* Looks like the plan was to originally have V be a woman before they decided to change that

** Apparently they explicitly went out of their way to avoid Nico looking like Cindy from FFXV and more like Winry from Full Metal Alchemist.

OT but Itsuno and Matt answered a few questions at the DMC5 panel with one of them being "What's your favourite most recent non-Capcom game?". They both replied with Breath of the Wild!

It's so weird that their concept arts made the characters look all brooding and menacing XD

Like, we know all three characters have a sense of humor lol

A female V would have been amazing but yeah, it wouldn't fly story wise.
I suppose that's why they didn't go that route (though the implications of Vergil's human half being a woman would be interesting), but I hope they revisit the idea of a female V-type character at some point.

Damn shame we didn't get female V. That being said at least they landed on the current design for male V instead of some of those early designs.

Maybe they can reuse a variant of the female V design as a way to keep V's summoner moveset around in future DMC games since V turned out to be Vergil's human half.
I hope they do this if they make DMC6. V's gameplay has a lot of potential so I'd hate to see it just die out without them giving it a second shot.

And hey, since V is gone. A woman playable character with V's moveset is still possible. Do iiiiiiiit

I know it’s expensive to have garments made for this engine, but...I’m still disappointed we did t get any costume alts. Those Nero and V ones are mostly great.

Some of those concepts reminded me of Gilver, hah. I quite like some of them and I like the idea of a female summoner to maybe replace V in the future too.

As much as people say they wanted Female V i can highly see it being shit on for being the
"Weaker" Human side of Vergil

Sucks that we couldn't have Brown Nico tho

Female V looked decent. DMC doesn’t really have a female character that looks like that. V concepts also gave me a castlevania feeling

Female V would have been a super cool idea although I could also see some of the complaints/talking points that eventually would have come up.

I would really like a definitive artbook for DMC5. There is most certainly more of this.

Nico was potentially going to be black??? Awww.
Also...hilaroius how they say they apparently went out of their way to make her not look like Cindy when that is specifically who I always think of when I see nico lol. Did they go into details as to how they tried to achieve that??? As far as I'm concerned this misfired completely

Yeah same. Love the design but in the context of the story I much prefer with them going with the male version

Female V would be an excellent on the nose way of presenting
Virgil with extreme mother issues.

I mean, Nico is already half black considering that she's Agnus' daughter (correct me if I'm mistaken about Agnus being black). And correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't her model biracial? With that said, I do agree that Nico having a darker skin tone would have been awesome.

The model is half white and half Malaysian. The voice actor is white. Agnus just looks like a tanned white dude
