Ever want to battle the undead and demons? Want to fight off the power of Diablo? This game delivers that in a great story with some great multiplayer added in as well. Why get Diablo 3 on the Nintendo Switch? Sit back and relax as we dive into this game.
This game has you follow a story through Sanctuary. A mysterious star has fallen out of the sky and strikes a Cathedral and now the undead are appearing and threatening the worId - I won't go much more into the story, as I don't want to ruin it for you. However, I will say, the story is what really drives this game and what makes this game great - buy it for the story if nothing else.
This game is a top down action RPG. To me this was something new, as I have never played a top down RPG before this game. To my surprise, this game is very easy to get a hang of and plays very smoothly. Before you play you are tasked with choosing a class for your character such as barbarian, monk, demon hunter, crusader, necromancer, witch doctor, or wizard. Each class involves a certain way of playing and abilities which make the game different. When you get together with friends online or locally, having different characters can help balance your team.
Warning: This game is a little gory and probably not the best for younger children, this is up to the discretion of the parents though.
Diablo has you playing through towns and many dungeons in which you fight the undead and other demons. In these dungeons you have main tasks to complete and some side tasks as well. Along the way you will find items by opening chests or defeating enemies. The items can be anything from money, to swords or gloves, etc. Each item boosts certain aspects of your character. You can also craft certain items.
This game has great multiplayer options with online and local co-op play. Sit down with two joy-cons and both you and a friend can play in table top mode or TV mode. You can even have two Switches and play over the Wi-Fi together for a better experience. This also includes online play for the Nintendo Switch port of Diablo 3. The multiplayer is a great addition, especially the local co-op which makes this game great for couples.
This is a great port of Diablo 3 and it looks amazing on the Nintendo Switch. With a great story and a lot of content, this game will keep you entertained for hours. However, it can feel very tedious to level up at times, which is why I play it in bursts, not in one sitting. Where this game really shines is the local co-op so you can share the fun with someone else. This game is a little gory and probably not the best for younger children, although parents have the ultimate say. Overall this game is great to have for the story and is a great RPG to add to your Nintendo Switch collection.
