Blizzard's classic and now, well, aged action-RPG has finally made to a console that can be taken on-the-go - the Nintendo Switch. With that in mind, does being able to play Diablo III in handheld mode really make a difference? The answer is Hell Yes - with an excellent port of what is still one of the great action-RPG experiences.
Of course, if you’ve played Diablo III on PC, PS4, or Xbox One recently, then none of this will be new. But, it’s a testament to the team at Blizzard that Diablo III on the Switch is incredibly smooth, features fast loading, and when played in handheld-mode sports crisp visuals that rarely if ever feel inferior to any other version. Now, this is not to say that compared to the crisp 4K PS4 Pro and Xbox One X versions that the Switch release isn’t noticeably blurrier when displayed on a large screen. It is. Also, the lighting effects and a few other minor flourishes are scaled back to ensure a fast frame-rate. But, this is all good news – because Blizzard know full well that where Diablo III shines brightest is when all its elements come together. And you’re in the zone.
