So this is an interesting turn of events! Several days ago, the official Blizzard Entertainment twitter account tweeted a particular tweet that caught the attention of many. The tweet simply said “sweet dreams” and featured a picture of an awesome nightlight modeled after Diablo’s face.
Nightlight? What’s another name for a light fixture on the wall? Oh right – a SWITCH! Because of the cryptic nature of the tweet, the gaming community is reading into this as a teaser that Diablo III will be heading to the Nintendo Switch.
This is pretty big news for several reasons, the main being that if this ends up true, this will be the first Blizzard game on a Nintendo console since, what, Starcraft 64? That game came out in 2000! That’s an eighteen year gap, and this is a reunion worth celebrating.
Diablo III already saw a console release on the PS4 and XB1, so this isn’t too far-fetched of an assumption. Plus, we can already tell you that the game is going to perform very well. A portable Diablo experience? For many fans of the series that’s a dream come true, as Diablo III is the perfect game suited for short-burst playtimes. That’s exactly what the Switch is made for!
And, who knows, this could be the start of something great. Every company is starting to notice how well the Switch is doing, and now that Blizzard could potentially be one of those companies, we might see their other games as well. Overwatch on the Switch, anyone? That might be bit of a stretch, but that’d probably sell a ton too.
Blizzard hasn’t said anything else about the mysterious tweet as they’re still busy with the Warcraft III invitational and the announcement of Brigitte, the new Overwatch hero. But we’re waiting to see if this really happens. We’re excited to find out!
