Blizzard Entertainment has dropped some serious hints about bringing the Diablo series to the Nintendo Switch in some form, and it looks like the rumor has been confirmed: Diablo 3 is coming to the Nintendo Switch.

Details from a leaked report state that the Switch version will cost $59.99 and will include Diablo 3, the Reaper of Souls expansion and the game’s Necromancer class. Up to four players can adventure together on a single Nintendo Switch system, and up to four systems can be linked together without a Wi-Fi connection if everyone would like their own screen. The game is also said to include new Ganondorf-themed armor unique to the Switch version.

“It is convention season for Blizzard,” a player on Reddit said. “If this is real, we’ll either get an announcement next week (Gamescom) or the first week of November (BlizzCon). This isn’t the time of year where Blizzard does an announcement without an event to go with it (which is usually what they do at the end of spring/early summer).”

Diablo 3 for the Switch is said to be coming later this year. Just last week, Blizzard said in a video about the future of Diablo that the studio has “multiple Diablo projects in the works; some of them are going to take longer than others but we may have some things to show you later this year.”
