Sprint, which operates the largest all-digital, all-PCS nationwide wireless network, and Midway Games announced that Midway plans to take some of its most popular games mobile as it develops wireless games for Sprint's Third-Generation (3G) PCS Phones. These 3G games will include versions of popular titles such as Defender, Kick Champion and Mahki that will be developed using the Java 2 Platform, Micro Edition (J2ME).

For Sprint customers, 3G1X services are planned to launch nationwide this summer. After the launch, Sprint expects faster wireless data speeds and enhancements for existing applications and services when using a 3G enabled device. It also establishes a platform for later releases of new and more robust applications as data speeds increase including enhanced games, video and audio clips, enhanced messaging, email with attachments, high-speed Internet browsing and digital imaging. Specifically for games, 3G enables Sprint to move the game experience from the text-based games of today to graphic, full-color brand name games on 3G-enabled PCS Phones using the J2ME platform. I wonder if Mortal Kombat is in the near future as well?
