Diablo III Datamine On Nintendo Switch Reveals Potential Amiibo Announcement

Diablo III

Diablo III is almost ready to launch on the Nintendo Switch and according to a new leak, the latest port will utilize the Big N’s Amiibo technology with its own line of usable figurines.

A recent post on Reddit has revealed new information found through dataming that indicates players on the Nintendo Switch version of the game will be able to use not one, but three different Amiibo figures that can be used in both offline and online modes:

  • Default/ Generic Amiibo
  • Treasure Goblin Amiibo
  • Demon Amiibo

The first two figures will allow players to teleport to different locations within the game though unfortunately, specific details on where exactly couldn’t be datamined. The Demon Amiibo on the other hand will allow players to spawn a powerful Demon on the map. Again there isn’t much more information on this feature, though perrhaps it will summon a specific Minion of Darkness or maybe even summon one from a pool of the various demons within the game.

In order to prevent players from abusing the feature, there is a cooldown restriction placed between uses of each figurine. The Portals have a cooldown of 22 hours while it will only be a 45 minute wait in between uses for the Demon.

The Nintendo Switch port is available for pre-order now and is set to go live on November 2nd. Are you prepared to make a return to Sanctuary and fight against evil?
