Prince of Persia Creator’s New Karateka Remake Confirmed For Wii U


Back in 1984, Prince of Persia creator, Jordan Mechner, developed a beat-em-up known as Karateka. In Karateka, you played as a practitioner of martial arts, who sets out to rescue a princess from the evil Akuma. As you may have heard, Karateka is now getting a modern remake, also developed by Mechner.


This game is in development for the PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and iOS, but an ESRB rating reveals that Karateka is also headed to the Wii U. The game has a T (Teen) rating.


In the new Karateka, you’ll get to play as three Japanese warriors, once again attempting to rescue a princess from an evil warlord.
