Only You Can Defy The Darkness In Diablo III: Eternal Collection

Blizzard finally returns to a Nintendo console with Diablo III: Eternal Collection, which released today for the Nintendo Switch. We’ve been busy playing the Switch version of the game (a review should be ready early next week), and so far we’re impressed with all of the work that went into getting this game to run smoothly on the TV and in portable mode. The online has been impeccable so far, although we’ve had to use the PS4 party chat to communicate since it doesn’t appear to have any voice chat built in and doesn’t use the Switch mobile app. Perhaps the preferred way of playing will be getting together in person and teaming up with three friends.

 

 

OFFICIAL PR:

Ages ago, angels and demons birthed your world in a forbidden union. Now they’ve come to claim it. Stand tall among Sanctuary’s meek and wicked to battle walking corpses, horrifying cultists, fallen seraphs, and the Lords of Hell.

Unholy Trinity
The Diablo III game, the Reaper of Souls expansion, and the Rise of the Necromancer pack are all part of the Eternal Collection: 7 classes, 5 acts, and seasons’ worth of demon-smashing.

Nintendo Switch™ Exclusives
Discover pieces of Zelda’s world in Sanctuary. The Eternal Collection on Switch™ includes the Cucco companion pet, a Triforce portrait frame, and an exclusive transmogrification set that will let your heroes sport Ganondorf’s iconic armor. You’ll also receive unique cosmetic wings.

Defy the Darkness
You’re a surrounded world’s only defense against Heaven and Hell. Arm yourself with a Joy-Con™ or the Pro Controller, and choose from 7 dark fantasy classes, each with its own way to slay.

Assemble the Perfect Arsenal
As you charge through Diablo III’s five story acts, you’ll collect gear from Sanctuary’s furthest reaches, including legendary items that change your entire playstyle and armor sets that provide dynamic bonuses as you uncover more pieces.

Your Path to Power
Diablo III’s power-building system is flexible enough for an afternoon or a full season. Push back the Burning Hells with spears, storms, and zombie dogs—over 800 unique abilities to unlock and master.

Eternal Replayability
Evil is never vanquished forever. Whether you’re testing yourself against new difficulty settings, playing through the epic story campaign, searching for the perfect skill combo, expanding your collection of gear, racing through random dungeons, or traveling Sanctuary anew each season, you’ll always have a fresh challenge to seek out.

It’s Dangerous to Go Alone
Jump into local, action-RPG multiplayer with up to three friends, and crush demons from your comfiest couch cushions, no internet required—or fill out the ranks of your party online*. You can play Diablo III shared-screen on a single Nintendo Switch™, remotely on up to four Nintendo Switch ™ consoles, or combine TV and handheld play.
