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:

Diablo III: Eternal Collection players can look forward to a big update for the game. Blizzard is introducing Season 16, featuring a brand-new buff, new rewards, improvements, and more.

The update will release at 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET / 1 AM in the UK (January 19) / 2 AM in Europe (January 19). We have the full patch notes below.

In the past, Diablo III has hosted a Darkening of Tristram event to celebrate the anniversary of the original Doom. It’s back up and running once again – now for the first time on Switch.

Throughout January, players can receive certain rewards and experience the original Diablo levels. We have full details on the event below.

At BlizzCon last weekend, Eurogamer spoke with Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan. One of the questions asked concerened the possibility of bringing the game to Switch. While there still isn’t really any news either way, Kaplan did say the team is “very open-minded”.

Here’s the full exchange:

Digital Foundry published a new tech analysis for Diablo III – Eternal Collection on Switch today. We learn more about the game’s resolution, frame rate, and more.

Diablo III’s final docked resolution mostly sits at 900p. This can decrease though, with Digital Foundry recording 1344×756 – usually during high action with many effects. Portable resolution tends to sit at the native 720p, but it can drop to 960×540.

Today’s Nintendo Treehouse: Live presentation ended with a look at Diablo III: Eternal Collection. Check out the full recording below.

Update: As we originally thought earlier this week with the initial rumors, the Loot Goblin amiibo is GameStop exclusive.


Original: Blizzard has made it official: a Diablo III amiibo is happening. Loot Goblin is getting its own figure, the company just announced.

Loot Goblin can be used in Diablo III on Switch to “summon your own portal to untold riches”. It’ll launch in December.
