The rumor of Diablo III coming to the Nintendo Switch isn’t a new one, but things heated up a few days ago when Blizzard posted the following video to its Twitter account:

It shows a Diablo-themed nightlight being “switched” on and off. Blizzard later came out and said “We can assure you we’re not that clever…meant to be a fun community engagement piece. We have nothing to announce”. Case closed? Nope!
Eurogamer has several sources indicating that Blizzard is indeed prepping Diablo III for the Switch. This wouldn’t exactly be a stretch since the game already runs on the Xbox 360 and PS3, which are lower powered than the Switch. According to Eurogamer:
So, what’s going on? Well, while Blizzard makes its mind up, Eurogamer sources have told us that yes – the project is very much in production. And as you might expect, the game will be a port of Diablo 3.
Our sources could not confirm whether the game’s Reaper of Souls and Rise of the Necromancer expansions will be included – but at this point it would be surprising if they were not.
So, what do you think? Will we battling demonic forces on our Switch later this year? Time will tell!
