Devil May Cry 3 : Special Edition

At the 2005 Tokyo Game Show, Capcom announced there would be a special edition of Devil May Cry 3.It included a number of gameplay changes and additional content. Most notably, players could now choose to play as Dante's twin brother, Vergil. Other changes included an added survival mode called "Bloody Palace" with a total of 9999 levels; a new boss fight early in the game, with optional fights later; a "Turbo Mode" for 20 percent faster gameplay; and a continue system which can revive the character instantly, or allow the player to restart the fight they just lost as many times as they like. The game also has rebalanced difficulty.

Vergil has only one style, "Dark Slayer" (similar to Dante's "Trickster" style), which includes evasive maneuvers, and can be leveled up twice, just like Dante's initial four styles. He has three weapons: his O-katana called Yamato, the Beowulf gauntlets and greaves, and the Force Edge broadsword. He has only one ranged attack, "Summoned Swords", which creates magical swords that can be used for a variety of effects.

The new boss is a character from the first version, Jester. In the first edition of Devil May Cry 3, Jester was a plot-important character who was encountered several times during cutscenes, but never actually fought. In Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition, Jester is a semi-optional boss (insofar as the first fight with him is mandatory but the later encounters can be skipped) who can be fought three times.

Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition was released on January 24, 2006 for US$19.99 as part of the PlayStation 2 Greatest Hits Collection. It was later confirmed that the PlayStation 2 version of the game would also be released in Europe.

On February 1, 2006, Ubisoft announced that they would be publishing a PC version of the game developed by SourceNext.The European PC version was the first to come out, even before the Special Edition was released for the PlayStation 2 in that region, being released on June 28, 2006. The North American version was released on October 16, 2006. The game was published in Japan on June 30, 2006.

In Europe, the PlayStation 2 version came out on September 29, 2006 for GB£14.99 and was slightly different from the North American version. Vergil and Bloody Palace mode were unlocked from the start, but the Turbo mode was taken out of the game.

Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition was also included in a 5th Anniversary Collection of Devil May Cry games, a collection of the first three games.
