Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition for Switch includes seamless style switching

Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition on the Nintendo Switch will incorporate the dynamic style switching from Devil May Cry 4.

In a developer post earlier this week, Capcom revealed the new feature. Fans of the title’s trademark intense, non-stop action will have the ability to seamlessly switch combat styles on the fly when the game launches for Nintendo Switch on February 20.

The newly confirmed seamless style switch option allows players to choose between the six combat styles in the game, four of which are available to start and two more which are unlocked as players progress. This new gameplay feature will offer more fluid combat options and create opportunities for exciting new combos.

According to Capcom, style switching will be a piece of cake:

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.

Devil May Cry 3 was originally released as a PS2 exclusive back in 2005 and ported to PC in 2006. The hack and slash game is considered one of the best games released on PS2. It was re-released as part of the Devil May Cry HD Collection for PS3 and Xbox 360. However, the Switch version is the first to include dynamic style switching.
