Diablo 4 Mini Pets May Happen

Will they add them? Should they add them?

Diablo 3 mini pet. Please no!

Now, I am not a huge fan of mini pets and I was hoping they won’t appear in Diablo 4 but according to Rod Fergusson, is sounds like like they are open to most things.

In an interview with TechRadar, Rod was asked whether the mini pets would make an appearance and his response was, “We’re a never say never team.”

As we know, mini pets are not in Diablo 4 now but they were a feature of Diablo 3 and I am sure plenty of players enjoyed the feature. Rob elaborated further.

 “When we started out, we really wanted to establish ourselves in a very authentic way, a very grounded way. So we looked at, ‘Oh hey, what’s really popular in Diablo 3? mini pets and giant wings, and all these things.

We get the desire [for mini pets] and we had fun with those as well. We like mini pets, we like to make all that stuff as well. But we wanted to make sure that Diablo 4 as sort of the reemergence – the tentpole version of our franchise – was coming in in an authentic, grounded way that we could build from there. That’s not saying we’ll never do it, but it felt too early in season one.”

So yeah, it sounds like mini pets will turn up at some point. If Blizzard is selling $70 horse armor, you can bet they are going to sell mini pets.

I seriously hope they don’t take Diablo 4 down the sparkle pony rainbow route with weird pets and whatever else they think they can punt to players. Keep it dark, keep it moody, and stick to the core of what Diablo is.

Should they add pets? Let us know in the comments.
