Capcom continues its reveal of new features for the Nintendo Switch version of Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition. After announcing Style Switching, which lets Dante change between four different Styles on the fly like in current games, the developer has now confirmed Weapon Switching. How is it different from the current system though?

Before, it was possible to switch between two guns and two Devil Arms. You had to change out which ones could be accessed between missions or at a Divinity Statue. However, this new system allows for switching between all unlocked weapons during combat. You can press ZR to switch between Devil Arms and ZL for switching guns.

You can also hold either button down and open a radial menu. Select the weapon you want from said menu with the right stick and you’re good to go. It’s an intriguing new mechanic that will open up the potential for much cooler combos than before. Capcom will showcase the new Weapon Switching during a livestream at 2 PM PT so check it out for more details.

Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition releases on February 20th for Nintendo Switch.
