The old PS1 classic is set to arrive on Nintendos console, as Capcoms financials show better than expected results for Resident Evil 2.
Although Capcom has always been a close ally of Nintendo none of the mainline Devil May Cry games have ever appeared on a Nintendo console before, but thats about to change.
A remastered version of the very first Devil May Cry game is being released on Nintendo Switch, but as a download-only version with no physical release.
But if that seems a rather underwhelming announcement some fans have already suggested that it might be an excuse to justify Dantes appearance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as future DLC.

When asked about the possibility, Devil May Cry 5 director Hideaki Itsuno told VG247 that, 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.
Whether he said that knowing that this would happen is open to speculation but it does suddenly seem like a great idea, especially as it would allow for a Dante vs. Bayonetta mash-up.
The more unromantic theory is that this is simply Capcom squeezing the last bit of money out of the recent Devil May Cry HD Collection and if the first game sells well we might get the other three as well.
Although were not sure anyone would willingly buy Devil May Cry 2 on its own.
By coincidence, or not, Capcom also announced their new financial results today, where they revealed that Resident Evil 2 exceeded expectations, with four million units shipped in six weeks, and Devil May Cry 5 performed strongly, backed by consistent demand with two million shipments in two weeks.
