Report: Diablo III is Coming to Nintendo Switch


Eurogamer is reporting that Blizzard has a Nintendo Switch port of Diablo III in the works.

Quote:
Last week, Blizzard set tongues wagging with an apparent tease for a Diablo game on Nintendo Switch. The image - of a Diablo night light being repeatedly switched on and off - felt fairly deliberate.

But then, after hours of fan excitement, an official response emerged from within Blizzard apparently designed to dampen down the flames: "As of now, we do not have any current plans to announce Diablo for Switch," a spokesperson told us.

So, what's going on? Well, while Blizzard makes its mind up, Eurogamer sources have told us that yes - the project is very much in production. And as you might expect, the game will be a port of Diablo 3.

Our sources could not confirm whether the game's Reaper of Souls and Rise of the Necromancer expansions will be included - but at this point it would be surprising if they were not.

I'll wait to see what features it has that make it stand out from the PC game (which is on life support). I'd get back into D3 if they'd release an expac, but that will never happen.

Diablo 3 in the end is a bit of a disappointment at its end game. I enjoyed the heck out of it for a good while, but there are so few viable builds and the end game is essentially pointless.

Path of Exile is a far superior game. It's also far more difficult, and has an end game that has some meat on its bones.

Really a shame, too. I played and enjoyed D3 for what it is, but I haven't been back in a long, long time and I don't miss it.

The depth to Path of Exile can't be beat but the game is brutal if you are playing it right.

D3 gets a spruce of new life every season when they tweak things and give the classes new novelty build armor sets but that's about it. I don't regret the time I've spent in the game and if I never played it before I might pick it up. Not sure the Switch would be my platform of choice though.

Believe me, I know. I earned enough xp to get to level 91 four or five times over, but the xp death penalty kept me at 90 for a long while. Don't think I'll ever cap out at 100, lol. Seems an impossible dream.
