All three games star the title character as their protagonist. The first game in the series was directed by Hideki Kamiya, who created the Devil May Cry franchise when he was working in Capcom. It was the third title in Platinum's four-game contract with Sega. Although it was Platinum's most commercially successful game at that time, the company was disappointed with its sales. Platinum was initially working with Sega to create the sequel, but Sega decided to cancel the game during the game's development. According to producer Atsushi Inaba, the game would not have been possible if they did not get the funding and the support from Nintendo. The game was directed by Yusuke Hashimoto, and Kamiya has a supervision role. While sales have not been fully disclosed, by March 2018, Nintendo confirmed the Switch version had sold 400,000 copies during its first nine weeks, compared to the 300,000 copies the Wii U version sold during the same period. A third game in the series was announced by Nintendo at The Game Awards 2017. She also appears as a downloadable character in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, and as an unlockable character in the sequel Super Smash Bros.
