Is Devil May Cry 5 on Nintendo Switch?

Curious whether Capcom's new demon-slaying title Devil May Cry 5 is on Nintendo Switch? Here's what we know.


Devil May Cry 5 is Capcom’s latest entry in the long-standing Devil May Cry franchise and Nintendo Switch users are starting to wonder if the title will be coming to their hybrid console. These days it seems like most big titles are coming to the Switch, but when the console isn’t listed, fans can get a bit worried. It's perfectly reasonable to ask the question, is Devil May Cry 5 coming to Nintendo Switch, so let's talk about that.

Is Devil May Cry 5 on Nintendo Switch?

No, Devil May Cry 5 is not releasing on Nintendo Switch. As it stands, Devil May Cry 5 is only set to release across the other three major platforms: Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows 10 PC. This means players on the Nintendo Switch will have to get their demon-slaying kicks elsewhere – perhaps from Dark Souls Remastered or Doom?

However, despite the fact Devil May Cry 5 is not releasing on the Nintendo Switch right now, does not mean it will be that way forever. Numerous games have released across various platforms and have been released on the Nintendo Switch later on.

It certainly comes as a surprise given that the likes of Bayonetta 3 will be releasing exclusively on the Nintendo Switch, a series that is quite similar in style to that of Devil May Cry 5. Both games use a hack-and-slash combat style, both titles reward fast-paced and stylish use of this system, and both feature dozens of on-screen enemies for players to kill. It’s not impossible for the Nintendo Switch to render these kinds of high fidelity titles it’s just whether or not the developer is able to deliver a quality product in time for release.

It’s an unfortunate pattern that’s emerging, but if the demand is there from consumers, we could see Capcom release Devil May Cry 5 on the Nintendo Switch at some point in the future. For now though, Devil May Cry 5 is only launching on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows 10 PC.
