Eidos remaking Gauntlet for DS

Online co-op and voice chat promised.

Eidos has revealed it is remaking arcade classic Gauntlet for DS.

Backbone Entertainment of Age of Kings DS fame is in charge and the game is on course for a 20th June release.

Gauntlet DS will have a co-operative focus - up to four players can battle their way through the campaign either locally or via Wi-Fi. Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Treasure Horde multiplayer modes are promised. Plus you'll be able to voice chat with other players using the DS's microphone or headset.

Like its arcade predecessor, Gauntlet DS will be top-down (but this time in 3D). There will be four heroes to choose from: Thor the warrior, Merlin the wizard, Thyra the Valkyrie and Questor the elf.

There are said to be around 40 maps to conquer and roughly 32 enemy types to fill them out with.
