In the footage above, we get to see the William Blake-quoting V utilizing his magic abilities, which he uses to summon shadowy animals to attack. He also seems to have a strange relationship with Dante, of whom he hired for a case, thus leading to the events of the game. We also see him starting to stab Dante, wishing he’d never existed.
In a press release, Capcom states:
V may appear weak next to Nero and Dante, but he has the ability to unleash a unique fighting style that sees him summon three different demons to assist in battle. Utilizing a combination of all three demons’ powers, players can take their enemies down to the brink of death, allowing V to swing into battle and finish them off with a devastating cane attack.
Shadow: A swift, four-legged panther-like creature with savage agility that sees him change his shape into sharp blades and needles for perfectly executed close-range attacks.
Griffon: A bird-like demon possessing aerial combat skills which allows him to carry V across Red Grave City and shoot lightning bolts at enemies from up above.
Nightmare: The most powerful of V’s demons. Nightmare’s gigantic size sees him destroy enemies with just his basic attack, and he can also fire beams of light to destroy any approaching foes.
Despite their differences, V and Dante can work together with the game’s recently announced co-op play. Check out the demo now exclusively on Xbox One.
