Diablo II Remaster Can Import Original Diablo II Saves

IGN Middle-East reports that the Diablo II Remaster will actually support the import of saved games from the original version of Blizzard's action/RPG (thanks GamesRadar+). Please excuse me while I look for a ribbon cable to sort through some old hard drives. Here's word:
Can we import original save files into Diablo 2: Resurrected?

Matthew: Yes! Yes, keep those!

[Everyone rejoices!]

Matthew: Back when we were working on [the remaster], we wondered if the old save files would work and we kind of shoved it in and it worked! And we were like, ‘okay, that’s the best feature ever’.
