The OG Devil May Cry Is Coming To Nintendo Switch This Year

Out of left field, Capcom has announced that they will be bringing Devil May Cry (yes, just the original) to the Nintendo Switch in the American Summer. That’s sometime in the mid-year, mind you.

Not much more has been revealed, though it’s a bit weird to not include Devil May Cry 2 and 3 as they have been traditionally sold together as a package since 2012. Perhaps they’ll be sold separately at a later date?

This is also the first time that Devil May Cry will hit a Nintendo system, though the game was rumoured to come to the DS many years ago, that never eventuated.

I still enjoy the first Devil May Cry personally, though as I mentioned in my review it is starting to show its age: –

The first game, Devil May Cry, began life as a Resident Evil title before being quickly repurposed into something else when Capcom realised it was a bit too out there for the franchise. It shows – the game favours backtracking more than any of the other Devil May Cry games while also featuring a combat system that’s much slower. That’s not to say it’s bad, just that future games amp the speed up considerably.  The game is bordering 17 years old now and is easily showing it’s age the most of the three games included in the remaster.

I’m never one to look a gift horse in the mouth, but let’s hope this means Devil May Cry 3 will be ported over at some point too.

More as it develops.
