Say goodbye to your free time, Diablo players, because the third title of the dungeon adventure game is coming to Nintendo Switch this year. Forbes accidentally published an article on it, ignoring the embargo, and Kotaku has confirmed it since… we guess it didn’t really have any choice.
Blizzard Entertainment had previously dropped hints about porting the Diablo series to Nintendo’s portable-and-dockable console in some form. Last week, Blizzard posted a video to Twitter about ‘the future of Diablo’ and mentioned that the studio has multiple Diablo projects in the works.

The Switch version is expected to cost $59.99 (around R900, rounded) and will include Diablo III, the Reaper of Souls expansion and the game’s Necromancer class.
You’ll be able to play with up to four players on one Switch system (although you’ll need extra controllers, of course), so you won’t have to be a lone adventurer on this one. The port is also said to include new Ganondorf-themed armour unique to the Switch edition.
We’re expecting to see the game launch before the end of this year, and it’ll be the first game Blizzard’s released on a Nintendo system in 15 years. If you ask us, it’s a pretty great game with which to kick of the revival. Next up: Overwatch? Wishful thinking much?
