Just a few days after we learned about this particularly exciting gameplay upgrade, a new crop of footage from a recent livestream by Capcom yielded a glorious look at how Style Switching will function in the Switch’s upcoming Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition. The video below is a long one, but it shows that Style Switching will work without a hitch in the port.
If you are out of the loop on what Style Switching is and why it’s important to Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition, let the words of our own Art Damian clear your confusion:
For those unaware, DMC3 introduced Styles to the series. Dante could utilize up to six different Styles throughout his adventure, from modes like Swordmaster (buffs his melee attacks) to Royal Guard (buffs his defense). Players could only choose one Style at a time, either at the beginning of a mission or at a Divinity Statue in the middle of one. The demon slayer could later switch these Styles on the fly in DMC4 and DMC5. Now, Capcom is adding this Free Style exclusively to the Switch version of 3.
Style Switching plays a big role in the fluid, varied approaches to violence and mayhem in later games from the popular series. Now, instead of being locked into one style for half of each level, players are only a tap on the d-pad away from enjoying the same liberties with Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition on Switch.
