The Original Devil May Cry is Coming to Nintendo Switch™

10.May.2019 | ANIME&GAME

Gamers are gearing up for the release of the Resident Evil Origins Collection―which includes HD remasters of the original Resident Evil and Resident Evil Zero―and Resident Evil 4 on the Nintendo Switch™ on May 21, 2019.

Capcom fans have now been treated to some even more delicious news. The company has revealed that the original Devil May Cry will be released on the Switch.

The Resident Evil remaster was released in 2002 as a remake of the original PlayStation game released in 1996. Everything from the graphics to the outline of the story was given a new edge. It received critical acclaim with many praising it had succeeded in being scarier than the original while also adding more depth to the already deep story. It was a faithful adaptation that was more shaped to the modern market and play style at the time of release. Capcom also produced the documentary Wesker’s Report which provided backstory to the game series.

Resident Evil Zero HD Remaster was released in 2016 as a remake of the original 2002 Nintendo GameCube game. It serves as a prequel to Resident Evil. The original game introduced several different gaming mechanics including “partner zapping” in which players can switch between both main characters, Rebecca and Billy, to use their unique abilities and solve puzzles. The high-definition remake saw the introduction of a new play mode called Wesker Mode where the player takes control of Albert Wesker.

Resident Evil was the first game in the series to adopt the over the shoulder third-person view perspective. The game is lauded for having a huge influence not only in the Resident Evil series but the video game industry as a whole.

The original Devil May Cry was released in 2001 for the PlayStation 2. It introduced the world to its iconic demon-hunting vigilante and superhuman power-pushing protagonist Dante. The franchise has garnered a huge fan base and has seen anime, comic and film adaptations. As of March 20, 2019 the series has sold over 19 million copies.

Fans can now look forward to playing the game in all of its hack-and-slash glory on the Nintendo Switch. The release date has yet to be announced.

    New Menu Items

    Devil Breaker “Overture” Potato – ¥880 (Before Tax)

    New Merchandise

    Vergil Perfume – ¥4,800 (Before Tax)

    This perfume captures everything about the DMC character Vergil including his path to seeking the truth and his superiority. The first smell to hit your nose is the cool and piercing mint, followed by the waft of cedarwood, and finally amber for an oriental finish.

     

    The cafe also has plans to reproduce the Nero, Dante and V perfumes for the cafe too, all of which originally sold out.

  • New Trailer Release For the Tokyo 2020 Official Video Game On PS4® & Nintendo Switch™

    25.May.2019 | ANIME&GAME

    A new trailer has dropped for the forthcoming PlayStation4® and Nintendo Switch™ game Tokyo Olympics 2020 Official Video Game detailing more information regarding online matchmaking and the games we can expect.

     

    Ranked Games: Aim for gold online

    Ranked Games will pit you against other players online where you will compete to get the highest worldwide rank. The rank system ranges from C- to A+. Matches in this mode are carried out with a timetable just like the real Olympic Games. The athletic events will change every 30-minutes within which you are free to retry as many times as you like. The match time limit will be chosen according to your rank, and players will be given an opponent with a close rank to themselves. Players will receive a “Rank Score” when they play. As their Rank Score increases so does their rank. If their rank goes high enough they will be able to participate in special ranking matches.

    Boxing

    Players will go head to head against each other 1 on 1 in a boxing ring and control each fist with the left and stick analogue sticks respectively. Even inexperienced players to boxing games have a chance at winning these matches as they continue to roll out the punches. Players can also side step and guard to block incoming attacks. If they fill up the three-bar gauge fully they can throw out a “Special Blow” and deal high damage.

    Hammer Throw

    In the Hammer Throw game, players will need to swing their hammers with the analogue stick with increasing speed to reach the furthest distance. If players continue rotating the analogue stick after the hammer has been thrown their character will let out a war cry which can make the hammer fly even further.

     

    Participate in the Olympics from your own home by picking up a copy of the official video game dropping in Japan on July 24, 2019.
