Blizzard is celebrating its 30th this year, and to commemorate the milestone they’ve released the Blizzard Arcade Collection on Switch — and it’s available now.

The collection includes three of Blizzard’s console games from its past — Blackthorne, The Lost Vikings, and Rock N Roll Racing — and two versions of each game: Original Editions and Definitive Editions. The Originals are the games as players remember them but with some quality of life improvements thrown in, such as the ability to rewind gameplay, save and load games, and watch playthroughs of Blackthorne and The Lost Vikings and jump in to play at any point. The Definitives include all of the features of the Originals, but with new content including enhanced local multiplayer for The Lost Vikings and Rock N Roll Racing, a new level map for Blackthorne, and much more.

Additionally, this collection includes an in-game museum that allows players to enjoy various art and artifacts related to the games. View official art and marketing materials, listen to the original scores for Blackthorne and The Lost Vikings, look at behind-the-scenes and unused content from the games’ development, watch developer interviews, and dig through all of the extra content on these classic titles.

However, if you’re a Switch Overwatch and/or Diablo III player, you may be interested in the Blizzard 30-Year Celebration Collection, which includes Blizzard Arcade Collection and in-game content for Overwatch and Diablo III. StarCraft’s Jim Raynor has been turned into the Raynhardt Legendary skin for Reinhardt, and it comes with 5 Classic Loot Boxes, 3 Golden Loot Boxes (with a guaranteed Legendary), and a 30th anniversary icon and spray. Diablo III players will receive a Dark Wanderer guise consisting of Terror Unleashed Wings, The Dark Murglrrr Pet, Dark Wanderer Portrait, and The Wanderer’s Transmog Set.

Players that are only interested in the Blizzard Arcade Collection can download it for $19.99 from the eShop; those that would like the additional content for Overwatch and Diablo III and would like the Blizzard 30-Year Celebration can download it for $29.99.
