The Blizzard Arcade Collection is growing! Blizzard Entertainment announced today on its blog that the arcade collection was getting more than some quality-of-life updates. Growing from three to five, Lost Vikings 2 and RPM Racing are now available to play.

From the blog post:

 

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.

 

The quality-of-life updates that Blizzard mentioned include a Design Documents gallery (in the Museum) and a Streamer Mode for Rock N Roll Racing (in the Definitive Edition) plus a “4-player local multiplayer that lets you stream your gameplay with MIDI versions of the songs while still preserving the game’s rocking sound.”

You can get Blizzard Arcade Collection on the Nintendo eShop for $19.99 today.
