VentureBeat did an interview with Blizzard Entertainment president J. Allen Brack at a Blizzard event at Irvine, California last week. The interview was posted today, which included some interesting remarks about Nintendo. Brack was asked what it was like for them to work with Nintendo for the Switch version of Diablo III, as well as how it came out. Brack said that “we’re super-happy. Nintendo’s been a great partner. We’re a fan of that platform, a fan of Nintendo, a fan of the Nintendo IP, a fan of the Switch. It’s a really good platform and it’s really fun to play on. Different games have come about that are good experiences. Part of it is Nintendo love, plus thinking that the Diablo experience would be great on that platform. I’m glad you enjoyed it. I loved it”.
As for future collaborations, VentureBeat asked if it was ridiculous to assume that more Nintendo collaborations may be coming. Brack said that “it’s not ridiculous. We’d like to have — we think of it as another platform. It has some unique properties that the Xbox and Sony platforms don’t have. Thinking about what games make sense for that type of console is something we’ll never stop doing”.
