Diablo 3: Eternal Collection brings the beloved RPG to Nintendo Switch

Blizzard Entertainment has announced that Diablo 3 is coming to Nintendo Switch with the aptly named ‘Eternal Collection.’

Originally released for PC and Mac back in 2012, Diablo 3 and all of its downloadable expansion content also made their way to PS4 and Xbox One with a pair of silky smooth ports.

Now, Blizzard’s highly addictive loot-driven RPG can soon be played wherever you want thanks to Nintendo’s hybrid console.

Nintendo Switch players will gain access to the definitive Diablo 3 experience with the Eternal Collection. This includes all expansions, characters and classes in a single package.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Blizzard release without a few pre-order bonuses, which, in this case, features a costume inspired by The Legend of Zelda’s Ganondorf.

A release date for The Eternal Collection hasn’t been confirmed, although Blizzard said in a press release that it will be launching later this year with a hands-on demo available at Gamescom 2018 next week.
