Prince of Persia creator Jordan Mechner's next game is just a few weeks from release. Karateka will be arriving in mid-November exclusively on Xbox Live Arcade.

Karateka is a side-scrolling karate game. A lovely lady named Mariko has been kidnapped by the warlord Akuma. Players will rescue her by pummeling many, many people with their fists of fury. Online leaderboards will allow you to see whether your karate skills are the greatest in the land.

Mechner isn't the only high-profile talent attached to the project. The cartoon-like art was provided by Jeff Matsuda, who also worked on Batman: The Animated Series. Grammy-winning composer Christopher Tin (Civilization IV) provided the score.

According to, Karateka will arrive on November 14th. The listing also provides a wealth of new screenshots, which you can check out below.
