The game that holds the title ‘PC platform's fastest-selling game’, Diablo 3, which lost its title to Minecraft later on, affected the market just like a bomb in the year it was released. Over the years the production has changed considerably, it was adapted to old and the new generation of consoles after the PC version. Now, Diablo 3: Eternal Collection is available on Nintendo Switch. The colourful Switch library with Zelda, Mario, now has a dark game in it.
Diablo 3: Eternal Collection Nintendo Switch Review
I'm not going to review the game which was released in 2012 here. Diablo 3 is released as Diablo 3: Eternal Collection for Switch. You can have any downloadable content in the game with this package, which contains all the contents and packages available for Diablo 3 up to now. Contents like hard-to-get pets and wings that are on other platforms also come with this package.
With the exception of the controls on the gameplay side, the Nintendo Switch version of Diablo 3 is made for the ones who want to play the same game with ease. You can lay on your bed and get lost in the Diablo world for hours until your back starts to hurt. The most distinctive feature of Diablo 3's Nintendo Switch version is its ability to use Joy-Con support sufficiently. As like as the most Switch games, you can play Diablo 3 with your friends wherever you want depending on the number of Joy-Cons. The production which supports this feature in a good way managed to get a high score from us.
As someone who played the game for hundreds of hours on the PC platform, I can personally say that I played Diablo 3 more comfortably on Nintendo Switch. The biggest minus of playing games on the PC is the fact that you get tired of sitting for hours, the Nintendo Switch eliminates this problem.
However, since the ergonomics of the TV consoles are better than the Switch, it is sometimes difficult to focus on both holding Switch and Diablo. As the aspect ratio of the game is adapted to the big screens, your eyes can get tired when you focus on the game's texts in tablet mode.
If you are a big fan of Diablo and want to take Diablo 3 with you at any time, I recommend buying the Switch version of the game. In terms of content, the game cannot offer anything different but it can offer more enjoyable and fun experiences than other platforms in the co-op sense. Diablo 3, which is already easy to play, is now on the market as one of the best games that can be played as a co-op on Switch.
Blizzard said that they will make a new announcement about Diablo in the upcoming days at the Blizzcon event, we are going to see how many games of Blizzard will support Switch. The developer team who has adapted Starcraft to Nintendo 64 and Nintendo have friendship that goes back a long way. We hope that this friendship will be reflected to Nintendo Switch.
