Forbes did leak this information a few days before but we finally got full confirmation with not one, but two announcement videos for Diablo III for Nintendo Switch!
They come by way of the official Diablo YouTube Channel as well
Some other information was brought forth to us as well. There will be cloud saves so you can play on any Nintendo Switch, providing they already have it installed.

Diablo III for Nintendo Switch version will actually be the Eternal Collection! Which I believe is the most up to date game so far!
Now, what’s this about new Joy-cons I mentioned in the headline? Well its all speculation right now, but in the trailer, there are ash-grey/light grey Joy-Con’s attached to the Nintendo Switch in the trailer. Now Nintendo is VERY particular to the colors of their consoles and what is in the advertisements of their products.
If you missed it in the video, here is a screenshot.
These are clearly either ash-grey Joy-cons. Which is fitting for Diablo III.
What do you think of the trailer? Are we possibly getting new Joy-con colors? Let me know in the comments what you think!
