Spanish Gamart's Karateka might be a game not familiar to everybody. Apart from the MSX the game was also released on Amstrad CPC, Atari ST/E, Commodore C64 and the Sinclair ZX Spectrum.

Years later, its creator Jordan Mechner decided it was time to give this game a new look and feel on a modern console. The new Karateka will be released on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. Mechner is not a stranger in gaming world. His CV lists games like The Last Express, the whole Prince of Persia saga and the original 1984 version of Karateka.

The remake features a new art style very different from the original. It has been released just last week on Xbox Live Arcade for 800 Microsoft points. The PS3 version is expected on the Playstation Network soon.
