As you may know already, Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition is coming to Nintendo Switch on February 20… and you may also have heard from producer Matt Walker that we’re packing a couple of little extra “somethings” in this version of the game. Now’s time to start unveiling these new features and see how they’ll change the way you play this masterpiece action game!

Introducing new feature #1: Style Switching!

Devil May Cry 3 was the first in the series to introduce the Style System, allowing you to pick between 6 different styles (4 to start, and 2 unlocked later) at the start of each Mission or at a Divinity Statue. The Style System was kicked into high gear in Devil May Cry 4, which introduced dynamic Style Switching during combat with a click of each of the d-pad buttons. Since we know DMC3 Special Edition holds a special place in everyone’s hearts, we set out to make it even extra SSSpecial this time around, and borrowed that new trick from DMC4.

Switch to Gunslinger in mid-air and rain down bullets on unsuspecting demons.

Style Switching in DMC3 Special Edition (Nintendo Switch) will work just like you’d expect. Press UP for Trickster, DOWN for Royal Guard, LEFT for Gunslinger and RIGHT for Swordmaster. For the special styles unlocked later in the game, it’ll require a quick double-tap of specific buttons. For Doppelganger, double-tap LEFT, and for Quicksilver, double-tap RIGHT.

Leveling up the main 4 styles is also akin to the original DMC3 release, but with the added advantage that you can work on leveling up multiple styles almost simultaneously!

Pretty neat, right? If you want to see this in action, tune in to our live stream TOMORROW, January 16 at starting at 2pm PST / 5pm EST / 10pm GMT. check out our live stream recording here:

And friendly reminder to keep January 30th and February 13th marked on your calendars for the next extra feature reveals.

Switch to Swordmaster to perform unique attacks from your melee weapons.

Keep it SSStylish!
