Following the rumours from earlier this week, Blizzard Entertainment has now confirmed the existence of the Loot Goblin amiibo - arriving at some point this December. The exclusive amiibo for Diablo III: Eternal Collection will allow Switch players to summon a portal and gain access to "untold riches" according to the official description. The announcement was delivered via the company's official Twitter account:

Arguably, it's the most unique-looking third-party amiibo yet - featuring a red base and a design that does not perfectly match the original creature in the game. Noticeably, the packaging for the amiibo is also different. Many Blizzard fans have pointed out the figurine is a recoloured version of an existing Treasure Goblin toy from the Cute But Deadly series. If any other Diablo-themed amiibo are revealed, it'll likely be at BlizzCon's main event starting on 2nd November and finishing on 3rd November.
