It looks like Diablo is coming to Nintendo Switch

UPDATE: Blizzard says no, tweet "meant to be a fun engagement piece".

UPDATE: Blizzard has issued a statement addressing its tweet that heavily suggested Diablo was coming to Switch.

"We cannot confirm this rumour," a Blizzard spokesperson told Eurogamer. "As of now, we do not have any current plans to announce Diablo for Switch.

"This tweet was meant to be a fun engagement piece. We do not have any plans to announce Diablo for Switch."

"We do not have any plans to announce Diablo for Switch," sounds pretty clear cut, doesn't it? But then, the tweet, below, looks pretty clear cut, too.

Hmm....

ORIGINAL STORY: It sure looks like Blizzard's action role-playing game Diablo is coming to Nintendo Switch.

Blizzard tweeted a video of someone turning a little Diablo light on and off. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to get the tease.

The expectation is Nintendo Switch will get a port of the wonderful Diablo 3 and its expansions. If you're wondering why Diablo 3 is awesome - and why it works beautifully on console - check out Christian Donlan's review of Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition. Being able to take Diablo 3 out and about with you on Switch sounds pretty cool, too.

So, if Blizzard's making Diablo for Switch, will it port other games to Nintendo's console? Fingers crossed for Hearthstone.
