Karateka arrives kicking and screa... well, kicking this November

While most gamers will associate the name Jordan Mechner with Prince of Persia, some (including John and myself) think of another, lesser-known title: Karateka. Katateka was the less popular, albeit better version of the classic game Kung-Fu. I played endless hours of it myself on the Apple IIE back during the early 1980‘s.

The game won’t be that obscure for much longer as a remake is coming to the Xbox Live Arcade this November. The 3D remake will be launching on November 14 on Microsoft’s digital service. The game definitely looks a bit different than I remember it, but that is to be expected after nearly 20 years; gameplay is what really matters and hopefully it lives up to the high standard(s) of the original.

You can check out the first screens of the game below.
