Midway ships Arcade Treasures 2

Mortal Kombat II and Mortal Kombat 3, NARC, and 17 other classic arcade titles are featured in the $19.99 compilation.

Longing for the simpler days of yesteryear? Then you'll be pleased to know that Midway Arcade Treasures 2 has shipped to retail. For the price of a four-hour session in a coin-op arcade, PS2, Xbox, and GameCube owners can play 20 Midway titles from the golden years of quarter-draining arcades. This time around, "neo-classics" like Mortal Kombat II, Mortal Kombat 3, NARC, and Primal Rage share the spotlight with oldies like Wizard of Wor and Xenophobe.

(Originally slated to appear in the collection, the original Mortal Kombat was taken off the disc and included with deluxe editions of Mortal Kombat: Deception, which released for the PS2 and Xbox last week.)

Bonus content on the DVD includes making-of videos that feature interviews with the developers of several of the included titles, as well as trailers and video montages. The Xbox version of the title features Xbox Live high-score leaderboards.

Last year's Midway Arcade Treasures included 20 earlier Midway titles such as Gauntlet, Rampage, Joust, and Paperboy. It will be rereleased with new packaging that reflects the design of the sequel, as well as the new title of "Midway Arcade Treasures 1," this month.

Rated "M" for Mature (due to "graphic" pixelated violence in included titles like Mortal Kombat II and Pit Fighter), Midway Arcade Treasures 2 carries an SRP of $19.99. GameSpot's review of the title will be posted later today.
