Capcom’s drip-feed of DmC games on Nintendo Switch continues with the Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition.

Dante’s origin story is finally coming to Nintendo Switch with the release of Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition on February 20, 2020.

Although the game is included as part of the Devil May Cry HD Collection on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC, Switch owners will once again have to make do with a solo edition. It’s getting a digital release on the Nintendo eShop priced at $19.99 / £15.99 / €19.99.

Devil May Cry 3 acts as a prequel for the series and features a younger version of protagonist Dante. The game follows his battle with twin brother Vergil, who is also included in Special Edition as a playable character. The package also includes the 9,999-floor Bloody Palace survival mode.

Hopefully, Capcom will release the fourth entry in the series, 2008’s Devil May Cry 4, on Switch at some point and bundle the entire collection together. Let us know what you think of the piecemeal release strategy on Twitter and Facebook.
