Devil May Cry is Coming to Switch This Summer

Just the first game? Why? Why not the HD Collection?

EDIT: so I found about this article from February. Seems oddly relevant now.

EDIT 2: Devil May Cry for Switch to be Released Only Digitally Through Nintendo eShop

For those who expected a physical copy.

One will (allegedly) be a cheaper, handheld-only variant meant for younger players. While the other will be a more powerful, enhanced version meant for "avid gamers". The cheaper model will ditch features like HD Rumble to keep the price low, while the "Pro" model has a power increase similar to the New 3DS over the original.



The hand-held only variant has been revealed to the public.

The hand-held only variant has been revealed to the public.

Full Summary for the Switch Lite:
  • Releases September 20th.
  • Retailing for $199.99.
  • 3 Color Variants (Yellow, Blue and Grey) available at launch with a Pokemon SW&SH variant coming in November.
  • No TV connectivity/dock, the Lite is an exclusively handheld device.
  • The "Joy-con" are built into the system and are not detachable.
  • Regular Joy-Con are compatible but are not bundled with the system.
  • Additional Joy-Con are required to play games such as 1-2 Switch. (Which require the detached Joy-Con to play.)
  • Nintendo suggests looking at the back of the game box to see if a game is compatible with Handheld mode.
  • The Eshop will warn you if you try to download a game that requires detached Joy-Con.
  • Features a traditional D-Pad.
  • Does not feature a Kickstand, IR Camera or Rumble.
  • Smaller than the original Switch. (See photo below.)
  • 3.6” high, 8.2” long, .55” deep (Compared to the original which is 4” high, 9.4” long, .55” deep)
  • Features a 5.5" screen compared to the original's 6.2" screen. (Both are 720p and feature touch controls.)
  • Features an improved battery life of 3-7 Hours. (Compared to the original's 2.5-6.5 Hours)
  • Data will be transferable between the current Switch hardware and the Lite.
  • The Lite is a "lower-cost spin-off" of the Switch, rather than a Sequel/Replacement.
I layered the comparison photo from switch.nintendo.com so we can get a good idea how small the Lite is compared to the regular Switch.
