Devil May Cry 3 on Switch Introduces Style Switching

Switch on the Switch.

When Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition releases on Nintendo Switch next month, it'll pack in a few new features. Style Switching is being introduced to the Switch port of Capcom's game.

Style Switching works similarly to the more recent Devil May Cry 5. In the Special Edition of Devil May Cry 3, you'll be able to switch between styles as Dante by using the d-pad on the Switch. Press up for Trickster, down for Royal Guard, left for Gunslinger, and right for Swordmaster.

Back in the original Devil May Cry 3, you could focus on levelling up one style at a time. Now in the re-release on the Switch, you can level up all four styles simultaneously by simply switching between them on the fly.

It should be noted that this was the announcement that the Devil May Cry Twitter account was teasing for January 16. It just so happened that a Nintendo Direct focused on a new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fighter was announced for the same day, so there were those thinking that Dante or another Devil May Cry character were going to be announced for the fighting game. Unfortunately for you, Dante fans, this isn't the case.

Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition releases February 20, 2020 for the Nintendo Switch. It'll retail for $19.99, and to check out a preview of the Style Switching update, tune in to Capcom's Twitch channel tomorrow on January 17.
