Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition Producer Matt Walker has confirmed the game will introduce local co-op to the Bloody Palace mode.
Walker took to Twitter, to explain the new feature coming to the Bloody Palace.
“Bloody Palace Now has local co-op! So now you’ll be able to play as Dante and Vergil- two players- it’s kinda like if you’ve played Devil May Cry 3 SE before in the Doppleganger Style, there was kinda a hidden Easter Egg where you could pick up a second controler, and play it as two-player.
Now in this one, it’s not Doppleganger, it’s actually Dante and Vergil- separately. And you’ll be able to use any kind of different combination of single Joy-Con, or double Joy-Cons, or pro cons [Pro Controllers].”
The mode can be accessed once players clear the game’s intro mission, and players can select different save data for Dante and Vergil, as well as individual controller set-ups for each player’s controller.
