Recently, Blizzard Entertainment indicated their work on multiple Diablo III-related projects.

Today, it looks Blizzard has indeed been working on a port of their critically acclaimed RPG.
Over on resetera, a leaked article—that has since been taken down—details the new features for a Nintendo Switch version of the action-RPG. Allegedly, it will be called Diablo III – ‘Eternal Collection’ and will include the base game alongside DLC: Reaper of Souls and Rise of the Necromancer. All for the retail price of $59.99. However, it wouldn’t be a definitive Nintendo product without some exclusive bonuses.
According to the leaked piece, the Nintendo Switch version of Diablo III will include the Legend of Ganondorf cosmetic armor set, Tri-Force portrait frame, Chicken pet, and Echoes of the Mask cosmetic wings. Since nothing’s confirmed until it’s confirmed, feel free to take this information with a grain of salt.
There will also be multiple ways to play on your Nintendo Switch. Blizzard have optimized the options for playing with friends and family. Naturally, that includes the ability to play docked or on the go.
- “Up to 4 players can play together on a single Switch.
