Recently, VG247 managed to get a chance to talk one of the producers of the Devil May Cry series Hidaki Itsuno where he was asked about the recent rumors of Dante possibly making his way into Super Smash Bros Ultimate!
Itsuno responded to the question with:
“Well, you think about it… I’m pretty sure that they… all the characters in Smash at least have some game on a Nintendo platform, right?” Itsuno said after a bit of a chuckle. There’s Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy 7 too, he notes, but as Itsuno points out, Cloud at least represents a series with a rich history on Nintendo.
“Well, that’s the thing. Devil May Cry has never been on a Nintendo platform. So it seems like the first thing to do would be to get Capcom to put Devil May Cry on a Nintendo platform in some way, shape or form – whatever game that might be,” Itsuno concludes. “Tell her!” he adds with a laugh, gesturing to the Capcom UK representative who can pass feedback on fevered requests for some DMC Switch ports back up the chain.
So it seems that Itsuno is open to the idea but would rather have the Devil May Cry series come to a Nintendo system first so Nintendo fans are familiar with the series.
He also goes on to say if Nintendo fans want the Devil May Cry series on Nintendo Switch, they should ask Capcom to make their voices be heard (port begging)!
