Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Digital Foundry: Diablo III on Switch

Key points:

- 900p-756p in docked mode

- 720p-540p in portable mode

- For comparison, the original release was 584p on PS3 and 360, and the PS4/Xbone remaster was 1080p

- Mostly a flatline 60fps, runs much smoother than the last gen versions and without the tearing those versions suffered

- Ported by Iron Galaxy, who also did the Switch version of Skyrim

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

In between last gen & current gen like it should be.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

I've heard nothing but good things when it comes to this port. I just watched the whole video, and it seems like it sits comfortably between last gen and current gen. Better resolution and a more stable frame rate make this port a winner, imo! That $60 price tag is really holding me back from picking it up, though.



   

Who cares about Diablo III when Diablo Immortal is coming to mobile devices? I mean, we have phones, right? :P

Joking aside, it's great to see that the Switch version of Diablo 3 is running well. Would like to try it out sometime.

Just an FYI, this game includes the Reaper of Souls expansion which retailed for $40 when it launched, which was probably the main thing that 'saved' Diablo 3 and made it a viable and fun game. They took a very different direction at first. The Switch version also contains the Necromancer DLC, which otherwise costs $15.

I can understand the higher pricepoint when it's both a proper port and contains all the extra content.
Diablo can be pretty fun. Especially when playing with friends.

Yeah, I was aware of the additional content, I just didn't know their value. Thanks for letting me know! Honestly, I'll probably end up buying the game regardless of the price. The more I see of it, the more I want to play. Looks like a ton of fun!



   

This is actually big. Did not know about it.

Try and buy everything this game comes with and tell me the price.

I was tempted to try to get into Diablo 3 again not to long ago. I already own the base game and the prices of expansions still being what they were made me pass.

FYI

Prices on PC right now:

Base: $20.00
Exp 1: $20.00
Exp 2: $15.00

That is $55.00 to get what you get on the Switch for $60.00
