Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition is a special release of Devil May Cry 3 by Capcom Games in January 2006. Devil May Cry 3 is a hack and slash action video game released in 2005. This video game is the direct sequel of Devil May Cry 2 and the third installment of video games published by Capcom Games under the Devil May Cry franchise. Devil May Cry features an action-themed gameplay where users need to defeat wave after wave of enemies in different levels. This game also includes a strong boss level where players would get to fight a strong boss character. Players are equipped with both melee and ranged weapons, which may be unlocked by completing levels and defeating bosses. In Devil May Cry, users are scored based on how complicated they execute attacks and kill moves. The more difficult the attack combination performed, the higher the rating given to players. Devil May Cry 3 also allows users to improve their character’s abilities by assigning points into different skill attributes. These skill attributes include Trickster (speed and agility), Swordmaster (sword and melee weapon skill), Gunslinger (for ranged weapons and pistols), Quicksilver (for slowing down enemies), and Doppelganger, which triggers a character’s shadow to fight enemies.
Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition includes bonus content as well as gameplay changes. Players could now choose to play as Dante’s twin brother, Vergil. Vergil uses only one fighting style called “Dark Slayer”, which is similar to Dante’s Trickster. Vergil is also capable of using various weapons and equipment and can perform special attacks, such as the “Judgment Cut” and “Summoned Swords”. In addition to these, this release also includes additional modes: Bloody Palace, which has 9999 levels, and Turbo Mode, which allows players to play the story mode 20 percent faster. Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition also features an additional boss, the Jester, which can be found in Devil May Cry 3’s cut scenes.
