During Nintendo’s extensive Nintendo Direct showcase earlier this week, it was announced that the sequel to Capcom’s enduring action-adventure series, Devil May Cry 2, will be making its way over to the Switch. The announcement comes just weeks before the game will become available on the console, allowing Nintendo fans their first time experiencing the sequel on a Nintendo platform.
The sequel announcement shouldn’t be too surprising as the original Devil May Cry title released earlier this summer on the Switch. It would be a bit interesting if the Switch only received the fist game in the series. And after the announcement of Devil May Cry 2, we should at least expect the third part in the series to eventually land on the Switch in order to complete the entire trilogy. Though, keep your ears open for additional titles in the series to make their way over, quite possibly the fourth installment as well.
Check out the quick overview of the second game in the series below via Nintendo:
Dance with the devil once again.
Set some time after the events of Devil May Cry, this sequel adds even more moves to Dante’s arsenal and brings it to the next level of stylishness. Use the wall run to get the vantage point on your enemies, then assault them with a spinning barrage of bullets using Rain Storm. Reprise your role as Dante, or play as the new femme fatale, Lucia, who prefers deadly throwing daggers to bullets and utilizes her speed with ninja-like reflexes. Build up your Devil Trigger gauge, then transform into a powerful demon with enhanced power and speed. While in demon form, Dante and Lucia can also utilize Devil Hearts—amulets that give them special powers like the ability to fly, super speed or even slowing down time.
Devil May Cry 2 also introduces the unlockable bonus mode, Bloody Palace – where players can earn Red Orbs while trying to clear wave after wave of enemies.
Devil May Cry 2 will release on the Switch on September 19, 2019 as a digital-only release on the eShop.
