When Diablo Was Almost Released On Game Boy.

Rumor has it that in the mid-late 90's Blizzard was working on a Game Boy port of the now-beloved franchise, Diablo.

They made it as far as getting some character movement and button presses down, and they even made a whole bunch of pretty pixel floor tiles... but that's about it. There is a rom floating around, but unfortunately it's more of a tech demo than an Alpha or Beta build. Here's a real short clip that pretty much shows you everything.

I'd be really curious to see how Diablo Game Boy would do if they finished it up and released it on the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console today. Nostalgia alone has sold plenty of games in the past.
