Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition is a decent remaster for the Nintendo Switch, with a big addition that changes the gameplay dramatically. If you never experienced Dante's Awakening in the past, this is the way to do it.

While Devil May Cry 3 is starting to show its age, it still holds its title as one of the best character action games ever made. The new additions add a refreshing twist on this classic game, while still retaining its difficulty and depth. And who knows, after so many re-releases and playthroughs, maybe people will notice how meaningful and well told the story is.
Built-in achievements, small storage size (around 5GB), and super fast load times make this much more than just a port — it’s an impressive “ultimate” edition, if you will. Bravo, Capcom.
The latest port of the highly acclaimed Devil May Cry 3, not only succeeds in bringing the fan-favorite title to the Nintendo Switch, but also manages to improve it. The already solid combat has only improved with the addition of the Free Style mode, and the new co-op mode for Bloody Palace will let you share the fun with a friend. Despite the stationary camera and re-used bosses, this game pleases more than it punishes. Indeed, whether you are drawn to this latest iteration of DMC3 out of a sense of nostalgia or a love for its excellent combat, you will surely enjoy this greatly re-playable game

Devil May Cry 3 is a must-play if you’re already a fan of Capcom’s combo-based action series or if you’re new to the genre. The handheld and Joy-Con controls may not be ideal for prolonged periods of play or players with difficulty mashing buttons, but you’ll still be treated to one of the best and most stylish action games currently available on the Switch.
Without it, we would not see the success stories of many major modern hack and slasher’s such as Bayonetta, Dynasty Warriors, Darksiders, Castlevania, No More Heroes, God of War, Heavenly Sword and many others. Devil May Cry 3 is still the staple of the hack and slash genre, and will remain one of the greatest action games of all time.
Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition for the Switch is the definitive version of arguably the best Devil May Cry game. Freestyle mode is a revelation that makes a great game even better, and the rest of the port is similarly top-notch. If you're a fan of the game or the franchise, then DMC3 for the Switch is absolutely worth the money. The party is really getting started now.
Character action games rely heavily on combat and style and Devil May Cry 3 manages to deliver just that in spades. While not being able to completely withstand the test of time, the addition of Free Style play to the Switch version gives the title a breath of fresh air, offering veterans of the series a fresh take on the classic while making it even more accessible to newcomers.
We wish DMC3: SE is the standard of Capcom's releases on Nintendo Switch going forward. This is the best version of this beloved action game and it feels great on the go.

It's hard to believe that a 3D action game as supremely enjoyable as Devil May Cry 3 released 15 years ago. It's a modern masterpiece that genre fans need to play even if they already have dozens of times before.
Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition has learnt some new tricks on Nintendo Switch. It might be a bit creaky in places visually, but with the new Freestyle Mode spicing up its already brilliant action, this is the new definitive version of the game.
Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition for Nintendo Switch is the best version of the cult game, which has become more fun due to new features and interesting co-op. Instant access to all weapons and quick switching of styles pleasantly updated the outdated combat system, allowing you to create more spectacular combos, and the cooperative play of the "Blood Palace" allowed this mode to shine with new colors. It is a pity that the developers did not add online and correct some old roughness, such as the missing effect of translucent hair of the characters and some pre-recorded scenes in low resolution. Otherwise, this is a great adaptation that will definitely please fans of the genre.

Devil May Cry 3 may be getting on a bit 15 years later but it nonetheless remains one of the most technically hardcore action games out there, and devout devil hunters will make great use of the additional features for the Switch port.
Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition for the Nintendo Switch offers the fun, fast-paced, over-the-top action that's characteristic of a Devil May Cry game but carries with it unwanted remnants that reminds us it's not a new game, despite its new features.
Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition for Nintendo Switch is the best version of the game so far, but this piece of gaming history is beginning to show its age.
