1 Comment 51 Views

Those of us who are older and have been playing games since Atari, (am I really that old) have a long list of games that we would like to see make a come-back to give us a nostalgic feeling. Most will never make it as the games from that era are too simplicitic for today’s market.  As you moved into other gaming devices, and consoles, the games got better, more colorful, better graphics, and even storylines. I can happily tell you today, that there is one that will be back on the market soon.

Eidos today announced [again] that Gauntlet is coming to the DS. Gauntlet is set in a fantasy-themed universe where evil cloaks the world from the high clouds of Ascendia to the depths of the lava-ridden Abyss. Players can choose from the four classic heroes, Elf, Warrior, Wizard, and Valkyrie, each with their own strengths, weaknesses and special abilities. Throughout the journey, the heroes will slash their way through demonic foes and gain up to four power move abilities to aid them in their battle with evil.

The modern rework of this classic will take full advantage of the hardware capabilities of the Nintendo DS, Gauntlet offers Voiceover IP (VoIP) which allows voice communication through the Nintendo DS microphone, giving players more options to interact with their friends online.

Featuring 40 maps across three realms, Gauntlet will offer fast-paced, retro RPG crusade-style gameplay in addition to new and in-depth multiplayer features including cooperative play and competitive multiplayer. The arcade style competitive multiplayer feature strengthens the addictive Gauntlet experience by introducing ranked multiplayer games like - Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Treasure Hoard game modes, hosted with local Nintendo Wireless play or via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.

Developed by Backbone Entertainment,  Gauntlet is set for release in October exclusively on the Nintendo DS.
