Fans and websites everywhere have taken this as early confirmation that epic dungeon-crawler Diablo III is skulking its way to Nintendo's hybrid-console, giving that the light in the video is "switched" on and off.

"We can assure you we're not that clever", a spokesperson for Blizzard Entertainment said via email.

Blizzard's tease shows a short video of a Diablo 3 nightlight being "switched" off, which might very well be a confirmation that a Diablo 3 Switch version is in the pipeline. "[It was] meant to be a fun community engagement piece".

Fans have long hoped for ports from the original Diablo and its two sequels , but Blizzard has been pretty quiet on that topic.

"New hardware such as the Switch have driven retail sales, virtual reality hardware looks healthy and digital games across all platforms continue to grow", UKie chief executive Dr Jo Twist said. "We have nothing to announce".

In a late night post, the studio tweeted out a gif of a Diablo themed night light being "switched" on and off.

We're still waiting on that Hearthstone port, Blizzard. Naturally, followers on social media thought that was supposed to indicate that Diablo was being released to the Switch. But the fact it is being teased suggests an announcement and launch date can't be too far off. If the game came to the Switch, we'd start back over.

Diablo III originally launched on PC and Mac in May 2012, then on PS3 and Xbox 360 in September 2013, and most recently on PS4 and Xbox One in August 2014.
