Blizzard Officially Confirms Diablo III: Eternal Collection For Switch

Blizzard was most likely going to reveal the Switch version of Diablo 3 at Blizz Con but the guys over at Forbes got a bit ahead of themselves and spilled the beans too early

Most of those warriors who directly faced Hell's armies - and were fortunate enough to survive - went mad from their experiences.

During a meeting in San Francisco earlier this week, senior producer Pete Stilwell said that porting Diablo III was a relatively smooth process, with "conversion on the graphics side" of things presenting the biggest challenge. Mephisto, Diablo, and Baal have been defeated, but the Worldstone, which once shielded the inhabitants of the world of Sanctuary from the forces of both the High Heavens and the Burning Hells, has been destroyed, and evil once again stirs in Tristram.

Nintendo Switch fans also get a few exclusive additions to the game including a Ganondorf cosmetic armor set, Majora's Mask-inspired wings and a cucco pet.

The minions of Hell have grown unfathomably strong since Diablo III's release, but lucky for the High Heavens, reinforcements are on the way.

After an initial leak came yesterday revealing the title's release for Switch, Blizzard Entertainment and Nintendo have officially announced that Diablo III: Eternal Collection will arrive for the system later this year, with the collection set for a fall 2018 release window.

Unholy Trinity - The Diablo III game, the Reaper of Souls expansion, and the Rise of the Necromancer pack are all part of the Eternal Collection: 7 classes, 5 acts, and seasons' worth of demon-smashing. We'll have full hands-on impressions for you this coming Monday, so be sure to check back for a deep-dive into how Diablo 3 handles on Switch. According to Eurogamer, this release will allow players to skip the game's campaign and instead jump right into Adventure Mode's faster pace.

The Eternal Collection is described by Blizzard as the definitive edition of its award-winning action RPG. You can game in online and local wireless multiplayer modes, and up to four players can play on a single Switch.

You'll be able to play solo or in groups of up to four, scoring loot while you take on the hordes of Hell. Forbes made a decision to go ahead and spill the beans, revealing that Diablo 3 is indeed coming to Switch, even though this project was supposed to be unveiled later this year by Blizzard itself.
