Midway Games

Sal DiVita has worked for Midway since the early 1990's on various projects performing multiple jobs including motion capture, voice work, art direction, programming, and design.

DiVita's first in-game appearance was as a NON Native in Revolution X.  He then took on the role of a lifetime as the infamous Beefcake Boy in Cruis'n USA.

Sal first appeared in the Mortal Kombat series in MK3, where he portrayed four different characters including Nightwolf and the cyborg ninjas Cyrax, Sektor, and Smoke.  His work as these four characters would also appear in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, Mortal Kombat Trilogy, Mortal Kombat Advance, and Ultimate Mortal Kombat.  He would go on to play Scorpion in Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero.  His name is listed in the "Special Thanks" section of the credits for Mortal Kombat 4 (for motion capture work he provided), Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, and Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks.

DiVita's first programming job at Midway came in the way of WWF WrestleMania: The Arcade Game.  His arcade work continued as he joined the original design team for NFL Blitz.  He used his arcade sports experience as an art director for MLB Slugfest 2003 and Red Card 2003.  He also lent his hand to the design of the NBA Jam remake in 2003.  In 2005, DiVita lent his voice to The Warrior character in Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows and again in 2006 for Rampage: Total Destruction.

Sal is an unlockable character in both NBA Jam (original) and NBA Jam T.E.
