V might be Vergil, alright! Let me see:
-The guy in the photo seems to be Sparda ( Vergil wanted to be/replace his father)
-Technically Vergil was dead.(Maybe that" tree of life" resurrected him as a side effect?)
- The doll can be a jab at the fact Vergil was Mundus "doll".
But V can be Sparda too and the million-eyed monster is Mundus

Leads me to believe that V might be something that either came from the Devil Bringer (like Vergil for example) or he is Neros Brother (looking at that photoframe), who either surfaced or has been resurrected or something.
wowwwww.. bravo, bravo, very cool analysis..

triggers an idea it might be yamato itself, a manifestation of sword with tattoos --yeah, nope..

anyway, gotta has something to do with vergil this V character, in the DMC 5 poster he/she walks up front, followed by dante then nero.

position wise, nero is in the middle and the clearest, implying the story is nero-centric, with no vergil present --the theory he's the main villain is likely, represented by the tree

but what is his motives now? still more power? or a puppet?

V for vendetta, Vergil, or vengeance since this seems to be Nero's mission.

Based on the trailer I would speculate that Vergil is back but he's an incomplete version of himself or a shadow of who he is. So he has to collect all his power to piece himself together again. Basically Nero is his puppet in DMC4 and now that the hell gates are open/Mundus is finally merging the demon and human worlds, Vergil has come to collect so he can exact his own vengeance on Mundus, if that was ever his intention.

Or it could be that Nero bleeds to death after having his arm ripped off and everything thereafter plays out in a kind of Limbo setting. Kyrie isn't there because she's still alive, but Vergil and Dante are dead hence their presence.

I kid, I kid, that's just funny talk.

But in seriousness, I was also thinking New Guy on the Right might be Nero's brother. I'm glad someone else mentioned it before.

I think one possibility is that Vergil will return as a broken version of his former self. DMC4 says that Vergil "dies" against Mundus (DMC3), and his soul was tranformed into Nelo Angelo. For me, that seems like a likely direction for them to go into - Vergil trying to piece himself back together after being freed of Mundus' control.

Something silly just occurred to me. What if that black guy at the start was supposed to be Morrison.
Already confirmed, it is indeed Morrison.

Anyway, there's a secret message hidden in the music video.
The first line says "I have no name", but there's more beyond that and I haven't seen anybody put it together yet.

Maybe Lady's son/daughter? The character has a deep black hair.
Do we know for sure how many years are those "several years" Itsuno talks about?

PS: Hmm, if several years are, in fact, seven years, the boy can't be Lady's: in DMC4 she has no child of her own.Not only that, but the boy(which seems to be younger than Nero, by the way) is of demonic bloodline(apparently Sparda's)

Back in DMC4, enemies you pull in with Snatch will be lying down.

But in DMC5, enemies you pull in with the Devil Breaker cable will automatically be standing up, regardless whether they were lying down or not.
I can't confirm if this occurs to all/most enemies but it seems to be the case with the Hell Pride look-a-like.

This may make the game more challenging, since the enemies might immediately guard or attack you after being pulled in.
Some people may not like this because it's carried over from DmC.
Enemies in that game also stand up automatically when you draw them in with the Demon Pull.

i notice how V's clothing isn't the modern type, as in nero here, and lady in 3 and 4 modern. yeah, safe to be sure V is one of the underworld like dante and the likes.. V being tha last nephilim is a good idea to incorporate DmC btw, whatever nephilim would mean there..

and the logo still ticks me, in the trailer, right before dante with bike, the logo appeared right on nero's back, kinda like DmC dante's rebellion tattoo.. i just wish somebody could translate and analyse that better ;the two tone colors; the wings and the wings' shape; and so on.. and no, it doesnt have to mean angels

the way i remembered, the DT mode don't emphasize on wings.. same case with sparda bloodlines and the game, but i'm no expert on DMC tho..

It this third playable character is driving me crazy. All I want to know is if vergil is playable or not. If he isn't then I will be gutted. On top of that the reason I liked nero so much was because of his devil arm and that's gone to

You're talking about the guy who ripped off Nero's Devil Bringer?

Someone in Capcom Unity posted a freeze frame of the attacker's sleeve and it resembles the sleeve design of Vergil's costume from DMC3.

Foxcades video on DMC5:

Him and a friend speculate that Vergil will be dlc while V will be his own character completely.

Currently looking through all frames of the Devil Trigger video again, there is definetly more then what @Veloran posted.
Gonna take a while, still not sure if it's something substantial though.


EDIT: Well, it looks like there is something after "I have no name." A second line of text, but alas we're missing frames in there. Maybe they'll do something like that again, with another video.
There were a bunch of 1 Frame things that didn't make sense to me (from an editing standpoint, since you really don't see those weird static or color shift effects) but those led to nothing.
So, my assumption that there was more in that video is therefore debunked.
