IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The minions of Hell have never been stronger, but reinforcements have
arrived! Blizzard Entertainment announced today that Diablo III?
Eternal Collection? is available now for Nintendo
Switch, enlisting a new legion of heroes into the eternal struggle
against the Burning Hells.
The Eternal Collection includes every feature, refinement, and
upgrade added to Diablo III to date, including the critically
acclaimed Reaper of Souls? expansion, and last year’s Rise of
the Necromancer? pack, as well as platform-exclusive bonus items
such as a cosmetic armor set inspired by Ganondorf, the iconic villain
from The Legend of Zelda series. With a five-act story
campaign that spans the deadly world of Sanctuary, an endlessly
playable Adventure Mode, and seven powerful classes to
master, Diablo III Eternal Collection is the perfect
all-in-one package for novice demon-slayers, and veterans eager to
cleanse Sanctuary on the go.
“The Eternal Collection delivers everything Diablo III has
to offer to Nintendo Switch players, and the great conflict between the
High Heavens and the Burning Hells is now in their hands,” said J. Allen
Brack, President of Blizzard Entertainment. “We look forward to sharing
all of the challenges, adventures, and sweet, sweet loot with our newest
allies in Sanctuary.”
Players looking to commemorate the arrival of the Lord of Terror to
Nintendo’s newest system also have the option of purchasing the Nintendo
Switch Diablo III Eternal Collection Bundle—forged
specifically for Sanctuary’s newest heroes and styled to evoke the dark
visage of the Lord of Terror. Available starting today, the bundle
includes a Diablo III-themed Nintendo Switch system and dock, a Diablo
III-edition carrying case, and a download code for Diablo III
Heroes hoping for an edge in their crusades will want to take advantage
of Diablo III Eternal Collection’s amiibo?
support—and seize a Treasure Goblin amiibo, available in
December. Scanning the Treasure Goblin amiibo opens a portal to Greed’s
Domain, the mythical Treasure Realm replete with riches and guarded
by the Baroness herself. In addition, players can scan any available
amiibo figure once per day to spawn packs of powerful Champion monsters
to battle for experience and loot.
Diablo III Eternal Collection has been honed for the Nintendo
Switch system, affording players full access to its deep, rewarding
gameplay, whether they use a Joy-Con or a Pro Controller. The full suite
of multiplayer options guarantees that friends can always play together
anytime and anywhere. Up to four players can link their consoles
wirelessly, connect through the Nintendo Switch Online service, or share
a screen on a single Nintendo Switch system.
Diablo III Eternal Collection for Nintendo Switch is available at
retail stores everywhere and digitally through the Nintendo eShop at a
suggested price of $59.99. For more information, visit https://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/diablo-3-switch.
