Capcom has announced that Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition for Nintendo Switch, which is due to launch next month, will feature the same style switching mechanic first debuted in DMC4.
The developer explains in a recent blog post that “Style Switching in Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition will work just like you’d expect.” As in, the controls are identical to DMC4:
“Press UP for Trickster, DOWN for Royal Guard, LEFT for Gunslinger and RIGHT for Swordmaster. For the special styles unlocked later in the game, it’ll require a quick double-tap of specific buttons. For Doppelganger, double-tap LEFT, and for Quicksilver, double-tap RIGHT.”
We’re told that you’ll still be able to level all 4 main styles as was the case in the original Devil May Cry 3, but this time you’ll have the option to switch on the fly.
You can check out the style switching mechanic in the new “Free Style” DMC3 trailer below.
