Diablo III is Coming to Nintendo Switch
An article that was accidentally published on Forbes a tad early, shared all the details about the launch but was quickly taken down. Later, Kotaku confirmed it’s upcoming release. You can find the original article screenshots below:
Diablo III Eternal Collection will be joining the Switch which will include the original game, the Reaper of Souls expansion, the Rise of the Necromancer pack and all the updates the game has received so far. An added bonus of an armor set that looks like Ganondorf from The Legend of Zelda will also be available. Further special features include Tri-Force portrait frame, Chicken pet and Echoes of the Mask cosmetic wings.
The Switch version will allow you to play multiplayer, with up to four players in local co-op on the same Switch, up to four players on separate Switches without an internet connection and finally you can co-op online with others online with an internet connection. But as Nintendo Switch will be rolling out their subscription service online multiplayer in September, it looks like you will need one of those too, to play online. Cloud saving will also be a feature supported by the game.
The game will cost $59.99 and will be available sometime later this year. This will be the first Blizzard game on a Nintendo platform in 15 years, seems quite fitting it would one of the most popular action-RPG franchises. Diablo III launched on PC originally back in 2012 and later on console.
