Capcom Confirms Original Devil May Cry Is Coming To The Switch

Dante takes the fight to the Switch this Summer with Devil May Cry


Capcom announced on Twitter today that the original Devil May Cry will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch this Summer.

At the time of this writing, it’s unclear as to whether the game will be getting a retail release or will be confined to the Nintendo eShop. However, considering the fact the recent remaster of Onimusha: Warlords was solely digital on the Switch while the Xbox One and PS4 versions of the game were given the retail treatment, it’s anyone’s guess if Capcom will be cranking out cartridges for Devil May Cry when it ultimately finds its way to Nintendo’s handheld/console hybrid.

Created by Shinji Mikami, the mind behind Resident Evil and Dino Crisis, Devil May Cry originally released for the PlayStation 2 on August 23, 2001. The series has gone on to sell over 17 million copies worldwide. The most recent game in the series, Devil May Cry 5, launched on March 8, 2019, for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows.
