Maybe if they did what Meg suggested with the story (go on a new adventure not related to the old games) but still did explain what happened to Vergil at the same time. I could live with that.

I was fond of him coming back as a ghost. It allows a different side of him to emerge because he doesnt have his strength to fall back on.

That’s all well and good. And I do appreciate your opinion. I liked DmC Vergil myself, but he might not be everyone’s cup of tea. Anyways, we’re here to discuss Vergil from the original Devil May Cry series. So if you aren’t a fan of DmC Vergil (which is fine) then you won’t have to worry about that because original DMC Vergil will be in DMCV and that’s who and what we’re talking about.
''So if you aren’t a fan of DmC Vergil (which is fine) then you won’t have to worry about that''???
i dont say that you say that Vergil is fine i think Dmc is not Dmc without Vergil DMC5 needs Dante Vergil Nero i think

When was this a thing?
Uhm. Have you been paying attention? From DMC, to DMC3.

Vergil in DMC WAS was supposed to be dead. We all know that DMC3 is the prequel, you (Dante) killed Vergil in DMC3. At least that's what we understand, he was thrown into the abyss of hell.

This... doesn't really answer my question though?

In 3 Vergil isn't killed by Dante, he's defeated and chooses to stay in the Demon World, where he encounters Mundus and is subsequently defeated and corrupted into the Nelo Angelo Dante fights in 1 and is finally killed, with his corpse being recovered by the Order who used them to create the Bianco and Alto Angelo's in 4.

Which brings me to my main point of if that figure in the trailer really is Vergil, then how did he miraculously come back to life? I am genuinely curious as if handled poorly then it could make the concept of death irrelevant and break any narrative tension.

Good enough. I do remember that, I thought that the ending of DMC3 showed Dante thrusting his sword into Vergil, and that's how I remember "he was killed." But the rest of your paragraph proves that Vergil was able to corrupt himself into different forms. In DMC3, Arkham was able to corrupt into Sparda for a brief few seconds, then tries to hardness the power of Sparda. In both stories, a Sparda lives, or the powers that once inhabits Sparda is still present. In DMC, you even meet a silhouette of Mundus in one of the final battles. In this battle, you are in an entirely different plane of existance. (I checked wikipedia to refresh my memory.)

So, if you can go to a different plane of existance, which I presume is the bridge between the demon world and the human world. I would say the angel world since the stage shows a few angel-like statues or silhouette - not sure which one, but I do remember wings in there.
Which brings me to my main point of if that figure in the trailer really is Vergil, then how did he miraculously come back to life? I am genuinely curious as if handled poorly then it could make the concept of death irrelevant and break any narrative tension.
If Vergil was locked into Hell on his choosing in DMC3, and in DMC, you fight a corrupted version of Vergil... There's a possibility that he could be alive somewhere in the storyline. I'm not quite sure if Nelo Angelo is actually the physical form of Vergil.

All of this should be explained in the new game. Seriously, the prequel is a good game, but it makes the timeline a little confusing. I'm even questioning whether Mundus is actually alive or dead. My bet is alive.

I'd be ok with him picking up a scythe because it would fit his "grim reaper vibe".

In the leak he goes by V which is a rather unimaginative nickname and commands other demons to fight for him. I wasn't fond of the latter but it reminded me of how DmC Vergil uses his Doppelgangers.

PS. V could easily not be Vergil as they could throw in a red herring. Just a disclaimer.

I'm ok with him coming back but it depends on the how he comes back and what he does afterwards.

Nothing about DMC1 makes me think that Vergil ever died. Everything in that cutscene matches up with prior cutscenes where he flies away.

Personally, I hope they go with the direction that he's recovering from having been under Mundus's control. If he's a puppet again in this one, that'll be boring imo.
