With a fun little video chat between Blizzard CEO and co-founder Mike Morhaime and Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime. The accompanying gameplay trailer looks pretty good too with snippets of what we assume is Diablo III running on Switch hardware. The only thing missing from the official announcement is a specific release date, so all we can do is place a big circle around the end of 2018 as the Dawn of Diablo Switch.
"The Eternal Collection is the definitive version of Diablo III, and we’re thrilled to team up with Nintendo to unleash it for Nintendo Switch gamers around the world later this year,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “Bringing the world together through epic entertainment is core to our mission at Blizzard—we can’t wait to welcome a new generation of demon-slayers to Sanctuary.”
"At Nintendo, we're huge fans of rich and compelling games that speak to players around the world," said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America President and COO. "By partnering with companies like Blizzard, we're able to create new ways of engaging with beloved content. Blizzard and Nintendo share a commitment to redefining the way people play games, and with the Diablo III Eternal Collection for Nintendo Switch, that means players can now explore the vast world of Sanctuary anytime they like, and anywhere they go."
As per yesterday's leak we get confirmation that Diablo III for Switch will support full four-player co-op, system link, and the ability to team up via the Nintendo Switch Online service.
Plus, some pretty sweet Ganondorf armour for both the Barbarian and Crusader.
