Blizzard has announced the Diablo 3 Nintendo Switch Amiibo a day prior to BlizzCon 2018. The official Diablo Twitter account tweeted details regarding a Loot Goblin Amiibo for Diablo 3: Eternal Collection for the Nintendo Switch. In the US it will be exclusive to GameStop. The Diablo 3 Loot Goblin Amiibo price is $15.99 (around Rs. 1,160) and has a December 2018 release date. With this Amiibo you’ll be able to summon your own portals to obtain treasure in Diablo 3. This is in line with the Diablo 3 Loot Goblin Amiibo leak from earlier in the week. With this being announced just before BlizzCon, it makes us wonder what to expect from the Diablo series at the event considering Blizzard has said Diablo 4 won’t be on the cards.
Diablo 4 or whatever Blizzard plans to call its successor to Diablo 3 won’t be at BlizzCon 2018. The action role-playing series makes its Nintendo Switch debut next month in the form of the Diablo 3: Eternal Collection and there’s a Netflix series that’s reportedly in the works as well. However if you were expecting a brand new Diablo game, you may want to temper your expectations. Though the company claims that there are “multiple teams working on different Diablo projects and we can’t wait to tell you all about them … when the time is right.”
“We know what many of you are hoping for and we can only say that ‘good things come to those who wait,’but evil things often take longer,” a prepared statement from Blizzard reads. “We appreciate your patience as our teams work tirelessly to create nightmarish experiences worthy of the Lord of Terror. While we won’t be ready to announce all of our projects, we do intend to share some Diablo-related news with you at the show.”
