Blizzard working on Diablo 3 port for Nintendo Switch – report

Last Tuesday, Blizzard's official Twitter account posted a cryptic tweet featuring someone "switching" a Diablo nightlight on and off, setting off a chain reaction of speculation throughout the community, many of which believed this to be evidence of a Nintendo Switch port of Diablo III.

According to Eurogamer's sources, the Diablo III Nintendo Switch version is now "in production".

Third-party developers have been lining up to bring their strongest games to Nintendo's hit console and unlike many of them, Diablo III is relatively old so its not likely to be too taxing on Nintendo's hardware. According to a new report from Eurogamer, that may change in the near future.

Now it appears that statement was misdirection: Eurogamer sources have confirmed that the project is very much in production, but it's not yet clear whether expansions Reaper of Souls and Rise of the Necromancer will be included. Until then, we can dream about how awesome Diablo III on Switch sounds right now.

Police believe the situation started from a domestic situation, as parents were on campus to pick students up for spring break. Central Michigan University has about 23,000 students in Mount Pleasant, which is about 70 miles north of Lansing.

An acclaimed console version of the game came to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2013, and PlayStation 4 and Xbox One the following year.

Fans of the video game series soon raised suggestions on what message Blizzard was trying to put across following the interesting social media post.

"Diablo III" originally launched all the way back in 2012 and is still strongly supported by Blizzard in 2018, with regular updates adding new content for players to see. The ill-fated "Starcraft: Ghost" would have been released for Nintendo Gamecube, but that version was scrapped before the game was canceled entirely.

All in all, a Diablo 3 Switch port looks pretty likely.
