Gauntlet To Arrive On Nintendo DS

Gauntlet is set to arrive on the Nintendo DS this October; lovingly reproduced from the Midway classic hack and slash adventure by Eidos Interactive Ltd.

“With Gauntlet we’ve revitalised all of the action and fun of the original 1980s arcade classic, whilst updating the visuals and gameplay for today’s DS gamer,”/em> said Ray Livingston, Brand Manager at Eidos. “With four-player Wi-Fi cooperative mode, one of the most memorable multiplayer gaming experiences of all time is back with a bang.”

A notable feature is Gauntlet’s support of the DS Microphone, which offers VOIP communication between players for communication of strategy. It would be very tricky to do this through text communication on the DS and, as no DS owner can claim not to have a microphone, it should make long-distance multiplayer all the more playable.

You will be able to hack and slash your way through a hearty 40 maps and compete in ranked multiplayer game types such as Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Treasure Hoard.
