Our friends at Forbes broke embargo by announcing that Diablo III is coming to the Nintendo Switch. But don’t worry – apart from stopping information, news, physical goods, and the growth of foreign economies, embargoes mean nothing. After a quick back-and-forth with our lawyer (update: he no longer works for us), we’ve agreed on an optimal solution. The following announcement will give you as much truth as the law dictates we can talk about:
Diablo III: Eternal Collection may or not be coming to the Switch in 2018.
The Switch version might include all previous DLC, including the Reaper of Souls expansion and the Necromancer class from last year’s Rise of the Necromancer. Four players can probably play on a single Switch, or maybe they could connect four Switch units using local play. Diablo III can even use the Nintendo Switch’s upcoming online service… we heard.
And because it’s Nintendo, there is a high probability we could see exclusive Nintendo DLC for the game, such as exclusive portraits and a cosmetic Ganondorf armor set.
Most importantly, the game is rumored to be $59.99 MSRP.
The Switch is currently a haven for ports, so a Diablo III port is entirely plausible. Alas, we have no idea if these rumors are true. If only we had some sort of confirmation.
We’ll have to wait until the embargo breaks to reveal any information.
