Relive the Legacy: Announcing the Blizzard® Arcade Collection

Relive the Legacy: Announcing the Blizzard® Arcade Collection

In celebration of Blizzard’s 30th anniversary, we’ve recharged three console classics—with all the history, hard work, and love that went into making them—and added a few extras. Relive the legacy of The Lost Vikings®, Rock N Roll Racing®, and Blackthorne®, all faithfully reproduced on modern platforms, in the Blizzard Arcade Collection!

Fire up the time machine and start playing today on Battle.net PC (for Windows 10®), Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®4, and Xbox One (the collection also plays great on PlayStation®5 and Xbox Series X|S via backwards compatibility). 

UPDATE [4/13/2021]: Lost Vikings® 2 and RPM RacingTM are now also part of the Blizzard Arcade Collection.

The Blizzard Arcade Collection includes two original console releases for The Lost Vikings, Blackthorne, and Rock N Roll Racing, allowing you to experience these games as you remember them (plus a few modern features like saving and rewinding). 

It also contains new Definitive Editions of each game with additional upgrades like enhanced local multiplayer for The Lost Vikings and Rock N Roll Racing, new songs and artist performances for Rock N Roll Racing, a new level map for Blackthorne, localization for 12 languages, and more. 

Last but not least, we’ve added a library of artifacts from these games’ heyday, like digital manuals, interviews with developers past and present, and classic artwork.


The Lost Vikings, Rock N Roll Racing, and Blackthorne continue to inspire us, so we’ve gathered Blizzard developers past and present to discuss what they love about each game and share some behind-the-scenes stories.

We hope you enjoy playing these classics as much as we did working on them, then and now. It’s good to see old friends again.

Cheers,

The Blizzard Classic Team
