Today at Blizzcon 2013, Blizzard said that their action RTS Heroes of the Storm would have heroes and villains extending through the company’s entire back catalog. And Blizzard revealed that they're willing to reach back pretty far; one of the older properties they might be using is The Lost Vikings.

Blizzard game designer Dustin Browder said in an interview with GameSpot, “There’s a good chance for Lost Vikings. That’s one of the characters we’ve been really interested in doing. It’s a way we can do three characters and you’re controlling them and swapping back and forth. I think we’ve got some ideas that we might be able to make work, but we’re going to have to test it first to really see.”

The Lost Vikings starred in a series of side-scrolling puzzle/platforming games from the ‘90s across a variety of platforms, including SNES, PlayStation, Amiga, and Sega Mega Drive.
