Game Informer recently talked to some folks at Blizzard about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Diablo 3 was recently announced for the Switch, but this interview took around the time that the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct took place. So, Game Informer asked Blizzard what guest character they’d want to be playable in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
Pete Stilwell, Blizzard’s senior producer, said that “personally, yeah, I’d love to have Diablo. That to me is the immediate one. Then if we had over time, eventually the heroes, go through all of them…or you could go really awesome and only have Deckard Cain.” Joshua Wittge, Blizzard’s PR manager, replied by saying that “he could just whack them with the cane or put them to sleep”. Stilwell suggested another possible move, where Diablo “puts them to sleep and just slowly drags them to the edge and drops them off. Like really sinister Deckard Cain”.
