Its time to slay the Seven Hells Army once more, as Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition will be released on the Nintendo Switch on February 20th, 2020.
Capcom promises to bring 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. Handheld mode offers the added flexibility of playing on-the-go for the first time.
The game will retail for $19.99 / £15.00 / €19.99. This will be the same price as Devil May Cry 1 & 2 which are already on the e-shop now. Not a good deal when you consider you can buy the Devil May Cry HD Collection on PS4 for £14.99, but I guess you can’t take your PS4 onto the train, so there’s that. (We’re not saying it can’t be done, but you’ve got to admit its a bit impractical). It also isn’t a surprise that the games are quite expensive on the Nintendo Switch, considering Capcom also released Resident Evil 0, 1, 4, 5 & 6 for £29.99 each when they can be found on other platforms, usually for £10-15 each.
If you’ve never played Devil May Cry 3 or just need a bit of a reminder, here’s what Capcom had to say:
“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.”
