New Features On A Old Favorite
One special feature of this new addition to the Devil May Cry franchise is the ability to switch between combat styles on the fly. Players start with four combat styles and may gain another two as they progress. This feature allows for fluid combat and new stylish combos. Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition also offers 9,999 floors of the “Bloody Palace” in survival mode. The Switch offers the option for players to play the game in a handheld mode for portability, which has never been offered before.
A New Plot And A New Playable Character
Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition is a prequel for the series. The prequel takes place long before the original story and focuses on the relationship between Dante and his twin brother, Vergil, who will also be a playable character. The game primarily focuses on Dante, however, and players will get to use his iconic dual pistols Ebony and Ivory, as well as, his sword Rebellion. Dante’s goal is to stop Vergil from unlocking a demonic gate and unleashing demons upon the world. The game offers new lore, including information about Dante’s first encounter with the fan-favorite Lady and the origins of Dante’s infamous shop.
The new game is available for pre-purchase in the Nintendo eShop for the Nintendo Switch for $19.99. A preview of the new gameplay feature will be shown via live stream on Devil May Cry social media channels.
