Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition is receiving new platform to play on, the Nintendo Switch! It was announced today that Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition is releasing on February 20, 2020.

Here is the announcement tweet from the official Devil May Cry Twitter account

Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition, which was initially known as Devil May Cry 3: Dante’s Awakening in parts of the world, is the origin story of the franchise’s main protagonist, Dante.

The game was known to be especially hard, so much so that a year after it’s release, the game received re-balancing and Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition came out. The new edition had updated the difficulty levels, added checkpoints to save a player’s progress mid-mission, introduced GOLD mode, and the ability to play Dante’s twin brother, Vergil. This is the edition coming to Nintendo Switch.

The plot takes place years before the first Devil May Cry game. The game follows a young Dante through his origin story and ends with the face-off between him and Vergil in the demonic world. Vergil wants to open a gate to the demonic realm, which will allow demons to ravage the world.

This game was loved by critics, receiving a 9.6 out of 10 from IGN, Gamespot gave it an 8.6 out of 10, and 87 percent from Metacritic.

Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition is $19.99 and is only releasing as a digital copy that can be purchased through the Nintendo eShop.

This will be the third Devil May Cry that has been featured on the Nintendo Switch.

Devil May Cry is the first appearance of the devil hunter Dante. Dante must travel to this island of Mallet, and kill the king of the underworld, Mundus. It can be bought digitally through the Nintendo eShop for $19.99, and as an added incentive, gamers will receive up to 100 Gold Points when they purchase it.

Day May Cry 2 is set after the events of Devil May Cry and follows Dante and Lucia as they work to stop the businessman Arius from summoning the demon Argosax. This game costs the same as the other two, along with the 100 Gold Points reward.

This is one of the best games in the franchise, and an excellent opportunity to convert even more Nintendo gamers into Devil May Cry fans. All it takes is for a new player to use Dante’s Devil Trigger once for them to be hooked.
