that a surprising amount of people thought it was gonna be Vergil due to the slash. I totally get it but it's proof we need Ultimate Special Edition in a few years with him
Besides, Vergil wouldn't get in over Dante first. The only chance is as you mention an Ultimate Special Edition or coming as an Echo of Dante which is unlikely to occur unless we get an Echo Pack but only if Dante is among the final 3.It's so ****ing funny to me that a surprising amount of people thought it was gonna be Vergil due to the slash.

That's true, I could see Sakurai using Sephiroth as Dante's rival for a trailer reveal. But in gameplay, not in CGI. I don't think it's coincidence that Cloud has never appeared in CGI trailers until now (because the character is Square related). Same goes for Hero, though to be fair he didn't had a lot of time and chances to appear in CGI trailers after him.Sephiroth coming in 1-shotting Galeem really fitted incredibly well with his inclusion. Here's Galeem which is one of Ultimate's World of Light main antagonists, and in comes Sephiroth to straight up bring Smash despair (good pear ). Interestingly enough, it's Sephiroth's inclusion, playstyle, his very character which leads me to believe that a character (besides Cloud) that could come in to face him is none other than Dante himself. Sephiroth shares a few traits with Vergil such as wielding a katana as his main weapon, presuming to be a deity/omnipotent life form; it would just fit very well into eventually setting up the reveal for Dante later down the Pass.
any particular reason why you feel that way instead of him appearing during the 2nd pass?I have a feeling Dante is Fighters Pass Vol. 3 (which I think is more likely than some people think). I vote he gets a double reveal with Doomguy. That would be the most rad trailer imaginable.
Vergil doesn't work as an echo unless you strip away absolutely everything or if Dante were to, for whatever reason, be based around the time he had Yamato for 5 seconds.Only played DMC5 so far so my Devil May Cry knowledge is pretty limited, but would Vergil work as a potential echo fighter for Dante? Also definitely hope Dante gets in, he's too cool to pass up.
indeed, outside of the prologue I got S ranks on every mission on my first try. Granted, I had the health and DT upgrades from my previous runs and was only playing on normal difficulty, but still.Playing as Vergil since he’s out for PC and previous Gen. Yeah he really trivializes the game just like all other versions of him but I think this incarnation is the easiest and most powerful on a basic level. Doing four judgement cuts in a row melts everything and in SDT he can JC three enemies at a time, four of you have doppelgänger out.
