Midway Arcade Treasures Announced
Midway unveiled a new retro compilation today, titled Midway Arcade Treasures. Due this fall, this DVD will contain more than 20 familiar arcade games from the 1980s and 1990s. The list of games includes Spy Hunter, Gauntlet, Joust, Paperboy, Marble Madness, Robotron 2084, Smash TV, Rampart, Sinistar, Satan's Hollow, Klax, and Vindicators, to name only a few.
In addition to the games, Midway plans on adding interviews with the brains behind these coin-ops. There's been no official word on whether Digital Eclipse will return to port these games to thr next-gen systems or whether Midway will go somewhere else. PSone owners will likely remember that Digital Eclipse handled the conversions for Midway's retro collections on that console, including the Arcade's Greatest Hits series and Arcade Party Pak.
This looks to be one of the largest retro collections of its kind, eclipsed only by Activision Anthology. If what's old can be new again, perhaps we'll see the return of Jams and Hypercolor T-shirts... stay tuned for more info on Midway's latest foray into retro-land as it becomes available.
