According to ResetEra, Forbes published then deleted a news post that said "Diablo III" will be coming to Nintendo Switch.

Blizzard has been hinting at a potential Nintendo Switch port of Diablo 3 for months now, but it appears Forbes may have let the cat out of the bag a bit too early this week with a report confirming the game's existence.

Eternal Collection will retail for $59.99, which may seem kind of steep for a game that is over six years old at this point, but the Eternal Collection will also have some exclusive content for players to sink their teeth into. The Nintendo Switch Online service, which is set to launch in September, will also be able to host players who want to team up online.

The Switch port of the blockbuster dungeon battler will reportedly launch in late 2018 for $60, and include the game's Reaper of Souls expansion and the DLC Rise of the Necromancer in a package publisher Blizzard is calling Diablo 3: The Eternal Collection. According to images in the initial article, one of those will include a new Ganondorf-themed character skin, while additional cosmetics detailed include a Cucoo pet, Echoes of the Mask wings, and a Triforce portrait banner/flag. The announcement was to have been made tomorrow, but the article went live, though it has been taken down now. The Switch version of the game will also feature numerous ways to play.

Up to 4 players can play on 4 different Switch units wirelessly without an internet connection.

The article (which was clearly under embargo) finally confirmed that the game is coming, and will be titled "Diablo III Eternal Collection".
