Though Diablo III released over six years ago, Blizzard’s popular action-RPG has stood the test of time in the years since, and after an initial leak earlier this week, we now have official confirmation that Diablo is coming to the Nintendo Switch system within the next few months.

After an initial leak came yesterday revealing the title’s release for Switch, Blizzard Entertainment and Nintendo have officially announced that Diablo III: Eternal Collection will arrive for the system later this year, with the collection set for a fall 2018 release window.

As detailed previously, the Switch version of Diablo III: Eternal Collection will feature the original game, the Reaper of Souls expansion, and the Rise of the Necromancer DLC, alongside all of the previous updates released for the title.

Likewise, the previously-confirmed cosmetics based on The Legend of Zelda series (such as an armor skin based on the villainous Ganondorf) and other items from the series were also shown in the game’s official reveal, along with the ability to play with friends either on the same Switch system, locally with several systems, or online.

Diablo III: Eternal Collection will head to Nintendo Switch later this year, and the game is also currently available on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, PC, and Mac.
