Diablo III officially announced for Nintendo Switch, releasing this year

Share

As recently as this year Blizzard stated that an Overwatch port would also be hard, hinting that it wasn't in the cards, but they've been slowly working toward it.

You'll be able to play Diablo III on the Switch all by yourself in both docked and handheld mode, and it will run at 60 frames per second in both modes (some games are locked to lower frame rates in handheld mode). The trailer is actually kind of unique since it plays out much like a Nintendo Direct skit with Nintendo of America Reggie Fils Aime and Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime comedically discussing the game.

This report comes Liam Robertson over at Comicbook.com, who has been speaking with sources connected with Nintendo of Europe for what sounds like the better part of the year.

In IGN's New Super Mario Bros. The paid DLC campaign was originally released in 2013 and enjoyed a standalone physical release around the world, too.

Some sources suggest that the rumored Switch release will include new content of some description, although exact details on this appear to be tightly under wraps.

We have also intercepted a potential name being floated for the New Super Mario Bros. U was the second-best console launch title this side of 2001. The name would pay homage to Super Mario Bros. The original Super Mario Bros. received a "Deluxe" version on the Game Boy Color that added feature such as red coin challenges, so we may see something along those lines, although it could just be to unify the game with the previously released Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

It is now unclear when exactly Nintendo intends to release this rumored "Deluxe" edition, but some sources have indicated that it could drop as early as this year.

Some of Robertson's sources say that the game could be out by the end of 2018, but if that's accurate, one has to wonder why Nintendo didn't announce the port at E3. We will keep you updated on the game as soon as more come in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
