Blizzard 'super happy' with how Diablo III: Eternal Collection turned out, says it's "not ridiculous' to assume more Nintendo collabs are coming


Many fans were surprised to see Nintendo and Blizzard team up for Diablo III: Eternal Collection, as Blizzard hadn't done anything for Nintendo platforms in years. In an interview with GamesBeat, Blizzard boss J. Allen Brack talks about how the collaboration went.

GamesBeat: Speaking to platforms, you released Diablo III on Switch not too long ago. I really enjoyed that version. What was it like to work with Nintendo on that? Are you happy with how that came out?

Brack: We’re super-happy. Nintendo’s been a great partner. We’re a fan of that platform, a fan of Nintendo, a fan of the Nintendo IP, a fan of the Switch. It’s a really good platform and it’s really fun to play on. Different games have come about that are good experiences. Part of it is Nintendo love, plus thinking that the Diablo experience would be great on that platform. I’m glad you enjoyed it. I loved it.

That's all well and good, but what about some other collaborations with Nintendo and Blizzard? Could they have more content on the way? Here's what Brack had to say on that front.

Brack: It’s not ridiculous. We’d like to have — we think of it as another platform. It has some unique properties that the Xbox and Sony platforms don’t have. Thinking about what games make sense for that type of console is something we’ll never stop doing.


How about StarCraft Ghosts on Switch. I know you've got the code lying around somewhere just waiting to explode onto switch.

I am curious how many units the Switch version sold
