Not long ago a Diablo developer said that we could expect some Diablo content before the end of the year and it seems that that comes in the form of Diablo 3 for the Nintendo Switch. Forbes originally posted an article on the port although their article has since been deleted. This is probably due to Blizzard not having made their own announcement yet. Several people across the internet have claimed to have seen the article on Forbes and some have snagged a few screenshots before Forbes took down the article.
According to the original Forbes article, when Diablo 3 comes out on the Nintendo Switch it will include both the Reaper of Souls expansions as well as the Rise of the Necromancer expansion. Furthermore, some interesting new features have also been added to the game. Obviously, you will be able to play with other people who have their own Switch (although it will require Nintendo’s online service), but you can also play with 4 other players on a single Switch. This means that you can invite a few friends over and play the game couch co-op style. If this doesn’t suit your needs, you can instead all bring your own Nintendo Switch and play the game together wirelessly without needing an internet connection.
Since the game is coming out on the Nintendo Switch they have included a cool Nintendo-related cosmetic, in the form of a Ganondorf armor set. Now you will be able to cleave your way through thousands of demons in style.
Although Diablo 3 on the Nintendo Switch sounds absolutely fantastic, we are still left wondering how well it will run. Since the base game comes with both expansions this will make it one of the largest games on the Nintendo Switch so we will just have to hope that everything runs smoothly. Not every port that has come to the Nintendo Switch was a success but since it’s Blizzard that’s working on it there’s no real need to feel worried.
No real release date has been mentioned in the original article although it was said to be coming out later this year and the game will cost $59.99.
