Blizzard working on Wii U games, including Diablo 3: rumor

Diablo 3 Wii UAll aboard the E3 hype train! According to latest pre-E3 rumors, Blizzard is working on two Wii U games, one of which is said to be Diablo 3. So far the game has only been released on the PC, but Blizzard is now rumored to be working on console versions, including a Diablo 3 Wii U version. The hush hush rumors, once again coming out of NeoGAF, say that it’s very possible the two games are ports of Diablo 3 and StarCraft 2 for the Wii U console. However, it’s said that the company could also be working on something entirely new, including a free-to-play MMO that would be downloaded via the Wii U eShop and supported by micro-transactions. The Blizzard Wii U game is said to be released by the end of 2012.

If Nintendo can manage to get a high-quality developer/publisher like Blizzard, it will be a huge victory for the new Wii U console. Not only in terms of getting quality games to the system, but it would also make the Wii U much more appealing to core and hardcore gamers, as Blizzard has an avid fan base. However, Blizzard is an exclusive PC game developer, where all of its major franchises — World of Warcraft, StarCraft 2, Diablo 3 — are exclusively on the PC platform. We’ll have to wait and see what happens at E3, this might be the big Wii U news Nintendo has been waiting to unveil.

    Well while Blizz only makes PC games now they made console games in the past, including on SNES.

  • Neonridr

    true, but those SNES games were nothing like the company that exists now. Would be a HUGE win to get a developer like Blizzard on the Wii U train! E3 can’t get here soon enough!

    I can see Diablo 3 working on WiiU, but not the other two consoles. The touch screen alone is what will make it possible. It’s a clicking game on PC, it would be a tapping game on WiiU.

    well , diablo 1 was on the ps1 , and dont forget starcraft 64, also a starcraft game was canceled for the gamecube.

  • Swic11

  • saria sage of the forest

    wow its been a while my internet my malfuctioning i had to get fixed but any way diablo 3 sounds intersting i saw the commerical a few times on tv it looks somewhat of a ps3 game due to its graphics and storyline but it would be great to have a game like that on the wii u but nintendo is going to have to do some configuration on its control’s

    • Neonridr

      ?? Diablo is a game controlled with a mouse where you point and click. If anything the controls would have to be modified for the 360 and PS3. It would be a perfect fit for Nintendo’s touch screen.

      • Skozo

        Exactly

      • Icanseeu

        You can use any type of mouse on a PS3……

  • A1424andy

    YOU BEAUTY!! Any chance we could see a D2:LoD port, bundled with D3?

    Wouldn’t take much as the original D2 source is RiSC right?
