Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition - Nintendo Switch
Top Critic Average
An unexpectedly enhanced version of one of the best action games of the PS2 era, which even now offers better and deeper combat than most modern rivals.
Devil May Cry 3 has aged remarkably well in almost every other area and the Switch port is the best version of this all-time classic.
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.
One of the best HD remakes you will find, with worthy additions to an already great game.
Devil May Cry 3 is now out on the Nintendo Switch, bringing with it some great new features that make the 2005 classic even better.
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.
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 Instant access to all weapons and quick switching of styles pleasantly updated the outdated combat system, allowing you to create more spectacular combos, and the cooperative play of the "Blood Palace" allowed this mode to shine with new colors.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.

DMC3 is still a very good Beat'em Up, and adds a coop'rative mode to the Switch Version, but the remaster is very, very lazy.

The Switch port of Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition is a wonderful upgrade to an excellent action-adventure video game.
Devil May Cry 3 remains one of the very best action games ever made.
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.
Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition on the Switch is without a doubt the best way to play Devil May Cry 3.

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 on Switch is easily the definitive way to experience one of the best action games ever made.
With classic addictive gameplay and the addition of Freestyle Mode and local co-op mode in Bloody palace, Devil May Cry 3 stands out as the most valubale addition of the franchise to Nintendo Switch.

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

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.

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.
