If you've been on the fence about the Blizzard Arcade Collection, now might be the perfect time to check it out.
It seems Blizzard has been listening to fan requests for a little more content and has now added two extra games to its digital retro package. Yes, that's right - on top of The Lost Vikings, Rock 'n Roll Racing and Blackthorne, there's now Lost Vikings 2 and RPM Racing. Here's a bit about both:
The sequel to The Lost Vikings, Lost Vikings 2 once again finds our three heroes Erik, Baleog, and Olaf taken far from their home and thrust into a new adventure. Tapping into new abilities and joined by two new allies, the werewolf Fang and the dragon Scorch, on their quest to find their way back home, our Viking heroes must overcome challenging puzzles that put a fresh spin on the original game’s design.
Not a sequel, but a prequel, RPM Racing is a time capsule preserving the seed that would eventually bloom into Rock N Roll Racing. The basics are all there: isometric perspective, different cars to choose from, the ability to make modular upgrades to your vehicle, career progress save functionality, and plenty of vehicular mayhem. Check out RPM Racing to get a look at one of the very first games produced by Blizzard.
Along with this, the new patch has added a fistful of new features and quality-of-life updates to "level up" the entire collection.
The Museum now includes a Design Documents gallery - revealing how the games were translated from concepts to finished products, and there's a new "Streamer Mode" for Rock N Roll Racing:
We’ve also added a new Streamer Mode for Rock N Roll Racing in the Definitive Edition and 4-player local multiplayer that lets you stream your gameplay with MIDI versions of the songs while still preserving the game’s rocking sound.
This latest update for the game is out now. If you don't already own it, you can read more about the game (in its launch state) in our review, or head on over to Nintendo's website or the Switch eShop to purchase your own copy for $19.99 / £16.99.
