Capcom sez Switch can have DMC5 under one condition... if Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen sells well for the system. I'm not sure what kind of logic that is, buying this less popular game will get you this WAY more popular one. But, that kind of sucks. I mean, in a hilariously cruel kind of way.
Game director Hideaki Itsuno had this to say in a recent inteview
When asked why Devil May Cry 5 isn’t on Switch, Itsuno explained that development started before the team had dev kits. Capcom therefore concentrated on releasing the game for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. However, Itsuno added that if Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen sells well, they might consider porting Devil May Cry 5 to Nintendo’s console.
Cut to Itsuno yelling in an Edward G. Robinson accent, "Yah, see? You'll never get this game, see? Get on yer' knees and kiss mah pinkie ring!". Okay I embellished that. But, imagine buying a game console that sells over 30 million units in two years, and they STILL make you port beg for games... by buying old games. Yikes!
