    Midway Arcade Treasures: Deluxe Edition Announced

    It appears that no platform is safe from the revival of Midway's vast library of classic arcade games, as Midway Arcade Treasures: Deluxe Edition for the PC was announced today. This 4-disc set includes a compilation of all 28 games from Midway Arcade Treasures 2 and Midway Arcade Treasures 3, which the former contained Mortal Kombat II and Mortal Kombat 3, previously released on Xbox, PlayStation 2 and Nintendo GameCube.
    This collection includes a wide-array of arcade games that range from fighting to racing. For the first time ever on PC, gamers will hear the famous cries of "Fight" and "Finish Him" in both Mortal Kombat II and Mortal Kombat 3. Friends will be left behind in a cloud of dust in Super Off Road. Racing skills from Rush the Rock: Alcatraz Edition and Race Drivin' can be used to out-drive and out-wit the bad guys in A.P.B.. Arcade-perfect PC versions of such classics as Wizard of Wor, Gauntlet II, Pit Fighter, Arch Rivals, Rampage World Tour, San Francisco Rush: 2049, Hydro Thunder and more are included in Midway Arcade Treasures: Deluxe Edition.


    Midway Arcade Treasures: Deluxe Edition will be released later in September at a suggested price of $19.99. No word on network multiplayer support options.

    Update: Midway sends word that the game is standalone multiplayer. (i.e. no network options)

    I would be interested in this release if the graphical glitches (flickering shadows) and sound issues have been fixed. If it weren't for two thing I'd be playing MKII and MK3 on my Xbox all day long (perhaps more than Halo 2.)

    I already have perfect Arcade ports on the PC.. A few years ago, they came out with a package called MKDuo, this disk had excellent ports or MK1 and MK2. I also still have the MK3 for the PC, I didn't like it as well.

    While the Duo was good, it's not Arcade perfect. Pretty close for DOS VESA graphics. It's a pretty noticable difference.

    Pretty sure we can expect another cut and paste emulation job here, which means we can expect some more annoying glitches strwed about. Disappointed to hear that multiplayer is out of the question.
