Midway's Hit Videogame SpyHunter in Development for Xbox Video Game System From Microsoft and Nintendo GameCube

Midway's 1980s Classic Redefined (January 22, 2002)
Midway Games Inc., a leading software industry publisher and developer, announced today that SpyHunter, the all-new update of Midway's popular 1980s action-racing game, is in development and scheduled to ship this spring for the Xbox video game system from Microsoft and Nintendo GameCube. SpyHunter shipped for the PlayStation2 computer entertainment system on Sept. 24, 2001.

"SpyHunter was hugely popular on the PlayStation 2 and we expect it will be just as big of a hit on the Xbox and Nintendo GameCube," said Helene Sheeler, vice president of marketing, Midway. "Using all of the original game elements, including villains, weapons vans and theme music -- combined with the power of these great new consoles -- SpyHunter creates an electrifying gaming experience."

With a next-generation 3D design, incredible high-tech weaponry and a sleek new vehicle (the G-6155 Interceptor) the SpyHunter player is on a mission to save the world and must make split-second decisions while engaging in offensive attacks and defensive counterattacks. The SpyHunter player can never relax while maneuvering through 14 high-adrenaline missions, which play out in a variety of exotic worldwide locations.

To add even more intensity to the relentless action, Island Gold Recording act Saliva has recorded two versions of "The SpyHunter Theme." Based on the Peter Gunn theme song, a new lyrical version as well as an instrumental format are included in the game.

The daring reconnaissance missions lead the SpyHunter player around the globe to exotic locations (Panama, Key West, England, Germany, France, the Middle East and Venice). Each location is modeled to a high degree of photo-realism and provides recognizable landmarks and scenery to offer compelling visual themes.
