Devil May Cry 5 Nintendo Switch Port is Dependent on Dragon’s Dogma

Devil May Cry 5 Nintendo Switch Port is Dependent on Dragon’s Dogma

You may be wondering how to unlock Bloody Palace in-game, but its release is scheduled exclusively as DLC sometime in April.

Okay, let's back up for a moment. Director Hideaki Itsuno and producer Matt Walker discussed the Switch version of the game in a recent interview with German gaming magazine M! He said it wouldn't happen until a DMC game came to a Nintendo platform since that seems to be the only prerequisite for a character to appear in SSBU.

With that in mind I'm split between wanting to pick up Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen even more now or less than before.

If Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen sells well on Switch, then we might consider porting DMC 5. It's basically this kind of tournament thing, where you battle waves of enemies and bosses, climbing up the tower, until you reach the very top.

The idea of a Devil May Cry 5 Switch release is tantalising.

"We started the development of DMC 5, while we didn't have the dev-kits [for] the Switch". With 49 critics weighing in, Devil May Cry 5 has 46 positive reviews and 3 mixed reviews for an average score of 88/100.

As for Devil May Cry 5, we'll need to wait on Capcom's release of the post-release content, with only Bloody Palace now on the roadmap. It's been in every single DMC game since the second one, so of course it's coming again in the new one.

What are your thoughts on this?
