A Diablo 3 Switch bundle featuring a special edition console is coming next month

For those who are picking up a Switch alongside Diablo 3’s release on the console, a special Diablo 3 Switch bundle will be released on November 2.

Including the Switch itself, a download code for the game and all of the DLC content (so that’s both the Reaper of Souls expansion and the Necromancer class), and a special carrying case for the console itself, the bundle will be coming out the same day as Diablo 3 on the Switch.

The console and dock are both Diablo 3 themed, too, with art printed on the two, and the full game download includes the special Switch-only Ganondorf armour set too.

In the United States, the bundle will be exclusive to GameStop, according to Polygon, and will cost $359.99. That price is as expected, meaning you’re not saving money, but instead receiving the swish carry case and the special Switch version with the Diablo 3 art printed on.

That release date of November 2 should hopefully raise eyebrows too, as it’s conveniently the day BlizzCon 2018 will start. We know there are multiple Diablo projects being worked on, but crucially, the first panel at BlizzCon 2018 after the opening ceremony will be Diablo: What’s Next.

Considering the timing, and the fact that Diablo wasn’t seen at BlizzCon 2017, it’s highly likely that Diablo will make an appearance at BlizzCon 2018, to some degree. So, perhaps this bundle will be more than a little popular, if the big red demon is making a major appearance.
