Capcom has announced another new feature that will be included in Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition for Switch.
The feature is called “Weapon Switching” and allows players to switch between all their weapons on the fly in “Free Style” mode. Capcom Producer Matt Walker explained how this works in a video on Twitter, which you can find below:

“I know you’re probably thinking, ‘Wait, Matt, I can already switch between weapons on the fly in Devil May Cry 3,’”
“You can, but you’ve only ever been able to switch between two ranged weapons and two melee weapons at any given time. And the way it would usually be is, in-between missions or at a Divinity Statue, you would go and you would set those two weapons.”
“Well now, in Free Style Mode in Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition on Nintendo Switch, you’re going to be able to switch between all the weapons that you have in your inventory. And the way that you’re going to do that is by pressing the ZR button for the melee weapons, ZL button for the ranged weapons, and you can cycle through all the weapons. Or if you hold the button in and use the right stick, you’re going to see that there’s a radial menu that pops up… You’ll see that you’ll be able to pick the specific weapon that you want by holding in the ZR button or ZL button as a shift button, and then selecting the specific weapon with the right stick.”
This new feature was also showed off in a livestream from Capcom held earlier today, which you can catch up on here.
