It looks like we get to add one more to the growing list of titles coming to the Switch next year as we have a solid date for the Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition to hit the platform. Okay, it is not the latest and greatest that Capcom has to offer with the fifth game having been so recent, but it is something that long-time fans can look forward to. More for those fans that want to have a solid way to play Devil May Cry while on the go, as it will only run you $19.99 USD and be out there digitally on February 20th of 2020. I am guessing that they wanted to go with the 2's thing for a reason…?
It currently does not sound like there is much changing for this version of Devil May Cry 3 from the past versions, besides the new platform, and everything sadly. I mean, outside of the usual bundling of all of the updates and everything in one spat and maybe shifting things for the new hardware. At the very least you can see some of the screenshots for the Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition just below and prepare yourself for how the game is going to look on the smaller and larger screens. It is a good day to be on the hunt for classic titles I am guessing.
Stylishly Slay the Seven Hells army and experience the infamous demon-hunter Dante’s origin story in the fan-favorite stylish action game Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition, available for digital download on the Nintendo Switch system on February 20, 2020 for MSRP $19.99.
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.
Are you jazzed to see that Devil May Cry 3 will be heading over to the Switch or will you be leaving it in the digital store for now? Do you think that we could see more of the recent titles make it over or will we only get these classic ones?
