Play-Asia has opened pre-orders for the Devil May Cry Triple Pack. You can reserve the collection here.

Currently exclusive to Japan, the Devil May Cry Triple Pack contains the first game on a cartridge and the two subsequent titles as digital downloads. That means you’ll likely need to redeem Devil May Cry 2 and Devil May Cry 3 from the eShop. However, all three games are expected to have English support.
