Basically what it says on the tin, DMC3:SE on the Switch will get a stand-alone mode that allows for style-switching on the fly. You use the D-pad to switch between styles, while doubletapping right and left is Quicksilver and Doppleganger respectively. Two more announcements are on the way in the near future as well regarding the franchise.

Personally, I don't think this is an addition DMC3 needed since the game isn't built around this, but it would be interesting to see just how badly one can break the game now that this feature, which was originally a mod, is widely available. No news on wheither this feature will come to other releases of the same game on other consoles.

Makes me want to hurt a Switch owner.

>break the game
Didn't mod users already do this? What was the result?

It broke the game haha! Dante is basically a god with the mod since the styles were balanced to only have one at a time. Having all of them just snaps the game in half.

Is it true that Itsuno wanted to implement Style Switching in the original release?

I have never heard that before. Unless he stated that at the time I'd chalk it up to marketing for the newer games.

I've read it on Twitter and the author seems a fervent DMC4 fan so the source isn't exactly "impartial".

Well, overpowered protags are still fun in these games.

Just to add to this, extended weapon switching (like in DMC5) and local coop in Bloody Palace have also been announced.

It is sad to think how many first timers will only experience this broken unbalanced version of the game.

On the flipside, it is an optional mode iirc so they can still experience the regular mode. That said, most will probably jump to the overpowered mode, just as people didn't play Yellow mode when Special Edition hit.

It's a bit disappointing that Capcom are choosing to put effort into recreating a PC mod collection for DMC3 (for ONE platform only) instead of updating 5 with the content people have been asking for since launch.

We don't know that yet, but considering Sony still charges companies for patches I think you can bet it won't come to other consoles at all.

They still have the superior versions of Dragon Quest and FF12. I doubt we'll get shit.

The general consensus that I've seen online is that the next gen systems will get a 4K collection with the new version on DMC3SE. I can see that happening, knowing Capcom. Hopefully their next collection is DMC1-4, for the sake of completeness (assuming 5 gets it's own SE release).

Always dislike it when some systems in the same generation get different versions. PC still has the best version of FFX by a metric mile which ticks me off too.

I can see DMCHD going to the next generation with these updates. Though I don't think it will be a collection. DMC is selling like hot cakes on the Switch at 20~ bucks PER game seperately, don't think we'll see a bundle anytime soon anymore.

Although I didn't play it myself, I think the problem with freestyling is that it was always about providing cool options to the player, but it doesn't for balanced ways to stop them with enemies in 3. The option is genuinely awesome and it's nice to see the creativity of players, but it lends itself to a question of, "Are you getting that much better without the obstacles to make that system worth it?" But hey, after all these years, it's cool to see what it would have actually been like.

I'd say I agree, though on the flipside, the game is so old, just let people derp around. I do feel it again shows the DMC's community, and the developer's, complete lack of understanding what made the combat in DMC3 and 1 so great.
