Diablo 3 is coming to the Nintendo Switch, making it the first Blizzard game to hit a Nintendo console since StarCraft came to the Nintendo 64 in 2000.

After teasing some Diablo-related news earlier this month, Blizzard revealed that it’s bringing Diablo 3 to the Nintendo Switch this fall, which means you’ll finally be able to take on the Lord of Terror himself while on-the-go. And like all good Nintendo Switch ports, there are some cool Nintendo exclusive goodies to enjoy.

Specifically, you get to play as Ganondorf.

The Nintendo Switch version of Diablo 3 comes with all of the content that has released since Diablo 3 first launched in 2012, including the Reaper of Souls expansion and Rise of the Necromancer pack. In addition, Nintendo Switch players get some Legend of Zelda-themed bonuses, including a Ganondorf armor set and transmogrification, a pair of wings inspired by Majora’s Mask, a Tri-Force portrait frame, and a cucco pet.

The hack-and-slash dungeon crawler has all the features you’d expect on the Switch including online and local co-op (up to four players on a single console).

Diablo 3 on Nintendo Switch works with multiple controller setups, including a single Joy-Con. But the most likely setup for players — both Joy-Cons or a pro controller — will manifest like this:

We don’t have a specific release date for Diablo 3 on the Nintendo Switch yet but with an expected release window of this fall, we’ll probably hear something very soon. The game will cost $60.
