Blizzard officially announced today that Diablo III: Eternal Collection is indeed coming to Nintendo Switch in both physical and digital formats sometime in 2018. Those who will be attending Gamescom 2018, Fan Expo 2018 in Toronto and PAX West 2018 in Seattle will have a chance to play it.
Here’s the official overview of the game via Blizzard:
The definitive version of Blizzard Entertainment’s acclaimed Diablo III is coming to the Nintendo Switch! The Diablo III Eternal Collection includes the original Diablo III, the critically-acclaimed Reaper of Souls expansion, the Rise of the Necromancer pack, all content updates and console-specific features, an assortment of bonus items exclusive to Nintendo Switch, and a lifetime’s worth of adventure.
Diablo III on the Nintendo Switch takes full advantage of the console’s flexibility and versatility with multiple intuitive and ultra-responsive controller configuration options. Whether you prefer dual-wielding Joy-Cons, sitting elbow-to-elbow on the couch with your friends using a single Joy-Con each, or entering the fray armed with a Pro Controller, you’ll be able to slay your way. Up to four players can embark on grand cooperative crusades to cleanse Sanctuary—side by side in front of a single Nintendo Switch screen or linking multiple consoles together wirelessly.
