Karateka heading to iOS devices this month

By , on November 6, 2012

Jordan Mechner might be best known for his work on Prince of Persia, but the legendary game creator has a pretty impressive and varied back catalogue as well.

We've already seen an iOS version of his point and click adventure The Last Express, and now we're being treated to an updated edition of his classic beat 'em up Karateka.

While the screens on show here are from the home console version, it's likely that the iOS port is going to do just as much justice to the redesigned fighter as its home based brethren.

Described as a "rhythm based story-fighter" in the press release, Karateka is an update rather than a straight remake, but still sees you battling foes in an attempt to free your beloved Mariko.

There's no concrete release date on the iOS side of things yet, but the game is out tomorrow on Xbox Live Arcade, and should hopefull kick and punch its way onto mobile devices soon.
