Diablo III Is Heading To Nintendo Switch Later This Year


Kotaku reports that Diablo III for the Nintendo Switch was meant to be announced tomorrow, but Forbes pressed the publish button a little too early.

In it, we saw hints that Diablo III will be released for the Nintendo Switch, but actual confirmation of the plan wasn't provided. Dubbed the Eternal Collection, it will feature both expansions and cost $59.99. It will come with the base game, as well as the Reaper of Souls and Rise of the Necromancer expansions in addition to all other post-launch content that has been released for Diablo 3. The Nintendo Switch Online service, which is set to launch in September, will also be able to host players who want to team up online. On the local side, up to four players can play split-screen on a single Switch console, and four Switch units can be tethered together locally for a full-on handheld experience.

"Diablo III: Eternal Collection" will reportedly support up to four players on the game, either local or online.

Just last week, Blizzard announced that it has 'multiple' new Diablo projects now in the works.

The package will also include a handful of Switch-exclusive Zelda-themed goodies, including a Ganondorf armor set, which you can equip to various classes, a Tri-Force portrait frame, a cucco pet, and Echoes of the Mask cosmetic wings. As previously stated, rumors have been circulating for months that a Switch version has been in the works, and Blizzard itself has teased that it has multiple Diablo projects in development.

The article (which was clearly under embargo) finally confirmed that the game is coming, and will be titled "Diablo III Eternal Collection".
