Capcom has recently announced that Devil May Cry, the original title in the franchise, will be getting a port to Nintendo Switch sometime this year. Now, thanks to the folks over at Nintendo Life we know that Devil May Cry will be available on Nintendo on June 24 (or June 26 if you’re in Japan).

Devil May Cry on Nintendo Switch will be available for $19.99 with multi-language support including English, Japanese, French, Italian, Spanish, German, and Chinese at launch, with the possibility of more translations in the future. Currently, Capcom has only announced the Nintendo Switch port for Devil May Cry with no news yet regarding other titles in the franchise. However, if Devil May Cry on Nintendo Switch does well enough, we’re likely to see a Nintendo Switch port for the entire Devil May Cry franchise eventually.

On the Nintendo Switch eShop, Devil May Cry will require a massive 9.2 GB of space on your console. The game was designed to run at 60FPS on modern platforms, but considering the power of the Nintendo Switch, we might expect a little less in terms of performance.

Devil May Cry first came out in 2001 for the PlayStation 2. Over the years, the original Devil May Cry has been ported to other platforms such as Xbox 360, Xbox One, two generations of PlayStation consoles including PlayStation 3 and 4, and of course, PC.

The latest title in the Devil May Cry franchise is Devil May Cry 5, which came out earlier this year in March. Devil May Cry 5's release was over a decade after Devil May Cry 4, and with the latest technology and industry trends, it has become, arguably, the best title in the series to date.

Devil May Cry has been enjoyed by gamers for almost 20 years, and now with the original Devil May Cry title available on Switch, new generations can experience the hack n’ slash action adventure that started a decades-long gaming franchise.
