Looks like nothing changes, with Dante and Vergil repeating history with another battle to the death. However, both have been powered up with Dante now fused with his father’s sword and Vergil with a fresh body and the power of the fruit consumed by Urizen. Here’s how to defeat Dante’s brother.

Vergil will open softly with a series of basic charges, judgment cut that shoots his slices a distance, rapid slash, teleportation, summoning swords, and a charge with a blue hue that causes him to impale you. Vergil is quick and defensive, the only way to land damage is after a ground pound or quickly after a charged slash. All of these are basic attacks, with Vergil almost testing you. Charge your sin DT and try to keep your health above 70%.

At half health, Vergil will access DT and start attacking with the same attacks but with more powerful and faster versions. He’ll do 2 instead of 1 ground pounds, 4 judgment cuts, 2 charges, and summon 6 swords per attack. The key here is dodging, Trickster or Royal Guard. You can attack but it’ll do nothing. During the end of the DT Vergil will use his Sin version and fly around the stage. When he’s about to hit Dante leap into the air and start aerial slashing to cut down the swords he’ll summon. At the end, Vergil will return to normal and resume his other attacks but with more options.

This time Vergil will perform 3, not 4 judgment cuts, 1 ground pound, and teleport more frequently. Like before attack only when you have an opening. Occasionally Vergil will begin to charge his most powerful attack, at this point leave the dome and wait for the attack to execute or you will die. If he summons swords around you, just like before slash them away.

The final phase is much harder as he’ll use doubleganger. Take that thing out immediately using DT but save Sin DT for the finale. After Vergil’s DT passes use sin DT to take down Vergil.
