There are a number of character that Super Smash Bros fans would like to appear in the game and one of those is Dante from the Devil May Cry series. VG247 met up with Devil May Cry boss Hideaki Itsuno who said that Capcom would need to put the game on the Nintendo Switch first and that it would be a good idea for them to do so.
“Well, you think about it… I’m pretty sure that they… all the characters in Smash at least have some game on a Nintendo platform, right?” Itsuno said after a bit of a chuckle. There’s Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy 7 too, he notes, but as Itsuno points out, Cloud at least represents a series with a rich history on Nintendo.
“Well, that’s the thing. 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,” Itsuno concludes. “Tell her!” he adds with a laugh, gesturing to the Capcom UK representative who can pass feedback on fevered requests for some DMC Switch ports back up the chain.
