There was a BurgerTime spin-off?

I made the decision to buy Majesco's Data East Arcade Classics for Wii as soon as I saw that it would include one of my favorite arcade titles, BurgerTime. Although I completely suck at it, I think it's up there with Bubble Bobble, Donkey Kong and Ms. Pac-Man when it comes to arcade games from the '80s.

Despite my love for the game, I didn't know until a few days ago that a BurgerTime spin-off called Peter Pepper's Ice Cream Factory was released in 1984. Here's a video of the title, courtesy of the folks over at GoNintendo.com:

Surprisingly (to me, at least), Peter Pepper's Ice Cream Factory will appear on Data East Arcade Classics alongside its predecessor whenever it's released (Majesco has yet to annouce a release date, as far as I can tell).
