The Nintendo Switch version of Devil May Cry 3see dealDevil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening – PlayStation 2 (Special)$15.55on Amazon will have a new Style Change system.
This is what Capcom states over on the official Devil May Cry 3 website. Most revealing is a screenshot which shows a new UI feature in the top-left that displays which fighting style is currently selected.
This wasn't the case in the original version of Devil May Cry 3 as you chose the fighting style before you went into a mission. This addition to the UI matches up to how Devil May Cry 4 and Devil May Cry 5 handled switching styles on the fly.
So, for example, in the original Devil May Cry 3 you chose Swordmaster before a mission then had to stick with it. But this new UI in the Switch version suggests that you'll be able to change between Swordmaster, Gunslinger, and the other fighting styles at the press of a button – even in mid-combo.
This changes up how the combat works in the game significantly as the fighting styles have certain moves attached to them. Plus, you can level up the different styles and tailor them to your preferred fighting style.
If this is how the Style Change system works in the Switch version of Devil May Cry 3 then it's a feature that's exclusive to Nintendo's platform.
Devil May Cry 3 is due out for Nintendo Switch as a digital download only on February 20, 2020. It’ll feature the Special Edition features that let you play as Dante’s brother, Vergil.
If you haven’t checked out the latest game in the series, our Devil May Cry 5 review will put you on track, as we said its “combat is the strongest the series has seen to date.”
