Prince of Persia creator Jordan Mechner is bringing his 1984 side-scrolling beat 'em up Karateka (announced back in February) to the PlayStation Network, meaning a return for the string of increasingly challenging one-on-one battles on your journey to rescue a kidnapped princess called Mariko from an evil warlord. Ah, classic.
The Batman animated series and X-Men comic book artist, Jeff Matsuda is providing the game's distinctive art style, while Grammy award-winning composer Christopher Tin is on soundtrack duties. He won his Grammy for the Civilisation IV soundtrack, in case you're wondering.
Karateka will be heading to PSN soon. A price and actual date has yet to be confirmed, but you can check out some of the first screenshots below. There's six to eyeball in the gallery.
