Stilwell also elaborated on Blizzard's relationship with Nintendo, which may lead to the porting of other titles.

Without going beyond [the Diablo port], I think it was a good exploration into the platform and into the relationship with Nintendo that has been extremely positive, extremely healthy and forward-thinking.

Diablo III on Nintendo Switch, which is called Diablo III Eternal Collection, will come with some unique features, such as some Nintendo-themed extras such as a Ganondorf armor set, local co-op for up to four players and more as well as all of the DLC released for the game.

Diablo III Eternal Collection launches before the end of the year on Nintendo Switch. We will keep you updated on the game as soon as more come in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
