The biggest feature is the ability to play as famed Legend of Zelda villain Ganondorf as the Barbarian and Crusader classes.

Today marks the official reveal of Diablo III for the Switch.

"Without going beyond [the Diablo port], I think it was a good exploration into the platform and into the relationship with Nintendo that has been extremely positive, extremely healthy and forward-thinking".

The game can be played using a Joy-Con controller or a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller and enjoy "ultra-responsive controls custom-built for Nintendo Switch". We'll have full hands-on impressions for you this coming Monday, so be sure to check back for a deep-dive into how Diablo 3 handles on Switch.

"Where the game was at launch compared to where it is now, it's light years forward".
