Midway Delivers Dr.MutoCHICAGO - Nov. 11, 2002-- Midway Games Inc., a leading software industry publisher and developer, announced today that Dr. Muto(TM), an all-new fully 3-D action-adventure videogame, has shipped for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system and the Xbox(TM) video game system from Microsoft. Dr. Muto is expected to ship for the Nintendo GameCube(TM) in December and for the Game Boy® Advance in 2003. Redefining the image of the proverbial "mad scientist," players take on the role of Dr. Muto, a maniacal genius whose latest experiment accidentally destroyed his home planet, except for his laboratory. Now, the mad doctor must rebuild his decimated world by harvesting resources from other nearby planets, while dashing through a stylized universe -- encountering deadly challenges, freakish monstrosities, and battling his arch nemesis, the evil Professor Burnital. Gamers assume the role of Dr. Muto and forge through vast levels on four distinct planetscapes: from the junkyard world of Totltec, to the half-drowned water world of Aquem, through the smog-choked skies of Flotos, and finally the forbidden mines of Mazon. Armed with his newest invention -- the Splizz-gun -- Dr. Muto morphs himself into a variety of DNA spliced-up creatures including an alien-spider, miniature mouse and hulking gorilla. By morphing, Dr. Muto gains each creatures abilities and physical attributes -- such as clinging to webs, squeezing into tight spaces and breathing underwater -- all to better crush, outwit and outlast his enemies. "Once inside Dr. Mutos insane world, gamers will go mad morphing and mutating into various creatures in the quest for universal supremacy over Dr. Mutos arch nemesis," said Helene Sheeler, vice president of marketing, Midway.
