Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition announced for Switch, coming Febuary 20th, 2020

Capcom has revealed that Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition is headed to a Switch near you, with a digital release planned for Nintendo's hybrid machine. You won't have too long to wait before you can get your hands on it either, as it's set to launch on 20th February 2020.

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-favourite 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."

Capcom is continuing there Switch porting of old games. Weird the Switch didn't just get the collection. Anyone getting this when it launches? I'll probably wait for a sale.

Now time for RE7

Funny that they requested more RAM be placed into the Switch in order for this game and its engine be doable on the Switch. Nintendo complied and then they never ported it. Though made it streamable in Japan. At this point, Capcom seem to be not interested in doing current Gen ports.

Capcom despite being Japanese had some of the weakest support for the system.

They've done a good job with providing the switch with a good amount of prior gen ports. The pricing of them hasn't always been the best. They also call everyone of them a test, which is dumb. But current gen support has been absolutely pitiful.

"Weird the Switch didn't just get the collection."

Not really, that means they can sel you four games instead of one.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

I feel like a pretty good version of RE2 (2019) is doable on the Switch as well. It looks great but not really that demanding. Give me that and RE7 and I'll buy them both again.
As for DMC, I loved the series at one point but I don't see myself every going back. I even have DMC5 on my Xbox One X (thanks, Gamepass!) and I haven't even tried it. It may be better than Bayonetta (which I love!) but I've moved on.

Yay, yet another decrepit, ancient regurgitation from Crapcom.

I swear they're run by fanboys with a raging irrational hate boner for Nintendo, their Switch support is beyond pathetic given the system is one of the fastest selling ever.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series X will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

It's just money. And in some cases, like this one, they seem unreasonably greedy.

There's a DMC 1-3 HD collection on PS3/360. Porting it over to Switch should not be difficult to the point where it warrants splitting them up into individual games again.
I think they're just doing this in hopes of exploiting people who have never played the DMC series before. Because people that have the HD collection already are probably not buying this.

I get them being greedy and wanting an exploitative cash grab, that's par for the AAA publisher course. What pisses me off is that they refuse to bring anything to Switch that's not ancient leftovers from previous gen machines despite it proving time and again it can handle modern games and selling on par with PS4. (Or significantly better in Japan)
