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.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
