Diablo III confirmed for Nintendo Switch, launches this year

Diablo III confirmed for Nintendo Switch, launches this year

Dubbed the "Eternal Collection", the port apparently contains all of the content added to the action-RPG up to this point, including the Reaper of Souls and Rise of the Necromancer expansions.

Blizzard's first-ever video game for the Nintendo Switch, Diablo III, was unveiled on Wednesday following an article's apparent accidental publication.

Blizzard planned to officially make the revelation tomorrow, but Forbes mistakenly published the information early; though the post has since been removed, Kotaku has the details. It will launch at an MSRP of $59.99.

As you would expect, this version of Diablo III will include a variety of play options, including 4 local players on a single Switch, 4 players on separate Switches via wireless play, and online play with a Nintendo Switch Online subscription. The article's phrasing appears to imply that Diablo III: Eternal Collection will launch on Switch no earlier than Nintendo's "late September" window for its paid-service launch.

Diablo 3: Eternal Collection is rumored to be releasing later this year for the Nintendo Switch. Other exclusive items include a chicken as a pet (presumably a Cucco), "Echoes of the Mask" wings, and a Triforce picture frame.

Blizzard Entertainment did not immediately respond to our questions about the Forbes report.

Despite a rocky launch and a series of revamps that significantly reworked systems like its loot mechanics, Diablo 3 has been a massive success for Blizzard, with more than 30 million units sold across the PC, PS4 and Xbox One versions. Now, we know that one of them is indeed Diablo III for the Nintendo Switch, as someone accidentally broke an embargo last night.
