Spy Hunter Explodes onto Xbox

High-Adrenaline Missions and Relentless Action Redefine Spy Hunter to Create Electrifying Gaming Experience for Next-Generation Systems

CHICAGO- March 11, 2002-- Midway Games Inc., a leading software industry publisher and developer, announced today that SpyHunter®, the all-new remake of Midway’s popular 1980’s action-racing game, will ship tomorrow for the Nintendo GameCube(TM) and the Xbox(TM) video game system from Microsoft. SpyHunter is scheduled to ship for the Game Boy® Advance in June and is available now for the PlayStation® 2 computer entertainment system.

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. The ultimate counterintelligence prototype vehicle with morphing abilities, the G-6155 Interceptor has offensive and defensive weapons including 25mm cannon machine guns and heat-seeking missiles. The G-6155 Interceptor morphs on-the-fly into a deadly high-velocity speedboat, a turbo jet watercraft or a supercharged motorcycle with a turbine engine (horsepower classified), which helps players escape and evade the relentless onslaught of enemy fire. Additionally, as an added in-game bonus, Xbox owners will receive the original 1983 arcade classic, Spy Hunter®, in its entirety, included as an exclusive hidden feature.

"Now Nintendo GameCube and Xbox owners can experience the addictive SpyHunter gameplay," said Helene Sheeler, vice president of marketing, Midway. "SpyHunter was an enormous success on the PlayStation®2 and we expect it to be a top videogame on the Nintendo GameCube and Xbox as well."

The SpyHunter player can never relax while maneuvering through 14 high-adrenaline missions around the globe to exotic locations such as 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.

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.
