A few weeks after the game’s official announcement, Diablo III now has a release date for the Nintendo Switch. The Diablo III Eternal Collection has been teased for Nintendo’s console all year long but we’ll finally be able to get our hands on it in November.
During the Nintendo Direct stream last night, it was revealed that the Diablo III Eternal Collection will arrive on the 2nd of November. This puts the game well ahead of Super Smash Bros Ultimate and a few weeks ahead of Pokémon Let’s Go. We’re expecting more Diablo news in November too, although this time around it will be at Blizzcon. Blizzard confirmed earlier that it has ‘multiple’ new Diablo projects currently in the works. Diablo for the Switch seems to just be the beginning.
The Switch version of Diablo III will have some exclusive content. This includes a Ganondorf-themed armour set, a Tri-Force portrait frame, a Zelda-themed pet and Echoes of the Mask cosmetic wings. The Switch release will also include Diablo III’s two expansions, Reaper of Souls and Rise of the Necromancer.
The Switch version can be played in both docked and handheld modes. Four player co-op is available on a single Switch, four players can play together on four different Switch units wirelessly without an internet connection and finally, players can also team up online via Nintendo’s new Switch Online service. Switch Online subscribers will also get to take advantage of cloud saves with this game.
KitGuru Says: Diablo III for Switch has seen a very quick turnaround from announcement to release. Now we just need to wait for November. Will any of you be picking up Diablo on the Switch?
