Trailer: Devil May Cry 2 Finds Its Way to Nintendo Switch

The much-embattled follow-up to the first title is the latest installment to appear on the popular hybrid console.

The Devil May Cry franchise is continuing its takeover of the Nintendo Switch with the second game of the series arriving on the eShop this week. The sequel was not quite well-received by fans, receiving overall lower scores than its predecessor, and is considered the weakest entry in the series. However, we can’t fault any completion-minded folks out there who want to pick it up just to see each installment of the franchise at least once.

Set some time after the events of Devil May Cry, the story follows Dante and Lucia in their fight to stop a businessman named Arius from raising the demon Argosax to achieve supreme power.

The gameplay is similar to what you would expect from the franchise, though noticeably easier and with less mechanical polish overall. However, the title sold well enough to keep the franchise going and that brought us some fantastic follow-ups in the games that have been released since then.

Devil May Cry 2 is available now on Nintendo Switch for $19.99. If you’re interested in picking this one up, you can head on over to the eShop and get downloading!
