    Short summary describing this game.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    Karateka is a re-imagining of the 1984 martial arts fighting game of the same name.

    The game has been stated to have a compact 40-Minute play-through but with an emphasis on replay. You will take on the role of three male characters vying for the love of a princess like in many games. Though the game itself is said not to be too challenging, achieving the princess' hand in marriage is to be more difficult.

    The combat system features a rhythm-based style and art by Jeff Marsuda, who has previously worked on The Batman and Jackie Chan Adventures.

    While a Wii U version popped up on the ESRB's website, the game's producer later clarified that version for the system was considered early on but never actually went into development.
