A Diablo III: Eternal Collection Nintendo Switch bundle has been announced for November 2nd, which comes with a console bearing the symbol of Diablo.
Nintendo is preparing a bunch of new Switch bundles for the 2018 holiday season, which includes a Fortnite bundle that comes with exclusive digital content and a Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu & Let's Go Eevee bundle that comes with a special dock, a brown & yellow Joy-Con set, and a Poké Ball controller.
A Diablo III: Eternal Collection Nintendo Switch bundle has been announced for November 2nd, which comes with a Nintendo Switch console that bears the symbol of Diablo on its back, a set of grey Joy-Cons, a dock that has an image of Diablo and Malthael on the side, a Diablo III carrying case, and a download code for the Diablo III: Eternal Collection game.
The Nintendo of America Twitter account has since confirmed that this bundle will be exclusive to Gamestop and will retail for $359.99.

The Diablo III: Eternal Collection bundle is a step up from the upcoming Fortnite bundle, in that it offers a unique looking console and dock. The Fortnite bundle only gives you a couple of in-game items, as neither Nintendo nor Epic Games could be bothered designing any custom Fortnite designs for the Switch console or dock.
The only real benefit of the Fortnite bundle is that it's cheaper than the other upcoming bundles, due to the fact that the system doesn't come with any games, as Fortnite is free.
The Nintendo Switch port of Diablo III: Eternal Collection also comes with a few exclusive items from The Legend of Zelda series, including a Triforce portrait frame, a Cucco companion pet, and the ability to look like Ganondorf from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
The carrying case is an especially important accessory for Nintendo Switch owners who use their console as a portable system, in order to protect the screen from damage. The Nintendo DS & 3DS managed to avoid any screen issues due to their clamshell design, but the Switch has no protection for the screen on its own.
The Diablo III: Eternal Collection Nintendo Switch bundle will be available at Gamestop on November 2nd.
