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.

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 Instant access to all weapons and quick switching of styles pleasantly updated the outdated combat system, allowing you to create more spectacular combos, and the cooperative play of the "Blood Palace" allowed this mode to shine with new colors.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.
