Diablo III was the long-awaited follow-up to the cult favorite Diablo II. While the third installment didn’t achieve the same iconic status as Diablo II, people are still playing it to this day more than six years after the original release. In the coming months, they’ll be able to play it on another platform: the Nintendo Switch. After a leaked announcement yesterday, Blizzard has now confirmed that Diablo III is coming to the Switch.
In addition to the content you’ve seen on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox, the Switch release will include a few new goodies. The full extent of the new content is a mystery, but we know there will be a unique armor set that turns players into Ganondorf from The Legend of Zelda, a Tri-Force portrait frame, Echoes of the Mask cosmetic wings, and a chicken pet. This version of the game will also be the first to let players access the fast-paced adventure mode without completing the main quest first. Unlike many Switch games, Diablo III will have cloud saves that you can transfer between consoles. There are currently no plans to let seasoned Diablo III players move their saves from other platforms to the Switch.
Diablo III: Eternal Collection will cost $59.99 when it launches, but we don’t have an exact date. Nintendo won’t get any more accurate than saying the game will probably launch this fall.
