Let’s Rock! Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition Out Now on Switch

Today's the Dante!

This party is getting crazy, because Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition is now available for digital download on the Nintendo Switch™ system for MSRP $19.99.

The Nintendo Switch release of DMC3SE introduces the brand new Free Style Mode, which allows players to instantly switch between combat styles and weapons on the fly to unleash some truly SSStylish combos. Free Style Mode allows players to choose between all six combat styles in the game, four of which are available to start and two more which are unlocked as players progress. In addition to the standard weapon cycling system, all unlocked weapons can be quickly selected using a radial menu. Players can also now choose to cut a path through each floor of the “Bloody Palace” survival mode in local co-op right after creating a save file.

DMC3SE brings the complete stylish action experience to Nintendo Switch, detailing the origins of infamous demon hunter Dante’s “Devil May Cry” shop, and long-running rivalry with his twin brother Vergil. DMC3SE includes the option to play as Dante’s twin brother, Vergil, as well as all 9,999 floors of the “Bloody Palace,” survival mode. The Nintendo Switch system’s handheld mode also offers the added flexibility of playing DMC3SE on-the-go for the first time.

About Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition for Nintendo Switch:

Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition serves as a prequel for the iconic action series, unfolding years before the original Devil May Cry. This origin story explores the journey leading up to and culminating in Dante’s face-off against his twin brother, Vergil. Dante must use his trademark sword Rebellion and dual pistols Ebony and Ivory to stop Vergil from unlocking a gate to the demonic realm and infesting the world with 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 titular shop.

Capcom explains why weapon-switching features made their way into Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition

Switching on Switch

Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition on Switch includes a handful of new features, one of which is the ability to switch combat styles on the fly. In an interview with USGamer, Capcom's Matt Walker talks about why this feature found its way into the Switch port.

...it's mostly by design that you couldn't switch styles on the fly in DMC 3. While there are certainly hardcore players who are amazing at the game, Itsuno-san felt that you needed to ease players into the concept. In DMC 4 they added that ability to change on the fly for the first time, but part of the reason you play as Dante later, both in that game and in DMC 5, is so that a player can first ease themselves into the combat and gameplay of the game as Nero, and then have access to Dante with his dizzying array of options after you have your bearings.

Hopefully, with DMC 3: SE on Switch, we've struck a balance by making Free Style Mode an option at the beginning. People who aren't accustomed to these kinds of action games can start off in Classic Mode, and then players can choose Free Style Mode to give themselves a new way to enjoy the game once they're comfortable with the gameplay.

Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition to include local co-op for Bloody Palace

Bloody brilliant!

Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition producer Matt Walker has revealed the last new tidbit about the Switch port. This version of the game is going to include local co-op for the Bloody Palace mode, letting players team up as Dante and Virgil. This is available after you play the intro mission of the game.

When playing, you'll be able to use any combo of controllers you want, including single Joy-Con for each player. This mode will include different save data for both Dante and Virgil, and you can save different controller customization options for each player.

The Bloody Palace is single-elimination tournament that pits the player character against many groups of enemies and bosses, each on a lower floor, until they reach the end of the Palace. The palace has 9999 floors, and completing it with either character will grant you a super costume.

Thanks to Dondom95 for the heads up!
