Devil May Cry is still a title worthy of revisiting on the Switch for seasoned veterans and curious newcomers if they know what it is going in.

Devil May Cry for Nintendo Switch is a cult action game with great style, deep atmosphere and a fascinating adventure elements. Even after 18 years it is good to play. So it's really a shame that Capcom has not fixed all the problems with bugs and sell the game with a high price and without DMC 2 and DMC 3. Outdated PS2-graphics in HD looks tolerable in portable format, built-in achievements is nice addition, but until the publisher does not reduce the cost at least twice, it is better to spend money on something else.

Much like Onimusha: Warlords before it, Devil May Cry preserves all the things that made it great in 2001, while systematically crystallising all of its faults. It's a shame it wasn't given the remake treatment gifted to Resident Evil and Resident Evil Zero – or even have some form of 'remastering' to optimise it for Nintendo Switch – but for fans of the series who hold fond memories of slaying demons and attaining that elusive 'S' rank, you can now enjoy Dante's inaugural adventure in handheld form.

Devil May Cry's appearance on Switch should be regarded as an essential installment of modern gaming history. Its genesis in Resident Evil, unconscious evolution of the beat 'em up genre, and conception of stylish-action showcase the fierce innovation demonstrated by the PlayStation 2 in 2001. In 2019, the primordial Devil May Cry may be more frustrating than fun, but what it lacks in comfort it corrects with prestige.
