Diablo III: Eternal Collection

Blizzard finally returned to Nintendo platforms last year with Diablo III: Eternal Collection. Not only that, but the game even has a unique collaboration with Zelda-inspired content.

Speaking with GamesBeat, Blizzard head J. Allen Brack was asked about what it was like working with Nintendo, and how Diablo III turned out on Switch. Brack shared the following:

“We’re super-happy. Nintendo’s been a great partner. We’re a fan of that platform, a fan of Nintendo, a fan of the Nintendo IP, a fan of the Switch. It’s a really good platform and it’s really fun to play on. Different games have come about that are good experiences. Part of it is Nintendo love, plus thinking that the Diablo experience would be great on that platform. I’m glad you enjoyed it. I loved it.”

As a follow up on the comments above, Brack was then asked about the possibility of other collaborations with Nintendo. In response, Brack said:

“It’s not ridiculous. We’d like to have – we think of it as another platform. It has some unique properties that the Xbox and Sony platforms don’t have. Thinking about what games make sense for that type of console is something we’ll never stop doing.”
