Blizzard Entertainment Announced Diablo III Nintendo Switch

UPDATE Aug 17: The Diablo III: Eternal Collection Nintendo Switch pre-orders are now open -- with a release date slated for December 21, 2018. This, however, might be a placeholder date. Nintendo will officially launch the Nintendo Switch Online service in September 2018. Earlier, Blizzard said they plan to launch in 2018, so either way it's just a matter of time. Grab yours while supplies last. --------------------------------------------------------------------

Blizzard Entertainment has officially announced Diablo III Nintendo Switch under the title Diablo III: Eternal Conflict -- which includes Diablo III, the Reaper of Souls expansion, and the Diablo III: Rise of the Necromancer pack for $59.99.

Diablo III Nintendo Switch will also include in-game bonus items such as the Legend of Ganondorf cosmetic armor set, the Tri-Force portrait frame, Echoes of the Mask cosmetic wings, and a chicken pet (which sounds like another Legend of Zelda nod).

Diablo III: Eternal Conflict Nintendo Switch is slated to ship within 2018. No further details yet. However, Nintendo plans to launch the Nintendo Switch Online service on September 2018. That's a pretty good idea when more or less.

Blizzard Entertainment plans to hold a Diablo event at GamesCom 2018, as seen in the schedule app. Blizzplanet's correspondent Handclaw will be there. Follow us on Twitter or Facebook for GamesCom updates.

The Diablo III Nintendo Switch rumor was born after Blizzard Entertainment posted (via Twitter) the message saying "Sweet Dreams," alongside an enigmatic image of a Diablo-shaped night-light plug. The short animated GIF showed the action of switching the light on. Hence: Diablo III Nintendo Switch.

On March 8, I posted an article (analyzing a job opening) titled: "How to Detect if Diablo III Nintendo Switch is Real?".
