  • Prince of Persia creator, Jordan Mechner, presents the Extended Director’s Cut trailer for Karateka, tempting gamers with a totally revamped version of his classic 8-bit karate classic.

    Adam Lisagor’s humorous video gives a bit of a glimpse into how the game’s karate hero learned to fight before he stormed Akuma’s castle.

    Considering the original game has basically gone untouched for 30 years – in terms of spin-offs and remakes – fans of Mechner and his mega college creation should be chomping at the bit for a chance to jump into this world again.

    The new adventure is available now for Xbox 360 and is coming soon to PlayStation 3, PC (Steam), and iOS.
