After months of rumors, it seems the Nintendo Switch port of Diablo III has finally been confirmed.

Diablo III is set to launch on the Nintendo Switch later this year, according to leaked information.

The Switch port of the blockbuster dungeon battler will reportedly launch in late 2018 for $60, and include the game's Reaper of Souls expansion and the DLC Rise of the Necromancer in a package publisher Blizzard is calling Diablo 3: The Eternal Collection.

Diablo III on the Switch will support local co-op for up to four players and can be played in the console's docked and portable configurations.

Overall, Diablo 3 coming to the Switch isn't that big of a surprise. The news prematurely surfaced ahead of Blizzard's official announcement scheduled for tomorrow, dropping all the details before being deleted.

Forbes also detailed that Diablo III on Nintendo Switch will be playable by up to four players on the same Switch unit, while four players can also play together locally (without an internet connection) on four different Switch systems. According to images in the initial article, one of those will include a new Ganondorf-themed character skin, while additional cosmetics detailed include a Cucoo pet, Echoes of the Mask wings, and a Triforce portrait banner/flag.

As for the other "Diablo" projects Blizzard teased, we'll likely hear more about those during BlizzCon 2018, which takes place November 2-3 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, Calif.

(We look forward to finding out whether this chicken can be slashed by players and thus get them swarmed by a violent Cucco horde.) Forbes' article did not clarify whether these items will immediately unlock when Switch players start a new quest or if they'll have to be earned via quests or other activities.
