There are certainly some pretty decent original games on the Nintendo Switch. Super Mario Odyssey is a prime example. Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is another good example. But truth be told, one of the greatest strengths of the Switch is the collection of “remastered” ports and “deluxe” editions. I really like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, for instance, even though it’s basically the Wii U game with everything unlocked.

And it’s not just Nintendo doing this with Mario-themed content either. I’ve been having a ball with Fallout Shelter, even though the game originally game out three years ago and is available on a variety of platforms. And then there’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, also from Bethesda. And if you want even more “adult” content, there’s Doom. And soon, there will be Diablo III as well.

And yes, it’s taking on exactly the same approach as all these other ports.

With Diablo III Eternal Collection, Nintendo Switch gamers will finally be able to play a game that was originally released way back in 2012 for PC. It was subsequently ported over to Xbox 360 and PS3 the following year, and then to the PS4 and Xbox One in 2014.

Set for release later this year, Diablo III Eternal Collection combines the original game with the Reaper of Souls expansion from 2014, the Rise of the Necromancer pack from 2017, and all the game updates that have been released thus far. To add a little Nintendo-themed flavor to Diablo III, the Switch edition also gets armor to make you look like Ganondorf.

Expect Diablo III Eternal Collection to hit the Nintendo Switch later this year with an anticipated MSRP of $59.99. You’ll get four-player local co-op (both same machine and on four separate consoles), as well as online multiplayer. This is the first game from Blizzard to hit a Nintendo console in 15 years. The last time that happened, they ported some SNES titles to the GBA.
