Bloody Palace co-op is the icing on top of Devil May Cry 3 Switch


The upgraded Switch version is out February 20, 2020

With one week left to go, Capcom has scored another win for Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition on Nintendo Switch. The infamous Bloody Palace mode now supports local co-op, so you and a pal can team up as Dante and Vergil, and you'll each be able to set your own controller customization options.

You'll want to use Pro Controllers if you've got 'em, but a single or double Joy-Con setup works too. As for unlock requirements, you'll just need to finish the intro before you can tag-team the Bloody Palace.

When Capcom first started teasing bonus features for the Switch version, fans wasted no time speculating. Capcom producer Matt Walker enjoyed seeing everyone's guesses, but one idea, in particular, stood out: "What if Capcom had put the Master Sword in Devil May Cry 3 SE? I saw that and thought, 'I really wish we did that now!' Unfortunately, that's not going to happen this time."

Between the co-op inclusion, Style Switching, and better weapon swapping, it's going to be hard to turn down the Switch port no matter how many times you've burned through Devil May Cry 3 before.

I'm looking up old videos of floor 9,999 in the Bloody Palace and weeping.
