Diablo 3 Switch Makes an Unlikely Choice for its Amiibo

Diablo 3 Switch Makes an Unlikely Choice for its Amiibo

Diablo 3's first amiibo is the loot goblin?

Diablo 3 is coming out on the Switch in just a couple of days and Blizzard announced an official Diablo amiibo based on the Loot Goblin.

Blizzard announced the Loot Gobling amiibo on the Diablo Twitter account and how it will be released in December as a GameStop exclusive. According to reviews a menu pop-up in Diablot 3: Eternal Collection for the Switch had an option for amiibo support.

We got a chance to review Diablo 3 for Switch and called it "essential" writing, "Blizzard has spent several years perfecting Diablo 3's formula, building up the online season mode and putting in tons of little online hooks to keep you playing...This formula proves to be an especially good fit for the Switch, where it finds new life thanks to the platform's portability."

Diablo 3: Eternal Collection comes out on the Switch tomorrow on November 2, just in time for the first day of BlizzCon. Check out our Diablo 3 Class guide, or our guide for how to get the Ganondorf armor set in Diablo 3 for more info.
