Capcom has already brought the first two Devil May Cry titles to the Nintendo Switch and the third entry is coming in the near future.
Capcom has officially announced that Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition will arrive on Nintendo’s platform digitally via the Nintendo eShop on February 20, 2020. The game will be priced at $19.99. A trilogy release at retail has been announced for Japan only at this time and the cartridge will only come with the first game and you’ll have to download the other two.
Devil May Cry 3 serves as a prequel for the iconic action series, unfolding years before the original Devil May Cry with a younger version of Dante. This origin story explores the journey leading up to and culminating in Dante’s face-off against his twin brother, Vergil, who is set on unlocking a gate to the demonic realm. Dante must use his trademark sword Rebellion and dual pistols Ebony and Ivory to stop Vergil and prevent the world from becoming infested by demons. Along the way, players will gain insight into many aspects of the series from the first encounter with fan-favorite Lady as well as the beginnings of Dante’s shop and origins of the series name.
Devil May Cry 3 continued the series’ trademark for intense, non-stop action with flair, while introducing the new “style”-based combat system with six selectable options including Swordmaster and Gunslinger that change up the gameplay. Each style has its own range of features, and players can power up their favorite style for increased special attack abilities, bringing an extra level of strategy to the action. Devil May Cry 3 also introduced the ability to switch between currently equipped weapons on the fly for additional combat freedom.
Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition brings the full stylish action package to Nintendo Switch, offering the addition of Vergil as a playable character and the 9,999 floors of the “Bloody Palace” survival mode. The system’s handheld mode offers the added flexibility of playing on-the-go for the first time.
