Capcom's announced that Vergil, Dante's twin brother, will be making an appearance in Ninja Theory's reboot of the action series.
Vergil first made an appearance in Devil May Cry 3, and was a playable character in the Special Edition. There's no news yet on whether he'll be playable in the forthcoming game.
The announcement headed up a striking showing for DMC, which climaxed with an extended hands-off session that had Dante heading into a stylized news studio and then fighting a thinly disguised take on notorious US anchor Bill O'Reilly.
DMC's due out early next year, with a January 15 release date. It's actually looking quite smart.
