One of the worst kept secrets of the year did not just come as a shock when Diablo 3 officially announced Nintendo Switch back in August.
But it was a surprise to hear senior producer Pete Stilwell claim that Diablo 3 would run at 60 frames per second in docked and handheld mode.
Granted, Diablo 3 was released for the first time six years ago – making it old in video game terms – but it’s still a bumper game with a lot of content.  The Nintendo Switch version alone includes the core game, all previously released expansions, seven character classes and quick access to adventure mode.
There are also a series of Switch-exclusive bonuses, including some Legend of Zelda-themed goodies. [1

It was a real concern for a modern side of the Diablo 3 Eternal Collection for Nintendo Switch.
Fortunately, my fear was unjustified, because the Diablo 3 campaign seems to work perfectly.
While it is worth checking out the inevitable Digital Foundry analysis of the final release, Diablo 3’s demon-slaying action is more than ever.
The action is intuitive and controls are uncomplicated, making it easy to sort through your stash and equip your most powerful skills and objects.
Fact – and we’re getting tired of saying this – but Diablo 3 seems like another of the games. It’s perfect for Switch.
Whether you play the campaign or adventure mode – which is practically available from the start – Diablo 3’s demo-slaying / loot-gathering game slots enable bite-sized sessions.
Better than you can play employees offline and on the go, meaning you can get a lot of money with your friends on their way to work or during lunch break.
Maybe it should not come as a surprise that a game was released all the way back in 2012, keeping the Nintendo switch so good.
But Diablo 3 is a demanding game, and very important, one that was intended to be played on a computer with mouse and keyboard.
Porting PC games over to regular consoles is a big challenge, to see that Diablo 3 runs smoothly and managing so comfortably is an encouraging sign for the future.
And if you’re a lost player or a complete beginner, Diablo 3 Switch seems to be the perfect jumping point.
Now crossed the fingers we get the surveillance gate.
Diablo 3 has a November 2 release date on the Nintendo Switch. Express Online will get a full review closer to launch.
