'Diablo III' (ALL) Eternal Collection Comes To Nintendo Switch

Diablo III is an action RPG where you create a hero from one of five distinct classes, each equipped with an array of spells and abilities, unraveling an epic storyline and engaging in combat with hordes of monsters and challenging bosses.

Diablo III is developed as the definitive action role-playing game, and a true continuation of the Diablo series. Players will create a hero from one of five distinct classes, such as barbarian or witch doctor, each equipped with an array of spells and abilities. As these heroes adventure through rich and varied settings, unraveling an epic storyline and engaging in combat with hordes of monsters and challenging bosses, they’ll grow in experience and ability and acquire items of incredible power.

The game takes place on Sanctuary, a world of dark fantasy. Unbeknownst to most of its inhabitants, Sanctuary was saved some twenty years ago from the demonic forces of the underworld by a few brave and powerful heroes. Most of those warriors who directly faced Hell’s armies -- and were fortunate enough to survive -- went mad from their experiences. And most of the others have buried their haunted memories and pushed the horrors from their thoughts. In Diablo III, players will return to Sanctuary to confront evil in its many forms once again.

Diablo III will pick up the story twenty years after the events of Diablo II. Mephisto, Diablo, and Baal have been defeated, but the Worldstone, which once shielded the inhabitants of the world of Sanctuary from the forces of both the High Heavens and the Burning Hells, has been destroyed, and evil once again stirs in Tristram. Playing as a hero from one of five distinct character classes, players will acquire powerful items, spells, and abilities as they explore new and familiar areas of Sanctuary and battle hordes of demons to safeguard the world from the horrors that have arisen.

Forbes seems to have jumped the gun on what was an embargoed announcement for tomorrow, confirming that Blizzard is indeed bringing Diablo III to Switch.

Diablo III: Eternal Edition will bundle the Reaper of Souls and Rise of the Necromancer expansion, and is scheduled for later this year for $59.99 USD.

The bundle will also include a few Switch exclusive items, such as a Legend of Ganondorf cosmetic armor set, a Tri-Force portrait frame, a Chicken pet, and and Echoes of the Mask cosmetic wings.


Diablo III: Eternal Edition will feature 4-player local (on one Switch), wireless co-op support as well as online-play, and cloud saves through Nintendo's Online service which will launch in late September.
