Fans are excited for Dante’s debut title to reach Nintendo Switch because it means that there may be a slim possibility that Dante could head to the Super Smash Bros. franchise. According to a conversation VG 24/7 had with Hidaki Itsuno, if fans wanted Dante in the Smash Bros. series, he’d have to first appear on a Nintendo system.
“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?”
“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…”
