Is Diablo 3 Coming to the Nintendo Switch?

It all started with a simple tweet, something fun posted by Blizzard Entertainment in the middle of the night.

However, this particular night light being switched off was Diablo himself!

Perhaps it might be more accurate to say something is switching on over at Blizzard with respect to their widely-popular dungeon-crawling franchise, despite their denial claiming that this just-for-fun tweet had no hidden subtext.

Here's a screenshot in case the page goes down at some point:
So is it something or is it nothing? There is no official announcement yet but all signs are pointing to Diablo 3 going portable on the Nintendo Switch. Sooner or later, we're going to find out for real, and we'll be sure to share anything we learn. Dead Entertainment certainly has you covered in that department.
