Devil May Cry Heading to Nintendo Switch
Capcom’s legendary hack and slash classing is coming to Nintendo Switch.
Hot on the heels of the latest installment, Devil May Cry 5, it seems that Capcom seeks to capitalise on the success of the series this year by bringing the original Devil May Cry to Switch.
Released back in early March Devil May Cry 5 was released to exceptional critical acclaim and strong reviews from journalists and gamers alike.
Given the huge success of the fifth in the series now would be an excellent time for Capcom to release Devil May Cry.
Originally released for PlayStation 2 in 2001, Devil May Cry is an extremely popular gaming series and subsequent Devil May Cry games always seem to do well.
The games are now so popular that there are even a Devil May Cry anime series and novels based on the games.
However, it must be stated that this is in fact an eighteen year old game, so the why Capcom has chosen this particular game is a mystery.
Given that the Nintendo Switch is, for it’s size, quite a powerful machine, it stands to reason that they could have released a later Devil May Cry title, or even a port of DMC 5.
Perhaps, according to some speculation there is a longer term plan to release all of the games in the DMC series over the next couple of years but this remains to be confirmed.
There are no details on the release yet in terms of any extras or Nintendo Switch exclusive features, and both Nintendo and Capcom seem to be keeping quiet about the price.
There have been some screenshots released and although the game appears to have slightly higher texture resolutions and in HD, that’s about it.

Character models, environments and effects all appear to be exactly the same which makes this port of an eighteen year old game seems like such a waste.
In order for this game to sell well the price will have to be very reasonable, especially when you consider that it has already been confirmed there will be no physical release.
Devil May Cry will be released for Nintendo Switch this Summer.
EA Access Confirmed for PS4
It has been confirmed that EA Access will be coming to PlayStation 4 this Summer.
The platform for launching Electronic Arts games has been available on Xbox One for years now and had been rumored for a PS4 release for some time.
Given Sony’s penchant for rivalry, it comes as no surprise that it has taken this long for the company to allow EA Access on their flagship console.
However, in recent months Sony have appeared to be opening up more to other companies and rivals much like Microsoft and Nintendo.
Perhaps thanks to the recent wave of cross play games Sony has seen the benefit in being more open both in terms of business and delivering a better experience to the end user.
EA Access is a subscription based digital games delivery platform that allows the download and play of many Electronic Arts published games.
Some of these games include massive blockbusters such as the Mass Effect series, the Battlefield series, all EA Sports titles including FIFA 19 and The Sims 4 console.
The games list also includes Titanfall and Titanfall 2, both developed by Respawn Entertainment, the creators of this year’s surprise massive hit game Apex Legends.
Apex Legends has been a huge success for both Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts and has been a genuine rival for the world’s biggest Battle Royale game, Fortnite.
As great as the games list is for EA Access, the service also offers other benefits such as discounts on full game purchases, Season Passes and DLC as well as early access to the biggest upcoming titles.
Perhaps one the biggest attractions to the service is the price: EA Access will be launching on PlayStation 4 on 1st June 2019 for £3.99 per month or £19.99 per year.
Large Fallout 76 Patch Adds New Content
A large update for Fallout 76 has been released which includes some fixes and new content.
The update comes just as EA’s server issues have finally been fixed after some paralyzing issues over the weekend.
The update weighs in at 8GB on consoles and 3.5GB on Windows PC.
Fallout 76 is a massive online RPG set in the Fallout universe and has a large following due to it’s rich story and detailed open world.
Included in the update are bug fixes, new quests, new items, game balancing tweaks, and challenges.
New quests, challenges and events are available by joining the Pioneer Scouts which will also reward a Backpack which will increase your carry weight limit.
The Backpack can further be customized to change it’s appearance and add utilities.
As well as being very practical, a cool feature of Backpacks is that they are visible on your character as long Power Armour is not equipped.
Another great new feature is that Vending Machines can now be placed in your CAMP.
Vending Machines can be used to sell items for caps and can also be used to advertise to CAMP to other players who can fast travel there.
The Vending Machines allow for thirty individual item stacks from your inventory or your Stash.
When an item is sold, you will retain 90% of the sale while 10% goes toward the game’s economy and caps have a limit of up to 25,000, beyond which you will stop receiving caps from sales.
There are also many other changes to the game with this week’s update.
The full patch notes can be found on the official Fallout 76 website:
