Diablo Junior was an intended prequel to Diablo,[1] (or port of Diablo II, depending on source)[2] to be created by Blizzard North. It was to be distributed on the Gameboy Color or Gameboy Advance, and have a cartridge system similar to the Pokémon games, where different versions of the game would be released, with each version having a different character class and support for cross-system item trading.[1] Heroes started in a unique town before moving into dungeons and wilderness areas.[3]

The game was ultimately scrapped due to production costs.[1]
