Diablo 3: Eternal Edition raises hell this November on the Nintendo Switch

Satan-Switch

It’s official! Diablo 3 is coming to the Nintendo Switch. It’s also now double-official, because Blizzard’s hellishly addictive RPG also has a proper release date now: November 2. And it ain’t even going to be that big of an install! According to Blizzard, you’ll only need to dedicate around 13.3GB of space to the game if you plan to download it, which ain’t too shabby at all. I’m always amazed at how Nintendo games can do so much with so little, which is coincidentally also what Geoff says about my brain whenever he gets the chance.

So what’s in the Eternal Collection? Pretty much the entirety of Diablo 3, the Reaper of Souls expansion that introduced a certain angel of death to its mythos and the Rise of the Necromancer pack that reintroduced a certain fan favourite character back into the Diablo 3 universe. Beyond that, players can have some fun with Challenge Rifts, partake in Themed Seasons and play around with the Kanai’s Cube which sounds vaguely like a really nasty insult in our local tongue.

Graphically, you’ve got the game running at 60fps with a 960p resolution when you slot it into a Nintendo Switch dock, and undocked the game will stick to the same frame-rate albeit at a 720p resolution. Which sounds just fine and dandy to me. If you missed out on Diablo 3 when it first hit PC, then you missed out on one of the greatest memes of our time.

After that dust had settled and the game had made its way to PlayStation and Xbox consoles, the end result was a gorgeous and action-packed RPG adventure that would tickle the arcane bones of anyone who enjoyed deep dives into the strange world of Diablo’s lore and the mathematical magic of damage floaties popping out of the heads of enemies.

Good stuff, and I have a feeling that Diablo 3 is going to have a hell of an audience who’ll be craving its particular brand of mobile RPG devil-slaying on November 2. What do you reckon? Is Diablo 3 worth a reinvestment just for the sheer fun of having the chance to slay Satan while you wait for your dentist appointment?

      There is. I saw some of it on a stream yesterday evening, and it looks pretty bad in terms of graphics.

      Bear in mind, I don’t own a Switch and I’m using the PC version as my point of reference.

    Might have missed it, but any news on a price tag?

    I really want to get back into some form of ARPG, and this seems like a perfect opportunity. Just hope I finish Hollow Knight by the time this releases.

    I got this on my Xbox360. And then on PC. Even if I had a Switch, I’m done with the game.

    Bring Diablo 4 please.

    How long are they going to milk this game, seriously? I’ve played it on and off from release, and even got it for PS 3 and then PS 4. They need to start a new franchise, or do something in a similar vein, but with more depth and less repetitive gameplay.
