Nintendo seems to be putting a lot of support behind the upcoming Diablo 3: Eternal Collection for the Nintendo Switch. It’s a port of a six year old game, but the way Nintendo is treating it, you wouldn’t know it. They have already, for instance, announced a special edition Switch bundle for the game—and it seems like there may be more goodies on the way, too.
Posting on the Diablo subreddit, Reddit user JustMaku talked about how a datamine of an early copy of the game seems to suggest that Diablo themed Amiibo may be on the way. Amiibo, for those of you who are out of the loop or have somehow forgotten, are Nintendo’s toys to life initiative that are cheap but well made figures unlocking bonus content in compatible games. While Amiibo are typically reserved for first party games, some third party titles, such as Shovel Knight and Dark Souls Remastered, have seen Amiibo releases too.
All of which is to say it’s not unlikely that something like this happens—though it does beg the question of why it wasn’t ready for the game’s launch, at least. Diablo 3: Eternal Collection launches for Nintendo Switch on November 2.
