Jordan Mechner's classic martial arts fighter Karateka
is headed for the Wii U, a recent ESRB rating states. We knew Karateka
was coming to PSN and XBLA, but the ESRB lists PC, iOS and Wii U as platforms as well, suggesting Mechner's retrofitted ambition is deeper than he first teased.
The ESRB describes the new Karateka
as a "rhythm-fighting game" featuring Japanese warriors rescuing a princess, and all we can picture now is Mario in a kimono beating the tar out of some rhythms.
