Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition

Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition has been updated on Switch. Version 1.0.1 is out now, addressing a couple of issues.

First, Capcom addressed a bug in which Ranged Weapons’ upgrades were not applying in Free Style mode. Rare instances of save data corruption have also been fixed.

Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition can be found on the Switch eShop.

You wouldn’t be blamed for being dissatisfied with much of Capcom’s output on Switch. Many of the company’s releases are mere ports of older games that often offer little to no improvements upon their previous editions, all while being overpriced compared to other platforms. The recent ports of the first two Devil May Cry games are solid examples of that. With the third DMC port on Switch, however, Capcom has taken a different approach. This new release of Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition is more than a simple port. Rather, it features a few simple additions that completely shake up the way the game is played. For series veterans and newcomers alike, the Switch version of DMC 3 is perhaps one of the best ways to experience this action game classic.

Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition finally launches today on Nintendo Switch. Youtube channel Direct-Feed Games uploaded 15 minutes of footage from the final version:

Capcom has announced another new feature for the Switch version of Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition: weapon switching on the fly.

In the past, players were only able to switch between two ranged weapons and two melee weapons at a given time. But thanks to the new freestyle mode on Switch, it’s now possible to switch between any weapon in your inventory. The ZR button is for melee weapons while ZL is for ranged weapons. All weapons can be cycled through with these buttons. Also, if you hold either button, a radial menu will appear, which lets you pick a specific weapon with the right stick.

Here’s the full video announcement from Capcom:
