Early reviews are saying that Devil May Cry 5 is the game that Devil May Cry fans have been waiting for, as it has a fun story, great graphics, fun characters, and an absolutely insanely good combat system. Capcom likely has another major hit on its hands, and that’s why some are hoping that are the success of the game, that the company will port it over to the Nintendo Switch. The team is all for it, and now, the Game Director for DMC 5 has made a statement about what it would take.
Because before any of this happens, Dragon’s Dogma: Arisen is coming to the Nintendo Switch, and according to a magazine interview with the director, he said that if Dragon’s Dogma sells well on Switch, Devil May Cry 5 may be ported to it.
This isn’t the first time a company has done the whole “if this sells well we’ll bring more”, in fact, Capcom has done it before! But it’s clear they want more proof of intent from gamers.
Good sales on Switch could also lead to a sequel for Dragon’s Dogma according to the director as well:
“That was a brand new series – a lot of other stuff I’d done was already established,” said Itsuno to the folks over at Eurogamer during a recent interview. “It was one of the first real new things. And back then it still wasn’t quite so common for Capcom to do a simultaneous worldwide release, plus we were doing all this new stuff with the pawn system.”
He added, “I’ve mentioned this before, but when we started Devil May Cry 5, I’d gone to the people up top and said let me make either Devil May Cry 5 or Dragon’s Dogma 2,” he said. “I thought Devil May Cry 5would be the better choice right now, so did that. If I could, I’d love to make Dragon’s Dogma 2 – it’d be awesome.”
We’ll just have to see how it all plays out.
