Download 'The Lost Vikings' For Free

May 5, 2014 - GamePolitics Staff

Blizzard has made its classic Super Nintendo adventure game, The Lost Vikings, available as a free download (thanks Joystiq). It was one of the first games the company made (which was published by Interplay, long before it was known for creating Warcraft, Starcraft, Diablo, and World of Warcraft. In the game players take control of three Vikings and alternate between them to use their special skills to solve environmental puzzles.

You can find out more about the game, and where to download it, by visiting Battle.net. You can also download the classic games Rock N' Roll Racing and Blackthorne!

So I guess it is now legal to download and own ROMs to these games, since they are now available for free. I did notice that Lost Vikings comes with ZSNES in order to play it. So I guess that likely answers my question.

Huh? I'm pretty sure Lost Vikings uses DosBox, there's a .conf file in there for it. RnRR uses ZSNES, though, and it's a shoddy romhack to remove content so it's technically not the SNES rom that Nintendo would flip out over.

Right you are. I downloaded RnRR and for some reason thought it was Lost Vikings.

That said though, would them giving away the PC (DOS) version of Lost Vikings be implicit permission to download the SNES ROM of Lost Vikings.

Sadly, I don't think it works that way. Even if it did they could claim it only legal to get it through them or authorized hosts.
