Here is the Official Announcement Video for Diablo 3 on Nintendo Switch

After yesterday’s early leak, it was only natural that we would see something official today.

Earlier today, Nintendo and Blizzard simultaneously announced (officially this time!) that Diablo III is coming to the Switch. It’s been a long road full of hints, rumors, speculation, and even one big leak, but we’re finally here and the official announcement has been made. The trailer above was released with a lengthier video posted on the official Nintendo of America Twitter account in which Nintendo president and CEO Reggie Fils-Aimé discussed the port with Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime.

You can find that post and their discussion below.

Just to recap, the Nintendo Switch version of Diablo III: Eternal Collection will include the Reaper of Souls expansion as well as the Rise of the Necromancer DLC pack. In addition to that, the game will feature a few Nintendo-exclusive goodies such as a Legend of Zelda Ganondorf armor set, Tri-Force portrait frame, cucco pet, and an "Echoes of the Mask" cosmetic wings appearance item.

You will be able to play online via the Nintendo Switch Online service, which launches in September, or in-person with up to 4 players on either a single Switch or 4 separate consoles linked wirelessly. The latter options will not require an internet connection.

There is no exact release date yet for Diablo III: Eternal Collection, but the official announcement states that the game will be coming this fall. Once we can learn the exact release date, we’ll be sure to share it with you here on Dead Entertainment. In the meantime, you can check out the game’s official website for more information.
