With the cat fully out of the bag thanks to a leaked story, the folks at Blizzard have finally went ahead and admitted that a Diablo 3 Nintendo Switch release is indeed on the way this year, sharing the information in a new video and landing page.
The Diablo 3 Eternal Collection will bundle the complete Diablo 3 experience in one package for the Switch version, including Reaper of Souls and Rise of the Necromancer. The game will be available in local co-op play in all of the forms the Switch has to offer or in online co-op. In both cases up to four players can join in, though online play will require a subscription to Nintendo’s online service once it launches in September.
In addition, the Switch edition is getting some exclusive cosmetic content in the form of a Ganondorf transmog set, a Cucco pet, a Triforce portrait frame, and a unique set of cosmetic wings.
While a firm release date is not confirmed yet, Nintendo Switch owners can look forward to Diablo 3’s arrival sometime in the fall. A video can be seen below.
Welp, it was bound to happen at one point or another. While this certainly isn’t the sort of new Diablo thing we are absolutely hoping for out of the team’s earlier tease of multiple projects, we’re still glad that owners of the system will have one of the finer ARPG experiences available to them. And besides, more Diablo fans are always a good thing.
