The Devil May Cry series is officially making its first appearance on a Nintendo console with the release of the first title now confirmed for a port to Nintendo Switch. While no hard release date or retail price point has been provided at this time, a tweet from the official Devil May Cry Twitter page confirms that it will be coming sometime this summer. This could also be good news for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate players hoping for Dante to make an appearance. An interview between series director Hidaki Itsuno and VG24/7 from this past February produced a comment from Itsuno about the possibility of Dante in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. As he put things, “it seems like the first thing to do would be to get Capcom to put Devil May Cry on a Nintendo platform”. This is by no means a confirmation of Dante’s arrival into the current roster of Smash Bros. characters, but it’s definitely a step in the right direction.
