Diablo 3 has been officially announced for Nintendo Switch after recent leaks and Blizzard has mentioned that they put a lot of work into bringing this game to Switch. It took Blizzard almost eight to nine months to port it thus they are going to offer us 60 FPS across all modes whether it’s handheld or docked.
Despite being a hybrid, everyone is always concerned about frame rates and resolution on Switch. While speaking to Eurogamer, Blizzard senior producer Pete Stilwell made it very clear that the Switch version of Diablo 3 will run at 60 frames per second in handheld mode and docked mode.
The only difference will be in the terms of resolution which is going to be 960p in docked mode and 720p in portable which will not be that much of an issue since you can finally play it on the go.
Blizzard is more than just excited to bring the game to Switch as they worked hard on it for months with 9 members working with Nintendo, who also were collaborating with Iron Galaxy, which is known for their port of Skyrim to Switch.
Now that’s not all as Nintendo Switch version of Diablo 3 will also bring us some exclusive content with its edition called ‘Eternal Collection’. This collection includes Reaper of Souls and Rise of the Necromancer expansions, along with all the content that has been ever released for the game. It’s going to cost you $59.99.
Diablo 3 will also include some exclusive in-game content for the players including the Legend of Ganondorf cosmetic armour set, Chicken pet, Echoes of the Mask cosmetic wings and Tri-Force portrait frame.
As for the game, you can play it with up to four people on your Switch or with four people with on different Switch consoles wirelessly or team up online when the Nintendo Switch online service arrives in September.
