Blizzardâ€™s official Twitter account sent out a tweet seemingly teasing that Diablo 3 is indeed coming to the Nintendo Switch; that, or, we are in store for a pretty sweet Diablo night light. Check out the tweet in question, below.

Itâ€™s easy to draw the connection to this being a port, especially since the short clip clearly emphasizes the switching on factor of the night light. If this is a Switch port of Diablo 3, it is a huge get for Nintendoâ€™s console/handheld hybrid. After some heavy hitters that came early in the consoles lifecycle, support seems to be waning just a tad and the big â€œwhatâ€™s nextâ€ has become the question on everyoneâ€™s mind. Diablo 3 is a big answer to that question, should us (and pretty much the internet gaming industry and fans) be correct that this is a tease for Diablo 3.
Blizzard is in such a position to pull this off since fans would be more than willing to buy Diablo 3 again, probably for a second or third time. Who could say no to some potential portable dungeon crawling after all? All potential issues with how the title would work on a controller quickly faded with the overwhelmingly successful console ports, so the only issue would be how the title would scale down to the Switchâ€™s hardware. Again, if anyone could make this work, Blizzard are the ones to do it. Blizzard is one of the very few that could spark so much interest from a six year old port, but the fever for a portable Diablo is indeed real.Â
But still, we wouldnâ€™t say no to a night light. For that matter, let’s include all of Blizzard’s properties in the night light train. I could never say no to a Tracer night light.Â
Update: Polygon reached out to Blizzard Entertainment and a spokesperson responded with: â€œWe can assure you weâ€™re not that clever,â€ a spokesperson for Blizzard Entertainment said via email. â€œ[It was] meant to be a fun community engagement piece. We have nothing to announce.â€ Source: Polygon
