Update: Click here for an explanation of the riddle and why it is Diablo 3.Update 2: Mr Purple ExplainedUpdate 3: Wednesday Splash Image
Blizzard has updated the splash screen with a new ice image
, to me it looks like something is behind the ice getting brighter ready to burst through. A new hidden image has also been revealed and it's called 15.jpg
! According to the theory
15 equals O, then we have D _ _ _ _ O, it must be Diablo 3! Just that they're revealed in a different order, perhaps in response to the quick cracking of the riddle.
It's a different size than the last, I've tried stitching them together:
If Mr Purple is in portrait the letters would not be in order, however the shade seem to fit better that way. Click here to view as portrait
Another confirmation is the new rune in the splash screen, it looks a lot like the Diablo rune Hel
The fact that Blizzard is calling the image 15.jpg is confirmation enough imo, maybe they won't be ordered DIABLO, but that doesn't really matter. It's also important to note that the completed image of Mr Purple might very well be of a purple walrus
with no relation to D3 at all, the significant part is the naming of the images. The countdown
is still on!
