Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition for Switch

Devil May Cry 3 is one of the most iconic character-action games of all time. The high-octane brawler has seen a number of re-releases and remasters over the years, but they’ve all mostly been graphical updates that keep the DNA of the game in-tact. Now, Devil May Cry 3 is making the leap to a new console with the release of Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition on the Nintendo Switch. Capcom isn’t just popping the same old port onto the hybrid handheld and calling it a day, though. This time, three game-changing new features are being added that are set to make this the definitive version of the game. The latest new feature revealed to be coming to the game is probably the biggest one yet – local co-op play.

Matt Walker from Capcom took to the official Devil May Cry Twitter page to announce the final new feature coming to the Nintendo Switch port of Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition. Players who clear the intro mission of the game will be able to access an all-new co-op version of the Bloody Palace mode. Here, Dante and Vergil can be controlled by two seperate players. You’re free to play with either a single Joy-Con, dual Joy-Cons, or even the Switch Pro Controller.

This new local co-op mode is also set to include the two other new features coming to the Switch version of the game – dynamic style switching and weapon switching.

The updated Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition will launch digitally for Switch on February 20, 2020. Gamers can pre-purchase it now for $19.99. North American players who pre-order will get a 50% discount on purchases of Devil May Cry and/or Devil May Cry 2.
