Classic 8-bit hit Karateka remake coming to iOS, Jordan Mechner posts official trailer
Remember the classic 8-bit game Karateka from the dawn of computing? It was scripted and created by one Jordan Mechner you might have heard around his works on the Prince of Persia, and amounted to countless hours of high and low kicks, samurai boss punches, and imprisoned princess saving.

Well, now the classic title is taken out of the basement, dusted off, and is available for Xbox 360 as we speak, but will also be offered for other consoles and PC gaming. It is coming to iOS pretty soon, and we'd wager to guess Android won't be far behind. 

Have a look at the official Karateka trailer below, and reminisce of times passed, when 8-bit graphics were enough to experience full game immersion, with our imagination filling up the rest.
