https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2021-01-23-vicarious-visions-reportedly-working-on-a-diablo-2-remake-at-blizzard Sounds very much like this is going to be a thing. I am always up for more Diablo and the second game is a true classic. It sounds like the Diablo 4 team were involved initially in the article (which from what we've seen has more of a 2 vibe about it aesthetically). The Warcraft 3 remaster wasn't well received though so Activision/Blizzard don't have great form in this area meaning some caution is advised in the excitement stakes. As for the developer they were responsible for the recent Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy and the well received Tony Hawks 1+2 remasters (I am only quoting the article here!) so reasons to be optimistic there. I hope it's a full 3d remake rather than some kind of upscale/retouching of sprites and backgrounds. I'd be happy for them to leave all the underlying systems alone but won't be automatically reaching for a pitchfork if its been (shudder) "modernised".
Big rumour from direct feed games that the title might be coming true. This would mean you would be able to stream Xbox games onto a switch, although you would need a gamepass account obviously. If true then this is pretty huge news. MS and Nintendo in bed together in a big way. Also very good business for both of them. The source is reliable by the way.
