Modern Remake Of Atari's Arcade Classic 'Gauntlet' Due For Release This Month

Gauntlet-HD-Remake-Released-This-MonthAs awesome as it was to grow up in the eighties, we didn't half burn through countless credits in the arcades. Atari's 1985 coin-op hit Gauntlet was one of the many penny munchers out there, encouraging gamers to 'purchase' more in-game health. Later this month though the credits are no more as WB Games are set to re-release the title with a modern look and retro gameplay.

Similar to the original, this HD offering of Gauntlet is set to revive the four player co-operative action, both locally and online. With a plethora of monsters for the beating, the four different classes - Warrior, Valkyrie, Elf, and Wizard - return to taxing dungeons once more.

Judging by the trailer, it would appear that Gauntlet has been given the right treatment in the remake department - leaving the original gameplay style intact whilst updating the visuals. That said, there's still a few weeks till the game arrives on Steam... a time when we'll need to put aside our nostalgia to critique the remake.

Gauntlet is due to go on sale on Steam at £14.99 on September 23rd.
