Diablo III will pick up the story twenty years after the events of Diablo II.
The Diablo III Eternal Collection reveal trailer for Nintendo Switch briefly shows off an actual Nintendo Switch with Joy-Con's that we've never seen before. But we'll update this post if we're wrong about that or we hear back officially.
Teased earlier this year via a light switch, leaked yesterday accidentally by Forbes, and then non-accidentally by Kotaku after they picked up on Forbes' error, it has always been assumed by many fans and pundits that Diablo 3 would eventually be ported to the Nintendo Switch.
Another day, another report that Overwatch could, one day, come to the Nintendo Switch. Eternal Collection is coming to Nintendo Switch later this year, offering the same all-in-one package as on PS4 and Xbox One, including all the meaty Reaper of Souls and Rise of the Necromancer content. A Ganondorf armor transmog, Majora's Mask wings, and a cucco pet are also confirmed. There are now no plans to let seasoned Diablo III players move their saves from other platforms to the Switch. "By partnering with companies like Blizzard, we're able to create new ways of engaging with beloved content. Blizzard and Nintendo share a commitment to redefining the way people play games, and with Diablo III Eternal Collection for Nintendo Switch, that means players can now explore the vast world of Sanctuary anytime they like, and anywhere they go". Unlike many Switch games, Diablo III will have cloud saves that you can transfer between consoles. Handheld mode will run at 720p (the resolution of the LCD), and the console mode will be 960p. The game will also support 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.
Diablo III: Eternal Collection will cost $59.99 when it launches, but we don't have an exact date.
