Following a wave of quality releases, Capcom has announced that it is releasing the original Devil May Cry on Nintendo Switch later this year.
Capcom tweeted the news but did not confirm a release date or pricing details.
While we've already seen the release of the first three games in the way of the Devil May Cry HD Collection on consoles and PC last year, some fans are confused as to why Capcom is only releasing the first game on the Switch instead of the trilogy pack.
The company has already released several worthy ports on the Switch along with the upcoming Resident Evil, Resident Evil 0, and Resident Evil 4 set to drop later this month, so it's not too much of a surprise to see one if it's most popular franchises finally making the jump to Nintendo systems.
The announcement has also fanned the flames of speculation that this release could open the doors to Dante appearing in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate following an interview VG247 had with DMC director Hideaki Itsuno. When quizzed on whether fans could expect to see Dante join the Smash roster, Itsuno stated "Devil May Cry has never been on a Nintendo platform. So it seems like the first thing to do would be to get Capcom to put Devil May Cry on a Nintendo platform in some way, shape or form – whatever game that might be,"
Whether or not Dante does make it to the Smash, I'm excited to revisit the game with the added benefits of devil slaying on the go.
