This is like a magical dream of mine come to fruition. I’m a lover of classic arcade gaming and since the demise of Midway, I’ve longed for somebody to put out a new Midway collection and Warner Bros. Interactive is stepping up to the plate with Midway Arcade Origins launching this November for the Xbox 360 and PS3! Specific date to be determined, I guess…
Anyways, the game is being developed by Backbone Entertainment and you can expect your usual Midway favorites like Rampage, Gauntlet, Joust, Spy Hunter, Marble Madness, and Defender along with a bunch more for a package of over 30 classic Midway arcade hits along with new features like leaderboards and achievements/trophies! Sadly, there is no online multiplayer and no full game list YET, but I’m sure more details will be revealed soon. The best part of the package is easily the budget pricing of only $30!
I know more details are needed before we can tell for sure if this is going to be a winner or not, but I have high hopes that this will sit proudly on my shelf next to the Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection and Namco Museum Virtual Arcade compilations! Check out the announcement trailer after the jump!
