We've known since PAX West that Diablo 3 on the Switch would be receiving Amiibo support, but that was all the information we were given. Today, however, rumors on Reddit gleaned from an allegedly datamined leaked version of the game claim that it will initially support three types of Amiibos:
- Default/Generic Amiibo
- Treasure Goblin Amiibo
- Demon Amiibo
The datamined leak also claims that the first two Amiibos will spawn a portal to a different location, with the last one summoning a powerful demon on the map. All three will also have their own cooldown timers: 22 hours for portals and 45 minutes for demons. It's also rumored that the Amiibos can be used in both online and offline modes.
Without any official information to determine if these rumors are true, we ask that you take this information with a grain of salt. However, since Blizzcon is just around the corner, it's highly likely that we will receive detailed information regarding Amiibo support then, so keep an eye out!
