Capcom announces Devil May Cry 3 for Switch, triple pack for Japan

by Daniel VuckovicNovember 26, 2019

Earlier this morning Capcom announced that Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition was coming to the Switch. It’ll be released on February 20th on the eShop in all regions.

They also announced today a triple pack containing the first three Devil May Cry games for Japan only. It’ll contain the first game on a cartridge and the second and third games with a download code. They have previously done this with Resident Evil on Switch as well.

If precedence sticks, then this triple pack will likely also been released in the US, but not Europe and certainly not Australia. If you were really keen at least importing is an option.

Devil May Cry 3 serves as a prequel for the iconic action series, unfolding years before the original Devil May Cry with a younger version of Dante. This origin story explores the journey leading up to and culminating in Dante’s face-off against his twin brother, Vergil, who is set on unlocking a gate to the demonic realm. Dante must use his trademark sword Rebellion and dual pistols Ebony and Ivory to stop Vergil and prevent the world from becoming infested by demons. Along the way, players will gain insight into many aspects of the series from the first encounter with fan-favorite Lady as well as the beginnings of Dante’s shop and origins of the series name.

Devil May Cry 3 continued the series’ trademark for intense, non-stop action with flair, while introducing the new “style” based combat system with six selectable options including Swordmaster and Gunslinger that change up the gameplay. Each style has its own range of features, and players can power up their favorite style for increased special attack abilities, bringing an extra level of strategy to the action.

Devil May Cry 3 also introduced the ability to switch between currently equipped weapons on the fly for additional combat freedom. Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition brings the full stylish action package to Nintendo Switch, offering the addition of Vergil as a playable character and the 9,999 floors of the “Bloody Palace” survival mode. The system’s handheld mode offers the added flexibility of playing on-the-go for the first time. Devil May Cry and Devil May Cry 2 are each currently available for digital download on Nintendo Switch for MSRP $19.99 for fans looking to get in on the stylish demon hunting action right now.

    Typical idiocy from Capcom. The three games would easily have fit on a 32GB cart (spawning separate icons for each game). And they should have released the so-called Resident Evil “Triple Pack” at a premium price on a 64GB cart (the Japanese market is more open to games more expensive than the US$60 standard, so they very well could have issued a Japan-exclusive physical release). Three AAA games on a single cartridge with no further storage requirements? Even at a premium price, it sounds like a damn good deal to me.

    As it stands, I don’t see the point in buying any of these so-called “packs” from Capcom as you will need a separate NNID for a mere handful of games. I have a Japanese account, but I use it mainly for downloading early/exclusive demos and ascertaining whether Asian/Japanese physical releases support English (and I have bought a few).
