Nintendo Switch players can now join in on the Devil May Cry hype train, now that Nintendo has announced that an original Devil May Cry Switch version will be coming to the console. However, so far the other games haven’t been announced, so we may not see them, too.
Devil May Cry has experienced a resurgence in the past few months after Devil May Cry 5 finally came out in March for the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC. The game got critical acclaim and catapulted the series back into the spotlight.
The last Devil May Cry game was a reboot of it by Ninja Theory in 2013, which proved controversial with fans due to its new (and many say inferior) version of Dante, though the gameplay still received praise.
The news about the original Devil May Cry Switch version came from the official Devil May Cry 5 Twitter account, but we likely won’t know the finer details of the game for a while yet. At the same time, this is a big step forward for the series in a number of ways.
The Nintendo Switch isn’t much for character action type games. The one game it does have that fits that style is the Bayonetta series, which has been Nintendo-exclusive since Bayonetta 2 came out in 2014, barring the game getting a PC port back in 2017.
There has never been a Devil May Cry game on a Nintendo console before, and especially not on the Switch, so the original Devil May Cry Switch version is big news both for Capcom and Nintendo.
Considering Bayonetta’s move to Nintendo consoles got her into Super Smash Bros, only time will tell if Dante coming to Nintendo ends up with a similar result. In the meantime, we’ll have to wait for more information about the original Devil May Cry Switch version.
