Blizzard confirms Jedi Mickey playable in Diablo III

Posted on Sunday, April 1st 2012 at 1:59 p.m.

In what one would believe to be a trademark nightmare, Blizzard has done the unthinkable.  They partnered with LucasArts and Disney to bring everyone’s favorite classic cartoon character to the world of fire and brimstone to take on the creatures of hell.  Jedi Mickey is coming to Diablo III!

Blizzard’s PR rep had this to say about this strange pair-up:

We were in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, waiting in line for Star Tours and it hit us.  Who better to vanquish Diablo than lovable Mickey Mouse, the hero of those classic SEGA Genesis games.  But wait, let’s make it even better and give him a lightsaber so he stands a chance against Diablo’s minions on Hell difficulty.  We’d like to thank Disney and LucasArts for the chance to work with these two iconic franchises.”

Jedi Mickey will have upgradable force powers and will also have the ability to summon his pal Pluto to join the fight.  Jedi Mickey will be a special DLC add-on for Diablo III and will cost $10.  Princess Leia Minnie is unconfirmed as of this writing…
