Many big blockbusters from the last few years are getting Switch ports, but not all of them are getting their own Switch bundles. November 2 sees the release of Diablo 3 on Switch, as well as the Diablo III: Eternal Collection Switch bundle. The bundle will be available exclusively at GameStop.
The Diablo III: Eternal Collection Switch bundle includes a download code for the game as well as Diablo-themed Switch, dock, and carrying case. Diablo III: Eternal Collection on Switch includes Diablo 3 as well as the Reaper of Souls and Rise of the Necromancer expansion packs for a total of seven character classes, five acts, and seasonal content.
Unique to the Switch version are several pieces of Zelda-related content: a Cucco pet, Triforce portrait, and a transmogrification armor set to don Gannondorf’s black steel armor.
Diablo 3 originally launched on PC in 2012, making the jump to current gen consoles in 2014. Despite a history of PC-only gameplay, the console version was very well received. The Reaper of Souls expansion also helped redefine the gameplay structure as Blizzard added the excellent Adventure Mode and seasonal content to increase replayability over the years.
Diablo 3 remains one of the go-to definitive cooperative games on the market, with both local and online multiplayer. Local players can join forces on a shared-screen with a single Switch, or with multiple Switch handhelds. Up to four people can battle the evil forces in Sanctuary together.
The Diablo III: Eternal Collection will launch on Nov. 2 along with the Switch bundle. It’s rated M for Mature for Blood and Gore, Partial Nudity, and Violence.
In a new trailer Kingdom Hearts 3 showed off the latest Disney franchise included in the unique Disney-RPG crossover: Big Hero 6. On their journey Sora, Donald and Goofy will join…
Moonlighter launched earlier this year on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, and now it’s finally coming to Switch. 11 bit Studios has announced that Moonlighter will release on Switch this November. A specific date has not yet been announced.
Moonlighter is an action-RPG that combines the dungeon-crawling of old-school Zelda games with running a merchant shop with all the loot you acquire. You play as Will, a shopkeeper with heroic tendencies as you explore the mysterious dungeons outside of town.
The game also uses a rogue-like system. It’s not game over if you die but you drop most of your hard-earned loot, and dungeons are randomly generated each time you go inside. For a price you can teleport back and forth between the dungeon and the town. Each dungeon has an end boss that unlocks the next harder dungeon.
At the shop you can set your own prices for each piece of loot you find. The ideal sell price is mostly trial and error, with some light economy management. Also in town Will can use materials and gold to upgrade his weapons and armor and purchase potions.
Moonlighter is developed by Digital Sun and published by 11 bit Studios. It’s available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, and coming to Switch in November. It’s rated E10+ for Fantasy Violence.
