Reddit user JustMaku got his/her hands-on the Eternal Collection before its launch and has managed to mine the game for its data. Maku has taken the data that has been collected to the Diablo subreddit, Maku then posted on the subbreddit claiming that the Diablo III: Eternal Collection will have Amiibo support in the form of three separate types of Amiibo's.

According to the Reddit post, the Diablo III: Eternal Collection will support the "Default/Generic Amiibo", "Treasure Goblin Amiibo" and a "Demon Amiibo." Maku further explains what each of these Amiibo's will do, "The first two will spawn a portal leading to some location (controlled by server so can't be datamined) while the demon amiibo will spawn a powerful demon on the map. To prevent abuse, there's currently a cooldown on each type of the summon." The Diablo III: Eternal Collection will be launching on November 2nd, for more information visit the official listing on the Nintendo eShop here.

Maku says that amiibos can be used in both local mode and online, and that there will be a cooldown of:

  • 22 hours (1320 minutes) for portals
  • 45 minutes for demons.
