Nintendo DS owners with a craving for old-school hacking and slashing are in luck: Eidos has confirmed a version of Gauntlet for the handheld.
The game, known as an early, multi-player favorite (original arcade version pictured above), will feature local and wi-fi multiplayer and voice over IP support, so you'll be able to strap on some headphones and create elaborate tactics that will boil down to "everyone shoot everything... except food."
“With Gauntlet we’ve revitalised all of the action and fun of the original 1980s arcade classic, whilst updating the visuals and gameplay for today’s DS gamer,” said Ray Livingston, Brand Manager at Eidos. “With four-player Wi-Fi cooperative mode, one of the most memorable multiplayer gaming experiences of all time is back with a bang.”
The game will use both of the DS's screens as a continuous display. It comes out in June for $29.
