Lost Vikings Appear In StarCraft 2

StarCraft II

If you've been playing through StarCraft 2's campaign mode as opposed to taking on real-life, head-to-head challengers online, you may have noticed an in-game arcade game called Lost Vikings in protagonist Jim Raynor's spaceship.  And if you're really down with the history of Blizzard, you know that The Lost Vikings was the name of the company's very first game.

SNES side-scrolling puzzle/action game The Lost Vikings came out in 1992, and in it you can see the seeds of future great Blizzard properties like Warcraft and World of Warcraft -- mainly, squatty guys with beards. See?

Sadly, Starcraft 2's Lost Vikings is not a direct port of the original game. Instead, it's a vertical scrolling space shooter arcade game. I get that the SNES The Lost Vikings wouldn't fit in with the sci-fi design in StarCraft 2, but still,  it would have been cool. Oh, well. The new Lost Vikings is pretty cool too. See?
