Devil May Cry 5 Nintendo Switch Port May Happen, Depends On Dragon’s Dogma’s Success

The next entry into the long-standing franchise, Devil May Cry 5, has officially launched for all three major platforms and the people and critics alike are raving about it. From the gorgeous, stylish gameplay that stays true to the franchise and spotlight on Nero’s journey and reunion with the crew, there’s a lot to love. Unfortunately, those of whom own a Nintendo Switch may have a while to wait before it hits the hybrid console, and will largely depend on Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen‘s success.

Recently announced, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is making its way to the Switch this April since its debut on the Xbox 360 and PS3. Despite the console’s success as the new kid on the block, a Devil May Cry 5 port isn’t guaranteed. During an interview with M! Games, game director Hideaki Itsuno informed that there’s certainly a possibility.

When the team initially began development for the game on Xbox One, PS4, and PC, the studio hadn’t received a dev kit from Nintendo and since then, all of their resources have focused on the aforementioned and the Switch was left out of the equation. However, if Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen “sells well on Switch,” the team may “consider” implementing a port for DMC5.

,,But if ,,Dragon’s Dogma:Dark Arisens” sells well on Switch, then we might consider porting ,,DMC 5″. says Game Director of DMC 5 from r/NintendoSwitch

That might not be much to go on, but it raises hopes for some Devil May Cry 5 action on-the-go. It’s the perfect hack and slash title to pass the time during breaks and commutes on the train. With that said, it seems awfully fishy that the potential of a port rests on the success of another game, but this is business we’re talking about. If Devil May Cry 5 does well and a port makes financial sense, it may very well end up on the Switch anyway.

What do you think about the potential of a Devil May Cry 5 Nintendo Switch port? Is this a game you’d like to see on the go? Should Capcom release it on the hybrid console anyway, regardless of Dragon Dogma’s success?
